Another low energy day
Wednesday, November 07, 2012      5 comments

I'm starting to notice a significant downward trend in my energy levels. I haven't found a pattern yet, though. But this week I am really struggling to accomplish anything! I'd almost give myself today because yesterday I walked 2 miles to my... Read more

My 16 year old son was just telling me that he was watching election coverage streaming from ABC and someone used the term "interwebs". He proceeded to say, "He was an old, white guy, too. Probably not much younger than you!" ... He has b... Read more
My day off
Monday, November 05, 2012      2 comments

I woke up this morning with good intentions. No, strike that. With GREAT intentions! And I did accomplish the major things that needed doing. I got a check in the mail from my ex for a surprising amount. It was enough to cover my rent, than... Read more

I've always heard it said that "God never gives us more than we can handle." Right now I am absolutely struggling to keep the faith! I am so frustrated. It seems like every time I turn around something else happens. I can't even get one prob... Read more

I had a really long entry typed out here talking all about my day and I was just typing the title "Saturday fought me and I won" when my browser crashed. Everything I just spent 20 minutes typing is gone! So I'll just say don't forget to set y... Read more
So sleepy!
Friday, November 02, 2012      2 comments

Oh my goodness! I have been so darn sleepy all evening! I'm not sure why. Maybe just because it's Friday and I've been up by 6 every day. Maybe because I took the kids on a walk earlier. 1 mile each way! With almost whining! It was awesom... Read more

Saw all of her flaws and was blind to her beauty. Was convinced that everything was always going to go wrong and it would always be her fault. Let others blame her for their mistakes. Blamed herself for everything bad. Thought she could ... Read more
What a day!
Wednesday, October 31, 2012      4 comments

So much happened today! First thing this morning I read an article about letting the sun naturally wake you in the morning. It humored me greatly. Really, I laughed. For an hour. Most of it before sunrise while contemplating explaining to m... Read more
Do all kids with autism have funny sounding laughs?
Tuesday, October 30, 2012      5 comments

No, seriously! I'm really curious. My 16 year old son has Asperger's Syndrome and he has the goofiest, fakest sounding laugh I'd ever heard. That is, until my daughter with PDD-NOS/autism started laughing. It's the most wonderfully awful noi... Read more
Pushing through self-defeating inner dialogue
Monday, October 29, 2012      4 comments

Well, I did it! My daughter's bus ran really late this morning so there I was standing out on the coldest day of the year so far with this crazy wind eating right through my coat and sweater listening to her complain about being late to school.... Read more
Finding motivation
Sunday, October 28, 2012      4 comments

Lately I've seen a lot of people blogging that they just aren't motivated right now. They've lost their motivation and can't seem to find it again. Well, I'm not one of them! Several months ago I found something that motivates me. It took se... Read more

So today we finally had the horse show we've been preparing for! It was awesome! The turnout today was just unbelievable! Soooo many more supporters than last year! My girl rode in the first independent class. She was the 5th rider in t... Read more
Applying lessons learned from parenting a child with autism
Friday, October 26, 2012      2 comments

Parenting a disabled child taught me that all milestones deserve celebration, no matter how small they are or how late in coming. I did not realize how well I had learned that lesson until I caught myself cheering myself on for the smallest thi... Read more
Thursday night

So here it is almost 1030 pm again and I'm still up. I have GOT to organize my day so I can be in bed by 10 instead of 11! I worked on another technique for a leather bracelet today. It looks cute but I don't have the right kind of closur... Read more
What is "normal" anyway?
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      2 comments

This month my "normal" is making jewelry (obsessed with bracelets right now!), Special Olympics practices, sweaters in the morning and shorts in the afternoon, seemingly endless jaunts in the pediatric therapy waiting room, not knowing if I'll b... Read more
