The tree was decorated with the help of the three year old grandson. He was never happy with it, kept saying it needed more lights and things. So of course we kept adding and adding, but he was happy.
He said he wanted a winter wonderland with my Christmas houses, but of course he had to add a train. His big brother put his train up for him. I thought he was going to add some of his Thomas the Train trains to it but he didn’t.
On Friday after we got the decorations done it all caught up with me and I was sick. Blood pressure up very high for the first time in about seven years and on Saturday morning – it was bad- I spent 1/2 day in the local Emergency Room. Guess I have to deal with this crap again, and with classes starting back in a couple of weeks it couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
Even with the trials of Autism/Asperger’s being around, I am so thankful for my grandchildren to be as healthy as they are. I can always look around and see others that are not doing as well. Sometimes when the meltdowns hit we neglect to see the positives. I think that we sometimes let ourselves get overloaded with what is going on in our lives and forget that we have it so much better than a lot of others.
