There’s Value in Fat

  Fat. How many of us have it on our minds today? How many of us are feeling ashamed by it? Well I’m here to tell you (and myself) that there’s value in fat. And we, every single inch of us, are valuable. I’m sitting here in the light of my SAD light, trying to […]

Strange Happenings

There have been stttrrrrannnggeee happenings in my house as of late.  What started of with me getting a bout of OCD when it came to cleanliness (which has now found some balance) has turned into a lot more.  Of course I’ve been exercising and eating well despite the fact that losing one pound takes a […]

Gifts of Imperfection – Journal One

I’m reading a new book called The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown.  After reading the introduction and the first chapter, I’m feeling better.  I’m feeling like I need to blog the findings I’ve had within myself.  If only to create discussion or to help someone else feel like they’re not alone.  I’ve never kept […]

Hyperlexia?

There a messageboard that I go to that’s all about autism.  We talk about everything there.  Some woman mentioned her son’s fascination with letters and spelling so I told her my son was like that also.

Medic Alert

We got Silas’ Medic Alert bracelet yesterday. What an odd thing to see on my own little darling’s hand but I think it’s necessary. I wasn’t going to get one just yet but the parents on the allergy board made a very good point. I thought I was with Silas all the time so he […]

Bring Me Baileys!!

I’m having coffee today, it’s a coffee day. It’s actually a coffee and Baileys day but since I’m without Baileys, I guess I’m just drinking coffee. Silas is downstairs having a massive temper tantrum because he wants a bite of wrap. I have many bites I’ve pre-torn for him that are sitting right beside me. […]
