I am normally constantly zing zing zinging around the house. But today I just feel lazy. I think I'm dreading my next 4 days. I have to drive in to town Mon-Thur this week. It is minimum 45 minutes 1 way. So, I've been surfing the net, laying on the couch, surfing the net, did dishes, surfed the net, listening to The Ellen (talk) Show while surfing the net..... get the picture?
I hate feeling lazy....
BTW, I wouldn't mind the drive if it were my job and I had a paycheck to show for it- but it's all weird stuff I have to do all that driving for....
Anyone else having a slow day??????
OH yeah... and I've been counting the hours all day. I have to leave in 1 hour 45 minutes. I have my VCR set for 7th Heaven and Raymond. I will not miss my shows. That's a laugh in itself. I don't EVER sit and watch them. Joan says she gets tired just watching me. I have to record all my shows (even when I'm home) because it takes me all day to watch just one.... zing zing zinging is hard work!
But funny- I can stand all day and decorate cakes. No short attention span there!!
Ok Dawn.... it is time to slow down!!!!!
Get some rest & be lazy!! You deserve it~
hmmm...my day wasn't exactly lazy, I just didn't want to do it if it needed to be done! I did a couple of things if that counts. Helped design post cards for my friend's girl scout troops camp this year, but that probably doesn't count as we did this all via the internet. Oh, I did make myself a toasted cheese sandwich as hubby was out most of the day. Everybody deserves a "lazy day" once in a while!
man oh man, is that me! i didn't do nothing today. my hubby went off to work and my kids went to school. it's just me and my two dogs. didn't clean, didn't do any cakes, just laid on the couch watching t.v. if i had a cake to do that would have been great. that's the one thing i need when i'm feeling down.
btw-i love seventh heaven and raymond too!!
Tomorrow is going to be my lazy day! I am not doing anything... oops..
I put a job application in at the Brookshires bakery today... I can't believe I did that! Wish me luck. If I get it, it will only be till July. I'll be starting drivers training for driving school buses. Bus drivers are in big demand! They make $50 a day here which is really good! If I like the bakery (IF I GET THE JOB) I might stick w/ it too & do both jobs. I'll be doing 2 things that I love, driving & baking~
Diane I feel for you girl! My hubby is military & so was my dad so I've been in the military all my life! I know what your going through. My friend moved to England nearly 2 years ago
If you ask people here in Rhein main all of your days posted here is a kick in the pants, a right down party hardy day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I sit and clean, keep my 4 yr old busy when he needs help doing that, laundry etc etc! I got to the point that how much can I clean. So i shedule my days persay to do something every day so I have time to slack....and now that I have found cakecentral, I find I spend a majority of my day on here.... today I have to go to the commissary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd rather be here on cc!!!!!!!
Here's my opinion (which is not meant to offend anyone)
It can depend on the child, or also the parents. My son's terrible 2's was short lived. When my son started his terrible 2's, I taught him how to calm down by taking big breaths with him and counting up to 20 and back down with him. Also when he would say "Nooooooo!" in a loud and rude manner- I told him that it was not necessary to say no like that, and told him to simply state "No thank you"- What's nice about this is you are teaching your child calming techniques for the future and you are also teaching them how to count I believe in discipline, whether it means reasoning with the child or actual some type of physical punishment- either way the child should learn something from the experience. Because of this style and my husband's belief in this as well, our son does pretty good. He still has his moments since he is a boy, but over all he is well behaved.
Some children are difficult no matter what happens, but just show them lots and lots of love and be patient. (Something I tell myself all the time since I can sometimes have patience issues. I think- calm down Kristen, take a big breath, count to 5)
Feels like they last forever. My oldest terrible two lasted till she was about three and 1/2 and then became manageable. My 2 1/2 is right in the middle of them and I dont see them going away anytime soon. She is far worse then the first.
How long do they last? It depends on the child. I have one child (boy) that barely even noticed a terrible two's day. He was great and a joy. I have another boy that is 22 and still in his terrible twos! They were both raised with the same values and methods. What works for one may or may not work for another. I rarely had to discipline one. For the other, no price was to high.
Teaching manners and all is great... but not all kids really want to know.
You're lucky Mouse, and you may be lucky with them all.... but don't go into it blind.
Thanks cali4dawn, I'll keep your suggestion in mind.
My oldest (boy) will be 18 in May... Sorry folks he's still going through his terrible 2's!!!!!! Just be patient w/ your kids & don't be afraid to punish them about there bad behavior. Your the parent their the kid.. remember that.. AND DON'T FEED THEM TOO MUCH CAKE
I am sitting here biting my nails after reading the "how long will the terrible twos last. I am the mother of 19month old twin girls that have already dived head first into the terrrible twos. And to the astonishment of their father and I, they have mastered the art of coordinating their behavior so there is always one giving us a run for our money....all joking aside, they seem to grow up too fast so we are taking it one day at a time.
I hear the terrible twos will be over by the age of 21, so you will do fine!
Bless you!!!!!!! I have three boys, 13, 7, 4 and I am wondering when they are going to get over the terrible twos..........
