Oops. I knew that, Jan! It was the hour, maybe. Sorry! Thanks again.
The kids just have a four day weekend. I am vague, aren't I?
I think that I roughly follow my priorities but, am dedicated to the ones I like best. I think people have addictive personalities. Obvious sometimes, but generally we get hooked on certain things. I do have friends that are hooked on having a really clean house, or an obnoxiously perfect yard. I think it's lovely but not for me, my pet-peeve is (sadly)chaotic disorganization. When I can no longer function because of visual confusion, I tidy. A maid would be Great but, would also encourage my self indulgences (addictions.) I tell myself that to feel better!
Is soul-searching an indulgence or an over-looked (ignored)priority?
That's funny Michelle, and possibly a good job niche.
I always said I was going to start a business scraping taste buds off. Hey, if people will go under the knife for other things and inject poison into their faces, I may be on to something.
Well I tried to "Pure" grocery shop. I am now back to near tears in the grocery store. I remember why I stopped trying; so I could just get through the #!* chore. I did discover the products I have been using are amoung the better ones. I have to tweak a couple of areas. Which doesn't feel so overwhelming anymore, Thanks jAn. I think I can get there, and quite soon!
Here is one philosophy that covers both house-keeping and natural living. Becoming a minimalist? That is my approach to living. Buy reusable items. Buy quality items so that they last, in small appliances and in furniture as well. Don't buy it! Is it really going to affect the quality of your life? With clothing, if I have so much that I don't wear things often, then I have too much. And, I don't need anything new, even if the colors and styles are beautiful. I am better than that!
We got results from speech pathology tests for my son today. She concluded that his problem was within his processing memory. Interestingly, this is the same conclusion I had drawn from reading Mel Levine's book, "A Mind At A Time."
She also said he did not need ADD drugs/and wasn't showing any indication that he should be tested for this. I guess there are ADD clinics for testing, by the way, a doc. should Not make a judgement call.
She is also trying to get accommodations for my son as she thinks the fine print says that the psyc. testing 'isn't' mandatory!
It is scary how easy it is to be victimized by the professional community.
Stand up for what you believe is good and proper, moms!
