Giving your environment(as well as YOU) a little shake up is always good for renewing your enthusiasm!! It's so easy to get into a rut, in any job really, but with dc being so draining, thankless and stressful, it's a very easy job to get burned out with. Keeping it new, finding ways to relieve the stress and taking care of yourself are all ways to return to a better mindset. Glad you like it again!!

Annalee Today is my Friday! Since my own children have been in school, I take all school days and they close for "fair day" tomorrow. Nope, not going to the fair with my kids as they are older now, but I am still taking the day off. Don't go backwards with the contract/policy, right? This is one of those days I would always get tired of all kids showing up while their parent took older siblings to the fair so I fixed that problem. LOL

Cat Herder *Looking over medical articles as a refresher. Casually looked down at the comments on an article about life as a resident then I find this comment from someone named Jon Schwartz and my day has been made. Thank you, Jon Schwartz, you have won the internet today and my heart forever.

"When progressives have no response to a problem they have caused, they always retreat to what they think is the moral high grown of 'science'. Obviously, like most things, progressives have no deeper understanding of science than what they are taught on the fake news networks and by their Marxist tenured professors. They have no understanding of how science has been hijacked for political purposes, only that it is always infallible as long as it 'proves' and reinforces the ideology. Check out Lysenkoism. Progressives have absolutely no understanding of the manipulation and false promise of statistics yet in their superficial world, as long as the conclusion follows the orthodoxy, it is 'science'. This profound inability to get to the core root of a problem and see the big picture is pathognomonic of progressivism and explains why EVERY progressive policy ends in death, poverty, and destruction. What a malignant theology."

Annalee Last week, when we began preschool, uhmmm, not so good with participation!

But this week, two days in, and we are on a roll. It was fun! So maybe we are back in the groove!

Ironically, we have all 12 this week. I think the kids are better when EVERYONE is here!

Annalee Well, my company has left! Time to get my new "preschool"
year up and going. I open back up Wednesday! Usually I'm on top of everything but have to admit I have procrastinated this year Some of the displays I ordered haven't even shipped yet. Oh well, I am still excited about Wednesday. But am so tired today. Got an extra day to prepare so hopefully it will all come together.

That is AWESOME! I have noticed alot of "doing things together as family" commercials on TV lately. I was raised in the "family-time" generation but I am afraid my own sons only see family-time as the "odd" thing to do instead of the "normal" thing to do.

Annalee I think I've posted many of the latest post on "what is good" lately, but trying to re-group myself and control some things I can control. As I stated in other threads, it's not just Daycare issues that overtake me, but things within my own extended family and my immediate home.

Over the past few weeks, EVERY evening, my oldest and I ( he is my best worker but has a job plus school)have been cleaning out the basement. I am embarrassed to say how long this has been needed. DH father passed in 2003 and he lived in another state so we Uhauled all his stuff back to our basement. Yes 2003, but it was the kind of things where "will I use this" "I hate to get rid of this", etc.

Thankfully, we are down to a small truck load for the dump. It had to be done. I felt the best I have felt in a long time yesterday. Makes me want to do more around the house.

Carpet removal is planned for the Spring with new flooring and tile for my kitchen. We built this house 25 years ago when we married, but it is TIME!

So the moral of the story is, Get to work and "fix" what you can because it's the "little things" that make the difference. No one else may notice, but I know within myself what I've accomplished.
08-11-2019 06:30 PM
Annalee It is good to know that my nephews and niece from my brother and their divorced mother are doing so wonderful. I find it refreshing for young adults to become responsible persons despite their "supposedly adult parents ". Kids and young people don't stress me near like "adults" do within my own family circle.

Annalee Got my school shopping finished today. Only a three day work week next week for a long weekend before school starts the following week. So thankful for my sons' gracious attitudes. I found some good deals as it was tax free weekend here as well. They will use the same backpacks as last year. They are awesome at taking care of their stuff. This has been a process but I do see some progress from years of "training" and "praying" for these little fellas! I know the verdict is out on their futures but I am happy right now....today!
07-18-2019 12:57 PM
CountryRoads My weekend begins at 5:30 today! Closed daycare tomorrow so my own kids can have me all to themselves. I'm so excited to spend the day with them tomorrow

Wish I would've took a couple more days this summer to spend time with them...it goes too fast.

Josiegirl Fun day with my 2 former dcgs who are sisters! Sweetest kiddos and extra precocious, both of them.
Just doing some fun stuff with them but do need at least a 30 minute break; getting them to let me have that is a challenge.

I received a $100 gift card from Lakeshore a few months ago, and honestly, I can't even remember how I got it. I think it was from a health department class I took, but there was no note in the envelope. Mystery...
06-19-2019 02:38 AM
Josiegirl Nobody has had anything good happen for awhile so I thought I'd add my $.02.
My yard sale is this weekend and I've had a few people I know, already come and take things. Last night a provider(my dd's bf's mom) came and emptied half my playroom!!! She told me I should've been a 5 Star program. lol
She had a truck and filled it up to overflowing. And needs to come back to pick up more I've saved for her. Still so much stuff left.
06-07-2019 05:26 AM
Ac114 DCM works for bath and body works corporate. She is always bringing me candles, lotions, soaps etc. which I very much appreciate. I asked her if she could get me a 150 gift card (she gets 50% off) for Victoria secret. She shows up yesterday and says just think of this as a little bonus for taking such great care of my boys. She is seriously the best DCM!

CeridwenLynne Sometimes itís the little things that matter. Yesterday of my kids parents took me aside when he picked his child up and told me how much he appreciated me and all that I do not only for his child but for the whole class. For me, a little word of thank you or a note of appreciation means more than a gift.

Annalee Off the rest of the week!

Gonna take in some NCAA tournament, getting a physical tomorrow and some outside work done on this beautiful weekend!

So needed this break to re-group and rest my mind....re-licensing along with life itself has been overwhelming for me the past few months...so much going on that drains me mentally and emotionally.

This forum is so great for all of us as I think life-happenings have attacked us all lately in some form. to all!!!!

03-11-2019 02:42 PM
Josiegirl I needed to get my dog into the vet today and didn't have any clue what to do. So I sent a text to the 2 dcms I had during that time frame and asked them if they'd be able to come to my house and be with their kiddos for less than an hour while I took her to the vet. They were both very happy to do it.
These are 2 of the best dcms ever!!

Msdunny I officially open on Monday, and just had a part-time mom call. She was only going to bring her LO 2 afternoons and 1 full day. She asked if I had an opening on another full day.

This is so exciting for me, because they felt that I wasn't asking enough and they offered to pay me more. I will have this LO the least amount of time during the week, but she is paying more than my other part-timers.

I am so ready for Monday!!
01-03-2019 10:25 AM
Josiegirl A new 2 yo dcb started today; 3 days a week. And he did really well!! No previous group care experience at all so I was a bit nervous. The mom seemed truly happy about it all and relieved. Keep fingers crossed he'll stay until preschool(they already told me that's their plan)or until I retire.

Cat Herder Amazon first reads for prime is giving away two e-books this month instead of just one. Granted, I already love that they give one free per month.

The baby enjoyed it and smiled, putting her head on me and just being happy and listening and it really pleased the mom. I get so much negativity from parents or general thanks but nothing significant like" thanks for reading to my child. That's makes me happy. "That sentence alone made my day ��

Annalee Told my boys (ages 15 and 17) not to get me up before 6 this morning and they were good about that But then we open presents and I am the one still up cooking while all are back in bed Wouldn't have it any other way! When they were small they would get up much earlier. I am happy they still love the excitement of Christmas morning. Many wonderful memories!

No matter how challenging and difficult you can find your own little ones some days, enjoy their place in your lives every single minute that you can. It flies by in the blink of an eye.

Josiegirl Walking out the door this morning, it's not quite 5 a.m., and it's been snowing that gorgeous white sticky snow that clings to everything. I live on a hill near lots of trees and a big field by a farm 2 doors up from me. I have a crab apple tree in my front yard, a tall pine and a tall maple tree in my backyard. The beauty of nature sometimes simply astounds me. It puts me in awe and makes me feel like I'm in a Thomas Kinkade painting.

Phew, glad that's over with!!
My licenser came today, too, for a quarterly unannounced visit. (I get quarterly visits per year since I have the max stars...no stars get 6 visits per year. She scheduled my annual re-evalution for my license renewal paperwork/stars documentation for February(my license ends annually in April). I like her lots as well, but the mere reminder that the QRIS assessment is near comes so soon it seems each year. I so long for the day to "just" do daycare.....

sharlan I just washed the very last of the Thanksgiving dishes.

Most got washed Thursday night. I left for Mom's early Friday and got home last yesterday afternoon.

I just went out back to water and found the turkey roaster on the patio. Oops!

BrynleeJean After two weeks with new DCB we are finally getting on a schedule and our days are going so much smoother!
nap times and feeding times are falling in line within a half hour of schedule and because of this DCBs crying is down to the minutes before the bottle is warmed or while he is getting comfy in his crib!
couldn't be happier!

Cat Herder The weather was perfect today and none of my neighbors set anything on fire to keep us from enjoying it for the entire outdoor playtime.

Rockgirl We have a great routine going on here lately. After being in a bit of a funk the last few months, Iím really enjoying daycare again.

Amazing! So glad you found pain relief; sounds like you felt miserable.

BrynleeJean I went on my first walk today with my DC kids (one really, and my own two)
its tough because i have one of my own that 3 months and the DCK is 5 months so their schedules clash and little DKB is still adjusting but finally got out there.
He was happy the whole time and we walked for almost 30 mins! saw decorations, i got to talk to my two year old about the decorations and halloween and just breathe, it was really really nice.
