Here we go, another month and August to boot! Welcome to the Dog Days of Summer. We are expecting 108 heat index today and 111 tomorrow! Joy, joy! This is the only part of Summer that I dislike. The intense heat. The inability to do ANYTHING but sweat! However, I'll take this over ice cold freezing any day!
I haven't mentioned much about Miss T's panic attacks of late because it's just been the normal "having trouble getting to sleep" kind. And I know a lot of the intensity of them comes from diet and sleep/lack of sleep. Like today for instance. Late to bed last night, calling me from dance camp at 11am today with troubles. So I head over there to talk with her......I gave her 1/2 of a Xanax just to cut the edge for her. Dropped off her Gameboy so she could occupy her mind when not participating. Showed her the "breathing in the paper bag" trick, to see if this would help some too. So far so good.
I'm getting a bit frustrated with the therapy for Tara....just because I want immediate solutions. Just not gonna happen. I know this takes time, but I don't SEE progress.
I had lunch with my friend Ray today...he's a sweetie. He reminds me of a teddy bear. He also needs a good woman, but I don't know any! He said I should have called him to swim with me the other night!!!! I told him the offer was always open!
I have a "7 Days of Inspiration" list on my computer. Since today is August 1, I'll leave y'all with Day 1's comment:
Think good things about yourself - other people do!
