Well we are going on day four of the Rotavirus. Yes, it started on our Christmas Eve celebration day. Daniel was the first to receive the not fun symptoms. Now all three of them are feeling it and having symptoms. I haven’t slept, am overloaded from cleaning up not fun stuff, the smells from it, the smells from cleaning supplies to clean it up with and the moments of freak out when it has touched my body, I am a bit overloaded. Sorry for any visuals any one may have, I tried to keep it as non-graphic as possible so no one will experience it in their own minds.

Enough of that let’s about the good stuff!

The first part of the morning went great. The floor was covered in Lego’s, we got Daniel a talking dictionary which he loves and a snap circuit set, in hopes that he will make his own electronic experiments and stop using all of our appliances to test his theories. So far with what energy he has, the snap circuits have worked but that could change at any moment. :-)  Everyone was happy with their gifts, the sickness didn’t hit until later in the afternoon. Daniel was quite fixated on the snap circuits and now we know it was because he was feeling so bad.

We did go to mom’s house the next day.

We went to my mom’s because we were unaware that we had a virus floating around. We thought maybe Daniel got sick because of the excitement and possibly he was overloaded. After we were there for a little bit Joshua started to complain about his belly and we had to cut the visit short. I will just say we made it home just in time. The good stuff is that everyone is still happy and playing well despite feeling so bad. And we are just enjoying spending time together. David is swamped and has some deadlines due by Weds. so he is not able to join in the fun goings on down here with us. :-)  I am hoping very much that I do not get the symptoms because I do not know what will happen if I am down!! Anyway I wanted to share some of the awesome books that David got me that I am very excited about.

I hope everyone else had a much better holiday festivities!! We are looking forward to the New Year!

( I do not make any money from putting these up. I use Amazon because you can look through it online, I guess you can with some on Barnes and Nobles too.)

1001 Great Ideas for Teaching & Raising Children with autism or Asperger’s

The Hidden Curriculum: Practical Solutions for Understanding Unstated Rules in Social Situations

David has already sent me to this one several times to quick reference how I misread him and he misread me because my face did not match what I thought I was saying or feeling. So far it has come in handy! I am thankful to have all of these resources for me and the kids, especially when they get older.

The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Sourcebook: A Guide to Healing, Recovery and Growth

(I received the first edition of the PTSD book because it was only $2.00 on half.com!)

And since I am currently fixated on how the mind works with beliefs and behaviors I received this book.

Battle For The Mind: A Physiology of conversion and brain-washing.

I have several reasons for reading this book but I do like having a balance of thoughts. I have been told in the past that I should not read things like this because it will confuse me with my faith. I personally have found that it does not, it actually helps me to challenge my thinking and develop my beliefs with a  healthier state of mind. But that may just be me. :-) While we all rest and try to get back to our healthy bodies, I will be doing a lot of reading. The kids got some news books too that we will be reading together as well!
