My Place for Family, Friends, Autism, Beauty, Bitchin', and more...
Monday, July 20, 2009
Ok, so I guess I have a blog now. I still have been fighting the Facebook thing, although I have to admit that I saw all the people in my family alone that are on there when my mom signed up and I was quite shocked, and softened just a little toward the possibility of signing up. But only a little!
Well, since the first people I'm going to send invites to are friends and family, I guess the rest of this post will just be updates and pics. Giovanni is doing fantastic! He is in summer school right now which he loves, and when he officially goes back in September, he will be in the 1st grade. His progress is amazing! He has been reading on a first grade level for a while now. He loves to read almost as much as I do, and it is really good because reading definitely helps him to understand things better. Here are some pics of him from his first 2 week vacation of the summer - we took him to mini golf, and to the aquarium, bowling, the zoo... all kinds of fun stuff.
I've been up to the same old same old... looking for a job again - ugh. But I'm enjoying having some time to relax, and enjoy the summer with G! Talk to you all soon!
Well, you already know most of my interests, (if you've read my profile), so I guess I'll just say I'm 29, though on a good day I feel about 18, lol. I have the most AMAZING soon to be 6 year old son in the world. He has autism, and while I'm teaching him about life, he is teaching me more than I ever thought I didn't know, lol. He progresses daily in leaps and bounds, and gives me a lot of patience, hope, and more joy than I've ever felt in my life or even knew was possible. I decided to start a blog because I'd like to be able to share pics, updates, and thoughts with friends and family, other parents of autistic children, other people who are into beauty, and saving money, and crafts, and celebrity gossip, and fashion faux pas... I have lots of thoughts, and I'm a total smartass, so hopefully, you will laugh a lot while you are here!!
