It’s been a long day. Once again I was overly ambitious in the things I thought I’d get done. And only did a fraction of the things I thought I’d do. But…we got up our tree today. The purple lights I’ve been waiting all year to put on the tree look more like a shade… Read More Day 29. Second to Last Day.
Recently I received a friend request on Facebook from someone whom I haven’t spoken with in a very long time. I wasn’t sure whether or not to accept the request. For one thing, this person was on my mental list of friend requests I would never accept for any reason. I’m pretty sure that when… Read More Day 28: Are You My Friend?
So because it’s Thanksgiving I figure I should write about things I am grateful for. Of course, I am grateful for a lot of things. Always number one on my list is my children. They have changed me and my life in more ways than I can count. My parents. When I knew I was… Read More Day 27: My Post on Gratefulness

I was trying really hard to get some homework done today. But then something happened. Henry came up to me and wanted to sit by me. He sat on my lap as we looked at random pictures on the computer. When he connects like this, there is nothing else in the world that matters. Maybe… Read More Day 23: 45 Minutes of Connection
Day 22 of the Nablopomo challenge. I’m still hanging in there! I have a whole slew of things I would like to blog about today but will not. I don’t have time and some of the things I can’t go into much detail about. Like, the fact that I ran into the little brother of… Read More Day 22: Still Hanging In There!
I was in the drive through line at the coffee shop today and the guy ahead of me was being rather irritating. For one thing, it took him forever to order his drink. Clearly he was not ready to order, which is what you should be whenever you go through a drive through line. Then… Read More Day 21: Some Random Guy Bought My Latte
One of the things that fascinates me the most about my ASD kiddo is his fascination with technology. He doesn’t talk a lot, and it can be very frustrating to not know what he is saying. But when he gets behind a camera, we start to have a glimpse of the world. He stages his… Read More Day 20: Through The Eyes of My Child
