Well, it has been two months since I have written in my blog. However, I would not refer to it as a respite. With Roger’s current therapy schedule and my current sitter/work schedule, we have little spurts of free time: Tuesdays after 10:30 til Roger’s possible naptime, Monday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons after 3:15. Of course, our weekends remain pretty open with the exception of errands.
It seems that after 3 plus years here in Chico, we may be starting to find our niche. Roger has his “girlfriend” and his best friend. That is a good start! Roger is a high commodity here in town. It seems wherever we go, people tend to remember Roger from our days at the library. I will attribute this to his very big personality and non-stop running/dancing/touching/escaping.
What else can I say about the past two months? Well, Roger turned two. Both sets of grandparents were at his birthday party! Our ASD support group is growing. My parents help Rob and I get time alone and help me on a daily basis — either with helping with Roger or just listening to me.
With all these good things happening, it is hard to imagine that I can still be a bit blue. However, I am and I think that may have been one of the factors of my writing halt. I felt entry after entry was just depressing. Secondly, time was and still is an issue.
We will see how often I keep this up. Not a very exciting post, but a post nonetheless. Cheers to me!
