Many years ago, I started giving haircuts to my husband and son. Our finances were tight and I found a tip about saving money by giving haircuts at home. There was an initial investment in a razor with attachments but it paid for itself quickly. The razor set also had instructions for a basic haircut, which helped. My son was a toddler at the time who found it hard to sit still. He also did not like the sound or feel of a razor, which made it challenging to do a haircut in one sitting for him.
This will be a short note, it is getting late and I need my sleep. I have finished up the initial section of the book which presents the main characters and the initial story. This next section is made up of flashbacks for the main characters and provides some background for ideas that I describe in the first section and will continue to use in the rest of the book.
In less than a week, we are releasing a book about life with our autistic son. The project started as a recommendation from a friend. The original intent was to share our challenges as a family and give an inside look at what life can be like with autism. While we’ve worked on the book, I have also thought about my own reasons for publishing our story.
I am pleased to post a video of John and I reading from our book "You Don't Want to Go For a Ride", I thought people might enjoy an author reading.
Also, a reminder about our Goodreads Giveaway, you can sign up through September 4th for a chance to win one of two autographed proof copies of our book.
Summer is almost over and I remembered I have pictures from some of our summer activities. Posted below, some pictures from the Padres game we attended in June, the Palomar observatory we visited in August and big clouds that were generated during some of our extra hot weather. No pictures of the eclipse, I'm afraid. My camera just wasn't up to the task and the pictures were too bright.
