Honestly, I don't think I'm in a bad mood. I mean, I think I feel fine and am in a pretty decent mood. But maybe I'm actually grumpy because all I want to do is b*tch. I think my daughter's classroom has too many teachers. Nobody is chec... Read more
Autism questions
Sunday, October 21, 2012      6 comments

So it happened today. My little girl asked me point blank about autism. What is it. What does it mean. How is it affecting her. Why does she have it. Etc, etc. I tried to explain that nobody really knows what it is or what causes it but i... Read more

The weather today was absolutely perfect! And that dusty haze that covered the area yesterday was gone this morning so the sky was as clear blue as it could be. So after lunch my girl and I went for a walk. We went up to the local store where... Read more

Not much to report today. I walked my mile this morning after my girl got on her bus. I actually did my workout this morning! I haven't been for whatever/no reason but today I made myself do it before I moved on to cleaning up. ... Read more

For a long time now my downstairs neighbors have been complaining to the complex manager that my bathroom leaks into her bathroom when my kids bathe. So the new manager (here less than a month after the other person left by mutual consent) came... Read more

The other day I spoke with the lady who owns a local store and displays my crafts for sale. She told me she's having a Halloween event so I started thinking that would be a wonderful time to have some theme items in the store! A Dollar Tre... Read more

I've been sparking too late in the evening and not going to bed on time. I'm trying to cut this short because I can't sleep any later in the morning! ... Read more
Productively non-productive day
Monday, October 15, 2012      1 comments

So what is a productively non-productive day? Basically I spent the day tying up a few loose ends and getting ready for my next project. I talked to some people who were completely incapable of helping with my problem at this time. I updated ... Read more

Last week I decided that I would only record my weight and use my tape measure on Sundays. Oh, I still get on the scale way too often (it's a problem) but I'll only record what it says on Sunday because there's way too much fluctuation through ... Read more
Cupcake and ice cream and headaches, oh my!
Saturday, October 13, 2012      3 comments

Today was my mother's birthday. Naturally we went out for lunch (where I did very well!) and then back to their house for cupcakes and ice cream. I did have a cupcake with 1 scoop of ice cream. I think that's ok. So it threw my calorie count... Read more

Well, here we are again. Once again I'm up later than I really ought to be. I did not get to really work out today. I didn't get my morning walk because it was raining. Then I was so drowsy that I lay back down but my mom wanted to go out th... Read more

Sweet: didn't feel sick, walked a mile, did 30 minutes of exercise, ate healthfully for breakfast, lunch, and snacks (dinner is still to be determined), cuddled with my cat, hugged my daughter, my teenage son came off his pedestal to say hi to m... Read more

Hi, I'm Sherry. I have 2 kids. My older is a 16 year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome. He's a high school senior this year. Assuming he does something as beneath him as bother to turn in his English assignments, he'll graduate at 17. It's just... Read more
