Adam's Journey

Homeopathic Healing of Autism

A House Becomes a Home

on October 15, 2012

So I can pretty much feel your eyes boring into the computer screen as though I have just shlunk into the house after curfew.  The lights flick on and I nervously apologize for my untimely response and brazen lack of courtesty to all my faithful blog readers.  But this time, I have a good excuse.  I promise.


That’s right!  The family has packed up and moved out of our tiny, cramped bungalow into a much more spacious split-level with room to grow.

It’s great.  Fantastic even.  Dare I say super awesome?

And I’m not even upset one bit about leaving that crummy little house.  The house where my sweet little Adam was born.  The house where both my precious babies grew into such amazing kids.  The house beside the corner stop sign where Emersyn got picked up on her first day of school.  The house across from the most beautiful tree where many a picnic was held in the summer and in the fall Jon would bury the kids in leaves. 

*Sigh*  That house used to be my home.

It’s OK. I’m not THAT choked up about it.



Whaaaaaaaaaaat?  There’s just something in my eye. 

Well…on second thought, maybe I am mourning the change of address a wee, tiny, little bit in a sappy sentimental-mom-kind-of-way. Don’t tease me about it though. I’m a mom teetering on the edge of sanity.  🙂

It’s OK though. The new house is great and I’m well aware that it will soon become a HOME full of its own memories.   It has much more room for the family to grow and it’s pretty much the only house we looked at in 8 months that satisfied all our original “must haves” when we first started looking to upsize. Well, I should clarify that it WILL satisfy our checklist of “must-haves” once we tear it apart and put it back together again.  The process of which started a few weeks ago.

So, hence the reason I’ve been such a deadbeat blogger.  The upside is that Adam is still on a break fro his miasms so it’s not like I have all these juicy tales of healing that I’m dangling over your heads conveniently just out of reach.  Insert maniacal laughter her.  Muah, ha, ha, ha!!!  🙂

I should let you all know though Adam has started juniour kindergarten in an Autism classroom at a local school.  How’s it going you ask?  Pretty good, I suppose.  I would say PERFECT if it wasn’t for the other crying children that are now the source of his school-related anxieties.  But I’ll divulge more school related tales when I’m NOT living at my sister-in-laws and NOT using a prehistoric laptop that belongs in some computer museum somewhere.  Sorry Share.  I love ya but your computer needs to be put-down.

So this is not goodbye but so long. 

Til we meet in cyberspace again. 

(Hopefully within the next month lest this momma gets tired of teetering on the edge and falls hard and fast into Crazyville.)

    I’m so happy to hear about your update — I’ve been missing your voice!

    Congratulations on your new home. Yay, yay, yay, yay, yay!

    Good luck with your renovations, temporarily being uprooted and getting settled in once your new home is ready for you to move in. Sounds like a very busy time for your family!

    Glad to hear that Adam is doing well at Junior Kindergarten.

    Take good care,

    I know you are crazy-busy with the new house, but you forgot to mention Adam’s singing! I feel like this is a major developmental gain… especially since he used to cringe with fear when people would start to sing. Every once in a while I catch myself thinking about Adam’s sweet little voice (“on top of spaaaagheeeettiiii… all covered in cheeeeeeese!”) and it brings me peace. Love that little man!

    Oooohhh! A new house. I have to admit, I am envious! Our house is, how shall I put it – bursting at the seams! Hopefully you get to settle in soon and enjoy all that new and wonderful spac. It is exciting to put your own stamp on a new place isn’t it? Best wishes with it all.
    Glad to hear that Adam is adjusting to school. Reece is on a “miasmic break” as well. He actually developed chicken pox so we (homeopath and i) have been working with a classical nosode in order to help his body push out the pox and bring about more healing. So far, he seems oddly comfortable despite the pox but we are living in extreme OCDville! Anyway, we are anxious to see what lies ahead on the other side of this illness. Keeping my fingers crossed for mare gains!
    So glad to hear from you. Keep us posted!

      Hi Shaunessy! Nice to hear from you too. Glad to hear your son is coping well with the chicken pox (I cringe over the fact that I got both my kids vaccinated – I hope they still get it at some point while they’re kids). I’m sure a bigger house will come to you in time. We waited almost a year for ours! Take care, and happy healing! 🙂

    I have been wanting to respond to this post for awhile now, but we just got back from a 10 day trip out East. I can relate to the bittersweet feelings of leaving a home full of memories for something better but not quite YOURS yet. We also moved out of the house that I brought my babies home to from the hospital and it still brings a tear to my eye when I think of their nurseries.

    I can’t wait to hear more about Adam’s school experience. Thomas was out of school for two weeks while we were on vacation and he is excited to start back tomorrow. Thanks again for the update!

      Hi Brianna! Nice to hear from you! I hope you had a lovely trip out east and that the kids were good as gold.

      About the nurseries, I can relate. I kept telling the hubby that the longer we stayed in that house the less I wanted to leave. Too many memories. Luckily, we’re moving while the kids are still young and we have plenty of time to make some new ones.
