Anyone reading my blog for any length of time now knows I've been on a long, long road -well, for the past six months, I've been on two long, long roads.
The shorter one -a six-month stretch -was one involving my blog and Google Reader. My reader, with respect to MY blog, stopped functioning properly back in July, on that Friday when so many bloggers had their masterpieces marked as Spam and had a difficult time getting back on track again. I wasn't THAT unlucky but since my reader stopped updating my blog then, that was bad enough for me. I have endured this all this long, trying desperately to get it fixed so my blog would update on the readers of those who had subscribed to it.
Well today, something happened -I'm not really sure what -I messed around with the reader thing again, got a little help too from a tech person at my ISP -and now, I think all is healed with the Reader! I heard from one blogger already telling me my blog updated on her reader today -with 25 new posts showing there!
Am I happy? You betcha!
The other road I'm on -have been for a number of years now -is not one that I -or my family will ever be able to leave though.
That road is the Autism Highway and we are all traveling that road, all the time, because my two younger grandchildren, Maya -age 5, and Kurtis, who will be 3 i April both are autistic.
It is indeed a long road. It is often a very difficult road to maneuver too as there are not many signs that give directions on how best to reach your destination. And that destination sometimes differs greatly too from one traveler to the next.
It's a road with lots and lots of curves, many hills too that must be climbed. Some of those hills are tiny knolls, while others make seem more like climbing Mount Everest without a trail guide!
But, regardless of the way this road wends on and on, it is, in my opinion, still one of the most beautiful highways one could ever travel. The scenery along my road is gorgeous because Maya and Kurtis make it that way. Each little accomplishment one or both of them masters makes that leg of the journey absolutely breath-taking and magnificent.
Right now though -after six months on the rocky reader road and the two nights in a row with Kurtis keeping me up and wake for most of the night, trust me when I tell you this, but I sure could use a chance to escape.
Maybe some weekend getaways would be just the ticket for me about now. I'm thinking if I could pull this off, this one in particular would be great cause then I could also stop down and visit my cousin Ken and his wife, Laura, who I haven't seen in over two years now!
