What up ladies?
Question: If you are on LinkedIn, do you entertain any and/or all messages you get from recruiters? I have a hard time not engaging unless they give me position details that I know I won't be a fit for. I'm not super unhappy at my current place of employment, so I feel like I should just ignore, but it's hard to not think something better might be out there.
Nothing going on after work/school today. Tman was a pain with his homework last night. His first homework of the school year and it was like torture. I keep telling him that now that he's in middle school, he needs to take responsibility for his own stuff, but then I harp on him. AND now I just remembered that he didn't do a portion of his assignments (he was supposed to write something out and then write an explanation and he didn't write the explanation) and there is no make up work in this class, so immediately he's getting a 50% on this assignment. Ugh. This is going to a struggle this year, I can tell. But I really need to try to let go a little bit and let him make these mistakes. I can't hold his hand forever.
Anyway, I'm feeling fat and unattractive lately. I need to do something about it.
Howdy. I feel fat, too. I've pushed back up to my top weight ever. Just as autumn decides to fall hard in Seattle which always makes me want cozy (read: fatty plumping carby) foods. Scheduled the follow-up sleep doctor appointment for the 19th (the only thing they had earlier was the 12th at 8:15 am and I'm not battling traffic and less sleep for that). Have to call the vet today to find out if anything showed up in Ivan's bloodwork that they did just as a precaution. I'm guessing he just needs food and that's why the weight loss. I think grandma MIL came to visit and gave him treats like Popeye's or Ezell's chicken more frequently than we realized so without that, his regular meals aren't enough calories.
Re: Tman. I know it will kill you, but it may just be time to let him go for a week or two without more than a single reminder a night to do his homework and let him learn that mistake on his own. I'd wait until he's settled and back to school habits, then try it for 1-2 weeks and then check in (so as to not let his grades really tank beyond retrieval).
As for LinkedIn. I don't get recruiter messages so I couldn't answer for sure. One of our friends says to always hustle - so if they contact you, it doesn't hurt to find out more.
I am trying to get though the day. Keep occupied as I wait to pick M up from school. We went to Target with only 2 kids today. It was quiet.
Hugs! Being a SAHM and having your kid go to school is really hard. The first day Tman went to all day pre-K, I pretty much just stared at my phone all day long...knowing that he couldn't make it without me. And he did and that was worse.
