'Tis the Season

december 13 2008

'Tis the Season

1. Do you enjoy receiving or giving presents more?

To be honest: both.
I love little presents. They break the day.

2. What is you favorite holiday film?

Most years the rest of the family has enough to watch, so there's not really a chance to make my own choice.

I hate violence and that stuff though.

3. Have you started or finished your gift shopping?

Finished, because the gift season is over here.

4. What does this time of year mean to you?

It means that I have to be a kind of social police woman, communication translator and a lot more, because 5 people with autism spectrum disorder are between the same walls all the time.
I need to be available all the time to prevent them misunderstanding each other.
This time is stressfull and allows me, in a way, no room to be myself.
My online friends are not available, because they're with their own families and friends.

I miss those who died and who made these days in the past pleasant.

Already I feel like running away.
Two years ago I said I wanted to spend christmas in england or scotland... please send me the tickets. LOL!

It's like hibernationtime and I can't sleep.

5. What is your favorite holiday song?

The first noël.
I used to sing it with two of my friends. One of them died three years ago, the other a few weeks ago.

6. What do you love about the holiday season?

The nice graphics.
And the fact that my girls like the season.

7. What do you hate about the holiday season?

Almost everything.
Especially the fact that people talk about peace so nice and they do nothing to create peace in their own environment, support war, etc etc.

8. Do religious ceremonies play a part in your holiday traditions? If yes, how?

We went to church, but my children don't care about how others think about them. They can't sit still long enough.
We have to travel too far to go to church anyway.
When we go home there are no busses anymore.

So I watch mass on TV and have my own silent moment when everyone is to bed.
I think God can deal with that.

9. Who will you spend the holidays with?

5 autists and 2 daughters.

  1. There are some beautiful graphics this time of year.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I see what you are saying Laane, in some cases SIDS can be prevented because if the child is under the parents supervision or is being monitored they can immediately go to the child's aid. These are steps to lessen SIDS so yes you can say SIDS can be prevented and in some cases no. It's just like cancer sometimes it can be prevented and sometimes it can't. If a perfectly healthy person decided to smoke they have a higher risk of getting cancer and less prevention but if they don't smoke and it's hereditary from mom having breast cancer that can't be prevented but you can take precautions such as getting a routine physical and checkup. Sorry if my wording confused you. I guess I should have written Precautions to help prevent sids.

  3. LOve your Saturday 9 tree! Sam told me she wanted to rip it off and put it on her blog! Make some time for yourself, too, Enjoy the day...
