autism, sleep, surveys

surveys and too tired to say much else

Ahhh, another work break. I had had one briefly before then worked another week. Now I’ve been off since Thurs. morning and am only working Tues/Thurs. morning this week.

The kids are doing okay – Colleen had a book report due this weekend and she DID do it though I don’t think she completely finished it, OR the book. She was supposed to review math equations with me but unfortunately I feel asleep on the couch with Ryan downstairs so kinda missed my chance. She was very busy this weekend and tired out with a water safety course she’s taking that will go into the summer. I think it’s important for her to have some rewarding summer activities but I wish they wouldn’t start the major portion of the training during the SCHOOL year- GRUMP!!

Ryan is making a lot of gains – he writes his name! – but I am so tired of cleaning up where he can’t get to the bathroom. He IS pee trained Thank Goodness! It’s just I’m so tired of finding poop on the wall or on the floor. I got up this morning half asleep and went to the couch to get my glasses and stepped in it YUCK! We keep telling him where the poop goes but he is not listening. I know it will happen – the pee training happened- but this is just getting gross.

Chris is staying up all night more often for some reason – I think it’s spring allergies. He did the same thing last spring. he’s totally switched over to Abilify now from Geodon and seems okay with it. He’s just very congested. He is still taking Loratadine (generic Claritin) and sometimes I give him Sudafed in the morning.

It is hard for us to bear all these things lately; Chris dumped ANOTHER bottle of dish soap down the shower drain. We buy 2-3 bottles a week because he finds them all the time where we hide them. He dumped all my shampoo last night when he stayed up all night. We hope he sleeps tonight -I am very tired and would probably be asleep on the desk right now if it weren’t for my falling asleep downstairs for about 20 minutes a while ago.

On to some surveys, then a web site I am making for someone that I want to finish by tomorrow 🙂

survey about best and worsts, etc.

1. What is your best dream ? files/dream.html
2. What is your worst nightmare ? There are 3-4 I remember vividly from my childhood when I was about 4 (after my mom got divorced) where it involved a) my mom and I being on an escalator and I fell off over the side and broke my back b) my grandma falling out of the car and getting run over by a car and dying and c) there was a machine at the mall that you went into and it did horrible things to you.
3. Who makes you laugh the hardest ? Roger my hubby.
4. What is on your travel coffee mug ? Don’t have a travel mug.
5. What is one skill you wished you had learned as a child ? Well, I learned guitar skillfully as a child but I wish I wouldn’t have quit lessons at 18 – I really enjoyed classical guitar and probably could have gotten even better in college.
6. What is one skill you learned as a child that you appreciate now ? Playing guitar (though there are more than that that I appreciate!)
7. What does your dream house look like ? Actually I’m kind of in my dream house, but to have it on a mountaintop with about 30 acres of land would be nice!
8. What’s your dream car ? Right now we want a brand new Nissan Altima AND a brand new Honda Ridgeline.
9. What is the greatest luxury you can imagine ? A large jacuzzi and sinking down in it with bubble bath and candles for about an hour.
10. What is the greatest luxury you have in your every day life ? The 3 hours where Ryan goes to preschool. But I also fully appreciate when they come home and love being with them more after the break.

13. What’s your dream accessory ? Us being able to buy a campground in North Carolina to have a second income from and be able to visit 2-3-4 times a year for vacation. It would be in the mountains with a lake close by.
14. What’s your dream piece of clothing ? To be back in my size 7s someday, an all NEW set and not the ones from 1986-1990.
15. What are your dream shoes ? Actually my mom bought me new tennies yesterday from Walmart and surprisingly they feel like pillows and dream shoes!
16. Dream makeup and hair makeover or shopping spree ? Both sound great but I think I’d do the makeover to get some new ideas on how to present myself and motivation not to look like a slob all the time!
17. Massage or facial ? Massage

19. Play or movie ? Movie
20. Sleeping in or early bird ? Sleeping in is PREFERRED but seldom involved in. I’m usually up by 6 by necessity.

still alive…


I’m either working, researching working, or updating my computer for work. Wow! I’m taking some breaks this week (spring break!) and getting a haircut and trying to clean the house, but still have to review instructions on two new jobs I’m starting after that! For part time work I’m sure spending a lot of time…. but it’s a learning curve.

DH has a bunch of work now! We’re going to get a shed, a new computer (since I’m on this one all the time for work now!) and some new locks for our doors (to keep Chris from running across the street in this nicer weather!).

Hope everyone’s well, haven’t even read in ages.  (2020, I’m sure this referred to a mom’s group I was on since 1996, that I still keep up with now on Facebook!)

Thanks Heather –

Fun to do something mindless for a change 😉

Though quite honestly I don’t know if I’d really pick the O.C. or Degrassi TNG – I like both equally but I picked Degrassi…..


You Are 26 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view – and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what’s to come… love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You’ve had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You’ve been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
