Nehemiah and I are all moved into our house, and the address change is official. The move last week went quite well and I didn't have to lift anything, not even a box! My movers aka family members were great. It was bitter sweet saying goodbye to my friend/landlord however. If she didn't move to New Orleans, I wouldn't be living in her house and neither of us would be exploring the new journeys that have presented themselves for us. She and I still manage to chat just about everyday.
The greatest news, Miah is sleeping in his own room in his own bed! I'm so proud of the little guy and he's quite proud of himself. He's allowed to come into my bed in the morning, and so far I've been really good about sticking to this rule. He does wake up in the middle of the night, but I stand outside his door and settle him down. Sometimes I go in and pat his back and he falls right back to sleep. He likes his radio on and the door closed. He also likes it really dark, which is still a bit shocking to me.
I'm still working on strenghthening my back at physical therapy, but so far so good. Each week I'm making progress and I'm not in as much pain. I'm going to a new physician who happens to be a Christian who practices Eastern Medicine. She truly believes in the holistic approach, so she gave me a ton of insight about what I need to be doing to help this sciatica problem. The bad news is my allergies are extremely bad, so I'm on a restricted diet. This means no flour/wheat products, so my diet is lean meat, veggies, and fruit. I do feel better when I don't eat the good stuff like bread, so I guess I can't really complain.
School is great. I have a 96 in one class and an 87 in the seminar I'm taking. The session is over in 2 weeks, then it's on to math. I've been trying to stay ahead on assignments, so that I can spend my nights unpacking. Life is thinning out and I'm making more room to breath. Can't wait to post again more regularly.
