Ah but poo is just squished up food smile. It's nothing odd or unnatural. We all do it!

So far today is going smoothly! I even raced to get a special origami order of 100 peace doves to the post office by their 6pm cut-off and all the lights were green in my favor, and there was no line at all. The Peace Gods are with me today smile

I may go an entire day without complaining, and with a smile!

LOL. But would you want to eat this squished up food? Food is edible. Poo is smelly and bacteria-ridden. Wait, that could also be said of some types of cheese.

See, exactly Lori, it's all how you think about it. And apparently mommy dogs do eat the poo to keep their babies clean. So it's a natural part of life.

Your puppy will grow out of it, and then you won't have to worry about it any more!

It's nearly the end of the day and I haven't complained once. Hurrah! One day at a time!

My no-complain-project yesterday *almost* made it through a day! I was fine until the very end. I was fine through Game of Thrones. Then there was only watching Castle, and bed. It was all the food commercials during Castle which did me in, I finally complained about them smile Yes we were on a DVR but I still had to see them while fast-forwarding. They were causing unnecessary, bizarre cravings smile

Today is a fresh start!

I have achieved Day 2 of my no-complaining project! Yesterday was a victory! Bob fast-forwarded through commercials for me, to hep out smile It turns out the "triggers" for the past three days had all been food / thirst related, so I am being more attentive about those things. So we'll see how Day 2 goes! So far so good smile

Last night, I complained--big time--to my kids about leaving piles of dirty laundry in their rooms. They are adults. I am willing to do their laundry. All I ask is that they bring it downstairs.

It is very disheartening to think I have the house pulled together only to go upstairs to see piles of dirty laundry. ugh.

We have discussed this with them over and over and over again. My son believes he is far too busy with work to deal with this. Really? He comes downstairs every day. Can't he bring his laundry? I'd settle for him throwing it over the banister!

My daughter is home all day with me and she spends a lot of time in her bedroom. How can she live with all that dirty laundry?

Uh no. Now I've gone and complained in this forum.

I keep telling my husband that if I keep doing what I'm doing, I'll keep getting what I'm getting. Something needs to change or nothing will change.

What are my options? Kicking them out? Not an option. Having them do their own laundry? Tried that and they'll keep piling it up.

HELP!

No complaining project - now on 3rd sequential day. Should be a beautiful day of daffodils and sunshine! Enjoying my morning kiwi shake.

Lori -

I agree that your current method doesn't seem like it's working. People don't tend to react well to "punishment" styles of motivation. It doesn't stick enough.

If their laundry is in their own rooms, I say you make them close their doors. Their rooms are their domains. Those are the only areas they control. It is their one refuge. Their one sanctuary. Treat it as a separate country. They need to keep their doors closed on their country. The rest of your house is the way you want it. You can even put a fun sign on their door saying it's their own country smile.

Let their country be the way they want it to be - it's the only space that is wholly theirs.
