Busy week

Bob Gregory a fine appliance guy repaired the door of our fridge, so it no longer clunks down and hurts my wrists. He also gave me advice about my other appliances. I highly recommend him if you live in the area.

My primary care physician recommended some homeopathic medicines and fish oil or flax seed oil for six weeks. I'm down with the oil. I'm trying the homeopathic stuff with some skepticism, but I figured it can't hurt. My tendonitis is slowly getting better, but slowly, very slowly.

On Thursday was Torin's last library class. If I had more energy, I'd have already waxed eloquent about how much Little T loved these classes. He stands up to see the librarian read the stories better. He follows the motions to the songs. He loves playing with the toys afterwards. He peers into the faces of the other little kids. But mostly he loves the parts where we move him around to the music. He loves shaking his little instrument. He copies the teacher exactly.

It was good for me to see that small as he is and nonverbal as he sometimes can be, socially he's two. Very affirming.

I know I should sign him for a music class, but haven't found a class that fits with our busy schedule and isn't full. I guess the winter semester. I'm also going to sign him up for gym class with his sister in December. It'll be at the same time so I won't have to do anything extra.

Reading all this I realise that it's perhaps no wonder I'm tired even apart from the drugs, I have at least two appointments every morning, often more. Weekends are also busy. Then in the afternoons after 2, I have nothing to do but sit at home. I can't drive. I can't even walk out of the house farther than my cul-du-sac, because I can't drive and Little T can't walk that far yet.

I'm working on getting Paratransit. I just had a phone interview. I hope they can understand why I need it even though I can walk.

I should think the Paratransit would be used to dealing with all kinds of transportation needs ... my Grandma is also capable of walking, but can't walk far and certainly can't drive-- she uses Paratransit where she lives. For instance.

Trader Joe's sells flax seed, both whole & ground.

If you want other sources, seaweed also contains omega-3 fatty acids. Walnuts contain alpha-linoleic acids, which are the precursors to omega-3 fatty acids. Some of the dark green vegetables contain either the omega-3 acids, or the ALAs.
