In The Autism World Lately


My helper, Alex, is always putting things away.
"Away" being a relative word.

  1. That's cute - it works "part" of the time, huh? Wishing you guys a great evening.

    1. Yes, some of the time things go where they belong! Some times, not so much,...but it always makes me laugh!

    2. I was thinking as long as the light switch is in the on position, it works! Like Wanda says, I know your days are difficult, but I'm glad you can laugh occasionally. Growing up, my mom was legally blind. One time, she held up a can and asked dad "is this peaches?" He's reading the paper and says yes. We had carrot cobbler that night!!!! Sometimes you just have to laugh!

    3. Oh yes, I figured that out after I'd commented. As long as we didn't want it dark, we'd be ok! ha.

      Carrot cobbler...haha....I'm surprised she didn't notice the smell wasn't right. Men do tend to say 'yes' from behind the newspaper pages, don't they? Hilarious.

  2. That really the cutest thing ever. I know there is a lot not to smile at with your 24/7 life, but this is just funny, and I love that you find it so too. Not unlike where Don puts things when he's trying to help. HaHa

    1. haha...Oh, yes...I know what you mean! Sometimes I can't find something and can't get a hold of the mister at work and I have to say, "Think like Jeff...where would he put that?" haha. But Alex just cracks me up. I laughed out loud when I walked through the laundry room this afternoon. :)

  3. Life certainly is an adventure sometimes.
    The smiles do definitely make the day a bit brighter.

    1. I came back to look at the picture again.
      Years ago my mom babysat a little guy who repeatedly hung his bottle on a little metal hook on the end of the cabinet where Mom usually hung her dish towel. I love little things like that.
      :0)

    2. He probably thought that was a clever little bottle holder she had! :)

  5. It always helps if you have a sense of humor, you my dear have a wonderful one :)
    I like it that the men help you around the house, even if it turns into a scavenger hunt next time you need the item !
    Hugs,

    1. Yes, a sense of humor has come in handy as far as survival goes. I would be dead without it! ha!
      Harry does a few funny things, too. In the last couple of weeks, he's insisted all the knives be on the magnetic strip
      on the side of the refrigerator....even the dirty one laying in the sink! haha.

    1. This one I wasn't expecting. He'd only been home about 3 minutes. Just cracked me up! :)

  7. So? What's wrong with that? I do it all the time. I always know exactly where my scissors are; in the fridge, next to the back door key.

    1. Do you also take off your dirty socks and put them back in the closet with the clean ones? Harry has been doing that lately. :)

      Delete
    2. No, I just take my dirty socks off and stand them in the corner! Ha.

    1. He does love to put things away! He has to do certain things before getting on the bus in the morning or going to bed at night! Sigh!

    3. Sorry, Michelle, did not mean to cut in ~ my comment went to the wrong place . . . :)

    4. He does keep himself busy making sure things are where he thinks they should be.
      Some of it is a bit irritating but most of it is just funny! :)

    5. Perhaps he heard you talking about a power CUT . . . :)

      Delete
    6. Is that like a power outage?

      Delete
    7. Yes . . . same thing, but with your phrase the scissors somehow lose their relevance . . . :)

      As long as the light is on
      we'll be able to find them from night until dawn.

  13. I like it. It all makes sense to him and to me too. That switch can do double duty.

    By the way, I love your little basket holding... dryer sheets? Very sweet.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, dryer sheets. And the scissors usually hang on the hook along with the basket. I guess he thought the scissors went on that wall somewhere, he just couldn't think exactly where. haha.
