Just So You Know If You Didn't Already...

I thought I'd better get this in before April 3 rolls around and then it would be too late. Just for the record I did NOT wear blue today, not because I don't believe in and support autism awareness, but because blue really isn't my best color. I am, however, wearing pink. The Murph wouldn't let me put blue light bulbs outside either so we are not going blue anywhere outside either. The Murph does have a blue shirt on that says Jazz pure cool. We will pretend he's autism aware!


Poor Murph has become more autism aware over the past two plus years since we've been together than he ever thought he would be. (or wanted to be!) After being around the Boy for those years he jokes with me that autistic people are hard to be around. He doesn't like it! I explained to him that the Boy is only one example and not all autistic people are like the Boy. The Boy really isn't that bad most of the time. Just difficult some of the time and those times can usually be prevented if we plan ahead of time for them.

Our version of light up the blue

The Murph still has some awareness coming to him!

The Murph told me not to forget to mention the 5k run for autism I am doing this weekend. I will probably wear pink then too. Coincidentally, the autism society is doing the walk/ run here in Birmingham on the same day as where the Boy goes to school. I told him about the race and suggested he do it, but he wasn't convinced.

The Boy may or may not be wearing blue today for autism awareness, but no matter what color he's wearing, I just hope it is clean and wrinkle free.  Okay, forget wrinkle free. If it's just clean I will be a happy mom. Even when he was living at home with me, he didn't make it to school with wrinkle free clothing. Neither one of us did because I don't iron. It's a hazard for me to handle anything that gets that hot.

My refusal to iron my ex-husband's dress shirts is one of the reasons we are divorced.

Now I hope you become as aware of autism as we are! It's all fun really!


  1. I almost never iron. Once I start, I enjoy it, however. Ironing is hardly needed in this house because most of my things are knits and J's shirts get done professionally.

    1. Most of my things are knit too. Nothing to iron around here!

  2. For hottest information you have to go to see the web and on the web I found this website as a most excellent site for latest updates.
