Where Would You Fly – Coming Soon as an Ebook

April 4 2020

Exciting news!! Lillian Darnell’s book, Where Would You Fly, is being converted to an ebook. Finally!! We’ll let everyone know when it’s finished. We’ll have a special for free or low cost, and perhaps maybe a mini-launch. This opens it up to a much wider audience. YAY!!

Only One Item Left

April 3 2020:

Another one checked off the list! New bank account set up for Lillian’s SSI! Finished at 5:56 pm today. The entire process has taken about a month, to month and a half, due to needing paperwork from SS.

This last part has taken about a week and a half as we did it through email, text, phone, and DocuSign. Yet, it’s done!! Only one item left now for the Lillian-Turned-18-Paperwork-And-To-Do-List-Palooza … Creating an ABLE account.

Overflowing With Gratitude – Loving Kindness in Action Followed by Quaking and Rolling

March 20 2020

Overflowing with gratitude for a beautiful human who made a grocery store run for us. I went grocery shopping last week BEFORE the craziness began, and it was just a regular weekly trip. So, we were running out of things.

Except for walks, we’ve not left the house since Saturday. Lillian has a weak immune system so best to stay home. Incredibly grateful for your kindness, Constance Aguilar!!! Team TLC thanks you!!!

And … how about an earthquake to go along with dinner tonight? Sure …

It was big for this area (5.0), but, I don’t think there was damage anywhere. It’s just the most unsettling feeling. It always takes me a bit to get my equilibrium settled. Lillian felt it the most, Thomas didn’t feel a dam* thing (HA!), and I felt it, but what got my attention was the loud noise the 3 big windows in the living room made! Hugs to you!! xoxo

Thank you Toilet Paper Faeries!! Who knew there were faeries for TP? Well, there are and we are grateful to all of you. We’re also good with toilet paper now. Deeply grateful and incredibly blessed by your thoughtfulness and kindness. 🙏♥️♥️♥️🙏 A photo of the sky as I chatted with the faeries.

**Update April 4, 2020: We’ve had another trip to Trader Joe’s by different friend, in addition to using Insta Cart. We are incredibly thankful and deeply blessed.

New story from Lillian …

Once many years ago, there lived a girl whose name was Lisa. Lisa lived with her parents in a huge castle. Her parents were Leah and Andy. Lisa loved having fun. They lived happily in the castle.

Sweaty Hands for Fingerprinting

November 8 2019:

Another marked off the list. Fingerprinting done. She was so anxious and worried, they had a heck of a time getting her prints because her hands were sweating like crazy. They were incredibly kind and understanding.

She must really like volunteering at the library as that’s the only way I could get her here, by reminding her it’s required once one is 18 years old. She’s heading into her third year volunteering. Hopefully, one day soon she’ll go without me as her sidekick. That’s the plan anyway!

**Update – January 20 2020: It turns out they were so sweaty, that the fingerprints weren’t acceptable. However, they did not request she re-do them, due to her situation and that she’s been volunteering at the library since age 16. She completed a few additional pieces of paperwork and we’re done with this one!

Survival of the Reno Downtown Library – Lillian Darnell

November 2 2019:

Yesterday we survived visiting the downtown library so that Lillian could sign volunteer paperwork and get the fingerprinting form. That’s the one library we cannot visit due to Lillian’s depth perception, balance issues, and an uncooperative proprioceptive system. It’s a 4 level building with huge open spaces and staircases. Makes her head spin and legs shaky. It’s beautiful and I love this location. Just not a good fit for her!

There was a huge amount of anxiety over having ….
