Well, it's been 10 months. Last time I only made it 7, so this is good. In lieu of heading back to the hospital, I'm going to a respite center for people with MR and ASDs. It should just be for a few weeks. I can go to work from there and everything, although I'm hopefully going to take a week off and get my feet back on the ground. Elsie P will go go Mom's. Leigh will still come to visit before she leaves for California (and she will bring Felicity, the American Girl doll who is going away forever and thus I'll never get her because she's expensive, but I'm just over the moon to hang out with her for a while...).
I will have my cell phone, my regular clothes, access to a computer, my weighted blanket, Tigger, access to my own toiletries (trust me, this is huge, lol)... even my own room.
Will let you know how it's going when I get there!
