Yesterday the car dealership didn’t have a loaner for me after I trekked down there, having to get my husband to get the kids off to school, making him late. Then later in the day the therapist who was supposed to perform Ryan’s Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule never showed up for his appointment, after two hours of waiting. Right,like heck, going to Autism testing doesn’t take mental preparation or anything. I tried to tell both places, for me Thursday appointments suck but no one heard me.
By the time I got to work I had been up since 6am with no nap and I was, stick a fork in me, done. Magically, being at work helped, and my co-worker and regulars really cheered me up by just engaging in fun conversation and well the 1:3o am Ke$ha dance party behind the bar and the ever syrupy sweet Duran Duran didn’t hurt either.
So, today I am wiping the bad taste out of my mouth. It is a new day, a long weekend, and people we are attempting to go away this weekend. You know to the ocean and sleep out of the house away. I am hoping we can do this. We chose to borrow a beach house on the off season in case Ryan couldn’t deal with being away. We have been discussing it for weeks with him. There is a bunk bed there so we can make his “fort” to block out all the sensory stuff. Cross your fingers for us. We have not been away in forever and really have never taken an actual “vacation” as a family.
Next week two of the three dudes in my house are having a birthday, which should be fun. In a few weeks I am going to see Adam Ant with a friend and we are going to go and act like teenagers all night. Soon my first cohort to turn 50 is having a roast which should be a belly laugh good time.
All of this is good. Good keeps me together and whole. I hope you all can get in your lives what keeps you together and whole too.
