So C thanks for the blog info, even if I am the only one reading what I write, it's fun and a good outlet.
Tonight began a little rough. Ok we are back on schedule and my son comes home with this sassy little mouth and I think to myself...geez one day he's back at school and he comes home full of piss and vinegar..(an old old term). So I look at him and tell him keep it up mister and you will be spending time alone in your room. Actually it's usually me spending time alone in the bathroom because I can never get him into his room (he's a big solid boy), and so I do as my mother had done, lock myself away while he cries outside the door and begs me to come out. But not tonight, I sent him to his room and he knew by the big stink eye I was giving him that he better not mess around. So I gave him a five minute time out and then I pulled a good one on him. I told him if he didn't show me some respect I would be contacting Mrs. Franklin (his teacher) and telling her that I don't care how many pesos he has earned he will not be allowed to go to the swim party. His mouth dropped open, his eyes huge, "No Mama please don't tell Mrs. Franklin" and in that moment I thought "AHA, I have it, his weak spot". Trust me I will be pulling the Mrs. Franklin card on a regular basis. He's obviously concerned by what she thinks, the threat of an email to her will get him right back in line. Mission accomplished.
You have to do what works. This I am learning.
Tonight on my quest for fitness I attempted the jump rope and nearly brought on cardiac arrest. Granted I tend to over do things a bit and jumped 100 times (no not consecutively) but pretty close to non stop, a few breaths here and there and wow, I'm amazed I remembered how to. I do remember someone telling me that it is a really good calorie burner and hey I believe it because I was doing that thing I hate doing...sweating. Hopefully I'll be able to walk tomorrow.
I did read at lunch today and will be reading shortly. I have to get that book done, my neighbor is waiting on me to go see that movie...what is this her third time. or fourth? Not sure. She's also re-reading the book and will probably beat me. It is starting to move along quicker though.
What is this, my legs are tightening already? Oh oh the jump rope workout is kicking in. I'll be in trouble tomorrow.
