    Ha, ha. Isn't it funny how that works out? Well they're very lucky to have you around, but you make sure you take of yourself too. Hugs.

    The best you can do is learn to look past it now and again, and thoroughly enjoy the time you have together. If you're lucky enough to ever train them to help, let me know how you did it!

an angel poem

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I keep this poem close by so it gives me strength!!

I believe in Angels
that they're always
hovering near,
Whispering encouragement
whenever clouds appear,
Protecting us from danger
and showing us the way,
Performing little miracles
within our lives each day...

May you all have your angels!!

    LOL.....I took a pair of scissors to my yellow pages ('cause who uses them any more anyway?) and clipped out every single display ad for a handyman, painter, carpenter, plumber, etc. When I have a job I want done, I grab one of the ads and stick it up on the refrigerator with a magnet. He ALWAYS asks..."What's this for?", and then I tell him how I'm going to make an appointment and spend money, to have a particular task done. He takes down the ad, and shows me just how good a handyman, painter, carpenter, plumber, etc. he can be.....and saves money too! I figure since we don't pay a professional chef, shopper, or cleaning person, we're even!

    I TOTALLY understand! We have so many unopened boxes of things requiring assembly that I could probably sell them now as "vintage" items.

I recall a story of some woman who needed a crib fixed for the forthcoming new baby. Her husband was always helping neighbors, but never got to the things she wanted done. So she took the crib to a neighbor who called the husband to ask for help fixing a crib. The crib got fixed!

    The hubs sounds perfectly normal to me ! LOL !!!

I have a good "method" to get him to do something you want. Let's say you want to paint the cabinets. You go out and buy the pain and let it sit for a while while the hubs decides when he wants to start painting. Well, once some time has passed, YOU start painting !!

I assure you, the minute he sees you painting, he'll say,"stop that, you're doing it wrong. let me do it !" works all the time !!!

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Shameful but,TRUE!I cannot buy anymore because,The monster comes out in me and I cant control her!It's about my only weakness but still its like I go in a trance and after 2-3 kisses Im like Animal from the muppet show!!!LOL,but on the serious side it's like the old me is trying to fight with the new me and I know a part of moving forward is to leave the bad habits behind!I am going to learn on my way what sets me off.I'm doing fabulously and i'm so,so proud of myself.I's just scary not to be in control...Yall might think this gal is a few cards short of a full deck and I probably am.But,my best solution for now is to leave the kisses in the store,until i'm stronger in my choices emoticon

    Excellent idea to leave the temptations at the store, at least then if you really do have to have some, you could make yourself walk to that store and burn off those calories before you eat them!!!!

Well done, great choice.

    I don't think you're any cards short of a full deck. I think you'd be nuts if you DIDN'T love, love, love Hershey's kisses. You're lucky if it's the ONLY thing that brings out the Animal in you. I can't worry about demons or lack of self-control, just how to keep my calories right. For now that means leave them at the store. Good choice!

    I am the same way with chips. They are a trigger and it is almost like a drug at times.

    Hersey's Kiss addict ? ME TOO !

And how is this is a bad thing ? LOL !!! People think I'm a raving lunatic now ? Take away my portion of chocolate for the day and see what happens !! Although, I did give up chocolate for Lent and didn't die. So, yes, it is possible to live life without chocolate. But who wants to live life without chocolate ??? Moderation, not deprivation.

    Good for you for recognizing what your triggers are and simply staying away from them. This is all part of the process and I'm proud of you too for all of your success so far :)

    My daughter decided recently to become a nurse as well (she is 19). It took only six months of working full time at wal-wart for her to decide that maybe she needed to go to college. God bless the people that work at wal-mart, it is a hard job!

    Good for her! I am a nurse and it is one of the most rewarding jobs, knowing that I make a difference in people's lives! I wish her the best of luck. It is worth all the blood, sweat, tears and missed sleep!

    Fantastic! I know that you are proud and relieved
Know that your daughter will have a skill that will keep her in demand the rest of her life!

I am an RN, and part of the reason I did it was for the mobility it provided. I could get a job nearly anywhere in the country. After I graduated Nursing School in Michigan, we moved to Texas and I started working right away as a graduate nurse. Took my board exams here in Texas and passed with no trouble! Good luck to your daughter!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I know how happy you must be. Been there myself (wayyyy back) and with a son. Sometimes you can try to persuade til you're blue in the face, but it takes reality to snap someone into motion. That's when real focus sets in and chances of success are greatest. (I've also observed this as an educator.) This is wonderful news!
