Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!  We are supposed to get RAIN not snow today.  Happy Dance!  Oh and the plumber who was supposed to fix my bathroom at Christmastime is planning to be here this week!  More dancing!

Last week I planted Tomato seeds and I have sprouts this week!  Seems that I do have a teeny tiny bit of Mom's green thumb!

In case y'all haven't figured it out, I take the weekends off from blogging.  If Son is around, I try and do things with him and if he is not around, I do things for ME!

This weekend, Son wasn't around so it was a weekend all about ME!  I love those.  Saturday started out with sleeping in and then heading to the Mall.  Auntie Anne's was giving away free pretzels!  Aren't they the BEST?!?!?!?  So after a stop at Starbucks and Auntie Anne's, I had Breakfast!


After breakfast, I wandered the book store.  I love that place!  Then it was time for the William and Sonoma cooking demo.  And they share samples!  LUNCH!  Another lap around the mall and I was ready to head home.  Of course, I had to stop at the grocery store and Wal-Mart first.

The rest of the weekend was pretty boring, just housework and pampering.  Then Son came home.  I certainly hope I have recharged my batteries enough to deal with him for the next 2 weeks.

His father decided that since Son WANTS to do the Lego group that its ok with him.  Nice.  Since when do we let the 11 yr. old CHILD make decisions about his therapy?  OH!  I know!  When we are not REALLY a parent.   Grrrrrrrrr.  OK.  Enough complaining.   Son starts LEGO group this week!  YAY!

I have a meeting through the Autism Center about IEP's for autistic children and can't wait.  This one is a basic overview of the process and there is another one next month about goal setting in the IEP. I can't WAIT for that one!  I also have a meeting with the Behavioral Specialist to go over the difficulties we have been having recently.  I need help and since I have a wonderful resource, I am going to use them.

Things are looking up!  Hope everyone has a wonderful week!  I am planning to!

PS  I just re-read this post and I sure do have a lot of LOVE!  LMAO!


  1. Ohhh...I remember having those weekends. The ones when C went to his Dads and I had two days to myself. They were the glue that held the other days together =D

    Im so glad that your son will start the Lego group. No matter how your ex got to that decision, it is the right one.

  2. nice. sounds like a great weekend...starbucks...need me some...

    glad your son is doing the lego group. look forward to hearing how that is going...

  3. Nothing like a good pampering session! Just relaxing, with nothing pressing to do is absolutely bliss!

    It's good that your son is starting the Lego Sessions!

  4. Having a lot of love definitely isn't a bad thing! Well, as long as it's directed at the right things I guess :)

    It's so nice to have a weekend by yourself, looks like you treated yourself well!

  5. I don't blog on the weekend either. I figure if I did that it would become something I don't want to do. Blogging is for me.
    Your picture made me drool by the way. Made me crave that starbucks lol

  6. You need to take time for yourself! I need to do the same!

  7. Ooh, FREE pretzels from Auntie Annie's and a Starbucks, I am so jealous!!!!!!!!

  8. Ooh, FREE pretzels from Auntie Annie's and a Starbucks, I am so jealous!!!!!!!!

  9. I love my "other" weekend. It's the dirty little secret they don't tell you about when you get divorced. I cherish mine. I'm glad your plumbing is going to be fixed soon.

  10. Sounds like a great weekend. And it think it is great that you are taking some time off from you blog to spend with son.

  11. Oh my gosh, I LOVE Auntie Anne's pretzels.

  12. Well you cheered me up. Love and Lego.



Leave me some seeds
