So, I’ve been busy. So busy that I missed last week’s Top Ten Tuesday post and didn’t get this week’s done in time. So here’s a silly Top “Five” Tuesday/Wednesday post on what I’ve been up to:
1. Research, Finding, Calling: researching more about Autism, trying to find a new doctor for AJ and making […]
My son has Autism-Spectrum Disorder. He also has a speech delay.
We had a wonderful appointment today at the OU Child Study Center–I highly, highly recommend them. It took us 10 months from when we requested the appointment until today, but it was worth it.
We have good support and plans for moving […]
Tuesday, August 23rd is a date that our family has been waiting for. Back in October, we finally convinced our son’s doctor to contact the OU Child Study Center and refer us to them for an autism evaluation. The OU Child Study Center offers a team approach to evaluating and assessing autism-spectrum disorders (ASD). There […]
Sort of a personal update for a Top Ten List, but here’s what’s going on in my life.
This is Tobi, our new puppy. She is about 8 months old (birthday 12/20) and is a Husky/Boxer mix. She is full of energy and an aggressive licker. She is also my new […]
This Tuesday Top Ten is inspired by some questions I received from colleagues in planning for maternity/paternity leave from their churches. Especially for female clergy, but also for male clergy expecting children this is often uncharted territory in negotiating with a congregation. Here are some tips from my experience, which was fantastic, in negotiating, planning […]
Last night I watched one of my favorite shows on one of my favorite channels: Property Brothers on HGTV. And just as I had the previous week, and the week before, I was disgusted. Why do I watch it then?
I love home improvement shows. Even while living in an apartment I loved to watch […]
Today is my son’s third birthday. When I look at him and see how much he has grown it is hard to believe he was that small (even at 9 lbs 5 oz!) little thing my husband handed to me.
As I reflect on today and the day of his birth, I am reminded […]
Yeah, I know–such a narrow focus for my readers, but I have better ideas for my Tuesday Top Ten posts in the future. We have been very busy at the Disciples General Assembly in Nashville–between meetings and greetings, we just came back from the Country Music Hall of Fame. I’m not a big country music […]
We’re still unpacking. We’re still trying to find things that we *know* we moved from the apartment but can’t find yet in the stacks of boxes. And there are still a few odds and ends at the apartment we haven’t retrieved yet (like the vacuum, which we need SOON!) So my posts over the past […]
Two big things have happened in the past couple of weeks in my family’s life:
1. I was in a car accident and my car was totaled, and
2. We closed on our first home and are moving in the next week.
First of all, you should know I am fine. AJ was in […]
