We had a pretty good day today. Phew! We actually went to the mall because Kevin needed larger pants than the ones we bought the other day, so we exchanged those, swapped the new shoes he bought too for a different pair and then we decided to go to the Golden Coral for a quick (ha!) dinner.
It was so funny because we actually ended up standing in line (hence the Ha! above. That place was packed) behind some folks from Clarion, PA - a neighboring community to our home in East Brady. We got seated right next to them too so we all just carried on and had a good time. Their daughter was celebrating her birthday and Kevin even sang to her with the employees.
After that we went to Target because we needed milk and we actually closed the store down, lol. Kevin gets totally immersed in the electronics/movies section and I can't get him to leave. I wish Target had benches like Walmart does.
All total - we were gone maybe 5-6 hours. And we had no problems, only took Tylenol once and Kev was in a good mood the whole time. It was one of those rare, but wonderful days.
Let's just hope tomorrow is the same. Or at least partially.
And thanks everyone for the support! Times are a little tough, but I feel confident we will work through it. I do believe it's a stage and think it will pass in time - with some help. We just have to figure out what kind of help. It's a definite problem that Kevin can't communicate as actual therapists need to hear his feelings to work their magic.
We'll figure it out though - we always do. Some days it just takes longer than others...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
