I’m sitting here munching stale gluten free chex oatmeal for breakfast because my doctor says my cholesterol is high and so…oatmeal.
I decided today is the day i get back to my blog and why not while I choke this stuff down?
It would be better if it weren’t over a year old.
Homeschool year 2015-2016 is DONE.
Paperwork is signed, sealed, and delivered.
I have a month to our summer school session to rest on my laurels. (love that saying, but i imagine my niece with that name being sat on and thats no good)
Except actually I don’t because I have more school planning, our wedding to put together, kids to manage and that green stuff to try to earn.
Weddings are much more complicated than they should be. So far we have clothing, flowers, wedding party people, musicians, photographer, cake and catering sorted.
This leaves us with figuring out the ceremony, vows, what the musicians will actually play, getting rings, printing programs, determining schedule day of, finishing booking hair and makeup, settling on what shots the photog (friend of the groom) will take, and countless endless other considerations most of which have fallen to me. Mostly, to just me. It all involves talking to people, many of them strangers.
If I had a time machine I would travel back in time to 8 months ago and whisper to my sleeping self “justice of the peaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace. thats what you waaaaant”
(no I would not warn a conscious me, because I know me, I would have stolen the time machine from me and would still be sorting out the headache of endless paradox)
I’m happy and grateful that both Kevin (fiance guy i keep mentioning) and I will have family and friends to share the day with. It’s just…
Anyway, my poor blog has just sat.
I’ve been thinking about the blog, and what direction I should take it.
I question what the point of this blog actually is,
To reach people? – only a handful of people read it. I just don’t have the traffic save for some extremely popular autism posts.
To develop my writing skills? eerrr well, thats been sucking lately huh?
and what it is actually about
autism? homeschooling? nature? randomness?
People come here for my autism tagged posts but my subscribers are mostly home-schoolers. I’m preaching to the choir concerning home learning and I don’t think any of my ideas concerning autism acceptance are new or all that groundbreaking.
Is it an autism parenting blog?
I hesitate to describe our lives in too much detail because bloggers (no matter how positively) who focus on their children or loved ones autism or other various struggles, leave me with a bad taste. There are some well known bloggers out there that are all about neurodiversity, acceptance, positivity, etc, who I feel put WAY to much information on the web that is a disservice to their child. Often the children do have a say concerning it, but I question if they fully realize what they are consenting to. It is a difficult line.
This is why it is rare for me to relate a personal anecdote and why I will never blog about a tantrum or private conversation, or even specific incident concerning them.
so yeah, I dunno.
