Review and Resolutions
December 31, 2009 2:38 PM by Devon Alley
2009 has definitely been an interesting, powerful, productive, and amazing year! It really has been a year for personal development for me, and I have to confess that I'm very proud of the progress I've made so far. I've transformed into a much happier Read More...
I Want A Rattlesnake For Christmas
December 30, 2009 7:34 AM by Devon Alley
I absolutely adore Christmas morning. It is, by far, my favorite morning of the entire year. Nothing delights me more than Aisling's absolute excitement about Santa Claus's visit, presents under the tree, full stockings, and the entire spirit of Christmas Read More...
Learning What Not To Do
December 28, 2009 7:37 PM by Devon Alley
Sometimes, the best way to learn What To Do is by learning What Not To Do -- and that was definitely the scenario that Thomas and I found ourselves in at a giant family gathering on Christmas Eve this year. My extended family is scattered to random corners Read More...
Aisling's Adventures in Occupational Therapy
December 26, 2009 7:49 PM by Devon Alley
I am seriously behind on my blog updates, and I couldn't apologize more. I've spent the last week completely consumed with a racking cough and absolutely zonked out on cold medicine, because the Spirit of Christmas thought it would be best to infect me Read More...
Putting Plans in Place
December 21, 2009 5:39 AM by Devon Alley
My apologies in my delay in getting another update out on the site! As you can imagine, preparations for the impending holidays have kept me extremely busy, and I haven't had much of a chance to sit alone with my computer without a hundred other responsibilities Read More...
Dreams and Inspiration
December 16, 2009 10:12 PM by Devon Alley
Early Monday morning, I woke up from a very interesting dream. I was back at my old high school, sitting in a desk, surrounded by my old classmates. Even though my peers were all still the young adolescent faces I remembered, I realized that I was (as Read More...
So Much Anger for such a Tiny Little Girl
December 10, 2009 5:42 AM by Devon Alley
Well, the first few days of the week went extremely well. Aisling didn't fuss over her homework, didn't show any disappointment about only being allotted half an hour of video game/computer time each day, and seemed to be making extra efforts to be helpful Read More...
Thank You for Comments, Feedback, Ideas, and Snow
December 7, 2009 5:21 AM by Devon Alley
First of all, I wanted to thank everyone so very much for all of the support, feedback, ideas, and resources everyone posted to the previous entry. It's interesting, because one of the things it helped me remember is that, before Ais was verbal, she threw Read More...
At the End of my Rope
December 4, 2009 6:44 PM by Devon Alley
Wow. So, that was unexpected. It turns out, Aisling lied to me yesterday. Not only right after I picked her up from school, but even after I poked and prodded her psychologically, stressing to her how important honesty is, explaining that I wouldn't be Read More...
Roller-coaster Ride
December 4, 2009 5:50 AM by Devon Alley
As per usual, it's been a rather roller-coaster week, which is part of the reason it has taken me so long to come up with a coherent entry. We have not implemented the "fishbowl of video game time" yet, so it's still unclear how that's going to play out Read More...
