    • I am with P on this one. My heart aches that I can't do anything to make things easier for you.

      My "Program": doing my version of a 4:3 - 3 day fast diet with real food every day, with a little twist of anti-inflammatory mixed in.

      Comment


      • ok.. trying to make good decisions in regards to food until things settle down (I hope they do). I did something for myself last night. I went to the Journey and Night Ranger concert. It was fun!! I was with adults and had adult conversation. I stayed out late. I ate and drank what I like (seriously explains the gas today). It felt GOOD. I felt like MORE than the mom of an ADHD girl child (girls I understand are different than boys). I read an article the other day that was titled: The ADHD mom: the job from hell. Sometimes, I concur.

        So many things need doing today. I am tired from last night BUT I have accomplished some things. I detailed my car. My daughter and my mother tend to turn the car into a pit pretty fast as we usually take my car everywhere. It feels wonderful. I need to remember, a clean detailed car really has a positive input on me emotionally.

        Today I also arranged Lily's clothes for school. Since I can not count on her to be organized and separate her school clothes and play clothes. When I do laundry I will do that and keep her school clothes in my room. I know this seems like a control freak, but mornings are HELL if we are struggling to find appropriate clothes. If I put systems in place, I am thinking the stress level will go down and will lead to other positive progressions.

        I need to mow. Its been warm and to be honest, I do not feel like tackling the heat. Perhaps tomorrow evening. I still have mounds of laundry but I am still methodically plugging away at all the have-to's.

        Just thought I would let you know where I am at <mentally>. I am getting there..

        • Systems are good, what ever it takes to lower morning stress, I am all for it. I used to bribe my kids with tv time. If they were ready on time, they got to watch Rocky and Bullwinkle before while they were eating breakfast. If they were late, they ate breakfast as we walked to school.

          I think that when I start getting the "chores" done it starts to calm my stress. Having the house feel clean and the laundry done, makes things feel put together, and I feel calmer.

          • Yeah, I am starting to feel the "Oh shit, we are all going back to school" stress. I need to work on my systems.

            • I notice that now that mine are gone, I have avoided doing a few of the inside chores because somehow that reminds me the house is basically empty. But now that it has been a couple of weeks, the stress of that stuff not getting done is greater than the stress that they are gone. Today's the day, she'll be crying while she vacuums (there might be a country song in there somewhere)

              • This morning was pretty smooth. With all her school clothes in a controlled organized setting, finding something to wear was "almost" painless. She has been walking out of the house without breakfast (she gets breakfast at kids klub but apparently has not been eating it). Today was better. I bought items she can grab and go-eat in the car, at kids klub etc. This morning was strawberry and cream oatmeal in a Styrofoam cup with a spoon. Nice and disposable and no crumbs in my car.

                • Slept in my contacts Saturday night.. it was one of those, seemed like a good idea at the time.. still paying for it. Eyes hurt, I just want to shut them and keep them closed.. it makes me sleepy to the point no amount of caffeine will help with this one. Glasses for me for a while. It feels like the cornea is scratched a bit.

                  • I just baked a batch of egg "muffins" for DH for lunch. Not sure Lily would eat them, but they were just sautéed veggies, that I tossed with eggs and cheese and a bit of flax meal and tiny bit of flour (I probably could have skipped the flour but the veggies looked too wet), then baked.

                    Had a co-worker years ago who had to go to the doc to get contacts out that she had slept it, they had formed some sort of suction and she could not get them out. Had to wear glasses for quite a while.

                    • yeah.. while I like those. Lily is not much for mix it up non traditional food. Sometimes I can get her to eat scrambled eggs if I make them soft and in butter but other than that, we would not even try it.

                      sleepy sleepy today..UGH! Going to get farm fresh eggs today.

                      • too bad. I have never made breakfast on school days, either cold cereal or homemade breakfast bars or muffins of some sort. Tried hard to discourage eating in the car, just didn't seem like a good habit to get them into, but y'a know life happens.

                        • I hear you about the car..battles and mountains is my only defence. She is slower than molasses during a frigid winter in the AM. I need shortcuts to stay sane.

                            • sorry, I was commiserating, not passing judgements, my kids ate in the car all the time, best laid plans and all. Most definitely need to pick your battles, and this one, in the scheme of things is minutia.

                              • Chris- I did not think you were critical at all.

                                Ruth- I hear ya about the weekend. This week, it can not come soon enough.

                                Ok.. so I lost my BP meds in the move. I kept looking and then used up all the leftover stuff I had. I called the nurse about an RX and was told I had to come in.. it had been a while since he did the whole bp thing etc. By the time I go in, I am not just swollen from retaining water (everywhere), I am in pain. I mean, even my toes hurt.. every joint. My bp med has changed to one I guess is stronger with a better diuretic (my bp was high-ugh!). I am at school today even though I should be home with my feet up. the only shoes I can put on are slippers. Its only Wednesday??!!

                                my breakfast is pretty good: swiss cheese, sliced turkey, baby bells, 1/2 an apple and some carrots- and a diet coke (ya ya)
