Another quiet day. Occasional nausea but overall pretty good. A present we bought for Marlon's friend's birthday arrived so he had fun wrapping it. We went outside a few times. Marlon was playing with sticks. I was happy to see that. It has been a while and he likes his sticks. I remember a few years ago Marlon came in the house crying big tears, very upset. He broke one of his sticks. Ever since he could walk, he has had a stash. Appreciating different uses and shapes. This particular stick was well-weighted and balanced. He ended up getting a replacement but still missed 'that' stick. Today he was going to show me a trick he was doing with two sticks, but one of them broke, so it didn't work. He wasn't very upset.
In the afternoon we went for a walk together. Otherwise he had computer time, read, and just hung out. He and I played a game together and wanted to play cards but couldn't get others involved.
