Quarantine Diaries


Part 1: Week One of The World Shutting Down

Please understand that I am in no way complaining about or making light of the situation, but his blog is about autism; my son’s autism and the way his mind works and deals with things and that is just what I am going to write about.

Quarantine Diaries Part 2: DC’s ‘Twenty-Nineteen’ (29th) Birthday

DC spent his 29th birthday in lock down. At the time of his birthday, this lock down was still relatively new and confusing to him.  I felt bad for him because he so looks forward to his birthdays, seeing friends, receiving gifts and going ‘out to eat’.

Quarantine Diaries: Part 3 – Easter in Lock Down

Once DC’s birthday was over, he quickly moved on to reminding me about Easter. In true DC fashion; birthday over – he quickly moved on to Easter,  #ItsWhatsNext – Quite honestly, I hadn’t given Easter a single thought. I had forgotten all about it.

Quarantine Diaries: Part 4 – And It Goes, On and On

My last post on this blog was written after week one, when I still had to go to work two days a week. (Week One of the World Shutting Down – which I am counting as Quarantine Diaries – Part 1)

Quarantine Diaries Part 5 – Masks, Garlic and Jelly Beans

As you might imagine, DC is NOT a fan of the mask.
I have tried a few different variations, but he hated all of them.

Quarantine Diaries: Part 6 – “Yay, Yay, It’s Mother’s Day!”

Shhh! We’ve officially passed the time of night on any given holiday when DC decides this one is over and begins to “remind” me of whatever is coming up next (in this case, Mother’s Day, I would imagine). He hadn’t said a word. Weird. Just weird.

Part 7: Flowers for “Vicki”(e)

DC woke up this morning with a “Happy Mother’s Day” for me. He then moved right in to asking what we are going to eat later. I made the mistake of telling him that we would try to get Chili’s takeout (HIS favorite place) for dinner so that is all he is interested in.

Quarantine Diaries Part 8: Bald and Toothless

I confess that there is a little (a lot) of venting in this post. Everyone needs to vent once in a while, so I will be doing just that. One cannot vent without using run-on sentences…. just so you know.

Quarantine Diaries – Part 9: Story-time With DC

In an effort of trying to keep this guy busy, we have been recording stories (and some songs) to post on our Facebook Page (Take Another Step). DC is having fun with it.

Quarantine Diaries – Part 10: Pizza, Planting and Friends

Since my venting post last week, things have been better. Maybe because I got all of my complaining out of my system – I don’t know – but it’s been better.

Quarantine Diaries – Part 11: Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Last week I saw a post about a Sabrina The Teenage Witch Virtual cast reunion. I went back and forth with myself for a day or two between –
