I have thought about just taping myself 1 day - then playing it each and every day. I say the same things at the same times. I could then perhaps sit in the kitchen and have a nice leisurely morning and let the tape do all the work? The alternative being my 3 year old NT DS parrot. So good at his parroting skills that he can even say "Jesus DS evil 1" under his breath in a desperate tone that i have almost become superfluous.
I couldn't believe it when I saw this thread, as that is exacty what I say to dh on a regular basis. I am stuck in Groundhog Day.
For me, I only feel better if I get to do at least one different thing a week. Even for just a short time. Most weeks I don't get the chance, but if I can get just half an hour to myself to do something I want to do - even if its just walk around the block without a child attached to me, it does help.
I find I am better in the spring and summer, as I take the chance to go out walking every day, either while the dcs are at school or after they are in bed and it really helps.
Unfortunately, since breaking my ankle in June this year I haven't been walking once and am suffering both mentally and physically as a result (one and a half stone heavier ).
Moosemamma I wish I had a good excuse to put weight on. I just comfort eat chocolate too much. I hope your ankle improves soon.
I decided to drag DD2 to bed about 12.30 under protest and when I got up there I found DD1 still awake too. She'd been pottering around her bedroom so quietly we hadn't heard her. I think I was the first one to sleep last night in our house.
Here's to an earlier night tonight in both households tonight, otherwise I'll have to confess to DD2's teacher again and be greeted by the cat's bum face again.
Oh and my weight gain is mostly down to chocolate comforting eating too, made worse by not being able to walk it off. I don't seem to be able to relax in the evenings until I've had some chocolate.
My ankle is much better and just about fit for me to start walking again. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been the best for encouraging off my backside and out for walks recently. I seem to be having a major willpower failure on both the chocolate and exercise fronts at the moment.
We use that saying lots in our house as the day begins with dd screaming as well.. It's exactly like that isn't it.
We had another bad night as well last night. Made much worse by the fact that we had grandma to stay while we went next door for drinks. Such a rare occurrence that freedom went to my head and got quite drunk! Dealing with dd puking up with raging temp 2 hours after I went to sleep was not fun. She seems to have yet another chest/ear infection combo! Oh joy.. Been stuck on sofa with her all day watching cbeebies trying to keep eyes open. I said to dh earlier that it's just not worth trying to have a life outside of dd's needs.
So in answer to your question, Indigo, yes know what you mean but no clue yet about how to change it..
