Good morning. Make sure you're not weraing shoes with laces or anything else that people notice on April Fool's day so that your day is easier with less April Fool's jokes (unless you like being the brunt of a joke, of course).
hi Doris, snowing here, that's no April fool's joke. Shouldn't amount to much, but come on now! I am better today. #bgnow 113. yesterday it came on so fast, you know the nausea, heart pounding, itchiness, and even though I only got to 280, it completely knocked me on my butt. I hate to have such an unproductive day. Felt better by late afternoon, and made us a nice dinner, shrimp in a tomato/dill sauce with feta cheese. just wonderful. don't forget your camera on Sunday.
Ya, 18 was pretty Good. We were invincible, you and me eh? :D
Geez, your Daughters certainly missed out on Grandparents too like me. Your Folks are almost all gone too. Very Sad. You’re an only Child? Wow! That must have been lonely. I hope that you had lots of Kids in the neighbourhood to play with and for sleep overs, like I did. Our Kids are Happy that we had 2 of them.
Your Grandmother sounds fiesty alright. I’m surprised that she can over-ride Doris though. LOL! That’s Very Nice that you’s help her out when you can. I don’t want to get to age 80. I’m sore enough as it is. LOL! How is her health? No actually at her age she doesn’t have to keep up with the times. Sorry! Ha! That’s okay Doris. We all get upset sometimes. Just try not to stress yourself over it too much. I know it’s hard. We just want you to feel Well.
Oh, lol, I know. He'll be 23. He is just as upset as I am about Pete leaving cuz they have been like brothers since he's with us for the last 5 years. They are like having twins. That was the whole point of taking him in. His foster parents were getting divorced and he had no where to go. Just turned 18 and legally no longer in foster care where a family would get money to keep him. He was a friend of Pete's for 2 yrs prior to that. They met thru a mutual friend and had common interests and bonded. So when this happened we took him in, amidst his protests, cuz he "didn't want to be a charity case" Told him my sad story. Pete was a twin and I lost one and his brothers are 6 & 9 yrs older so by the time he was in 7th grade he was virtually an only child while they were away at College & working.I always has a sadness in my heart that was hard to live with. Taking Keith in gave me the chance to see what twins would have been like. So they were just starting college & now they are graduated and Pete's new job is in Pittsburgh --- 5 hrs away.He is like my son. Going home to his mom was never an option. He was removed from her place when he was 12. She has 4 kids from 4 different guys and lives with an abusive, alcoholic. Not a good thing. He never beat the youngest child cuz it was his son.... who is 10 yrs younger than Keith. He still sees his Mom but she does nothing for him financially and he is not looking to go to Grad school in fall. So we'll celebrate next week. I know what you mean. My husband didn't really take my diabetes seriously till his cousin lost a leg becuz of it and during my past illness we found out I has a silent heart attack, somewhat common they say for diabetic women. So now he gets it. Hope you are well & have a great time going away. <3 <3 Joanne
Me ??? ready to fall apart. Emotional stress and exhaustion from getting all ready to go for tomorrow. My knee is killing me ever since my stress test and up and down the steps all day packing doesn't help. Will be a tough weekend. I feel bad cuz my foster son's birthday is on the 3rd and we'll be in Pittsburgh. He'll have to wait for his cake = (
QUIET ???? Don't know when I've encountered that lately. We are moving Pete to Pittsburgh tomorrow. It's been busy. Did I miss your Birthday ?? If I did, belated greetings to you and hope it was wonderful. Enjoy the peace while you have it.
Good morning. Just stopping by while I'm getting ready to take my son to school and then to the doctor's appointment. She called me yesterday to discuss my fasting blood and urine test results. Said everything was normal but my fasting BG and a slight urinary tract infection. Wants to give me an MRI to try to figure out what's going on with my nerves. The symptom that concerns her with my nerves is a little tingling sensation that runs up and down my limbs. It's less intense than the pins and needles sensation, just a light tingle for no apparent reason.
doris, you lucky dog. enjoy your special day. btw, i finally got my new computer in and can slowly get back in touch with all of my friends. but right now it's back to going through almost 2000 e-mails. it looks like i'll be busy for a wee bit.
That’s a Good day to get even. On your Birthday. How old are you going to be…29 like me?? :D Sorry about your BS ups and downs. Are you over-correcting/over-compensating? What does your Endo say?
Thanks! My Dad died 3 days after my 37th Birthday. But it feels like it wasn’t so long ago. My 2 Bros died 7 and 5 years ago. I say Hi to Dad, them and my Mom-in-law(Sweet Lady) everyday cuz they were my Loved Ones and Very Special to me. Yes, they are watching over us. Thank God Mom is still with us. I sure know what you mean Doris.
hey Doris, I had to go back for a follow up with the oral surgeon. I can get started on the implant in 3 months. hope it's not as painful as last time (different doc). gots lots of sewing done today. would you please pm me your address, the post office box, I want to send you a card and I misplaced it somehow. I hope you get it before your vacay.
Logical and natural consequences are usually more effective than spanking kids. An example of a logical consequence would be: if the 3 year old won't play gently with a toy, remind the child of the rule "please play nicely with the toys", then if the child continues to disobey, say, "you are playing too roughly with that toy, so you can't play with it for a little while now." Take the toy away calmly and ask the child to do something else. An example of a natural consequence would be: a child misbehaves at their party, causing their guests to say things about their manners. You don't have to say anything about it unless the child asks you why the guests complained (but kids are usually smart enough to figure it out on their own).
Other gentle strategies are quiet time and time out. If the child whines or starts having a fit, remain calm and put the child on quiet time. (Quiet time is when you have the child sit down at the edge of the room and quietly watch for 1 minute per year of age. It starts when child is quiet and gives the child a chance to calm down.) If the child won't go on quiet time, put the child on time out. Time out is when the child sits alone in a corner or a different room from the activity and is quiet for 1 minute for each year of age. Time out won't start until child is quiet and sitting still. It starts over if child starts talking or moving during time out. When the child is done with quiet time or time out, thank the child for doing as you asked and move to a different activity or say something like, "now show me how you do that nicely" if you want to give them another chance at the activity you had them doing earlier.
I know, right? I wish kids were well-behaved more often. Take deep breaths and try to relax when they start getting you upset. Calm down before you do anything to correct them. Then you'll feel better about your response to those kids.
