Parenting Autistic children should be worth activity points

Yay ! Finally the new oven arrived about 3 :30 in the afternoon, and life can get back to normal again. While we waited yesterday we tried out The Biggest Loser Workout, but kept smacking into each other with the weights. Not a good thing, so we kept having to stop, change positions and then try to get back into the flow of the workout, so I don't think it was as affective as it was meant to be.

We got dinner at ElPollo Loco, but was not totally as planned because they were out of a few things. Hubby went to pick it up with my son, and any time one tries to do something with my son , you need a list or an iron clad thought in your head. I should have gone with but...anyway he woundup getting the grilled chicken, Spanish Rice, mashed potatoes and gravy and corn tortillas. Good news is it is all gluten free. Bad news is it had dairy and is way too carby, but I can understand how it happened. His brain is patterned into a KFC mold, and when you are in unfamiliar surroundings and you are accompanied with a person who chatters non stop about things that have absolutely nothing to do with the activity, things you have an awareness of in ways that do not make sense, you fall into old patterns. Bless his heart for getting dinner and giving me a half hour of silence ! The chicken was AWESOME , the potatoes normal for mashed potatoes, the rice looked more like fried rice than spanish rice. A little high in points, ,low in veggies for the day than our norm, one incident of dairy , but good. We will order from them again in the future, but this time.
