The toilet. πŸ˜‚

We have been making some upgrades around the house. Well my husband actually. The rest of us just try to help whenever possible. 😁 The carpet was pulled from the living room. But while we wait for the tile to arrive, my husband decided to move to the bathroom. Our toilet is old. My husband…

Simply home.

This is what our days have been lately. My husband always says how simple my son is. He doesn’t ask for extraordinary things. He’s happy with basics, coloring, hanging out with his doggies, and being with his family. We are very fortunate this quarantine has not been tough on him. I know it has been…

The Shower Drain

The monkey loves water. Showers help him with his anxiety. He can shower ten times a day if we let him. But with the warm weather, he also gets to swim a lot too. We see a big difference when he swims. He is just happier. Today while he was swimming it started to rain….

Report Card Day

My husband has been working on a story book called Harley and Bella, our two doggies. Bella is our golden retriever, she is our oldder doggie and in the book, she is the wise one. Harley is our beautiful young mutt who is always curious and interested in everything going on in our household. πŸΆπŸΎπŸ•…

Homework

The monkey doing homework. Sometimes he does great but most of time it’s a battle. The meltdowns are rough and in the end, my husband and I hate ourselves for getting upset at the monkey. I just don’t think it’s worth it. We also have virtual class for thirty minutes three times a week. It’s…

I cannot die. Ever.

It’s 4 a.m. and I haven’t been able to sleep at all. I haven’t gotten this anxious in a while. I purposely have fought from drowning in the thoughts of my son’s future. When I feel these fears come up, I’ve learned to push them to the back of my mind and forget them. And…

Grateful.

We are staring our 5th week in quarantine. My daughter is trying to take her classes online while my husband tries to teach class in the garage to avoid distractions as much as possible. I’m trying to have conference calls and submit work. And throughout all of this, the monkey needs to take classes and…

Perspective

This morning wasn’t easy. The monkey loves to shower. Sometimes he will shower 7 or 8 times. We typically let him since it is his way to decompress. But this morning he was already on his 4th shower and it was only 10 am. We told him that this time we would not let him….

Autism Awareness

With all of the things happening around the world right now, let’s take a moment to stop and reflect on the things that really matter. My husband has always told me that if we lose our jobs, our homes, our possessions, we’d be okay as long as we have each other. Our family is not…
