Throwback Post: A Day Full of Positive Consequences

**THROWBACK POST**

March 9 2013:

I had to dish out a negative consequence to Mr. T last night due to a little incident.

After choosing to go to his room for some calming down and reflection and watching the “D iz for Different” video journey (he loves watching it every movie night), he had these things to say, “I love my life. Life is so happy it makes me cry. We have all we need and want. We have food. We have a house. We have a car and most of all we have each other.” Then he wrote a note to Lillian that she is very kind and he loves her and his eyes were sweating because he was so happy!

Dishing out negative consequences is no fun y’all. Yet, the rewards to the soul that receives it far outweigh the uncomfortable moments. Here’s to a day full of positive consequences!

Throwback Post: Sunset Walk With Cormorants and a Beaver Followed By Respite

**THROWBACK POST**

Sunset walk with Lillian yesterday. Incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Nature is a blessing. She does her best to fill us up when we’re feeling empty. She also adds to our joy and peace when we’re joyful and peaceful. Mother Nature is the Best!!

We had company for tonight’s walk! They got to see the ducklings, goslings, cormorants, a huge frog, and the beaver! YAY!

We went over to The Romano Duo’s temporary home for the next 4 days. Had some fun at the pool. They get to have a sleepover Monday night!! First night of respite for me since last August. xoxo

Thomas received some great gifts!

A basketball, volleyball (so we can use the great courts here), a shirt, a hoodie, a desk chair, a homemade card from Lillian, a turntable, an album, and a photo book of our date days over the past year. I still need to make a homemade card or poem for him.

First Dinner with The Romano Duo and Dark Chocolate

October 23 2018:

First dinner with The Romano Duo in their new place in Dayton. What a treat!!! They made me my own pot of vegetarian pasta sauce!

For fun, we drove through Virginia City on the way here. We’ll leave earlier next time so we can stop for pictures.

Next time we’re gonna have the ingredients so I can have a virgin Bloody Mary!!! It’ll be just like old times, but different! We all had a great time!!! 🎉🎉🎉

I walked in Trader Joe’s to get a few items and walked out with Dark chocolate heaven. Wow!! 🖤🍫🖤
