It's already November. I cannot believe we're here already. I feel like we should be in April! Not ready for the snow either.
I'm getting frustrated here this week. I've been pretty much maintaining these past couple of weeks. Going up or down within a pound. Usually after a couple of weeks, it'll start moving again. So maybe next week will be the week. We'll see.
It has been a rough week over all. I have been trying to study for my final test for my certification, work was crazy this week, and my son isn't doing what he needs to do in school. He's a smart kid, he's just being lazy. We had parent teacher conferences and his teachers are frustrated as well. We know he can do it, he just doesn't want to. So I've been sitting with him every night making sure he's getting his homework done, which takes away from my time to work out, get things done around the house and to study myself. I've tried studying when he does his homework, but he is a talker and I cannot concentrate! Thursday and Friday I didn't work out, so I made them up this morning. Whew!
Another thing is, my son brought up about he thinks we don't love him. I asked him about it, and he mentioned about us taking away his electronics and Legos. So I made it clear again that they were taken away because he's not doing what he needs to do in school. Then he brought up that he never gets to see dad. My husband and I work different shifts so that one of us can be here with him at all times. But when school is in, he doesn't get to see him save for a few minutes before he gets on the bus in the morning and then on the weekends. So then I had to talk to my husband about this, and he does not like to communicate or discuss things. And I had to deal with all of that. So my husband said he would take the next dayshift opening so that we could all be home together at night and he's going to take him out somewhere on the weekends. I am a person that does not do well with change, so that I'm sure will be a bit stressful as well. But I will survive!
Tomorrow I'm going to take what I like to call a strike day. I just do whatever I feel like doing for the whole day. Whatever makes me happy, read a book, watch TV, take a nice long bath, sleep in, play games. I will get my exercise and strength training in though, I always feel good after exercising! Now I've got to get the rest of my errands done for the day so that I can relax tomorrow!
