I worked up the enthusiasm to read it.

I can summarize the important one​s one for you......... motivational tip #3 was "Do less"


I finally worked up the energy to skim it. The " Do Less" did pop out at me, along with buy & read books and sign up for a computer motivation! Will need a lot of motivation to read Motivational books!

OK. Today's goal:

bathe


I think that is an excellent and achievable goal! It can be made more fun with the addition of bath oils, champagne, and a hunky man.

Well, hunky man has a job, but he did get me a bathmat for Christmas (Em - Will has a challenger for most romantic gift-giver!) so I can use the oils without risk of bodily harm.

I try not to overly dwell on this, or overburden you guys with it, but thought that almost two years on you might be interested in the state of our city.

Happy New year Dear Friend,

Sorry this reply is late. I've been offline for a while but I was touched by the attachment and hope you know that you and those living in the devastated area who have suffered losses) and this goes out to anyone touched by tragedy (natural or not) are in my thoughts and prayers continually.

I have always found 13 to be a lucky number for me and believe in my heart and (aching) bones that 2013 is going to be a better year for all of us. I've been watching a lot of inspirational TV and reading books and truly feel I was saved for a reason. I need to help others. I am anxious to get back to work with my Selia but I also want to do more. I still also need to build my immunity and strength. It does help. If anyone out there EVER needs to let it go I'm here for all of you. It's the absolute least i can offer to the very people who have been here for me.

Love & Hugz,
Loey

Jeez, hopin' that your sched keeps you around your kids a lot, Rahshyellle.... :)


Here's the dilemma: Current schedule is 5 days a week, 630a-230p. I'm home every day after school even when I don't have them overnight. I never go more than 2 days without seeing them and I'm there to work with Max on his reading and other homework-which his dad does not do.

They want me to move back to working 3 12's. I have the kids every Monday and Tuesday so I would work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This would mean I'd NEVER see them Wed/Thurs and then every other Frid-Sun. If I calculate it out over a year, taking into account school breaks and summers, I end up averaging MUCH more hours with them over the year with this schedule, BUT I'd have to go 5 days every other week without seeing them. #1-I'm not sure I can do that. #2-Max NEEDS the consistancy of what he's been getting with his schoolwork. He's struggling enough as it is and if there are 2 days that I'm not there and his dad doesn't do ANYTHING with him, then he suffers...

What are your opinions? I've plead my case, I've begged like you wouldn't believe and I've prayed and prayed on it. I have to leave it in God's hands and make the best of whatever I'm given. This is hard ^_^

Man, that is a dilemma! Since Jesse won't help Max with homework, any chance of cooperation in getting him some tutoring help after school? (for the days when you can't be there). Is work totally immovable / not budging on what they 'want' you to do? i.e., are they insisting :o ? Just shows to go you, NEVAH go on vacation !! You don't know what they'll hatch while you're gone :rolleyes: Sometimes you're lucky if they'll even take you back :ph34r: says she who knows whereof she speaks.

I'm so sorry about your situation. How many hours would Jess have to work with him? I'm going to be saying lot of prayers that you find a solution that gives Max the consistency (and you the peace of mind) you worked so hard to get. Also, how well does Jess work with Max? Again, I'll rack my feeble mind around it but the bottom line that you stated is true: Max needs the consistency. I just know that something will work out. You've never ceased to amaze me yet and I doubt you ever will!
Extra Love,

Seriously?? After a vacation? I've been here for almost 13 years and my supervisor is trying to figure out a way to make it work. As far as the tutoring goes, if they end up making me do 12's, then I will try to work something out with my sister at least one day a week to work with him. He'd have to go to after school care on the days that I work and they don't have anyone there to work with him. I'm guessing I will hear something by the end of the week.

Thank you :wub:
I work with Max for about 2 hours a day on reading and math. Jesse won't even read with him. Jesse had them all last weekend and they didn't pick up a book once. I can guarantee he watched about 8 hour of TV each day though. <_<
