Go Elsewhere, Just for Today

Today is a day for me to brag about some things that I'm doing elsewhere on the internet. The first thing I'm going to tell you about is something I am really proud and excited about. I've created a new website called AutMont, which features autism information, events, and hopefully (eventually) community for Montgomery County, Maryland.


Right now, its main function is as a central calendar for local people interested in autism to find meetings, support groups, classes, and fun activities. It just went live a couple of days ago, so I'm still finding my way, but I can't wait to see what direction it goes.

If you know someone who is in my area and has a connection to autism, let them know about the site. You can also follow AutMont on Twitter.

I love my new site.

I also love my old secondary site, The Junk Pyramid.


I'm back over there as of today, publishing about my decluttering efforts and providing tips and resources for living a clutter-free life.

And for those of you yesterday who said that the gerbil photo should be our Christmas card? Well, BetteJo was on the case. Check out what came into my email inbox this afternoon.


I think the background makes Quinn look even surlier.

  1. First, LOL! I love the Christmas card and you're right, the background only adds to Quinn's pout! Secondly, what an amazing resource your new site is! Thirdly, I am in desperate need of help in decluttering and organizing, so I'll definitely be following along with the Junk Pyramid!

  8. That Christmas card is the best!!

    I meant to post this the other day, but I couldn't find it, but do you read My Charming Kids? The woman in the picture with the squirrel is their home care nurse (one of her kids has a heart defect).

    And, your autism site is au-some! Way to use your blogging forces for good!! (Not that you normally use them for evil, but you know what I mean!)

  12. That card just needs one more thing: a Santa hat for Quinn would set off that pout nicely!
