Going to beat this!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I am strong willed and stubborn. I can't help but wonder sometimes if I am not getting back what I dished out as a child... in the form of my strong willed little girls. But I would rather raise strong willed and bright little girls into strong willed and bright women. I want them to be successful in life, and to not let life get them down. I want the best for them.

But raising two strong willed stubborn little girls... is hard work! V did fairly well in school yesterday. She did argue with the teacher, and wound up on red. I am hoping today is a good day. She didn't sleep well last night (and neither did I because she was up so much), but I did send a note in with her so her teacher would be aware. I also suspect she is coming down with an ear infection, and I am treating it (she has had her fair share of ear infections in her lifetime - the tubes fell out over the summer, and I am hoping she won't need them again). V's teacher sent home a folder FULL of work that V missed last week. Did she call me and let me know that the folder was there at any point in the week? Nah. Did she e-mail me? Nah. Did she send any work home with V's older sister whose classroom is right around the corner from hers? Nah. She just piled it all in a folder and sent it home yesterday.


So V and I spent an hour and a half sitting at the table working on her missed school work. Do I mind helping her with it? No. I just wish I would have had it sooner because I made her practice writing her letters and numbers every day when she was at my work with me while she was suspended from school. I should just look at it as extra practice right?!?

DQ had dance yesterday. Have I told you how much I love to watch this child dance. It comes naturally to her. She has a talent. I love these little girls.

M went to help my dad dig a sewage ditch yesterday when I got off work. So the evening was just the girls and I. I sadly... Didn't get my 5K practice done because I was helping both girls with homework, cooking dinner, and spending time with the girls. DQ has been reading us a chapter book, one chapter at a time as a bedtime story. Junie B. Jones; Dumb Bunny. She loves to read, is good at it, and V loves to listen to her. It's a nice break from my story telling, and good practice for DQ. When M got home he was soaking wet (it was raining while they dug) and a muddy mess. I helped him get himself cleaned up, then sat down to do the hand stitching on my corset. I'm nearly 1/2 way done with the hand stitching part, then I can start on the boning channels.

I didn't get much to eat yesterday. Poor planning on my part, and being so busy at work. My job is very demanding at the end and beginning of the month.

I have so much to do for my class reunion this Saturday... and I have to drive 45 minutes south on Thursday when DQ gets out of dance to pick up my Color Run Bib. Why do I do this to myself. LOL.

My back pain today is around a 4. I'm not trying to complain about it - just a heads up. I am trying to keep a written record of it, so I can look back and see where I have come. I didn't sleep with any towels or pillows last night, and slept mostly on my back. I am so much more comfortable on my side, so that is half the battle. Thank you all for your suggestions! I am trying to find something that works for me!!

    You are a lovely, devoted mama. I'm sure you'll get everything done in time for your reunion. I can't wait to see your finished corset!

    My sister was handful growing up and my Mother always said "You'll get yours". Well, she did, she got a daughter just like her. Glad the back pain was a little better. Hope you find what works for you! emoticon emoticon

    Sometimes I wonder what goes through these teachers minds last year my teenage son just decided it was easier to not do his work and take a zero for it .. well I got a call and the teacher said he has 53 missing assignments between all his classes REALLY ?? and they let it go this long before saying anything to me ?? ugh. Glad your back pain is a little better hope you can find something that works and get some relief soon. Have a good week emoticon
