Shitty Day

I was going to do a cute post I was tagged in today. Unfortunately nothing about this day has started out cute. I am still camping out in the Living Room on an Air Mattress. Next month my Futon and Frame will be delivered. I will be done paying it off by then. I rather pay for a more expensive one than have to replace it in six months. 

Anyways the boys have the room but Tafari Sleeps with me. I was getting uncomfortable so I moved to the couch. I used to pull that out but it was like sleeping on a bed of steel poles. Last night I was able to get four hours of sleep. I woke up to a weird smell. I jumped up and stood in Shit. I can't even say Poo-Poo, doodie, Caca... no this was some grown man Shit! Tafari decided to take his diaper off and smear it on the Hardwood floors. Now this is where the challenges of having an Autistic son come in. If it were any of my other kids at that age.... Lawd have Mercy! But no I am standing ankle deep in Shit and I have to work on MY SKILLS the ABA therapist is teaching me. WTH?! But I did it, because i love my son. I just can't wait for the School Bus to get here fast enough and come get this Shit Kicker!

I usually don't whine about how Autism affects our daily life. The main reason is, I am a glass is half full type of gal. There are parents out there dealing with bilateral basal ganglia infarctions (a type of stroke)metastatic neuroblastoma and parents losing there beautiful children way too soon . Some real deep issues, I am fortunate that I am not worrying about Dialysis and Chemo.

I do have a little bitch and moan section for the next Pour your out by Shell Post. So keep your eyes peeled Wednesday for a whiny ass mommy!! I gots some venting to do!! Time to pull Tafari out of the Bath before he soaks my Laptop!

Oh bless your heart. I am so sorry and you can vent as much as you want to. We don't blame you. I mean who wants to stand up in crap.

Amy said...

Danielle said...

Glad you have a blog where you can share your feelings!! It is always good to vent. Hope this afternoon is better!!

Kmama said...

Oh my goodness. I think that's definitely worth venting about. What a rude awakening for sure!!

Nicole said...

Oh noooo! What a way for monday to rear its ugly head!! Hope the rest of the day is crap free lol (yes I think I am funny!) :)

Jane said...

You have a positive outlook, and you definitely deserve to bitch and moan every once in a while!! Stepping in shit is, well, shitty!~ Hope your day gets betta!

Monkey Man said...

I tried not to laugh, but youj have done such a wonderful job of taking an extremely stressful situation and making it funny. My heart goes out to you. My daughter has anxiety disorder, but it is nothing compared to your situation.

Brittany Ciara said...

Venting is a good thing. I'll be camping out in the living room soon as well. I'm sending hugs your way for a better afternoon.

Meeko Fabulous said...

Look at it this way . . . Your day can only get better! Right? :)

Nancy C said...

I admire you. You love your boys and are working hard. If you didn't get upset or at least need to vent about shit then you wouldn't be human.

Candice said...

Man, that's a shitty start to your day indeed.

I hope it has improved since then.

*LLUVIA* said...

I'm sorry to say I was laughing trying to imagine you stepping into caca! I'm also sorry you had a shitty moment.

But I agree with you, AUTISM seems minuscule compared to what the mentioned parents are going through. The fact that you were able to see the "bright" side of this makes you extra awesome!!

Hang in there momma. Everyone has rough patches and everyone has the right to have those validated. Tomorrow will be better.

Lisa said...

HUGS great big ones. I hope your day gets better. Hug that beautiful boy for me!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Beautiful picture. sometimes, we need to vent, don't we? and that is okay. I hope the rest of your day has improved.

Margaret said...

I can't even imagine what you go through on a daily basis. To be honest I think I would go crazy if I had to do it. You are a strong woman!

Shell said...

You poor thing! My middle son did something like that SEVERAL times. Though, he rubbed it all over the textured walls of his bedroom. Soooo freaking hard to get off. My knuckles literally bled trying.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Yea...WOW, that sucks, I would have screamed and cried probably--which makes you so awesome!

Love the pic!

blueviolet said...

Oh no....that is not a joyful way to wake up!

Jane said...

My Aspie son is going to be 14 this week. Trust me, the challenges get bigger once they hit puberty. Just last night I stood at our kitchen sink so angry at my son. I had to stand there for a few minutes to compose myself. I do so much and get such a challenge in return. Still, like you, I rarely complain because I know there are others who have so much more on their plates. I hope your day gets a little brighter :)

Kat said...

Poor you...I'm so sorry! But then again, looking at that angelic face at the end of your post, lucky you as well :) He IS beautiful! Poo and all :)
