Official Moving Day!

Today we officially get to "move in" to our new little cottage apartment. I am very happy and excited. We are going to go in and paint some accent walls today! We will begin to move some items in and will try to move the beds this weekend. It feels really great to be able to have a place to call "Our Home" after all this time.

We will have a great appreciation for our space. You do not realize how much you long to do things like - running dishes in a dishwasher, cooking REAL meals and stocking a large refrigerator until you have gone without! Simple pleasures.

We are starting fresh - we do not have much. We need to get a TV as we gave all of ours away. We need new bedding and towels. It will be nice to have a new start. I have some great ideas for organizing our space and being creative on a shoestring. I love decorating and creating - so I am really excited!

Yesterday afternoon Taylor had another angry outburst. Stace drove him to the mental health clinic where the social worker stayed safely in the building watching as Stace attempted to restrain Taylor until the police arrived. He was able to calm down and the police released him to us stating that he did not meet the "imminent danger" protocol.

I grew very upset as I do not know what it is going to take for someone to help us. He has no recollection of the incident and we are now scheduling him for a neurological work up as he may be suffering seizures. I pray that we get help very soon as I can not take much more of this stress.

We will continue to take it moment by moment - and I look forward to being able to update you with good news soon. Please pray for Taylor and that we will be able to find a program that has an opening ASAP.
