Welcome to my work in progress. A little rough around the edges, but hopefully will educate as well as provide some relief for those also going through the craziness of daily life with Autism. Hope you enjoy it :o)

5 questions

1. If you were going to be stuck on a deserted island, which 5 books, movies, people and foods would you take along?

5 of each? Hmmm.
Books: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Janet Evanovich Twelve Sharp, The Bible, Breaking Dawn, and something baseball related.
Movies: Toy Story, Field of Dreams, Back to the Future, American President, and A Christmas Story.
People: Jim, Jerrod, Meri Ann, Lauren, Brenda, Jenni D, Lindsey, my kids, My nieces and nephew, and Jamie. (yes, more than 5. Deal.)
Foods: Margaritas, Pizza, Cheesecake, Bread, and Chicken.

2. What is your thought on year round school?

I'm all for it. Kids get SO BORED in the summer. It's too long.

3. What is your most embarrassing potty story? (Can't be one of your kids' potty stories either!) Hee Hee! This cracks me up and stems from a HILARIOUS twitter conversation...

I don't know that I have one.

4. What's the temperature where you are?

TOO COLD!!! Currently it's zero. When I got up this morning, it was -11.

5. Are you a winter/spring/fall/summer person?

Summer!!! Summer means swimming and baseball!!!

Goodbye, 2012.

Yet another year of emotional roller coasters. I can't remember the last time I have lived somewhere for at least a consecutive year. I have moved so many times lately it's ridiculous.

Anyway, the year started off normally. (whatever 'normal' is for us.) Went on vacation to Arizona with my dad in March.

The Hospital where I was born.

In the visitors dugout at Chase Field!! Home of the Diamondbacks!!

Came back, and was kicked out. We won't relive that, but the next few (okay, 6-7) months were complete hell. Again, no reliving needed, but just thinking about it makes me sad.

I know things happen for a reason. If I hadn't been kicked out in March, I probably wouldn't have had a chance to get in so many hours at work right away. I also wouldn't have developed the relationshp I have now. (Who, by the way, is the total opposite of my ex in every way. WHEW.)

I went to many Twins games.

And had random fun with the minons. All six of them.

I also started school again. It's going well. Even in math!!

I'm hoping that 2013 is better. Starting off a little rough, what with having to find a new place to love AGAIN, but I'm sure it'll all work out.
