I remember this feeling of hopelessness when I potty-trained the boys. The one where you think that they will never learn to use the toilet and you begin to comfort yourself with thoughts that you’ve never known anybody to go on their honeymoon in diapers so EVENTUALLY it will work itself out. And it does. The boys got it, when I was right on the brink of insanity. lol. I’ve heard girls are supposed to be easier, but I dunno. I’ve been taking the Diva potty for months now. When she first wakes up, before her naps, when she wakes up for naps and when she goes to bed…just to get the process started. But, yesterday she showed a lot of interest in her Nemo underwear so I let her wear them and we did pretty good. We made it from 8am til 5:30pm, before she came in walking like she’d just gotten off a horse and saying, “Mommy, it’s yucky” and pointing at her pants. BUT, the only reason she was going was because I was stopping and taking her. It’s a fluke thing when she actually tells me she has to go and does. Then about 20 mins ago I took her up to sit on the toilet, she didn’t go and then we came downstairs and she made a fabulous little puddle on the kitchen floor.
Note to self: Buy Lysol…..lots of Lysol
Husband is at a second interview today. I wasn’t really thrilled about this new job perspective because the fringe benefits won’t be as good as him working for the county now, but his agency is SHA-DY. Big time. Like, yesterday his boss had the nerve to tell him that he thought he saw him driving around in his work vehicle while he was using vacation time and that he needed to do some explaining about his gas fill-ups, cause he filled up two days before he left and two days after he got back. Hello?!? DumDum! That would be 4 working days and he’s riding around in that vehicle ALL DAY LONG. Besides that, WE WERE OUT OF TOWN. It’s not even possible for him to have seen him. And he has NEVER used his work vehicle for anything other than work. That shit, pisses me off. He goes to work and does his job and stays out of all the county drama, but this asshole always drags him down somehow. There’s a BUNCH more shady shanigans I could tell you about, but it gets my blood boiling and I need to practice my patience.
* Interesting fact of the day *
Celery has negative calories since it actually requires more energy to eat it than it contains. Same with apples.
Guess what I’m stocking up on during my next grocery trip?
