I have carpal tunnel in both hands and some mornings it is really a pain! I'm pretty good this morning...just slightly numb on the right hand. Need to catch up on home school stuff today though with our dentist appt and haircuts yesterday we didn't get as much done as we needed. The color challenge colors will be a true challenge for me this week....I'm not usually a brights kinda gal.

I like thunderstorms , but not when they're close enough that I think it's safer to power off the computers . My aunt had her network card fried a month back after a nearby lightning storm.
Gloom I don't like!! I hope you get some brightness and light too.

good morning
cold and foggy here so far. I slept horribly last night, lots of weird dreams. So I've been awake since a little after 5. At least I had time to put on my makeup uninterrupted. Kids are now up and we'll be getting ready for school. THen after I take the youngest to school I'll swing by DH's office and trade out cars so he can pick them up from school.

I'd like to get crafty after work but I'm thinking with everyone home and being my first day of newness I might be a little preoccupied.

Good morning ladies! The sun's shining at my house and I'm hoping to get outside later and rake up MORE leaves! They are never ending! Before that I'm going to check out the crafting items on HSN. I've yet to buy anything but I enjoy it when they focus on crafting things (non sewing - I don't sew - just scrapbook and stamp).

I hope everyone has a great day! I kind of thought the prizes had all been awarded but I'm wrong....I, too, wonder when the next drawings will be!

Please share the sun!! It's gloomy grey here - but maybe we can be grateful that so far it's the warmest November for years. Warm is relative...

I often have weird, vivid dreams. I think it's caused by medication, even though it's something I've been taking for years.

Sometimes they are scary dreams. Most of the time, they are just everyday life dreams about work (even though I was laid off two years ago) or family (often with my now 24-year-old son around age 5 or 6).

Now and then they are the kind of dreams I wish I didn't have to awake from--like the one I had early this morning, right before my son woke me for a ride to school.

I had to go back and do a little light reading since I left yesterday.

I would prefer a 0% chance of rain this weekend. I have a two day craft sale here in San Diego this weekend...so...nope...no rain this weekend. I'm hoping it doesn't rain till after Feb...get me at least past Valentines day and I can take a few weekends off.

Hope it is soon...I could use a little sunshine today....my kids are just so mean to each other and we can't seem to get through a school day without ugly comments to and about each other. I'm sitting here in tears so discouraged.

Yep, the ability we have to use words makes our "fights" so much uglier and can leave wounds that last. I guess if they were in school they'd be picking on the other kids in their class just as they're picking on their "classmates" here at home. I think that's what bothers me most is that this is their siblings, you know, flesh and blood that they're supposed to LOVE!!!!
I need a good dose of my older children to give me hope that these younger ones will come to love each other well again. Looking forward to Thanksgiving break (at least the part that isn't the 26 hours we'll spend together in the van!)

They will - you don't understand that till you're older. I read this great book called "Play" that explains how fighting establishes your instincts as an adult - it teaches you how to judge when you've gone too far, and the difference between joking and hurting, etc. It's really fascinating. They're just learning how to be civilized adults by being uncivilized kids. Don't be sad.

Here's the book: http://amzn.to/tOLwIb

Thanks all! The book sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing. Gotta run do some work while they're away. When does the fun of prizes start up again?

Ha Ha...king of the towel. cute! Yeah...mine are 4yrs apart...they were never that close but the younger one is always doing his own thing and the older one is trying to be closer...so maybe one day. My favorite is tell them to tell each other "you're probably right". They don't have to believe it...and it's not a lie...that way the fight is over and the one that thinks they're right can still think they're right.
