House Fire Saga Update #7 - June 26, 2019

Update May 2020 - I'm currently going back through my Facebook posts and deciding what I want to leave up for public consumption and what I want to leave private (mostly photos of family that I don't want to leave accessible forever). I thought posting the text of those posts, along with some of the photos I'm okay with leaving public, here on the blog and backdating the posts to the days they went up would be a good alternative.

If you've landed here in the midst of a difficult season (that is difficult for no fault of your own), I hope this helps. Leave a comment or send me a message (catpollockwrites @ gmail .com - remove the spaces) if you want someone to talk to, or even just someone to listen.

House fire saga update #7:

Not much to update today. Today, Mom spent some time going through clothes that family and friends have given (mostly for the kids), while Dad went about his normal routine.

Tomorrow is going to be an especially tough day for James - the day program he attends has moved into a new location, and the first day there is in the morning. I don't know if you know this about autistic individuals, but changes in routine can throw them off. He's already struggling with the changes the fire has made, and we're all expecting things to be rough for him tomorrow.

Also, if you would like to send a gift card, you can send them to:

New Life Baptist Church
8701 W. Encanto Blvd
Phoenix, AZ 85037
