Keep on trucking

That’s a phrase that takes me back and while I have no article to post tonight, I think that phrase describes what I’ve been doing for the last few days. I didn’t have my kids this weekend so I just worked on planning for the future of my oldest son (and his siblings).

Working on updating my life insurance while getting prepared with some workshops over the next few months, to open up an ABLE account and a Special Needs Trust because that’s what dads do for the kids with special abilities (and their siblings). Oh yea, and that’s what we librarians do, research.

Sweet dreams!

Shopping without distractions

Honestly, there are lots of things I would love to do without distractions. We are so inundated with needless sensory overload. Having gone to a movie without those annoying previews and the lights on with my kids, thanks to our local chapter of Autism Speaks, taught me that years ago.

So when I saw this article entitled “JC Penney Hosts Back-to-School Shopping Event for Shoppers With Autism” over at The Mighty by , I knew they were on to something. I also seem to recall a store in England doing this a while back and thought, when will I see this over on the other side of the pond? Well, I wonder no more.
