What's Up?

Well, I got a little lazy last night and didn't get the Christmas tree put away. I have an artificial tree, the real ones are just too messy, lol. Although the artificial ones aren't the easiest trees to put together and put away.

I've been getting sleepy a lot earlier than usual lately, not sure why that is. I'm just exhausted after about 7:00 in the evening. I need to start working out again, to regain that edge. I keep telling myself, next week, next week, tomorrow, etc. I just need to get to it.

This weather we are having is unreal, it actually feels a lot like Spring, not even close to Winter. I'm beginning to think a big snowfall is just around the corner to bring us all back to reality.

Any tips on getting your son/daughter to bed on time? Well, Nat goes to bed fine, but she keeps getting up, over and over and over again. Sometimes I just have to yell at her, then I feel like an ***. What's a guy to do! It just started recently, maybe about 2 weeks now.

Enough about me, what's up with you?

What's up?!

I took down the outside lights, and decorations last night. Tonight, I'll get the boxes out of the attic for the tree and other stuff. We have a real and fake tree, and while I like the fake tree better, the wife loves the real one. Thank God we have a living room and family room!

I think we'll have it all down by Saturday afternoon, and the house can return to normal.

I've been getting tired earlier for awhile, no clue why, I have been sleeping better lately though, which is a good thing.

Our fridge is dying, time to go look for a new fridge I think.

Ahhhh, sleep. I was in a DEEEEEEEEEEEEEP sleep this morning, since my wife had to nudge me to shut off the alarm. I'm usually pretty good at hearing it go off, but this morning I was just completely out of it.

Speaking of dying (EG's fridge), my 97 Passport is almost done. It keeps stalling when I come to a stop sign or red light. It's embarrassing to be "The Guy" everyone is honking at, when the light turns green, etc. It's been stalling at least once a month for a while now, recently it has been once a week, but I keep feeling it coming almost every time I stop. I'd love to sell it to someone, but on the other hand, I want to ride it until I can't ride it no more! I think I need to get it tuned up, one last time, which I hope to do very soon. If anyone has any ideas what it could be, lemme know!

I took down our outside Christamas decorations too last night since we are supposed to be getting some rain this weekend. Inside was done on Monday. I actually said goodbye to the Christmas stuff when I put the last of it in the attic.

It felt a little like Christmas though yesterday because I got 4 packages delivered! Two were last minute Christmas gifts I bought myself: Hitman Blood Money and the Oliver Stone DVD Collection. Third was a free Fusion razor. OK, no big deal, but it still added to the pile. Fourth thing was Disney tikects for our upcoming vacation late March. That got the family a little excited - we love Disneyworld.

Give your daughter a dose of Nyquil. That'll knock her out LOL!

Seriously though, maybe get her a Wii. If she plays it enough, it just might wear her out and she'll nod off without much fuss : )

My girlfriends daughter is now 14 (we all live together and my GF and I will be getting hitched sometime this year). I miss the days of her being a little kid. I've known her since she was 4 and back then life was easy. I've always dreaded her growing up and now I REALLY know why.

I hate teenagers.

Really, really, really hate teenagers.

And what sucks is that it's just going to get worse, FAR worse, before it gets better (and by better I mean when she has moved out-gone off to college : )

Whats Up!

I've got a solution for the getting out of bed problem. I have a 6 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. My daughter had this problem of continually getting out of bed for every reason under the sun until I finally had enough.


Now this suggestion is only if there isn't anything wrong with your daughter, like being ill, which is causing her to get out of bed. My daughter of course wore that excuse out too at one time so we eventually figured that one out too.

When I had reached my limit with the "getting out of bed" habit, I marched upstairs and asked her a simple question - "Do you like your bed?" She said yes, and then I told her if you like your bed so much why do you keep getting out of it. She said "I dunno". So I then told her that if you keep getting out of your bed at night, that is telling me that you don't want to sleep in it. That being the case, if she gets out of her bed again for anything else than to go to the bathroom to prevent accidents (although we go potty before night-night time...LOL) she will have to start sleeping on the floor. That got her attention for THAT night, but the next night she tested me again. What did I do? I put her on the floor with only a blanket, pillow, and her favorite bear named "Bearly". She of course fussed at me but she knew I gave her a choice and she eventually stopped whining. I felt guilty immediately after leaving her room but held off for about an hour before I went to check on her. When I quietly walked into her room, she was completely under the blanket with no part of her body exposed. She heard me walk through and threw the blanket back and told me she was sorry and that she "...wouldn't get out of bed". Man, how many times have I heard that to this point!! I told her she had to stay on the floor all night and she would get another chance tomorrow. She didn't fuss much more and got back under the blanket - completely. A few hours later before I went to bed, I went back upstairs and checked on her and she was buried under the blanket sound asleep. I felt she learned her lesson so I picked her up and placed her back in her bed for the night - she never woke.

I asked her the next morning how she liked sleeping on the floor and she emphatically said that she did not like it. She said she was afraid of the "creepy crawlies" that might get her so she stayed under the covers and "Bearly" protected her. I asked her if she wanted to start sleeping in her bed again and she shouted "Yes, sir!". Since that night, she has never gotten out of her bed to play around - that has been over a year ago! I will tell you that I was shocked on how effective this was because my daughter is like me in the sense that she is very strong-willed and is often times difficult to rationalize with. Some of you may say rationalizing with a 3-year old is futile, but it really helps if you try when they are young as it will pay dividends when it comes to effective communication when they grow older.

So give this a shot if you can stand it and it may solve your proble too - later!!

I got one of those free Fusion razors myself! No idea how though, I never signed up for it, that I know of.

Yeah, the older they get, the more issues come up. I wish my daughter could stay at around 3 to 5 years old.

haha, now that might work! Not sure if I'll be bold enough to try it, but I'm pretty close! haha. Thanks for the tip!
