I realized today that nap time is a requirement. With all the training and activities during the full day, I realized I need a nap before dinner. If I don’t get a nap, I am done by 6 p.m. I don’t believe that this is a permament deal until I am adjusted to the rigors of my days.
Bryan and family were around today again. It was great having them. They brought me lunch from the outside. I had a fast-food burger for the first time in some time. For those wondering, it was a Good Times Burger. I will admit it was very tasty. So, thanks Yateses.
Overall, it was a good day. I am slowly feeling stronger and ready for the challanges ahead of me. Today was the same ole’, same ole’.
I was able to get Erika on the phone while I was in my nap. It was so nice to talk to her. It really brightened my day. However, I realized while I was talking to her that my down times are usually just after my day ends. During the day I am working towards something and gaining a sense of independence. But, once all that training ends, and I am left to myself, I get down. I wonder how this happened to me. When will this nightmare end? Can this end? I guess some of these questions are all about the process. Don’t worry though, I am still very optimistic.
After dinner, a couple of friends came for a visit. Dave Reed and the Trancedis. We cracked jokes and we talked of better times. We may even go to a game of sometime in a couple weeks. I have to get clearence first. though. This is something that I want to do and work towards. I can’t wait.
Erika comes back this weekend. I am so excited to have her here. I really do miss her. Talking on the phone every night is nice, but seeing her and having her here is so much nicer. Over the last year, we haven’t had a lot of time that I have been working in the valley. I dream of the day when I can go home and be home.
Well that all I got tonight. Have a great Thursday.
