I thought I was good in Math…

In school I won awards in math.  Somewhere in this house I have an album with all the awards and certificates I won in Math.  I took Honors Calculus, what they call AP Calculus now and received College Credit from my AP score.  I don’t necessarily use algebra or calculus at work but I do […]

Engaged learning is key

First of all- I hope all are well in the path of #Sandy.  I had heard bits and pieces about it at work but I received an entire download of information from Sheldon when I came home.  Between his friends on the East Coast and YouTube he was well versed and was very interested in […]

Interesting 24 hours with #Aspies

Interesting 24 hours with #Aspies

The past 24 hours have really been something.  Not bad, not good, but lots of Aspie moments… Monday Night I came home from work and my son was not in his “other room”.  Odd since he went to bed before I left for work so I figured he would be up playing video games.  I […]


Sometimes I just want to cry.  Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed.  I just feel so exhausted from interactions with people.  Did I do or say the right thing.  Did I affect someone in the wrong way.  Did I snap at someone because I just couldn’t anymore.  I couldn’t remain calm.  I couldn’t handle all […]

Happy Easter?!?!

My son has been watching waaaayyyy too much you tube lately.  I don’t even know what all he is watching but it has become too much.  He hasn’t been wanting to do school work and I became aggravated by that. I was also aggravated by his sleep schedule and that I was waking up at […]

“I am on a Schedule!”

“I am on a Schedule!”

I have other more serious posts rolling around in my head but today I wanted to update everyone on school. I really hope that I do not jinx it! He started online school on January 23rd and overall we have been really happy with that decision. I do not miss getting calls from the school […]

Will work for Brownies

The other night I woke up at 4:30 AM and just sensed that he was still awake. Oh yes he was still awake. When I went in to talk to him he refused to take his pills and was upset in general. Earlier that night he had become upset during a Geometry quiz. He had […]

My Meltdown

We are both still adjusting to Online school I suppose even though it has been a few weeks.  It felt like it was taking a lot of organization and executive functioning skills to figure out what needed to be done when.  I kept having a nagging feeling that I was over complicating things.  I think […]
