January 26, 2009

busy, busy, busy...

it seems my life has been a tad bit busy these days. meetings, appointments, errands, cleaning, organizing paperwork, organizing rooms, phone calls, more appointments, more meetings, more errands...all for porter and autism.

autism takes a front seat. porter's health and happiness. learning more each day.

right now, we need house bill 1588 passed. we need government to hear our voices.

right now, we need to order a plethora of biomeds, probiotics and supplements for my little guy, porter... to heal his gut and promote good health. and it's all out of our pockets...unless the hb 1588 gets passed.

and so....

right now, i am getting back to balance in life. eating more raw foods, walking, breathing deeper, reading, relaxing techniques...balance. so, i may say 'no' to a few things in my life i would normally say 'yes' to. i do this for me. i do this for my family. i do this to create the balance needed so i can concentrate on the 'need tos' right now. and porter is a 'need to'.

and this is the 'season' in my life right now. i welcome it with an open heart...because HE is worth it and so much more!

The BIG winter storm of 2009....

....I'm thinking maybe not!

So, it's actually colder today than yesterday. No chance of snow in the forecast. I'm ok though. I got to go to my Yarn MeetUp and crochet for therapy. And...I am still driving all over the place going to meetings, dropping off and picking up Brig from Jury Duty, Therapies for kids, shopping, etc...I think I got 3 hours sleep last night. I was online with my EDCD Facilitator until the am and then searched some links she gave me (for Autism) and finally closed my eyes around 3am. I got up at 6am and had to take Brig into Jury Duty at 7:45am....got a EDCD meeting tonight, then pick him back up (at my folk's house).

Tomorrow and Friday are all day meetings in Newport News (for Autism) and tomorrow night is Carson's therapy appointment (at 7pm!), then Saturday I drive out to Newpoort News, again to scrapbook with the girl's at Tracey's house. Some days I wish I was a Jetson and could just speed fly everywhere I needed to go...kwim? "Rokay Rorge!"
