I’m sitting in the most perfect New England weather. The sun is shining and there is a slight breeze. I don’t sit outside very much because I’m so easily distracted by…life.
The wash is in the machine.
The bills have been paid.
The tough phone call to our social service agency has been made. Maybe someday I’ll write a post about how un-employable I am as a result of sporadic care for Aidan. Someday. Just not today.
I’m trying a little self care here. I have my huge glass of water in front of me. There is butter warming on the counter for brownies. I’m going to set the computer down in a moment.
I have things to write. About how Aidan is transitioning at school and how I’m transitioning as a parent. About living thirteen years without a diagnosis and then not only getting one but meeting real live people on the same journey. About Liam growing up and how we define family and what I’ve learned about siblings.
All these things can wait.
For now I just want to tell you that my words are up on the Parenting Page of Yahoo today. Check it out here. Here’s to hoping someone is set free today.
