Jack is back home as you can see. We missed him so much but he was happy to come home and happy when he woke up this morning. He didn't have a diaper rash so Gracie's mom did a good job of forcing Gracie to take care of him properly. Gracie goes into rehab today which will be nice for us, no more awkward Wednesday evening visits. She'll be gone for forty-two days, if she stays in rehab. We'll see. I believe she also has court tomorrow, via telephone or video, with regards to her assault charge in BC.
It was nice having a break from Jack but I noticed the energy in our house was down while he was gone. I feel better when he's around, more upbeat, even though I'm more tired. Mind you I was beat after work on Monday and I didn't have to take care of Jack, so it's not just him that tires me out.
Our guardianship hearing is in less than two weeks now and I try not to think about it. I try not to think about the coming years either because who knows what will happen? Certainly not me. Ten years ago I never thought I'd be remarried and raising a grandchild but I am and I'm glad.
Work continues on. I'm less invested in the place which helps. I stress less about everything and let things slide off my back more easily.
One of the young nurses braided my hair at work yesterday and I loved how it looked. I'm enjoying the long grey hair.
I'm off today and I'm going to get a massage for my aching back. Probably walk the dogs. The weather is shockingly nice, 7C this morning.
Things I'm thankful for today.
Jack is safe and home
A peaceful home
Enough money to pay our bills
What are you thankful for today?
