Saga of the Desk

Saga of the Desk


It shouldn’t be this difficult but well, everything is… So first of all we remodeled our spare bedroom around a year ago to give him his own space. This space included moving his PS3 and big screen TV in there. So then there was a big to do this summer with his computer. We ended […]

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 […]

Hospital fun


Coming to you live from my hospital bed. I had no intention of doing this but, well life sometimes has mind of its own. The floor is really noisy today and not able to sleep. It may take a while but i should remain coherent. I am rather confused about my days so when I […]

How a Teenager Spreads Autism Acceptance


My son has suffered from anxiety, depression and bullying in the past. It was so sad that other kids did not accept him. Lately he seems to be less depressed but he honestly doesn’t talk to me as much as before due to teenagitis. Anyways he spends a lot of time playing video games online. […]

How an Aspie takes a Geometry Test


There are lots of benefits to online schooling.  One of them is that it can be done any time day or night.  This is great when your child has sleep issues.   This is not so great when the learning coach has a full time job. I had been harassing my son for over a week […]

“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 […]

Sleep is Boring

Sleep is Boring


It is never boring in my house.  Well I guess that isn’t true because sometimes Sheldon is playing video games or sleeping and for once I don’t need to do anything and the house will be still.  I love those moments, if my husband is home he says “I am bored”.  I want to choke […]

Meltdowns Suck (but they do get better over time!)

Meltdowns Suck (but they do get better over time!)


Meltdowns really suck. I have been told that shutdowns are a form of meltdowns but I would rather deal with a shutdown any day of the week. Although when he shuts down I know that he is on the edge of a meltdown and I view the shutdown as him shutting himself, preventing the meltdown. […]
