Getting ready for the exams and the end of the school year! Yays! We have made some great strides and i'm hoping that will continue. A main difference between now and before things got into a tail spin is that i find myself unapologetically emailing and contacting people on W's behalf. He mentioned some time … Continue reading Exam prep …
I have always believed that things are very often what you make them. Your perception is often just as important if not more so than the actual situation. I happen to work with children and they are always more than happy and able to remind me of that little tidbit of wisdom! Just as many … Continue reading Problem …. ?
No-one, today, dampens my light, my potential, it’s me. We do it to ourselves. When we’re ready to take responsibility for our own lives, we stop blaming others for screwing up our lives. I couldn't agree more! If you read nothing else of this piece I hope you go away with at least that on … Continue reading (Re-blog) Retiring My Emotional Armor — A Fish Named Karen
Every time there is something to be done, some appointment, some assessment, some chore .... a class, a meet, anything .... in this case a dental appointment for a simple cleaning.

I haven't written about my oldest in a while so i thought i'd just update a bit. He's doing rather well in life in general, schooling is another story.

For days ... Eventually they get itchy, like they are now and what follows is the constant … Continue reading Quick note to self

Last week was a particularly hard one. You see, something like autism isn't a cut and dry diagnosis. The spectrum is vast and … Continue reading It’s important to celebrate the good things.
*chuckle* I'm not joking, it's true, she said that straight up right in my kitchen! 😛 I've been having one heck of a time physically lately and it's taken up enough of this blog, for now. I know it's important to be realistic and for me to document what's going on or i honestly lose … Continue reading My MIL says i have a nice butt!
We're into April now and it seems that it's going to be a month of meets and greets and being around people .... If you've been around any amount of time you know that i really prefer NOT to do 'people'. It's the 'I' part of the INTJ! *chuckle* When i was a kid i … Continue reading A month of people-ing?? And W is kicking life’s @ss! *grin*
