Planning for emergencies.
I seem to be losing my place as an autism blogger. Life is busy. There is so much to do. More than I can do, definitely. I'm so tired that I can't think, but then there is still more to do, and it's mostly reflex and reaction- living life on autopilot- and ...

Time to meet the neighbors.
We've been here for four months. I've been fortunate enough to have only officially met one neighbor- who turned out to be cool, one neighborhood woman who seems to be...knowledgeable about what goes on here, and a young neighborhood couple who are definite...

Unbelievable.
This week has been unbelievable. I'm not even sure which one to talk about so I'm just going to throw it all out there and gather my thoughts another day. Maybe eventually, I'll be able to put together a coherent post that stays on topic. (pfft. I know.) An...

No more monkeys jumping on the bed... and other rule changes.
I knew who I was this morning, but I've changed a few times since then. -Alice I've been having a rough time with my boys. Very rough. I know they've been through a lot with the divorce, my getting a job, moving a new county, and starting a new school. I kn...

The Virus
My Goofy Child. Lord love him. He's had a pretty rough day, but he's highly entertaining. He woke me up last night to let me know that he was sick. His throat hurts like when he had strep. I, being the loving and attentive mother that I am, told him he was ...

The reason I write... or, don't write.
As you have probably recognized from my lack of posting, I'm struggling with my blog. One of the many reasons for my writing is to raise awareness and I am sick of raising awareness. Since moving, I've had problems with raising awareness. That problem is mo...

March is ending, and April is beginning. You know what that means. Autism awareness month means lots of posts on all things autism awareness related. There are many examples of why we need this month, but I don't want to talk about Steve Harvey or Kathleen ...

Playdate
I cried today. I did not know how emotional a person could get over a phone call from a stranger, but the things she said to me... Goofy has a friend. Like, a real friend. Someone he really cares about. It started the day we sat down to fill out valentine c...

Changes..
         Ok, so here lately I have been crabby, resentful, and just MEAN. To be honest, I don't know why but it just happens and I don't mean for it to happen but sometimes I just get irritated and I try to be nice but sometimes it don't work. And I just do...

Snow Day
It's Saturday night. Walter and Goofy went to their dad's house for the weekend. I'm home with Alex, and we are blessedly snowed in. This pretty much sums up the mood tonight...   Did I mention that Goofy caught a cat? He did. Well, I did the second time be...

Phone Calls
I was going to call the governor today, but I got distracted. It seems absurd that that feels so casual. I've been asking about getting a school website for a few months now, but I didn't really follow up on it because I've been busy with IEP meetings that ...

Guest Post: A Dog for the Cat
I would like to ask a favor. I don't do many guest posts but this one is important to me. Andrea is a pretty good friend of mine. Even though she is states away, she has been a very big part of my support network. When I needed her, she was there and now sh...
