You know how sometimes you just don't even realize you're feeling crappy and it just hits you out of the blue? That kind of happened to me the other day. I was feeling homesick, missing being with my friends and family on the 4th of July holiday, celebrating and having fun. Then I got into an argument with my husband, which is just really rare for us... I was just very weepy and sad. Then we started talking and realized we were both feeling frustrated and needed to have a talk with our son. Trev is going to be 20 in a few weeks, but he has Asperger's and his social and emotional level is more like a 15-year-old. But he's scary smart. That can be a frightening combination. So we talked and made some decisions and then we sat him down and had a chat, and it went surprisingly well. Trev has never been interested in driving. But we feel like it's a big step towards some independence for him, and that it's important for all of us for him to take that step. He actually agreed with us and I made him an appointment to take his learner's permit test next Wednesday. That was a big thing, and it made me optimistic at a time when I needed it - life works in mysterious ways, doesn't it?
