While doing my usual morning read of the blogs, Karen mentioned how Laurie rode her bike in honor of a fallen soldier. What an amazing story, I went over and read the post at her blog and had tears running down my face. Please go over there and read it, it's just a wonderful example of how so many people stand behind the troops and support them no matter what their believes are towards the President or the War. Here is a link to the local news story too.
It's so easy to get caught up with the day to day and forget that the soldiers are still over in Iraq and working against all odds to do what they are TOLD to. See, I think that is where a lot of people get confused. They have this idea that the soldiers chose to go there out of their own will, when in fact they are just following orders. So next time you decide to point a finger at someone think carefully and make sure you know all the facts.
On to something else. RAIN!!! Yeah you heard me, RAIN that won't go away. It's been raining since last night, and it's not that hard rain, it's that constant drizzling that gets so annoying after a while. It's not cold, it's actually 47 degrees BUT the weather is pitiful. I have to run to the commissary for some WIC checks and I'm just not looking forward to leaving the house.
Curt took Jasmine to her dentist appointment this morning. I had called yesterday to be sure that she could still be seen even though she has the strep throat. The dentist said it's fine, as long as she is not running a fever and has been on antibiotics for a while and generally feels well. She's GOOD TO GO!!!
So I was watching tv the other night and came across "SuperNanny". Hmmm, ok, well I don't even know where to start. I've tried the whole punishment thing with the coming down to their level, giving a warning and putting them in the naughty corner. At my house we have the WALL....yeah the dreaded wall. If they don't listen and continuously misbehave then they get to put their noses up against the wall.
Does it always work? NO!!!
Do I threaten them with the wall every chance I get? YES!!!
Do I follow through all the time? NO!!!
See a pattern here??? Something's definitely got to give. Unfortunately I know who's to blame. ME, there I said it, wow that feels not so great LOL
Alright so I've decided that I have to stick to my guns, even if I think they are going to hate me for making them stand up agains the wall. Oh well, a little bit of grief now will mean a lot of happiness later, or something to that effect.
Well it's 10:30 am and I've put off going out of the house for as long as I could. I really need to get going. What do I have to look forward to today? Going through all my INS paperwork, rechecking it, finish filling it in, get everything notarized and ready to be sent out.
Hope you all have a great day, I'm feeling like I'm coming down with a cold, so I'm about to go drink a HUGE glass of orange juice. Will see you all back here later :)
