I have been away a while. Years. It seems having two kids, a career, a husband, and a graduate degree in progress are a little much for me to blog. Facebook is easier and quicker. But, I still think this is a cathartic experience to jot down my thoughts so I guess I will see if I can carve yet a few more minutes from the skinny apple core of time remaining in a typical day.
Typical. Yeah, speaking of. When I last left you, my 7 year-old was 6….and not diagnosed with anything most people comprehend. Now, we have a shiny new diagnosis on the autism spectrum and a request in to the local psychologist group. He is fine. Not awesome but ok. We have daily challenges that most people would consider “off” days but hubs and I know what it is. It is the dark, question mark side of him that brings tears too easily, frustration too deeply, and worry that helps me toss and turn just a few more times at night.
Matt is Drew’s polar opposite. Fun, easy going, happy, a free spirit. The sibling rivalry has more to do with the jealousy his older brother feels at how easily concepts come to him and how he lights up a tense moment than anything else.
The rest of life is rolling on. We are blessed, we keep putting one foot in front of the other and try to slow down enough to enjoy the sun and all the good things. This blog is a good thing and I will try to visit again, soon.
