I’m a mother of two girls and two boys. I’d tell their ages but it changes every year. lol
Some of my kids are in the Autism Spectrum and some have ADHD. I have researched a lot about the ASD and am involved in a local support group. My kids have counselors and we are involved in Big Brother Big Sister.
I enjoy and am addicted to photography. I also love to film. I would like to find a way to edit things and then I would film more. I used to love cooking but not so much anymore. When there are people around who like to eat and arent picky then I suddenly enjoy it again. I love art in many forms. Pictures, drawings, acting, dancing, books… I hate to see people waste their talent and I try to encourage folks the bast I can. The arts runs in my family. I don’t think we can help it.
I often talk or write about religion because it was a huge part of my life growing up and into adulthood. All that time (about 38 years) I learned about religions through Christian sources. I was sorry to find out that many of those sources either lied, or spun the truth. I have been researching things from the actual sources themselves and learning in a better light now. I enjoy giving people a chance with out already having my mind made up about how they believe or even think. I chose the wiccan religion as my family religion because I love what it stands for such as, peace, love, forgiveness, open mindedness, non judgmental, caring for all creatures and the earth and so on. Personally I am agnostic. There is just to much to learn to close my self off to one way of thinking. I will be learning forever and I love it that way.
I am adventitious. I keep a mental bucket list. Many of the things I will do one day will have to wait till the kids are grown . I would love to do them with my kids but either I can’t afford to or they aren’t interested.
I wanted all my children to be astronauts but they closed the space program this year here in the US so now I guess they can be whatever they want. lol
I love humor and good stories. Some of the things I want to do and be one day are; A variety talk show host, on a woman’s talk show panel like the View, stand up comedian, making movies, in plays, globe trotter, inspirational speaker, author, astronaut , and so on. I will use what ever it is I get involved in to further autism awareness and other causes.
My short term goals is to get a large house with a fenced in yard for my kids and I.
I love the taste of coffee!
Update – 5/10/13
My kids and I are now living in central Michigan. We wouldn’t have chosen this place but their dad had a “change of heart” and asked that the kids be near him so he could be involved with them. In this past when we tried this it was a disaster, but then again it was my idea. So we gave it another go but this time with no real expectations. So far it is ok sometimes, occasional good and sometimes not so good. Still better then the first try.
We are currently living in a lovely two story low income housing home. It’s actually a very nice place. The downside to it is my daughters have a walk in closet size bedroom. We have no personal back yard so we can’t have a trampoline or a garden. Only one pet per home allowed. And we live near a stinky factory. I know that may sound fine to others and terrible to some but for us it’s been fine for now, just not forever. We really want to live in an RV and travel the US (it’s called full-timing). But the kids dad feels it’s unsafe. This annoys me cause I have done research on it and he hasn’t but such is the man. Still the kids and I want to be able to travel and see friends and family so I am intending to get an RV and a smaller cheaper home so I can afford it and we can actually go places. I don’t want to find my kids all grown up and we only wished we could do things but never did. Of course once we actively start this new adventure I will be blogging and vlogging about it. I really wish we could do a reality show about it, that would be awesome!
Now I just need to figure out what has happened to WordPress. The media button doesn’t do anything which means I can’t download pictures. There’s a lot of other odd things not working on WP as well. I hope it gets resolved soon or I will have to move my blog else where.
