  1. I'm not sure what it means where you are but since it clearly doesn't mean what it means here, I'm pretty sure I can fill in the blanks...
  2. Likewise with Qbert. He would prefer we did the cooking together (although he actually prefers I just do all the work while he talks).
  3. Thanks. She looks fiesty.
  4. Yeah, that does not work for moms and daughters. Peach likes that she can do things on her own and views getting help from me as a failure.
  5. It's awesome when kids learn that moms are cool too.
  6. maybe you need a free time to do list? but it's more like a wish list so it doesn't sound like it's a chore. ETA: The weather here is strange too. We had a couple of 70 degree days early in the week. Last night we had a thunderstorm that turned into snow.
  7. Week 2 Day 4 Junk Food (+/- 2) 0 Diet Soda (+/- 5) +1 Wake Up (+/- 7am) +1 Training (+/- 10units) 2 Family (+/- 3) 2 I managed to get some time to spend with LS and the kids. I had some silly time with Peach, then Qbert joined us. We do have a rule in the house - No on, I repeat, No one is allowed to give mom a wet willy. I do not think they are funny (when done to me). Evidently Peach forgot this rule. It's not like 'you are grounded' in trouble, but it's not like haha that was funny' either. There will be payback and you won't like it. After the wet willy incident I enlisted LS for some back up. After the kids left we had some time on our own. I was hoping to 'accidentally' fall asleep and get a nap in but that didn't happen. But Peach, worried about having offended me and the impending payback, decided to make me dinner. She surprised me with a dinner in bed, burnt grilled cheese with bacon, a peanut butter banana yogurt sundae, a blueberry smoothie, and since she knows I like to have veggies with dinner, a small dish of baby carrots. My planned menu was zoodles with a hearty ragu. It barely has any calories at all. This dinner on the other hand, was loaded with carbs, and butter, and cheese. But when an 11 year old brings you a burnt grilled cheese that she made herself (and burned her finger making it) you EAT IT. It was very sweet and I let her off the hook. The important thing here is that she has been reminded of the rule. The dinner left me unsatisfied though so I snacked later on some cereal and some cheese and crackers. I am not counting them as junk food. I could have picked much worse things to eat. I did manage to get some training done. I got the Darebee daily dare done and some other BW work done. I didn't get to any school work until late so I didn't get as much done as I intended.
  8. It's not a very productive state of being. The calm overrides the sense of urgency.
  9. Aced and pampered your cat.
  10. I'm pretty sure this never goes away. LS is in his 40's and never seems to tire of these jokes... Although, he does prefer a good "That's what she said" joke over a poo joke.
  11. That's a tough spot to be in. The wheels of beaurocracy move too slowly for normal humans. This is easier said than done but it's probably best to not fret about something that isn't concrete and sounds like it is just as likely not going to turn into anything but to also just be frugal for the time being as a precautionary measure. But regardless, I'm sorry you have to suffer through this.
  12. Agreed.
  13. Does it make sense to have a sense of calm AND be completely overwhelmed at the same time?? I'm prepping my tasks for the weekend and the task list seems lighter than normal since I don't have that many class times to prep for and assignments. A sense of calm.... After midterms is spring break and then an extra week off where all I have to do is write up the project assignments and make them do all the work....more calm.... But wait - I have 3 midterms to write in a week!! WTF did I do?! ...Overwhelmed.
  14. As long as we have enough money leftover for our Doodlie DREAM gym.
  15. YASS! You can do this... and now we'll just have to invade your house for real. or we could buy that castle.
