Husband's last camping trip

Almost normal

So, today is a new day.  Yesterday, not so great.  I went to a dark place and had a hard time coming out of it.  I cannot and will not let this get me down.  So, for today, I will be in a better place.  I have to.

I had posted a while ago about having a Home Health Nurse come in.  After doing the paperwork, I was told it could take as long as 2 months, or, as short as 3 weeks.  Being that we are moving in 2 months, I have decided to not have a nurse come in until we get settled up in Colorado.  I don't want husband to be any more confused than he already is.  So it'll be put on the back burner until late summer.

For the time being, I can handle husband.  He relies on me for everything.  He doesn't like the idea of a nurse, but, I have told him that this way, I would be able to get out and run errands, grocery shop and he seemed to understand that.  Of course, he told me that he could just go with me, running errands and grocery shopping.  Uh, no, he can't.  My rules, remember?

Here, at my apartment complex, you are required to give a 60 days notice if you don't plan on renewing your lease.  I was given a lease renewal last week.  They offered me a 12 month lease price, a 15 month lease price or, if I choose to go month to month, the price is outrageous.  It is, in fact, $300 more per month if I go month to month.  When I read that, I almost fell off my chair.  $300 more?  And, if I choose to move at the end of my lease, I will have to pay that outrageous price, prorated, of course, for the 10 days I plan on staying here in August.  With paying for the new apartment up in the Springs, renting a truck, gas, plus a deposit, why, I will just not have enough.  Outrageous, I'll tell you.

When I pay my rent for June, I will bring in my written 60 day notice (required), and see if they will work with me.  It's only for 10 days in August!!

That's been on my mind. 

For the most part, husband had a decent day yesterday.  No hallucinations.

When I put him to bed last night, I told him there would be no getting out of bed in the middle of the night.  I jokingly, (OK, not jokingly, but, he doesn't know that) told him that if he got out of bed and wandered the apartment, he would be in big trouble with me in the morning.  He slept all night.  Yay.

When I got up this morning, he was awake and said, "Well, I was good and didn't get up."  We had a laugh about that.  I told him he was a good boy for not only staying in bed, but, for remembering to stay in bed.  He seemed to get a kick out of that one.

So, we woke up off to a good start today.  I really, really like waking up to a good start.  It all seemed almost normal this morning. 

I like that word.  Normal.
