Autism I'm the one ready for a meltdown! Argh! Chase had two bad days this week at school. One day in the lunch room he decided to throw food at another boy and lost his recess and then yesterday he got mad at a boy for laughing at his hair sticking up (hardly at all but anyway...) and tried to poke him with a pencil and he once again lost recess. I'm glad I am taking an anti-depressant or else I would be a total gelatinous mess about this week. On a better note he has moved up a reading level in his Reach for Reading program (YEAH!!!). He has lost his computer priviliages for the rest of the week. I hope he realizes what he has done. He seems to, but I don't know for sure.
Dreams we sometimes have never make it to the point of reality....

Oh, I wish I didn't have to bitch so much about trying to put a simple graphic on here!! Oh, well, I should go outside and enjoy all the groovy weather we are having. It's no coat weather, you just can't freaking beat that after a winter of all that cold crap!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!
The Ultimate Personality Test Hey, Susan, you're an Observer!
You like television. At parties, you lounge around on couches and watch other people flirt and act stupid. But at the same time, you're happy enough to go along with the group. You don't like drawing attention to yourself — red platform shoes or flamboyant, sequined outfits are out of the question. A perfect evening for you means a cozy chat with a good friend and a pint of Haagen-Dazs.
Like all mellow folks, you're not too into serious soul mining. You'd rather just relax than freak out about yourself. But at the same time, you recognize that understanding your inner nature can help you further develop your sense of intuition, discover parts of yourself that remain below the surface, and learn how to better communicate with others. And that's cool, right?
At work, you're a team player, but chances are you aren't clamoring for that big promotion. Where to go for lunch is enough of a decision for you. You work best under a routine, and you avoid challenges that require too much improvisation.
Intercot Boards My friend Jennie introduced me to this site and it's pretty cool. You can get some great information about planning a trip to Disney World. What's open, what's not, where to stay. Prices, timeframes all that great information that if you are a tad bit anal retentive when planning a trip you will fully appreciate. There are discussion boards too so you can "meet" other folks either on thier way to Disney or have been there a number of times. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
I also have a rather sick email to post here too, lol. I know that I was upset about my cat the other day (still am) but I appreciate a laugh and this really appealed to my rather off center type of sense of humor.

Well, I found out where the heck all my daily read links went, and now I have to put them in a different place. Picky picky!!! It's going to look really crappy as I blow at page design, lol.
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus I just found out the cat I had hoped to take to the vet, and just have it wormed and vaccinated can't be a house cat because it has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. I am really disappointed about this. I actually sat in my van and cried about it. Poor little thing. It looks soooooo healthy, weighs 12 lbs and kicks the crap out of the other strays that hang around our barn too.

Where the hell is my daily read list????? I had them all to the left, and now they are gone! Shit, They are a real pain in the ass to do too. Argh!!!!
Life in an American Nursing Home--Part 1 Having worked in a nursing home as a nurse and during clinicals while in school, I read this article and it so accurately describes from a resident's view point how it is to live and recieve care in a nursing home. The lack of privacy, the lonliness of no visitors or a demented or non-communicative room mate. Etc... I am going to make an effort to visit the nursing home that I used to work in, there are plenty of folks in there that get no visitors or have family living near by.
