Last year, I had planned on going on the annual canoe trip and maybe even taking Marlon. It's not something I have participated in since having kids. For various reasons, it didn't work out. I had figured Marlon's pains would be gone and in retrospect, I am glad we didn't end up going.
It is a year ago today that I took Linsy and Marlon to Niagara Falls. I wondered if the distraction may help his pains. No, he was just miserable because his arms hurt and he was unhappy.
Luckily, today was a much better day than a year ago. Yesterday with lunch, Pamela had falafels. Marlon tried some and since then he has been asking for more. I didn't get any today but maybe tomorrow. We'll see.
This evening, I did go for a walk with a friend and her dog. It was nice, but it was after 9 when I got back and Marlon was not happy I had been gone for over an hour at bedtime. So he stayed up a bit later, we had a chat, and I have been forgiven.
