Support Group Time:
What do you do when you just can't argue with someone? Walk away? Try again later? Get help?
I'm doing my best to keep calm but having troubles. Constantly criticizing my Kid. Me and my parenting skills. How I pay bills (hey, at least **I** pay them!). So much ... and it's really frustrating to never ever hear "you're doing a good job with this" or that or whatever.
Frustrating. Nope, that doesn't begin to cover it.
I saw Jenny McCarthy on the View last week (was it her or someone else on another show?). Whoever. She said when she broke up with her last ... guy ... that she made a list of all of the faults she saw in him. HE did this. HE didn't do this. Etc. Then after he left, she changed the list to read SHE instead of HE, and it was quite an eye opened.
Something to think about. Something I'm working on. Why does it tick me off so much that Hubby's so critical of my Kid when my Kid can't help it? Just one of many questions I'm working on.
Hubby has a lot of the next 2 weeks off. Has to use up vacation time .. use it or lose it. So tensions will be running high. I'm working on how to keep my Kid out of Hubby's hair while he's home, but meanwhile, I'm going to give it my best to NOT overeat. And to NOT go back to thinking about food and snacks and chocolate ... every second of every day! I'm losing again, and want to keep it that way.
Anyway, if my posting these last two weeks of 2010 is sporadic, you'll understand why. I just can't get on the computer and be free to type whatever without the possibility of someone reading over my shoulder.
Have a good weekend, all!
Oh yeah, remember, I need to know ... what do YOU do when you just can't argue with someone? What are your techniques to avoid it escalating?
Puzzling over a title - As I worked on my "instant meals" / "healthy homemade MREs" book this week, I realized I am still very unsure as to what title to use. The companion blog i...
