Today, November 6 is my husbands birthday. He is not used to necessarily celebrating it because of the way they grew up they didn’t celebrate birthdays, Christmas, etc. He turns 33 years old. Yes, I guess that technically means I am a “cougar” since I have almost 9 years on him. But I am […]

Stuck in limbo status

Finally! I have someone going to bat for me. Thank Goodness because this is getting so frustrating. Plus when you get bills for $1900.00 for a hospital visit that resulted in nothing for you it gets even more frustrating. One of them has already gone into collections but what do you do? They call […]

Conversations Part 1

This was a “conversation” between my son and I this morning.
This is just one example of how autism is in our home.

Me – “oh”
Dusty – “if I go to bed early and eat burritos for dinner…”
Me – “Dusty go eat […]

Another day of parenting

Stress, instability…what’s next?

And I can’t ask Why me?

By |January 22nd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

You know that age old saying, don’t ask why me? Well at least that is what I believed …that was something you just didn’t do. Even if you went through a crap ton of stuff you just didn’t ask why me. I don’t know about you but sometimes I sit back in my head […]
