What Is This Thing Called A "Blog"?

I just fell off the edge of the world, and now I have returned. Actually, to be honest, do you know why I haven't written here in so long? It's because I said that I was going to scan Niko's picture, and I haven't. And it seems incredibly hard to go to the garage, locate the scanner, and do all of that! I'm easily overwhelmed. Does that make sense? I think it makes sense. But I do plan to do it soon. After I mail in a few contracts and make a few phone calls. This week, maybe?Yes. This week. :)

We have an appointment in mid-May with a child development specialist. In Boise! So we'll see Luke's parents and Pyper! I can hardly wait! For that aspect of it...the actual appointment will be hard. We also have a heart echo, MRI, and EKG scheduled. And we're meeting with a new pediatrician, since the old one is a minion of Hell.

That said, check out http://www.abrokenlaptop.wordpress.com/! I have a lot on my plate right now, and I'm very excited about it! I'm taking steps in the right direction. And I have a few new pieces out. Also, A Cup of Comfort for Parents of Children with Special Needs is coming out on May 12. I'm story number 6, "Peanut Butter Toast". The book is ten dollars and you should be able to buy it at any major bookstore. Isn't that awesome?! I've officially infiltrated Barnes and Noble and Borders! Bwa ha!

Today the bookstores, tomorrow the world.

My favorite song this week is "Waiting" by Shiny Toy Guns. It's song number 25 down on the playlist if you'd like to listen. Bitterly sweet and melancholy, with a touch of longing. Delicious.

I really like "Waiting". I'm so happy you get to go to Boise and see Pyper. That will be so nice!

Remind me again the day your book comes out! I so want a copy! :)

I have a son with WS also. He is 13. It can be overwhelming at first. My son came to us late in life. We used to say he was a surprise, but now we say he was the prize.

YES!!! My son with WS is 4 years old. You should see my house. I've told my husband how I picture myself doing these cleaning and organizing projects. It's not for lack of time, I've been unemployed for 3 mo, and I was sole wage earner so my husband is home too. When I actually get into organizing things, it really doesn't take very long at all, but I just somehow can't get up and get going. Plus Mikey is still in his spinning phase so all toys become immediately scattered across the floor as he spins them (he can spin blocks on a corner as if they were tops, he can spin tubs of PlayDoh, he can spin anything!). Who has the energy to clean that up? My sitter made the living room pristine last night, bless her heart, and 24 h later it looks like a tornado hit again.
