My favorite time of the year! I am a horror movie FANATIC ;) I love that I get a good two weeks of amazing movies on cable. My son is named after the guy that directed Nightmare on Elm Street. And my "daughter" (my little ol lady cat) is named after a Stephen King novel! AND, awesome p.s. the dude is gonna be Batman this year :)
On a serious not though, please, as a momma of a child with Autism I beg and plead with you to read this and take it into consideration. Also, teach your own babies to have the acceptance of others who may not speak or may act a little differently in certain situations:
Short and simple title says it all :)
I am surrounded by talented, caring, and loving people. Words can't express how thankful I am to have such support! I may be a little "hollow" in the husband/boyfriend area but, I have plenty to lift me and keep me busy. Having participated in an amazing little event last night, I came to the realization of just how wonderful ladies can be to one another. Let's be honest, woman can be catty at times but, our local little group are so thoughtful and helpful. And, I got my nails done up for Halloween:
What a fun 2 days! Great participating vendors and a few AMAZING customers!!
I love, love, love meeting new, exciting, talented folks at local shows :)
My next event:
I hope to see you there!!
The "real job" has been inescapable. NOT complaining, great bosses, easy job, and VERY flexible hours! I am struggling this week with the HUGE, MASSIVE desire to bury myself in my sewing room and just, well, GET CREATIVE. I have been doing that almost every night for months after the kiddo hits the hay, and well, I wanna know what it's like to sew in the daylight, HA! For now, I will NOT take for granted and I WILL count my blessings that I have the job that gets the bills paid and keeps the roof over my head :)
On a fun and exciting note my next event is HERE:
A GREAT friend just sent me this, I love those Ryan sayings!! Thanks Amanda :)
Busy, busy, busy getting ready for my kiddo's birthday party! These are the goody bags, all 12 of them!! I think I may be as excited as he is ;)
On another amazing note my dude made the local paper, again! I guess he is THAT cute!!
I try not to talk too much about my lil guy BUT, he really is my world!
Being a single mother is the hardest job in the world...Being a single mother to an autistic child is even harder....I try MEGA hard to not play the sympathy card but, well, at this little moment have a heart and hear me out....I am doing anything and everything I know to do for him=LOTS of LOVE! Many, many therapy sessions and special preschool. I have so much hope, I know he can do it! I struggle and little things make me even more sensitive to it....I overheard a woman at a chain store (not naming which store) yelling at her kid to "shut-up". Insert fury and wanting to smack her into reality. I just kindly walked away and hugged my little guy extra hard the rest of the day and told him that he WILL talk and WILL understand me someday...
I can't even fathom that he will be 4. YES, 4, how did that happen? In the blink of an eye, that's how...
Thanks for reading and listening to my rant!
Much LOVE and HUGS and THANKS for the support!!
