Finding peace after grumpiness and anger

4th of July was a disaster. She was soooo grumpy and whiny, and she didn’t enjoy it at all. It was so discouraging. :( It’s so hard for me to deal with her grumpiness and anger. I’m not sure if its normal or not.
Today she had a bad morning with her dad while I was at work, but in the afternoon, we kept it mellow. We did a science project in which we made a salt time, and I helped her to manage her frustration when it didn’t work right. Later we went swimming which we loved, and she even went into the hot tub with me a little bit. She played and watched videos on the computer while I graded papers. She took 81 photographs of two of her toy cats and then we made a slide show.

not doing too well

I’m not doing too well on this yet. I downloaded a timer, but I have many important legitimate things to do on the internet. I’m not sure how to set up a distinction between what is helpful and productive and life enhancing vs. what is a waste of my time.

3 weeks down

I’ve been doing my exercise plan for three weeks now. There’s no change in my weight, and I still have my flab. I don’t think it’s making a difference with the chronic pain I have at night.

But … I do have more ENERGY for sure. I can now make it through most of the day without feeling like I have to pass out, and the fogginess is lifting. This is really wonderful!

Art Collage

Today we made an art collage with shapes. Didn’t do much else. I allowed her to play on the computer a lot. It’s okay. Tonight we’ll go to our friends to see fireworks.

Energy!

Energy… Oh elusive energy! I’ve been a a low-energy person all my life. Now in my mid-thirties after 5 years of motherhood it’s hitting hard. Sometimes (maybe most of the time) I can barely get through the day. I’m not overweight (just a little tummy fat), but I’m not fit. For the past 3 weeks, I’ve been exercising on most days of the week. 30 minutes of step aerobics in front of the TV, and 30 minutes of yoga. Within a week, I started to feel that I had way more energy. I’m hoping to have major results by the end of the summer, and that this will become a lifelong habit, so that I won’t be too tired to achieve my dreams.

friendship

my daughter started to connect with another child her age. It looked like the beginning of a friendship. This has never happened before even though she’s already 5. it was wondeful to see.

pool time

I enjoyed swimming with her at the pool. A bright happy smile. She started to want to learn to swim without floats.

internet timer

perhaps I should set a timer, and limit myself to one hour per day. Perhaps I can set this up on my computer.

43 things is an interesting idea. I just discovered it, but so far, it’s not helping me with the abovementioned goal



set some goals.
Untitled

at 36, I’ve already set and achieved so many goals. I think I’ve done all the important ones. What else is there now?
