Every thing is a thing or Everything is a thing!!

Hello, I have wanted to create a blog for a long time. It is not because I feel I am so eloquent or so smart, but rather I thought this would be a good place to share some thoughts, get some good ideas, and find out when I’ve gone too far!! I am a 40+ Mom of two boys, Bryan who is 11 and Jason who is 8. Bryan is sweet and loving and on the autism spectrum and I’m sure many of my posts will be about him and the journey of a parent and family with a special needs child.  Jason is delicious and mature beyond his years. Jason is the best brother on the planet. He gets it. He really understands autism. How is that possible?

I work full time. That is both a good and bad thing. I love working and love my job, I am an attorney, but don’t practice. I work for a company in their Procurement Dept. negotiating IT contracts. I love contracts, they have a definite beginning and end a d  negotiating is invigorating.  However, I am guilty all of the time. Guilty when I’m not with my boys and guilty when I’m not at work.  I know I’m not alone, it’s just something I needed to say.

Autism is also a good and bad thing. It is hard and frustrating and downright debilitating to both my son and our family. Yet it has also given me some of the greatest gifts in the world; appreciation of the small things in life, like having a simple conversation with Bryan, friendships with people who share this journey and just the ability to need nothing more than just a good night’s sleep to make me truly happy. So it begins…
