Respite

We have asked (for the first time since we've had T) for a break. T will go to stay with another foster family for a few days while J and I take some time for ourselves.

I have never been away from him for longer than 12 hours so it will be a little weird.

I don't know what he's going to do with this family - whether he will steal food or tell them that we starve him. Those are the two big ones. I certainly don't want to open myself up for an investigation because he lies but we really need this break and if that's what happens. then that's what happens. Our cw knows he lies. His therapist knows he lies. I think we'll be okay.

J and I haven't decided where we're going yet. Her birthday is the 28th so we should go wherever she wants but I really don't feel like flying to Cleveland just to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (again). However, there is that kick ass stationery store in the mall.....

In other news I am not feeling very well. My throat is killing me and my ears are hurting. My whole body aches and I'm so sleepy! I haven't developed a cough but it could be on it's way. I don't want to be sick while T is gone! I want to enjoy myself! I guess I'd better rummage through the medicine box for something to ward this yuckness away. Maybe I'll go to bed early tonight too.

Did you figure out where you're going yet?

Well, since I had a flat tire yesterday (that NTB says is shredded on the inside and can't be repaired) now I have to buy a new tire. I also need brakes pretty badly so now I don't think I can afford to go anywhere.

If anything, we may take a day trip on Sunday or Tuesday.

Our rentor is moving out next week and a guy J works with wants to buy the house so we have to do some minor work over there this weekend too.

So much for a vacation!

Isn't that how it ALWAYS happens?! The last time I had a few days off from work, I got sick on my way home from the last shift. Because busy women's bodies only let their guard down when it's safe. Like when it's time for a break. Good luck!
