I have SO MANY THINGS to update you all about, but now’s not the time. Because honestly, none of them are positive. And I really don’t enjoy being a negative person. On the plus side, I’ve lost 10 lbs of the GINORMOUS amount of weight I need to lose. Jack’s anxiety medication is helping him to focus better at school, although he’s still his usual hyper-self at home. Baby steps, baby steps. I’ve repainted Jack’s playroom and I’m in the process of turning it into a sensory room. So we’re hanging in there.
Most (if not all) of you didn’t know my grandfather, Matthew Sheedy. He died recently. You know the old adage “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”? Well, my grandfather managed to silence everyone who knew him. But he wasn’t all bad. There was a smidgen of good in him. Okay, maybe half of a smidgen of good. He was actually an incredibly gifted artist/engineer. He turned the basement of his house into a model train station of epic proportions. Even the people that disliked him the most would tell you that his artistic talents had no bounds.
I want to share with all of you the incredible side of my grandfather, Matthew Sheedy. Here are some pictures of his creations. They are truly amazing.
