Life without stairs

We have been in our new RANCH STYLE home for about a day now and awesome doesn't even begin to describe it. I have learned to live with my disease, but it requires a lot of limiting my movement and conserving energy. I had fallen into several routines that kind of suck, but were necessary in order to make it through the day. For example, I wouldn't leave my room before Parker woke up because I didn't want to make an extra trip down the stairs. That's just ONE thing. There are dozens of equally limiting things that I was doing, just to avoid the pain of crawling up and down the stairs.

I am pleased to report that I just enjoyed my first breakfast without Parker trying to steal my cereal in TWO YEARS. P is snoozing away happily in his room and I am free to use the rest of the house as I please. I am free!!

We move next week. The packing has been hard, but we've had help from some awesome friends and that's made it easier. I am excited for the new place: handicapped accessible, fantastic schools, and near our current home so we won't have to change doctors etc.

It will be amazing to be able to access all of my home without difficulty. My RA was controlled when we bought our current home (which has stairs) and its been difficult to not have access to half of the house a lot of the time. Seriously I can't even imagine what this is going to be like. Life is going to be so much easier... I'm going to feel like I am cheating or something!

Parker said his first prayer (with help) tonight. It was such a sweet moment for our family.

Soooo tired

That one week P slept in past 5 30 was the best week of my life. I swear, God sent me an early riser as some kind of joke.

In other news maybe I should break down and buy him pajamas that fit...

P loves to cook with me, and most of the time I am happy to include him. Sometimes I need him out of the way, and the only way to get him out of my hair is to set him up with a bunch of dried beans and various cooking utensils.

Pre School

While all the other kids were crying because their parents were leaving... my lil guy was crying because I wouldn't let him steal another kids granola bar.
