A Giggle For Today

Monday, September 22, 2008

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.



If you can't eat it or play with it,



Just pee on it and walk away.

It Was A Bad Day Yesterday

Saturday, September 20, 2008

Yesterday was a start of a bad day. dd2 woke up super cranky and wanting to argue...in the past, i have gave in to that...she definitely knows what buttons to push...uhg...but yesterday as soon as she started, i took a deep breathe and told her the conversation was done...she started again, i just said we are done..finished...she tried one more time...and i just repeated we are done...finished... she was quiet the rest of the morning :) then went to work, and i swear, it was idiot call in day... i swear, every other call was an idiot...lol... i mean really...customers would call to see where their shipment was, and didn't have tracking numbers, didn't even know where it was being shipped from... ok..i am good at my job...but only i can do so much if the caller doesn't know anything about what they want... then cause i had so much over time and they are trying to cut that out, i was suppose to go home at a noon...didn't get out until almost 1...come home and the cable and internet was off again... to say at this point i wanted to cry was an understatement...so i just sat down and rested... didn't take a nap, but didn't do anything else either...lol... then did some errands and went and got girls from their school... while waiting, i called my mom and told her i needed a night without dd2...i love the child...i really really do... but she can also push buttons like no body i have ever seen... she had her sister in about tears the night before..so mom agreed to take dd2 for the night at some point during the weekend...wohoo!!! i am going to be doing a happy dance...lol... but the goodness did not last long...son called and was furious cause the cable was out AGAIN!!! ok... like i can help this... and told him so...the dd1 needed to go do some things...finally after getting what needed to get done and getting some cleaning done, things were calm enough for a couple games with the cranky beings...so luckily we did end the day on a good note...

this morning, dd2 is already up and yelling...and again... i take a deep breathe and tell her we can hold a reasonable conversation without yelling and screaming...if not...i'm done...finished... she really really hates this new thing...me on the other hand am loving it...and proud of myself for not reacting :)

    Curious how old is DD2? Does she forget to eat? When my DH forgets to eat he gets crankly like that.

    Kitty, I think one of the hardest things to do as a parent is NOT to react. And that is SO-O-O-O hard when all your buttons are being pushed over and over again! I used to think it was avoiding the problem, but in reality, it is preventing the problem from escalating and getting out of control!

Congratulations on keeping your cool and maintaining peace!

    WooHoo!!! Way to stay in control! I am already dealing with this kind of thing with my 9 year old, and I too get to the point where I tell her that we are done discussing it, and if she wants to continue to argue, she can go to her room until she can think things over.

Hopefully the rest of the day will be a lot more relaxing for you!

    I think all DD'se go through something like this. Then when they grow up and leave home it doesn't break your heart, of course we do still love them through it all LOL.

    You go JoDee! Don't put up with that silliness. I mean, I realize the silliness is coming from a 'child' but still. It isn't normally worth the frustration.

I do hope today is better for you and is more productive (even if it's just productive "me" time!!).

Have a great weekend, lady. Glad to have you back!

To All My Team Members & Co-Leaders

Sunday, September 14, 2008

Many of you know about Kitty's world and the crazy life i have been leading...ok..since birth...lol...but more crazy the last couple months...i want to thank each and everyone here for helping me keep afloat....you all through out those life lines and kept me from falling under...i thank you...the blog comments, the comments on my page, the goodies and the spark mails have all kept me striving to be the best me i can be no matter the circumstances... because of each of you, i did not fall into all of my old habits-fast food, bad eating habits and drinking only coffee and soda...i strived to keep up with my fruits and veggies...i drank my water...i continued to try to fit in exercise and yes...even a little me time...i didn't turn to alot of fast food, and when i did, i made healthier choices... i didn't do this on my own though...it was your support that got me there and kept me there...and i thank you.

Now on to the other news..as of tonight...i will be starting the postings up again...that's right...the kitty wants to know and all the weekly posting...the one thing you will see different though, is how i post the weekly's...it won't be all on sunday as before... i'm spreading it out through the week... there is so much information i want to share, but haven't cause of time... so i have had to sit down and have a heart to heart with myself, i still want to do all the posts...share what i can... but how to do it in a manner that would fit my life, even with the crazies...lol... so now, i spread it out... a little each day... taking those baby steps that i have learned not only through my flylady routine, but through SP...

Remember co-team members...if i can do it...so can you... you can keep living a healthy lifestyle even when the crazies hit... you can still be the best you... you can do it.... just baby step it all the way :)

My Gripe-OTC Inhalers Pulled Off Shelves

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Ok..so i am a single mom, don't have lots of money for doctors and such, nor do i really have the time...so for my asthma, i just use the over the counter inhalers...i use them responsibly and take all precautions... so i go to the drug store to buy a new one to find that they have been pulled from the shelves...you can't even get them behind the counters like some cold medicines...nope...just pulled... why?? cause people were not using them responsibily and dying from it...ok..i can buy that...except i looked around... the medicines for colds that people are using to make illigal drugs from are still on the market... you just have to buy them behind the counter now... seems to me that this isn't just something that would hurt the user, but the families of these drug addicts...and the same drug stores sell alcohol... misused could also hurt you, but others also....what about the energy drinks that are now being used and could cause heart attacks... that's right...heart attacks... and oh yea..as your walking out of the drug store, don't forget to pick yourself up a pack of cigarettes....again...not harming only yourself..but those that inhale the second hand smoke... but that's all good... just so you pull off the market the one thing that may help others breath better and live longer... i do feel bad for those that have died while using something that should be saving them..but, they have directions...they have precautions...and warnings... and... i guess it would not get to me so much if the fact was that the same stores that had to pull these off the market weren't selling other things that are just as harmful...or even more harmful...

so that's my gripe this week...

    There is never a good answer when it comes to things like this. I'm sorry this has added another kink to the already long list of frustrations. Hopefully, you will find a solution that doesn't break the bank and that works out better in the end anyhow.
Good luck!!

    Govt regulates way too many things, I think. The albuterol should be fairly inexpensive though and is safer than the epinephrine inhalers.

My pet peeve is that HR (at work) does not want to violate peoples rights by telling them they can't wear perfume so I have to suffer life threatening asthma attacks in order to make a living. What about my rights?

    Albuterol is way better than any OTC. The Doctor visit you should be doing periodically anyhow..

    I hear you Kitty! It seems that when you find a medicine that you like and it works, there is something wrong with it, and they take it away. I had been giving my son the chewable Benydryl, and they pulled that off the shelf too. Now I have to give him the liquid stuff. It was so much easier giving him the chewable pill!

Take care of yourself!
Hugs,

    Sorry to hear you'll have to see a doc to be able to breath! There has to be some way to get your meds for less?? does your state have a family care plan? Maybe you can get a script and get lucky with the $4 meds at Walmart?? I'm clueless when it comes to that..be healthy my friend.. And get back on the team! We NEED you! emoticon

It sounds like you're ready to move on to September. Getting back to center can be hard -- I think I spent most of August doing that -- but it's absolutely worth it. I hope you're able to stay centered and focused throughout the new month!

    It *is* exhausting to be super Kitty - I'm sure!!! Just remember SP shouldn't stress you out - it should be there to help support you! So don't worry about us... take care of you! :)

Glad you might have a chance to get back to 'normal' soon!
