Just us.....

Still putting one foot in front of the other.........

Busy as all get out....Not sure what day/time it is on most days as I wait for one day to end and the other to smack me in the butt....

THEN and only then do I realize 24 hours have passed...

Walking around in a zombie like state sleeping 3 hours on most nights and on the chance I get lucky I may get 4 and sometimes a rare 5 hours.....

Weekends I try to refuel cramming in as many hours of sleep as I possibly can so come Monday I'm fully charged......Most weekends that plan works

This weekend......Not so much

Look out Monday! Seems I'll smashing into you with my "low battery" light blinking boldly between my eyes.....Maybe I can find somewhere to plug in for a charge? If only it were that easy ;)

Jophies doing well and has been giggling ALL DAY LONG......He was able to sit up in the bed for a long period of time today as well as several other times as of late. I contribute that to the baclofen.....I just goosed him up by 10 more mg. at 9pm bringing him to his daily 60mg.......So far so good!

Fall is approaching quickly and with that I feel a shiver down my spine as my PTSD smacks me around a bit reminding of past nightmares.....I'm trying hard to push those thoughts aside so I can enjoy Jophie and the fall season for what it "Really IS" and not for what the past has molded and etched into my mind.....

Jophies smile and giggles seem to be helping me out a bit ;)

Today marks 3 weeks IN A ROW that I've been able to get to Church....First time in 10 years since I've been able to enter those doors.....I find myself pinching myself often checking for signs of reality verses a dream like state......

I'm happy to report that reality it is as I have left Narnia far behind.........

For now...(I really musn't shut those doors forever lest I need a quick escape from reality in the future) ;)

No current pictures of Jophie just yet...I have something for him to wear but he needs a hair cut(BAD) and I need a spare moment to cut his hair then another spare moment for his photo shoot......I'm working on it but time these days is very precious and on the days I do have a moment, sleep is my main priority so I can continue on with this crazy pace.....Phew!

Fall also rings in the season for Family Portraits/Soccer Portraits/Pumpkin Patch Portraits and YES even Christmas Portraits.....Still trying to fit 9 sittings in my cramped schedule before all the leaves are gone......Was hoping for one this weekend but things got all jumbled up and we were unable to work it in....Next weekend I have 2 scheduled...Crossing fingers nothing puts a cramp in those.....

Please continue to pray for Jophie as we approach this fall/winter season and for me that I can continue at this pace......

I NEED to.....I HAVE to

Trina and Jophie
