Think of Today as Wednesday

It will help make the rest of the work week/school week go that much faster. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We did. Girl had two basketball games this weekend. She played her butt off. The coach has them squaded, which they've never been before, so they're not playing as well as they have in the past. The school's all uppity about this equal playing time (they don't do a cuts system), so now, these girls who have won for the last two years, are all of a sudden losing every game. They're SO mad, but there's nothing they can do. I'll fight for them though, since it really was the parents (and I'm definitely one of them) complaining about how many games the girls played and how much it interfered with the rest of their lives, including schoolwork, that caused this in the first place. Even the girls who are not the "best" players have said that they'd rather be sitting on the bench and be on a winning team than getting equal minutes while they lose. Different rant, different day.

Stayed up too late watching movies last night. NEED COFFEE!

In my incoherence this morning, I almost forgot the reason I'm posting today. I want to introduce you to two more ASD bloggers: Tina at Autism 911 is fighting for the rights of ASD children, particularly Native American - school programs, outside of school, ABA, etc. Her blog is rivetting and will keep you coming back for more. Lora is Griffin's mom. She is a phenomenal woman - single mom, working part time and raising her son while fighting for him.

Read these. They are wonderful, moving, inspirational and I think you'll find them very informative. OH...Laura, Lora also suspects that SHE may have Asperger's. The blogging world is amazing, isn't it?

Bring on the Girl Aspies! Any age! And I wish it was Wednesday. I've already forgotten G.'s cello lesson, been to the hospital, forgotten to take out the trash...
