Hello reader and welcome to my blog! I’m back to saving blog posts for later because not saving ended up in me not reading, but in order to not overwhelm myself, I’m saving 1 letter a day. Yesterday I saved all the blog posts of the blogs that start with letter F, for example. Today I will save the blog posts of blogs that start with G. This way I’m checking each blog I follow and unfollowing those who haven’t posted in more than 3 months.
But that’s not what I wanted to talk to you about. I woke up yesterday with a sore throat, and it got worse today. I realized it’s because I kept eating junk food. My body is begging me to cut down on junk food. My throat burns everytime I eat chocolate. So today I didn’t have chocolate. I don’t know how long I’ll last. I think I just may go back to bed so I don’t think about it.
But that’s not what I wanted to talk about either. I keep getting distracted. I want to talk about my son. I’m still struggling with waking him up (morning routine) and with after school routine and with the bedtime routine, but less than before. I’m no longer turning into the raging hulk when he won’t listen. Instead, I sympathize. I tell him “I know you’re tired. I’m tired too. I wish I could just stay asleep all bundled up but I have to take you to school”. It took a lot of coaxing and a little yelling, but as soon as I said ” Show me how you can get dressed ninja speed”, he got dressed all by himself in 2 minutes. So I guess my point is to find what your kid likes and work from that angle. My son has been into ninjas lately. He drew ninjas on all his things and made a ninja brand for himself.
I decided to go back to bed after taking my son to school since I don’t have much to do besides reading
and finishing the design course on coursera that I’m avoiding because I have to do two 45 minute long tests on my laptop to finish the course.
Plus I’m feeling sick. It could be an allergy. I took allergy medicine but I only feel 20% better. I’ve been sleeping more lately and not exercising. I think it’s because of the cold. I love rain as much as I love sunshine but I don’t do well with cold and wind.
I’m still riding the happy train, though. At least in terms of feeling content with my husband and son. My friendships need a little work. I either need to fix some friendships or make new ones. Which one is easier?
Also, I’ve been reading from The dance of anger and it has some great insights. I won’t mention them yet because I’m getting sleepy. Plus, I plan on writing a summary/review of the book when I finish it. It’s a great book!
For now, I’ll leave you with this (I might come back and edit this post later). My son went to school happy and in style. Wish I could show you pictures. And I took a picture of an acorn in a tree. I was inspired by nature.
