Random events & thoughts including #Kitties


(waves) Hi here I am!! The break from social media was well needed. Every time I peeked, oh boy. I still want to share our stories and I will probably still voice my opinions, because well I am opinionated 🙂 but not sure will be “getting into it” with people or such stuff. It is […]

New Obsession- Bags or Organizing or both!

New Obsession- Bags or Organizing or both!


So I have been staying on the outskirts of social media lately. There was just so much negativity and fighting. Every time I peek around the corner to see if it is safe I see something that makes me run & hide again!! Deep Breaths. Going to my happy place. So I wrote recently here […]

Reset


First- trigger warning for negativity and for anyone recently in a certain facebook group.   When my son was younger he had a much harder time controlling his emotions.  He was very, very sensitive. He would act out in Math class.  No one could figure out what was wrong.  I would dig in and figure […]

Motivation

Motivation


Motivation is a really difficult thing.  I am guessing it is even more difficult as an Aspie.  My son used to seem more motivated to do things but now he seems less motivated.  Is that because the world was not always kind to him?  Is it teenagitis?   I know what motivation I had as a […]

#Autism – please listen to adult autistics!


I had a few stories rattling around in my brain working on a potential blog post when I stopped in at pinterest. I love pinterest. If you haven’t checked it out yet you really should.  If you click on the P looking thing all the way up on right hand corner of blog you can […]

Accepting Self & Advocating for Self


Advocating for your own needs is so very important yet also so very hard.  I personally know I want so much to be accepted so then I sacrifice my own needs for the sake of others.  No.  Not anymore. I have even struggled with that in my own house.  My husband changed careers a few […]

Hoarding and calming

Hoarding and calming


We moved in 2004? Seems so long ago when I actually think about it. There was nothing really wrong with the other house- oh wait it was old (had character but money pit) and wasn’t in the best of neighborhoods. We didn’t know how long we would stay in this house but we wanted to […]

Okay relatives weren’t that bad….


It’s over & it wasn’t too bad!! Yesterday my husband convinced Sheldon to out to breakfast with us.  There is only one place my son likes to go for breakfast so that is where we went.  Well he doesn’t even eat breakfast but they will serve him chicken strips and french fries at 9 am […]

Merry Christmas?


I don’t want to be all bah humbug because really it has been a great Christmas.  Was a really stressful year and I got into the Christmas spirit early.  We put up two trees and we really wanted to celebrate the wonderful holiday and enjoy the family time. The festivities started on Sunday with a […]

Trying New Foods

Trying New Foods


My son has extreme food issues. The textures, smells, visual, all of it causes him issues. He has a very short list of what he will eat and he always wants everything prepared a certain way. We went to France a few years ago and he still knows how to say chicken and French fries […]
