I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

breaking back in –   Leave a comment

So out of this habit it’s ridiculous.  So guess I’ll just start with a small post.  I never finished the Christmas newsletter picture section – but will just start over with that next Christmas season! I’m still working many many hours for our sweet Chris, and we have discovered new parks to walk in, which […]

things seem to have not changed much in 6 years…   Leave a comment

In 2010 we tried to get Chris into a medical placement to help adjust his meds, to no avail.  I posted about it http://www.criscollrj.com/2010/05/23/the-brick-wall/ .  After that in 2011 we did manage to get a waiver and group home placement (in 2012), and I’m so grateful.  I also can work for Chris there which is […]

About hearing aids…   Leave a comment

I just recently got a second hearing aid, after having one left hearing aid since 2006 and wearing it haphazardly.  My hearing loss is less severe – mostly in my left ear, but some in my right.  Ryan’s is second least severe, with his having more loss in each ear than I.  He has refused […]

Transfers and Changes!   1 comment

  After a very busy, enjoyable summer, we are headed into a fall of changes yet excitement! First, Chris had a very nice summer camp, along with Ryan, part of the time, where the boys got to swim, go to the mall, the movies, play at the park, and just generally get a lot of […]

18 years ago —   Leave a comment

With Colleen’s birthday coming up on Tuesday I felt like posting some publishable parts of my old diary, from 5-12-94. Hard to believe it’s been 18 years. Work told me I’m definitely getting my three-week vacation pay, three-week sick leave, and they want me to do tapes at home. I also may be able to […]

More than we can bear? God bears it with us.   Leave a comment

Woke up early this morning and was reading an older journal – and found these older posts from November 1994 and January 1995.    November 19, 1994 Tomorrow is Christopher’s birthday.  4 years old!  He’s got a double ear infection but is now getting better.  He’s been sleeping in the daytime and stays up until […]

Just entering the world of autism phone apps–   Leave a comment

Autism Apps (page 3) – Android A while ago our speech therapist shared with us that autism applications could be found on the Apple Ipad, Ipod Touch, and Iphone. Actually drafted this much of the post a while ago, planning to come back and add a lot of links.  But I haven’t had time to […]

Overnights —   Leave a comment

Actually took this picture at dusk in December, but it was a neat example of darkness outside and how I captured it with my new camera at the time.   But overnight, such a peaceful time.  You want everything dark, and quiet, and to sleep solidly and restfully.  And you want that comfort and peace […]

About running –   Leave a comment

As the spring arrives, I have been thinking about running in various ways. I have used it as a thing to worry about – as spring comes every year, the boys would get more boisterous about escaping the house and running off (or in Chris’s case, usually walking very fast).  As far as I’ve heard, […]

Syllabi and phones —   Leave a comment

(http://www.pcworld.com/article/173033/evolution_of_the_cell_phone.html First I must confess I did have to look up if the plural of syllabus was syllabi – and certainly it is. I wonder where I came about that certain bit of information in my head – I’m certainly not sure – but slightly pleased to know that was right. LOL. Since 1999 I […]
