We made it in time at least. Now at work.
Veggie takeaway! Treat yourself :-)
Lately I'm also struggling with eating healthy and cooking meals. I'm trying to get back into it because I've felt awful after all the crap junk food I've consumed, but it is hard. When I cook, it usually last 2-3 days, so that helps. But you have to
cook for more than one person, so you also have to cook more often and I totally understand reluctance. Can you make your daughter help?
I've been struggling with this too. Had a pretty good routine for a while, but it kind of fell apart. Keep telling myself that this time of year is especially hard, and I can start again after the first of the year.
Jeff, procrastination is my middle name 😉
John, good idea but not much so much to choose from. I live outside a very small town.
Lydia, My daughter is very picky with food so we usually cook two different meals every day. Makes this even harder. Sometimes she wants to help but most of times not.
Thanks for all comments and hugs
I used to too, Kristin. I moved back to the city last December and take all the choices for granted. It's really multi-cultural here so there's foods from all over the world.
I'd gladly join you to hibernate. 😴
Thanks Lydia, we just need to find a good lair/dwelling
Also being nice and happy without not much me-time was hard.
I love being home. I love my little family. I love my cats. I love a hot bath and fire in the stove.
I love my socks and comfy clothes. I love my bed. I love not being around strange people.
I mean strangers
Its nice but everyone is so much older than me. And I think I am old...
Here's to a good week for all of us Pandas
Had a good day at the mall with her today. ❤️
Being a parent is hard I'm not looking forward to when my daughter is older and can be verbally mean to me :/ I hope your ok
Thanks Crystal. Yeah I am ok now, its just sad when I missed her all day and just want to do something nice with her and she gets all bossy and rude for no reason. She is only eight yet so I guess it will get worse when her hormones start to kick in.
I heard 8 and 9 can be so hard, and being a parent is one of the hardest things in the world. You've done amazingly to get this far. Is there anyone you can talk to about your child? I think you and your child deserve support... Bless you
I think children are the most testing of relationships. Hugs
Thanks Binky. Well I am not alone in this, her father (my hb) is also here but I am the one to get her to and from school since he has to travel every day for work. If it gets out of hand I know where to turn I guess.
But in the heat of the moment it is hard to stay focused and not react with emotions and anger.
And sometimes I miss life before child, it was so much easier then. Not this much conflicts and drain of energy.
I can't imagine how much patience is required! I'm glad you have your hubby for support :) do you have any other children?
It's good you have your partner for support!! Being a parent is so draining 😩 I'd imagine it's hormones though
Only one Binky, thought it was enough.
Yeah Crystal. Cant imagine how if would be to be a single parent. But even harder I guess.
My mum was a single parent and she was so stressed I'd imagine it's terribly hard being a single parent
