Another 1.2lbs down! 2.4lbs to get back to last Monday's weight. I so got this!!! :p Helps that most of it is TOTM or sodium weight but still it's got to go!

Had a few more stressful days but I am in control of it now. I am not letting it get me down and I am back to being the family cheerleader. That is where I feel better instead of being sad. :)

I asked for "something wonderful" from each of the boys after school yesterday. The younger one who has been having trouble said he talked to the counselor at school and since he was getting some help outside of school she would talk to the principal about letting him stay in his regular school. I am proud that he thought that was something wonderful. It lets me know that he wants help to fix what is going on.

The older son said that he and another student were caught squirting water at each other during a lab in chemistry class and instead of yelling the teacher (who is usually serious) laughed at them. :)

I love this idea and am really going to try and ask them daily. Even when they are having a bad day. Or I should say especially when they are having a bad day.

Quinn ... sometimes lunch with Mom has to come before your goals. You still did well with everything else.

Amy ... Uh-oh on the daughter bouncing off the walls. I hope she calmed down and got some sleep to wake up in a good mood today for school. ... I love that your scouts wonderful thing was going to scouts. That is too cute! ... Your Halloween story brought a tear to my eye. That is so sweet that they don't remember you being heavy.

Main80 ... Great job on all your goals except that inbox. I have OCD with my inbox. I can't have things in there unless I am actively waiting for something to be done with them or the event that they announce to pass.

Pam ... Work is always good when nobody complains! ;)

Darlene ... Thanks for the hug! What a great reward for your hubby! I personally love Dodge trucks but have recently went from my beloved 01 Ram Quad Cab to an 08 Durango. Still a Dodge but not quite a truck. Have to accomodate the kids and dogs though. LOL

MH ... I don't envy you dating. I never really had to do it. I met my hubby at 15 and married him at 16. I've never looked back.

Mike ... I would have a total meltdown if I had as many computer problems as you do. I spend ALL day at work on a computer and if it didn't work I could absolutely not do my job and I would have a total meltdown.

I'm Doing A Survey... lol
 
Good Morning All!

So, I decided to do some online Christmas shopping this morning, which led to an ongoing "text fight" with my daughter over what qualifies as a Christmas gift. As a mom on a budget, I say that a dorm-size fridge, micro, bedding, etc. qualify as nice Christmas gifts. Daughter, who apparently is not on any sort of budget, says that these are not gifts, but things that I have to buy her anyway. :mad: Frankly, she has had a good income since June and, along with putting money away for college, has bought every single thing that she has wanted from the latest electronics to expensive clothes and jackets. There's nothing left that she hasn't already bought. Other parents that I have spoken to are giving dorm items as gifts, too.

Am I looking at this wrong?? Any opinions?? :confused:

ChibiSub 11-16-2011 03:43 PM

Actually the dorm items you don't HAVE to buy her since she's in college and has money, she could buy those herself. I see them as gifts and good gifts at that since those can get expensive. I would turn to her and ask then what does she want. Maybe give her some dorm gifts and then some gifts that she want? That way you have the best of both worlds?

I am with you. I think the things you listed are great gifts for someone who will be going away to college.

Honestly in the past when my boys got big expensive things we have gotten them bedding & curtains to go along with it. Just because they needed them.

She's a senior; hasn't left yet. I did ask her what she wanted and she said "I want to be surprised." Really?? In other words, she couldn't come up with anything.

I'm still texting her, back and forth. It's hysterical.

ChibiSub 11-16-2011 04:01 PM

At that point, I would tell her you are getting what I decide to get you since you can't even give me ideas. That's what my mom did or she would just give us the money instead. I liked getting stuff that I needed for Christmas, saves me time and money to get it myself, lol.
