I'm antsy. And that's never good.
After this last weekend I find myself pacing and feeling sulky.
Ever have one of those weekends where everything you say comes out wrong?
Thursday, my first official day off, I was driving MiniWarrior to school and was joking with him...and made him cry.
Because he is so high functioning I forget (at times) that he is Autistic that he does not understand teasing.
At best he gets the most rudimentary jokes that a toddler would understand.
For some reason, language humor does not compute.
I know this. Yet I forgot in a temporary moment of levity, trying to make him laugh...I made him cry.
I spent the rest of the day feeling like crap.
Things got better when I went to pick him up from school and he greeted me with a tight hug and a look on his face that said, "I forgive you, Momma."
The next day in another attempt at levity...I managed to piss off my Guy.
Which...left me feeling like crap.
I'm all sorts of discom-humor-ulated now.
