My younger daughter and her partner drove off (from home~San Diego area) around 8pm on Friday night. She had made up her mind that she had to see her father. As a result of their hurried planning and packing, all day Friday was a clusterfuck.
On top of that drama, King Ben is going through some kind of sleeping problem. He wakes up, and stays up, at 1am every other night/morning. He’s on his tablet (and thrashing the house Tasmanian Devil style) until the battery dies, then he demands my phone while his tablet charges. We don’t have a desktop or laptop because Ben aka Taz likes to destroy things. I do everything from my phone.
With my fibromyalgia insomnia, I rarely get to sleep before midnight, even with medication, so I’ve been running on almost no sleep for about a week. King Ben’s Grandma is a tired, addled, grumpy gal. I’m behind on my WP reader…again and that adds to my grumpiness. My WP dudes are one of the few joys I have.
My daughter and her partner should be arriving in Indiana sometime today. Last time they checked in they were just leaving Oklahoma. I can only hope and pray to The Flying Spaghetti Monster that my daughter finds her father sober and that his girlfriend (the rude, mean, vindictive…) stays out of it and lets my daughter spend time with him. His entire family is in the area so she’ll have uncles and cousins, not to mention her grandmother to support her and her partner.
I’ll be trying to check in with all you awesome dudes when I can. I rely on you all. You’re my family and you mean the world to me.💌

I wish y’all the best of luck in this situation 🍀 I’m glad she’s going to see for herself; experience is the best teacher, and maybe this way there’ll be no regrets (or fewer regrets, or different regrets that are more benign than their alternatives). Knowing people like the Girlfriend From Hell, she’ll try to meddle and interfere and sabotage (damn!), but with any luck your daughter can stand her ground and not fall for the manipulative tactics and get the closure she needs. And I’m really relieved to hear that there’s other, supportive, family in the area; she may need it 💓
I wonder if The King has a chronorhythm sleep disorder too? Basically it’s a family of different types of body-clock weirdness, where the body clock is “off” from the world in general. My partner and I both have one, although different types (lol). Madelyn from ADD And so Much More blog has *tons* of great info; that’s how I discovered both my and my partner’s situations 👍 These sleep patterns are common in neurodivergent people, although not totally exclusive to them.
Either way, Dearest Dude, I hope you get some peace, pain-freedom, and good sleep soon! 🍀🤗💓🌈❣️🌸💕☮️😴🌟🌌🌃

Nice that your daughter can get away to visit her dad. Life is complicated. Hopefully she has zero expectations and can accept what this family has to offer.
My 33 yr old older son has lots of family drama w his real dad’s family. His grandparents don’t speak to him and his dad has dementia. Of course, this guy was never around all the years of my son’s life, yet now wants a relationship with him. And he is so sick that he can barely order something off a menu. Go figure. Must be hard for my son. And he is probably wondering if he will have dementia someday as well😔.
All these relationships are out of my control and i stay out of it.
Hadn’t heard of these sleep problems before. Will look them up. Good info there as my boy also doesn’t sleep well.
Hang tough and take naps. Those can be helpful.

Oh no, the sleep! I swear if you were reading some autism blogs right now – sleep (or lack thereof) seems to be a common theme. Oh man, I feel for you. I hope that Ben gets back on track, so you can get some sleep. I hope your daughter and her partner have safe travels. I hope she finds what she is looking in for in terms of her relationship with her father – or gains more understanding into his illness (and stays far away from his wiener girlfriend). Sending super good thoughts, hugs and love to you right now. From a tough summer to a tough fall – I want you to catch a break. Sending you the vibes!! 🙂
Oh dear, I’m sorry you are going through this drama. I sent you another postcard from Sydney, I hope by the time it reaches you, things would have improved. Take care, my friend! 💌
