It's never too early to start celebrating and thinking about everything you are grateful for and starting the holiday season. Nothing puts you in a better holiday spirit than putting up the Christmas tree. With that done last night, I went to work this morning ready to have a pre-thanksgiving lunch with everyone who works … Continue reading It’s Christmas time!
A few weeks ago, during a trip to Home Depot, we bought the kitchen cabinet handles for my kitchen. Between our busy life during the week and one thing or another during weekends, we really didn't have time to put them on the doors. I did have time to unscrew a door and screw it … Continue reading We’re still decorating
After a very long day yesterday, I have been tired all day, since this morning when I took my medicine at 8 am and went right back to sleep for 2 hours and a half.

It doesn't end! I moved in exactly one week ago, last Friday and I just unpacked the last of my stuff; I think. One week to unpack everything! That's too much. But, unpacking doesn't mean everything is in their right place, it just means I don't have anymore boxes, but it's still a little messy. … Continue reading Survived week one
Between today and yesterday I've scraped to much paint off the floors in my apartment, I think the paint spills just keep multiplying and every time I get one out, two moths just appear. Yesterday, it took me forever because it was just me and a very small saw, which was difficult to hold and … Continue reading I have a kitchen and half a bathroom

We're about two months into our whole remodeling/moving adventure recently started doubting if we were going to finish in time. We had a deadline because my mom starts work on August first.

This weekend I was finally trusted to spend two nights at home by myself. It wasn't safe for me to stay alone before in case I had a seizure, but being over three years seizure free, I earned the trust to spend a weekend by myself. I wasn't alone, I had my dogs. I spent … Continue reading Two days of independence
Traumatic Brain Injury survivors, like myself, have a lot of trouble controlling our emotions and recognizing, not only our own but others' too. Medicine can help with controlling our emotions, but they can't help us recognize them. I take an anti depressant but I still have to constantly ask people if they are kidding ( … Continue reading My emotional compass
