Kevin’s Weekly Journal 10/15 through 10/21/18
Well, I’ve officially been alive for a quarter of a century. I had a fantastic birthday weekend, and you can read my column from this week about turning 25 here: https://smanewstoday.com/2018/10/16/sma-words-wisdom-turning-25/?amp.
I spent most of the week working so that I could take Friday off, and I’m glad I did. I stayed really productive up through Thursday, and we have some exciting things going on at BioNews. I had to cancel physical therapy last Monday as my appointment conflicted with a conference call, but I’ll be back this week. Though with how much I ate this weekend, I’m not sure how my body will like stretching and exercising. I ate out twice on my birthday, and then had a big dinner with my family on Saturday. Plus I was showered with cookies and candy. But hey, it’s ok to spoil yourself here and there.
I’ll write about this more in another post later, but I did have some trouble with my van on Thursday. It’s fixed now, but it is an old one. This is our dodge caravan which we’ve had since 2005. We got an MV1 a few years ago and use that as our primary vehicle, but we kept the dodge so I could use it for friends to drive me. It still works, and it gives me independence because I don’t have to share it with my parents. We got it fixed in time for me to take it out on my birthday when I was out with friends. My caregiver Randy and his fiancé drove me, and we all had a great time.
I hope everyone here has a fantastic week, and thanks for joining us here. I’m grateful for the opportunity to connect with you all, and to navigate life with SMA together.
