“WATCH IT, WATCH IT!”
THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER FOR AUTISTIC INTERPRETATIONS®
Welcome! I am Val. My adult daughter Jess and I live together and have a loving and fun relationship. We share our daily adventures, travels, struggles, and the strong loving village that surrounds us.
What Happened in January? Seriously, I don’t know…
My goal publishing date for our February edition of Watch It, Watch it! Was February 4th. We are only 9 days late on that, but for really good reasons: Hannah, Marlow and I were on a very time intensive calorie counting diet, Hannah’s birthday was Feb 3, and on Feb 4, we had an amazing and exciting visit with Chris from Special Books By Special Kids (SBSK). Two days later, Granddad had a heart attack. (Granddad had 3 stents placed and is doing very very well.)Was there a January? I can’t remember already.
What would I do without my Instagram Feed @autistic_interpretations as a diary of my life? Otherwise, I would never know what has been going on. (I pretty much have to do this every time I write a newsletter.)
As I review my Insta feed to remember what’s happening in our lives, I am reminded of our first time to use Caroline’s Cart. What a great experience it was, and since then, we have used one again. The second time it was at a grocery store! It was so perfect because Jessica was almost past going and needed to lie down for a nap. Caroline’s Cart saved the day and enabled us to get our grocery shopping done. Without the cart, we would have had to give up on the shopping.
If you want to suggest a Caroline’s Cart to your local stores, here is a link to the “Dear Store Manager” letter that is provided on their website: https://technibilt.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/dear-store-manager.pdf You can find Caroline’s Cart on Instagram @carolinescart and on Facebook at Caroline’s Cart. The Caroline’s Cart is made by Technibilt.
What’s The Deal?
A brand new thing for January was the first recording of our new, anonymously sponsored, restaurant review series titled “What’s the Deal?” Jess and I had lots of fun with this and look forward to many more. You can find episode 1 on our YouTube Channel ! (If you like our videos, please subscribe and then click the bell Icon to be notified when we post new videos.
Cooking with Nonnie
In January, we posted the first video in our “Cooking with Nonnie” series, and recorded another one. In our first video, Jess and Nonnie make Squash Casserole. Here is a link to the video which also has the recipe: https://youtu.be/4Qu0e4ELvww
Haircut, Window Shopping, Birthdays, and Bad Rap
Other things happened in January… One monumental event was haircut day. Overall, it was a success (minus my hurt feelings). Also, Jess and I did some window shopping at Michael’s where I learned that, apparently, Jess needs one of everything for her birthday, which is only 7 months away. Baddaddy’s and my mom’s birthday were in January. A new podcast was recorded with Annette and May from Behind the Breakthroughs, and maybe the best thing of all… Jess made a shift from toddler tunes to bad rap!
