We had a great appointment for Rebecca with a new specialist last week. We'll be seeing her again in January. And we got great updates from her teachers about how well she's doing in school. We also had another session with the speech therapist. Now we need to keep up with the exercises at home.
I think we are about done with our Christmas baking projects. I do have to make one or two more things for my grandparents (they are getting edible gifts this year :). I already made a batch of granola this morning. I had intended to make a new batch of oreos, but we'll see if there is time. I am getting low on soaked graham crackers and golden grahams. So maybe I'll try to squeeze those in as well.
On to the menu. I don't have all of the breakfasts and lunches planned out yet. I'll fill the rest in as the week goes on. I often don't figure it out until the night before. I'm trying to really listen to my body and what it's craving/what it's lacking. So I usually wait until the night before to figure out my breakfast when I have a better idea of what I need. Sometimes I'm really craving salty foods sometimes sweet. So I go with what my body tells me.
This could be a week of stress, recovery and start over again. Yesterday was stress. Today is recovery (I've had so many great mornings/days lately...now after a day of travel it's back to all tensed up). I'm going to do my best to eat well and take time for myself. And try to enjoy the festivities and the real reason we celebrate. Happy Birthday Jesus! Merry Christmas everyone!
