Day 325 | AUGUST 01, 2022
Good Evening Friends; today is day 325 of our new and fantastic life!
Today is my birthday! And I have so much to be grateful for!
I decided to start sleep training baby Julien since my mom was leaving very soon; he woke up at 4:45a, and he began to cry; I told my mom to wait and not go to him, and we waited no more than 5 minutes, and he went back to sleep! Wow! That was easy :); around 6:00 am, he started to cry, this time much louder; I once again told her to wait; this time was more like 10 minutes, and he went back to sleep, so I was up at 7 am, took my shower and by 7:40a, I was ready to go downstairs, baby Julien was asleep, I went into his room and woke him up.
I pray this will be the new normal once vovo is on leaves.
This morning, I took my mom on a little shopping trip, and we had a great time; and we ended up at Costco and ate lunch there; my mom loves their Chicken bake .
As you know, Charlie had arranged a fantastic gift for my birthday! It was amazing to have a two-night staycation at a local hotel and several relaxing activities, including a float and a sensory deprivation tank! I have never done it before, and I must say, it was one of the most relaxing things I have done; I was able to get inside of my mind and have the most explicit connection with myself, with no distractions; I highly recommend it for anyone that is not claustrophobic, it will help you relax feel reconnected with yourself.
Charlie was so thoughtful with her gift; she even sent me delicious school-covered strawberries; part of me is sad that I am not with Charlie, but the other part is so grateful for this break!
I ended the evening with a great dinner and drinks with my business partner and friend Jon, it has been a while since we talked, and I am so grateful for him; he has been a fantastic friend to me during these challenging times! It was great to catch up.
Enough about me; Charlie has a good day; she is feeling good and is counting the hours to be home tonight. They will cut a big part of her pain meds; please pray for her to overcome the pain and stay strong.
During my float today, I deeply analyzed my life, and I feel so blessed; I have so much to be grateful for it, and Charlie is on the top of my list! I could not imagine a life without her!
Thank you for all your love and support!
If I could ask for a gift, it would be for you to purchase your copy of our book! Doing it will help us spread our story and give hope to anyone in need.
Thank you, and God Bless You!
