Happy almost New Year!!!!!

While I haven't accomplished much (anything?) this year, I have learned a great deal about myself and become more accepting of my limitations (meaning less in denial).

Hugs,

Valerie

Valerie:

Back in the late 80's I lost everything. I honestly came close to being homeless. I had to re-prioritize what was important in my life. What I found out was people who cared about me counted more than anything else. And, I found out how to have good, honest fun with no money. I had fund making things for Christmas from things I found outside--like milkweed pods, pine cones, acorns, etc. What I learned--living life simply was good for me.

Joyfilled,

I congratulate you on training her young. The number of gifts definitely doesn't equal the amount of love or "well-provided-for-ness". My Dad's family gave *all of the kids* one gift (it may have been just one toy-type-gift plus clothes, etc., but with 6 kids, 12-ish years of age distance, and one toy, it would've been a bit lean). And, Dad didn't feel deprived; it was the way it was, and it was fine.

On the other hand, Mom's family tended to do substantial amounts of gifts (despite being fairly poor). And, that spread into my childhood (where the gifts always overflowed from beneath the tree--at least from the time I was old enough to remember). In fact, this year, Granny contacted Mom in November and said that she didn't want to do presents this year. A few weeks later, she contacted her again and said that it just wasn't sitting well with her and asked if they could. Mom had already predicted that she would change her mind. So, clearly this is a complex generations in the making.

Once I could provide "overflowingness" for my family, I did. Although in years where my husband hasn't gotten a bonus, it's meant debt and eating potatoes for the entire month of January. It's amazing how many things you can do with potatoes when they're the only entree you can afford.

Somehow, Christmas excess makes me feel provided for--even though I know that in the long term saving the money would actually lead to being more secure. I think it's a holdover from when we were so poor that we used to have to wash the laundry in the bathtub with dish liquid and could only give token presents (and nothing to our families). I know it's fake security, but it feels real. It's like locking our glass doors. If someone wants in, it'll take them seconds, but it still makes me feel safe when I make sure the door's locked. It's nuts, I know.

Thank God, ds isn't attached to quantity! Maybe it's because he was so young when we truly didn't have enough. Or maybe, he just has more sense--he was appalled the year that I bought myself a $100 Enso clock for Christmas. So, maybe he and his wife (assuming he finds someone) will break the cycle. Of course, since none of the men in my family (husband, dad, son, grandfather, step-grandfather) are/were needy when it comes to gifts, his wife may be just as addicted to excess as I am. One can hope that a) she has more sense than I do and b) that she's not preachy about it.

Hugs,

Valerie

Valerie--Well, today is always a new day and a new start.

Our Christmas is lean compared to many people. We only give our daughter three gifts--Baby Jesus got three gift and so does she. Our daughter is not lacking believe me.

Joyfilled,

I hope you feel better soon. How did the doctor's appt. go?

We've done more shopping than we should've, but that's not really a surprise. We've been tired (not from the shopping; most of that has been online), so Advent prayerfulness has been pretty lean.

Hugs,

Valerie

Hi. It's been a while since I stopped by. I am certain you are busy getting ready for Christmas. Thought I'd just say that I am struggling with pain and sure would appreciate any prayers.

Joyfilled,

I'm sure they'll love them! Much of our Christmas shopping will be waiting till after the 15th (dh gets his bonus then). But, I've bought some things from Amazon's lightning deals, and we've done a lot of window shopping.

Hugs,

Valerie

Thank you for stopping by. I still have to finish making my Christmas gifts. I am making my sister, nieces (all grown) and MIL a pamper basket each. I am making them olive oil soap, bath salts, facial scrub, facial mask and moisturizer. They all have everything they need. So I thought this might be something they'd like.

My shoulder is bothering me a lot this week. I think it's the damp, rainy weather. So I am giving it a lot of TLC.

Yesterday was nice. Dh and I spent the evening shopping and went out for a nice dinner. Today, though, I have a killer headache. So far, I've taken Tylenol, Sudafed, and an antihistamine. The headache let up some, but still hasn't gone away.

How's your shoulder doing?

Hugs,

Valerie

You're welcome; I'm not sure if I was helpful, though. He's 21, and he still tried to slip out after only doing 1 out of 2 cat pans today.

Joyfilled,

Aside from being sleepy and allergic, I'm pretty well.

Unfortunately, there isn't a magic wand that makes kids want to help--or, if there is, I haven't found it. DS21 still has to be pressured to assist around the house. The most effective thing for him has been a list and being told that he needs to finish that list before he can go elsewhere. After missing an outing or two or three or four, he realized we meant it, and he started getting the work done (or done-ish, there still might've been dust bunnies under the furniture and in the corners of a "vacuumed" room). The other thing that helps immensely is spousal support. Right about the time he'd see me dialing his father at work, he'd manage to find the cat pan and dishwasher (not necessarily in that order!).

Hugs,

Valerie

How us everyone doing. I am struggling with my children not being willing to help me out around the house.

My doctor wants me to do every little and the children want to do nothing to help me.

Hi friends:

Hope this is a great week for you. I am trying to clean the house one-armed. It's not easy. But I sure am laughing a lot at myself.

Joyfilled,

I wish I had wonderful, sound advice that would cure her homework issues. If she's not getting it done, then I'd recommend that she work on it in a family space (dining room, living room, somewhere else you can prod her). Alone in my room, almost anything would've trumped homework.

If she's doing it, but not getting it turned in, I'd recommend a three ring notebook with folders for each subject--with you making sure that things are in their appropriate pockets before she leaves.

It stinks that in both scenarios, you wind up being partly responsible for job. But, until she develops "big girl" skills, it is what it is. I'm 41, and--in areas where I haven't developed a system--I still have trouble.

The other thing I would suggest (and I mean this in a totally non-creepy way) is that she develop the art of being charming (if she hasn't already learned it as a coping skill). Teachers are far more willing to allow for what I would kindly term "eccentricities" if they understand that you like them and know your stuff. That means chatting with them, maintaining an open line of communication if something is going to be late, helping when needed (I used to do filing for my geometry teacher and grading for my government teacher), and being an all around pleasant sort. Some people would call it sucking up. I'd call it being friendly. I'd also call it self-preservation.

All-in-all, I'd recommend that she play to her strengths. If she tests well, she should still do homework, but she should really focus on studying for the tests. If she's friendly, then she should make sure it would break her teacher's heart to give her a lousy grade. If they like her, extra credit projects will often materialize.

Hugs,

Valerie

Valerie, What a wonderful surprise to hear from you. I honestly feel so attached to you, Barb and Terri. Whenever any of you post I feel just like I am hearing from a family member.

I am sorry to hear about your sugar. Please take good care of my friend Valerie. I want here for a very long time.

Valerie, do you have any suggestion about how I can handle my bright one who hates studying & doing homework?

Joyfilled,

I was like that as a kid. College fit my personality better, but I still "underachieved" because of homework issues. I can't count the number of breaks teachers (both before and during college) gave me because I participated in class, knew the material, tested well, etc.

Glad the weight is coming off. My blood sugar went up, and my husband got more serious about making sure that we ate more diabetic-friendly meals, snacks, etc. (He does most of the cooking.) So, I've taken off a few pounds, too. The Paleo diet does wonderful things for my health, but I get bored and tend to go off the rails pretty quickly.

Hugs,

Valerie

WooHoo, it's finally Friday. This has been a busy week.

Yesterday I spent a lot of time at Parent-Teacher Conferences. My youngest has a high IQ but has a low interest for studying and doing homework. She can walk from her desk to the teacher's desk and loose her homework. She is a challenge.

I am eating a lot more veggie and finally losing weight. The Paleo Diet was something I wanted to get into. However, it is very expensive and after researching, I have found that the Mediterranean is best for my health needs. Plus, it will not cost a lot of money.

My surgery is done and it went well. However, it is painful and I cannot use any pain medicine. Believe me, Motrin & extra-strength Tylenol just don't cut the pain. But I have to keep going on. My normal pattern is not sleep until I get so tired that I fall a sleep for a few hours. I am not at my best these days. Very sensitive and crabby emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just a reminder . . . and assuming it's volunteer: unless you love doing it, you could make "last minute" inconvenient a few times, and they *might* change their ways ;-)

Good afternoon team! Sharjoy I hope you are getting your infection under control.

I have been tackling housework and laundry the last couple days and throwing in a little work on the front yard so I can plant the fall mums and pansies soon.

Hi CountryBarb 05, sounds like you're doing great. What kind of dog do you have?

I am still under the weather plus very dizzy when I move around today. Sure hope tomorrow I feel much better.

Hope you all enjoy this day! I am so glad Ralwine & Countrybarb05 are here with us!

Today I am working on my weekly menu. If I write down what we'll eat for the week it saves lots of money...I go by what's on sale & coupons I have.

Thanks Sharjoy! I hope to be here more now that all the summertime activities have wound down. Thanks for all you do to try to keep this team alive!

I had a great time yesterday at the gourd festival. The last several years we have been successful in attracting the Purple Martins to the houses and gourds we have put up for them. I really enjoy watching them as well as the hummingbirds. The little hummingbirds are really hitting our feeders now.
