Overall today was a good day. It didn’t start off well though. When I was in the shower I slipped off my shower chair. Don’t worry though because I was able to get myself back up. I will admit I didn’t get up quickly. I tried to just pull myself up and failed. Instead of thinking about the best way to get up I just did something. After a minute of failing to get back up on the chair I stopped and thought about the best way to get back up on the chair. And you know what… I thought it out and I got right back up with no problems. This was a great example of how I need to think things out before I do. I was never good at that. But, I am get better everyday.
After finally get dressed I made my way to the bus stop so I meet Erika at ASU to cook dinner at the Ronald McDonald House. After spending a bit of time in a hospital myself it feels good to give back to someone in the same position. I had a huge amount of support during my time at the hospital and to give someone else a little bit of help was nice. This is something I wil be doing again.
Since my time in the hospital I have thought about giving back to someone that may need some help. With all the support and help I recieved it is time to pay it forward. When I got home tonight I thought that cheering up children at Childrens Hospital would be a great idea. So, I am going to try that. I will let you know how it goes when I do it.
I talked to the carsalesman today and we decided on a price for the Element I want. So, today I am going to pull the trigger. Erika will drive it until I get the needed modifications. Plus, it is easier to get into the Element that Erika’s Corrola. I will get you pictures tomorrow.
This is the last update. With an idea from someone who has gone through what Erika and I are going through I found someone who will help me with cleaning up my apartment. It takes me so long now and getting someone to help will allow me to do other things. Plus, Erika doesn’t feel the need to clean when she comes over. This is a win-win. The person is a woman who lives in the apartment complex and is happy to just help. According to her she has the time and could use a little extra money.
Today was a good day. Check one in the win box.
