I was just reading a parenting article. I saw the title Surviving the Teenaged Years. and thought I need to read this. It was the normal blah blah, mild punishments of short duration. Actually I thought the short duration of punishments was for training dogs, you know if you don't punish the dog immediately it … Continue reading How To Get Along With Your Teenage Child.
I was in the shower this morning thinking. Now this is unusual, thinking anywhere, even the shower. It was probably because I didn't have my usual audience. My regulars: Orion was mad because I took him out of the shower before I turned on the water. I'm not mean I had to let the hot … Continue reading OMG, GTH With Your PDA.
Read the Preamble first, hopefully it will make you less angry! Then read the next bit and then this one because... Well that's how I wrote them. I think there is kind of an order to it, you know if you read the bits separately they appear to have no clear beginning, middle and end, … Continue reading Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or If Autistics Ruled the World! – Governance The Serpent That Destroys All!
Sorry about that but I got hot and I wanted a break and Ta Dah I am back. Read the Preamble first, hopefully it will make you less angry! Imagine a world where all the neurotypical people have disappeared.

And how the higher concentration of logic and ordered thinking available with the autistic brain … Continue reading Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or If Autistics Ruled the World! – Preamble
Of course I do. Everyone does. I hate rereading a piece until I hate every stupid word. I hate the futility of not being able to see my mistakes because I know what I meant. But I really hate the wall I just hit. Background: I know I am not that great a writer; but … Continue reading I Hate Editing
Apparently my husband posted that one of our dogs was sick, I received a concerned email. This is what happens when you let husbands have blogs of their own, they get out of hand. I don't read his posts too much because they are so depressing, except I found out what happened to the Vodka … Continue reading Doggie Daddy Sounds the Alarm
'Those that can; do. Those that can't; teach! Those that can't teach, teach Phys Ed.' One of my favourite sayings, but therein lies the problem. I like this because it picks on PE teachers; I loathe approximately half the PE teachers I've met. I have met some seriously great ones too, but I digress. I … Continue reading But I Don’t Want To Teach Phys Ed.
So I was standing at my child's bedroom door watching a concert she was presenting. The Machiavellian imp lured us (her parents) in by asking us to watch 1 song; one song is a hefty price to pay but worth it for an hour free of: "Are you coming to watch my song yet!"

Or Shut up Catherine! I know I am what is generously called a big girl, and I know that no one wants to see that. I get that, I’ve given up trying to look attractive. I have 3 main aims with my clothing and I have never actually succeeded at them so attractive is completely … Continue reading I Am Not An Exhibitionist
