Getting in my wheelchair on my own

Laura went back to school yesterday. I was a bit sad to see her go. I had a knot in my stomach as her bus pulled away and felt tears spring to my eyes. If anyone has seen that Subaru commercial with the father following his daughter's school bus, you'd know how I feel.  That commercial always makes me cry.

I homeschooled my student from 11-5.  Jeff had a meeting with his Dad so he set me up with food and we discovered a way I can get in my wheelchair alone.

Jeff put my wheelchair against the sofa. I get on the sofa from the floor. It's much easier now I'm not pregnant. Then I scoot onto my wheelchair.. The only part I can't do is buckle my seatbelt.

The sad part is that Jeff had to take Jason because I'm not exactly capable to meet his physical needs. It drives me crazy that I can't but I've been trying to focus on the positive.  I'm happy Jeff can take him and he's with his father.

I had a good teaching day. I enjoy teaching and having a positive impact on someone's life.

Last night was the first time in awhile that I could lay comfortably in Jeff's arms as we watched TV. Even pregnant, I couldn't really get comfortable enough to lay there. Jeff and I have been adjusting to our new roles of parents of two and an infant. We've had our rough spots especially after exhausting nights, but we always try to come back and make it right and stronger.
