Morning Already?

By Joysautismblog @joysautismblog

It’s 3AM I must be lonely….

Does anyone remember that Matchbox 20 song that I wore out a cassette tape playing? Yes a cassette tape kids, they used to put music on those…

No really, it’s 3:11 in the morning and I’m awake and I’m not happy about it at all.

My plan is to get up at 5 something to do a few things I need to do before we get ready for the autism walk that we are doing today. I’m hoping the weather cooperates. My weather app on my phone has a cloud with some ominous lightning and rain droplets next to “Saturday” so I guess we’ll see.

We grilled out last night. It didn’t exactly work out. Our coals just did not get hot enough and after an hour of waiting we decided to pack up our dry and not quite done hamburgers and finish them on the stove at home.

While we were there a teenager was there with his sister or someone I guess. He was pushing a bunch of kids on the merry-go-round including Adrian. He was pushing it very fast and Adrian got excited and started yelling out. The teenager looked very startled,worried he had hurt Adrian or that Adrian was scared. I got to go explain that he has autism and he’s just excited but he isn’t hurt or scared.

Blah…I like a deserted park…last night’s park was not deserted. Far from it. I saw a boy about Adrian’s age come up and try to talk to him and Adrian just walked away. I felt really bad, worried that he had hurt the boy’s feelings.

Ok, that’s it. Think I can sleep for a couple more hours? Probably not…I’ll probably just call this 3:17AM morning and try to make it through the day.
