Must Read

Monday, April 30th, 2007

I don’t get to read many blogs at this stage in my life although I’m hoping that will change soon. But here is one you must read by my pal, Tiff.

How do I read so much?

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Someone commented on my April Reads post and asked how I could read so much. Well, the reasons are threefold (any one who watched Friends should find that amusing)…
1. I have no life. Well, I do, but right now I don’t have a car so I spend less time doing superfluous things in le car. I am much more organized in my errand running since I have to walk there.
2. I always have a book with me. Seriously it is a disease. I cannot not read. I will read cereal boxes if I don’t have a book with me so it is just easier to always have a book with me.
3. I suffer from insomnia. I’m a night owl anyway so once my kids are in bed I frolic in the land of book mania. I can get more read in 2 hours after dark than the same 2 hours when the kids are running around.
And that my friends is the secret to my madness…er…success.

Tuesday’s Happies

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

1. Checking my email at the library.
2. Listening to my ipod while checking my email at the library.
3. Looking out the window and seeing the beautiful spring sunshine and knowing that I’ll be walking home in it in about an hour.
4. Not getting a phone call from my son’s school…yet.
5. Stacks of books waiting for me at home.
6. Too many dishes in the sink (no, I don’t like dishes, but the dishes attest to the fact that despite my limited income my children are well fed).
7. Hope…sometimes it is blinding like the spring sunshine. Sometimes it is a gentle warmth that comes with kind words. Sometimes it washes over you like waves in the ocean and sometimes it just envelopes you slowly. Sometimes it is like water in a dry land, but it is there if you look for it.

a day in the life

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

There are times when I think I need to blog/write more about a day in the life of a family with a child that has Asperger’s. But…often I am so caught up in the emotion and the turmoil that I just need to escape it for a bit. Thus I blog about inconsequential things or books.
Oprah had a special about autism on a few weeks ago. One of the parents made a statement that I’d like to put out here as an example of a day in the life – A bad is a bad day and a good day is a bad day waiting to happen.
That sounds so…pessimistic. But I understand. I am at the point where I’m afraid to be hopeful anymore. Because while hope in God is good. Hope in this ever changing beast – this disorder -is not possible. It is hard to find hope in every day life. It can be done, but when you are emotionally and physically drained some times it seems beyond your ken.
I’ll blog more about the good side of Asperger’s, but I needed to say this today.
