My wonderful computer that I adore is on the fritz... we need to take it in to get repaired but are waiting until we have the money to fix it ... so in the meantime I am stuck using this teeny tiny wal-mart netbook and it is sucking my creativity out of me. Don't get me wrong- I am thankful to have it! But it makes posting pictures really hard and the teeny tiny little screen and keyboard are annoying and it just seems to take me longer to get stuff done. But wow, I would seriously be screwed without it! So three cheers for cheap computers, even if they are slow.
Sometimes I find it hard to believe that 4 years ago all I did on the computer was check my email. And 15 years ago I never used a computer. Ever. My how things change.
All that aside I just wanted to share a couple of especially cool things that happened this weekend...
1. my mom got back from her vacation and my kids are SO excited to have her back! I'm sure she has gotten more hugs and kisses in the last two days than she has in months. She also brought us all presents :). Welcome home Grandma, we missed you!
2. the weather was so beautiful today that I was outside in jeans and a t-shirt for the first time since last fall! Lovely. I love you Spring xox!
3. Tonight when I was putting the boys to bed Owen asked if I would read "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss to him. I was right in the middle of giving Aiden his inhaler so I said "how about you start it for me Owen". So he did! And then he just kept on reading!
Owen read me the entire 62 page book.... it makes me all emotional just thinking about it because I am so darn proud of him He struggled so much to catch up to his class in reading and to see him just pick up a book and read is a beautiful thing.
So ya, it has been a very good weekend.
By the way- it is Autism Awareness month so if anyone has any questions they would like to ask me about Autism or about Aiden specifically or how we do things around here please feel free to ask. I am happy to talk about it!
