a little chat about autism

Yes we are still doing Halloween 365,,,I am up to my ears in skulls for a make and take I am doing for Great Lakes Fright Fest. aka...GLFF..

My family has been affected by Autism probably more than has been officially diagnosed. Aspergers actually..Or High Functioning Autism. Some may say that We are lucky and I suppose that we are my Child has always been verbal, however any deviation from ones perception of WHAT AUTISM IS ... well can make diagnoses more difficult. Often resulting in the treatment being delayed till their older. and sometimes less successful.Its a mixed bag I am sure.

April is Autism awareness month. this was our second year of lighting it up blue for autism.Be aware. Autism is all around us. 1 out of every 54 boys. the boy down the street that is hyper may very well have more complex neurological problems and be over or under stimulated.

I dig my kid. He just turned 15 last week. And sure he is odd..a little dark and at 215 and 6 feet intimidating. But he is funny at times and generally a joy to be around. Intelligence through the roof. never a dull moment. never a dull moment. I embrace his individuality while trying o get him to appreciate mainstream as well.

Its never ending...wouldn't change it if I could

One final thing

I just noticed that it is only 303 days till halloween... SO I just have one final blessing to ask of for my next decade....please let inspiration stay with me all year and please I need the mojo in august , sept and All of october not just the last three days.............
NOt to much to ask

New Years Eve 2009

Wow the first decade of the new Millennium has come to an end........................
Personally I haven't loved the 30's and early 40s of my life..........I hope 2010 is going to usher in a new something or other..Hopefully peaceful... tranquil.. I will try to be open to it......
This decade I saw a lot of personal tragedy..The loss of my Sister, and my Mom. Step-Dad was gone in 1997. A whole generation of family gone in such a short time. The sole survivor of the generation is me....Who am I to carry on the family..
The collapse of our belief in our government (Hurricane Katrina, the war, the President)Maybe its just my belief but I think others feel the same...
The collapse of our auto industry, which in Michigan is a pretty damn big deal.
The collapse of my marriage and then before we could even rebuild or move on the collapse of my husbands health................ A grandchild who I never got to meet.....

I hope 2010 ushers in something better globally for many who suffer... I am sure many more than me have it much much worse..
May god give us health in 2010... and love and kindness....and strength of family..

Despite such hardships I want to recognized the blessings I have had in the past 10 years..
Besides having to kids who are pretty healthy...I have added 4 new family members..Jager, martini, edward and bella...My Chihuahua's.Love them all everyday and feel blessed that they love me back....
My health has been fairly good. Thank goodness..
I have been able to go back to school. Love that...I have a job I like and work with people i love...
I have learned to be creative...To make art, art people would pay for if i was selling...I have learned so much more about who I am and that I am OK...
Happy 2010

Been a Bad Blogger

I have done a terrible job of keeping up with this. To busy with other things, haven't spent much time going on line at all. Haven't been keeping up with others blogs or Tim Holtz's 12 days of christmas tags....

Almost done with school for the semester which is awesome. I do not think I am going to make the presidents list this semester I am going to wind up with a A- in one of my classes. I am pretty sure. And thats okay but it sucks too I've gotten used to getting those little pins....I have yet to attend the lunch. Sold back my text books only got 76 dollars for 500 dollars worth of books.

Found out Dalton has downloaded 88 dollars worth of crap to his cell phone which he promptly broke after doing so and they were subscription items...so that would have been 88 a month if I hadn't figured it out.
***Edited to add****
and 270 dollars worth of stuff from the Playstation network...I'm Gonna Kill him!!!!!

***end edit***
Pretty much done christmas shopping for the year. If I don't go out to buy more. Cuz it is really about what I want to give than what they want.

Today was the babies first snow and Bella went outside with no problem at all. Edward was a little slow to go and of course Martini wanted nothing to do with going to cold for her short short hair. Its cold and really windy out today too. WInd gusts up to 60 miles per hour.

Have been loving my Dj gig and been having lots of fun. They have someone new who is supposed to start and give me every other weekend off work. That would be cool
