    It was your last sentence that got to me. I always want to know why Justin does certain things- it is a joy to me that my other autistic child can tell me. Nice post, and kudos to you for the Crossfit, I think my body would literally disintegrate!

    You are such a lovely writer. Your stories not only touch my heart, they help me to understand.

    This is great way to show how little we know about people by just looking at them. It just takes some extra effort just like. Crossfit. Thank you for writing this.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    I tried Crossfit twice. Hardest thing ever.
    I loved it.
    Only time in the last few years I was totally focused on something besides our day to day. Can’t afford for now but hope to recapture that feeling someway…

    Carrie, you inspire me every week to try harder. I want to tell you that today was a banner day in the life of my family. My grandson graduated with high honors, and made a standing ovation Valedictorian speech to his class and audience. Why is this so special? He has Aspbergers. His whole life has been a challenge to him. He has come so far and is such a fine young man that he is a outstanding role model for other young people who face special challenges. What I want to say to you, is to keep on keeping on. Your emails are so full of love and hope and I look forward to them each week. Pix are posted on my FB page.

    I find it so interesting that you Crossfit. It is my therapy!!! And my passion. Something I do just for me. You did an excellent job of explaining what it is. Haha. I always find that difficult. I can’t express to you how much your blog means to me. It touches me so deeply every time. And just FYI, my 14 year old autistic son, Will goes with me 5 days a week to our box and plays his I-pad while I workout. I have to go at times when there is no child care (which isn’t often) so there won’t be kids all over the place. Will can’t stand to be around little kids (crying, wining, high pitched voices, or even the threat of those sounds . . . you know). The owners are very understanding of our situation. That’s one thing you didn’t mention about Crossfit. We are like family. The people are positively amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your world with us!

    I look forward to Monday because I get to read about your life…and it helps me understand “our life”. Usually Mondays suck…I work in property management (this is where I hide from “our life”) so I get to deal with other peoples problems that I can actually fix….but sometimes it takes a while or coaxing or something. Every afternoon my husband picks up our son from school and brings him to my office where he does his thing. He takes out garbage, sneaks into the real estate office in the front of our building, gets candy for his sister that also works in my office, go into my office managers office and asks a million questions…and so on. Everyone knows my son and knows that I love my job for 2 reasons…I can hide from our life and I can fix a million problems.
