I thought that this was a pretty good article! ~
We had a very very hard couple of weeks here with my youngest daughter. (So I have been reading lots of SP motivation.) PD (precious daughter) has many special needs and one of them, the one that kept us hopping is that she's self injurious.
We are the 7th family she's lived with in 5 years. (she turned 6 last month) Even our Social Worker shakes her head at us. How do we do it?
without these 5 incredibly FUN boys, we'd be burnt out. seriously. These boys give us more than we give them.
So this weekend I crashed from exhaustion. I protected her all night each night from harming herself and slept/died almost 12 hours the rest of the day. Of course that's a lot of up and down because I never get to sleep without someone needing me! LOL! But close enough for me!
I had to stop exercising because it was actually adding stress to my body each time it had to recover. I thought my body would get used to it. nope. So I only met my exercise goal 1 out of 7 days.
And I woke up this morning to a whopping (LOL!!) 1 pound loss and GH (grumpy husband) holding a vase of lime green carnations and a card for me! After all lime green is his favorite color! ROTFLOL!! I guess I can put up with him another 37 years! ;o)
Life is just a chair of bowlies!! Everything unexpected! Especially when you are 56 with 10 children still at home ages 6-12 and our adult son with DS 18, and 2 group home ladies and 3 dogs!
Happy Monday everybody!
Love you ALL
