Licorice Induced Musings...

Seeing as it's 4 o'clock in the morning, it would more than likely be frowned upon, if I had some Smirnoff induced musings... or would those just be drunken ramblings? I don't know. What I -DO- know is this... Red Vines Rock at ANY hour. But I digress....

So a lot has happened since my post. A LOT. So much, in fact, that for a time, I actually forgot ABOUT my blog, entirely! It wasn't until I was cleaning up my favorite's list, that I saw the link and thought, "Omg, I should start blogging again! How crazy is that, right?"

As I said, a LOT has been going on. Up's and down's. Well, without getting into TOO much. Malcolm is doing amazing. He's talking. A lot. But only when it suits him. Or the mood hits... Usually when he wants more of something. Usually Milk. And cookies. Of course, Jace is following suit. Hey, it works for big brother, right??? But every little bit of progress, is just that. Progress. So, I'll take it.

That's not to say I won't expect a little more later on. But I take what he's willing to give, when he's willing to give it. It's a forward movement. It's not backwards. (Which we were doing a lot of, when he was medicated.) And it's not standing still. :)

We're making plans to move. Out of state. To Texas, actually. Can I put into words just how excited this makes me? Probably not. Because I'm pretty ****in' excited! (Yes, -I- edited that for all of you! ;P ) I just hope San Antonio can handle this Diva, because I have HUGE plans. To pretty much take over the city, and make it MINE. LOL! No one ever said my day dreams and goals were PRACTICAL. I just said they were big and fantastic.

The one thing I'm not really looking forward to though, is the loud, screaming, blatant, in-your-face absence of my Gram. While we'd been making our plans, and day dreaming of our new life in Texas, never once, did I include the scenario that she wouldn't be included. Did I honestly think she'd live to be 235 years old? Maybe. Probably. Okay. Yes. Yes I did. She didn't quite make it. She DID, however, make it to 90. Which is pretty amazing, in and of itself. She was definitely a fighter.And I REALLY REALLY miss her. 



On the other hand, I think she'd be REALLY excited, and downright giddy, and my new obsession with retro/rockabilly. Especially hair and makeup. Like I wasn't already obsessed with these two things, but I'm loving this whole new Rockabilly Diva thing!! LOL. Yes. It's the little things. I take them when I can. Because a lot of the time, I'm so caught up in the small, isolating world of "Autism Parenting", that I often shelve those things that make me smile. So. When I -DO- bring those things down, and dust them off, they bring me immense amounts of joy. Playing with hair products and make up, just happen to be near the top of my list of 'Happy Pleasures'.... Sue me. No wait. Don't. I have enough people trying to get money from me already. ;P

And of course, seeing as it's 4:30 in the morning now... and I'm carrying quite a nice Red Vines buzz, and sleep is probably not going to return any time soon, I will plug in my curling iron, and get to work on some new self proclaimed amazing new 'dos. (Yes, self proclaimed. I honestly don't give a flyin' fig if anyone else likes them. I do.) And yes... I'll post pictures when I'm done with my own little private makeover session. ;))

Until then..... Don't be a drag..... Just be a queen! (Another new obsession = Lady Gaga! ZOMG!)
