I have a little boy that I care for during the week who is autistic. Sometimes things get difficult for him, for us here and at school and mostly for his family. 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!
*** I started this in preparation for an interview by a student, I have since completed the interview and added quite a bit more but I thought since the first draft is here I might as well put it out there ... *** I've been asked if I would be willing to give an interview … Continue reading What can we do …..
It's a good thing i have a good sense of humour because my kids certainly test that theory often! My youngest is not as argumentative or ornery as the oldest was BUT when he decides he isn't going to do something, he doesn't! The last couple of weeks have been odd, ever since we changed … Continue reading just shake your head ….
Just a little 'funny' that for some reason just occurred to me, as i'm working-out. I've spent a good amount of time researching and asking about what i should be doing and how. I don't really do 'people' as i've said before so i do my thing at home. As i'm progressing in my health … Continue reading Just occurred to me
I've been feeling pretty good for a while now. Mentally that is, physically it's been a battle but I've already written about that! *chuckle* Mentally I've been in a great space, even better than normal. The youngest seems to really have figured out his footing for now and is even contemplating going on a school … Continue reading Feeling Good

No point or reason for it .... He hasn't done any of it and refuses to go … Continue reading Confusion, irony? Both …
I've been hoping for some fun in life recently, some fun that keeps being just beyond my grasp. Just when I think things will settle and cards will be played and I will finally get to just be 'free' ....... it seems to come and go before my eyes. The hours and days slide by … Continue reading Entirely Too serious
Sometimes all you can do is shake your head. My brother has been basically stalked by this woman for a few weeks. She saw him at the grocery store and decided she wanted him i guess ... anyhow. Eventually and after a few weeks she basically shows up at his house. Pretty much uninvited. Being … Continue reading Am I that ‘old’??? Or are people losing all sense ….
My brother and I talk just about every day. He has me on an app that allows texting even though I don't own a cell phone, it comes to my computer (or whatever device) I happen to be logged into. Today he texts: 'My son wants to come live with you, if I die. He … Continue reading Normal, right?!?
