This is just too awesome!

I'm not a huge Lady GaGa fan, but I do like this song...especially when it's performed by an orchestra! Enjoy!

Happy Fathers Day to the Worlds Greatest Dad

Happy Fathers Day Dad! Through thick and thin you've been there for me. Thanks! I love you!

Well, CJ needs four separate evaluations: Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Psychology and a Developmental Pediatrician. And yes, it's four different appointment all at least an hour away. Lovely. One appointment is in August, two in October and one in December. Safe to say we won't have a diagnosis til after the new year.

Do any of you know any moms/dads with children that have Autism/Aspergers? If so please let me know. I'm looking at the dietary changes that are suggested and want others opinions on them. Also, just looking into different treatment methods.

I have been asked by a couple of people how all of this makes me feel. In a way I feel that what I'm feeling is wrong but at the same time right. I feel sad that it's happening to my son. I'm angered for the same reason. At the same time I'm happy that we're finally getting this nailed down and figuring out how to handle my little angel. Thanks everyone for your love, support and prayers!

On a brighter note (literally)'s sunny today! It's been rainy for awhile now so having the sun has been great :)

A tad frustrated..

So, I've been waiting and waiting and waiting to get CJ evaluated. It seems like I've been waiting forever. I finally threw a bit of a fit on the phone with the scheduler (poor lady) about what the hold up is. Apparently they've been very busy b/c of the end of the school year....wait, I sent my stuff 2 months ago!

She didn't know what the hold up was but the good news is he is now in the computer and a psychologist is reviewing the paperwork. I was told it would take a week, it's now going to take yet another week before I know what kind of schedule CJ will be on. We'll have a couple different appointments then have to wait for the review and then I'll finally get a diagnosis. Geesh!

But, overall I can't complain. CJ is truly my little blessing. I have been fighting the lonelies (being the last of your single friends is hard LOL) and this morning I get woken up by my amazing son. He climbs on top of me, puts his head in the crook of my neck, hugs me and says "I love my mommy". I wanted to cry. He's my dude, I can't imagine life without him.

So here's a picture of him last summer. Photo taken by Robyn.
I love his sort of mohawk! The guy in the background is my friend Gabe...he's coming home in a few days. He's been in Germany forever!

As most of you know, I sit here and constantly say that I need to start getting in shape and eating better. I do well for about a day then bam, I stop doing well. I know, it's all about will power but damn! It's hard work. I don't keep crap food in my house. I figure that if it's not here I won't eat it. Wrong.

I'm very good at making a quick trip to McDonalds, Taco Bell or any other place that serves wonderful, nutritious food like that LOL I'm on a tight budget. I have to stop eating out. It eats up all free money I have and in the end leaves me struggling at the end of the month. I don't have a problem with soda, thankfully.

The only other problem I have is I'm such a picky eater. I try new foods all the time. I'm not a huge fan of veggies (I try them all the time, but the taste is just awful). The only veggies I do like are lettuce, carrotts and potatoes. I know, pathetic. I love fruit, I could live on fruit alone.

I'm trying to teach my son good eating habits but he has a hard time trying new things. He has an aversion to weird textures. Any suggestions on getting him to try and like new foods?

'E' wants to go out again! I'm so pumped. I can't remember if I said this in the post yesterday but I forgot to thank him while at the game so I emailed him a thanks then told him that next time we hang out he should come up here and we could do dinner or something.

He responded back that he would love to come up here to hang out! He lives about an hour away and having a guy that's willing to drive and/or take turns driving is pretty awesome.

I'm ecstatic! Now, I just need to wait for him to call. I have to keep myself from emailing/calling him. That's the hardest part for me. I need to make them come to me!! LOL

Oh and my sunburn? Yeah, it's so bad my muscles hurt. My face is burned to the point that it feels like I have a really bad cold. Ouch.

Hope ya'll are having a good day. My day started crappy and now it's great!

Edited to add: He hasn't contacted me again about going out. Too bad for him!
