thUrSdaYs arE foR beiNG a mOmMy!

   Mr. Cancan and I have been taking Love and Logic classes for the last two weeks, to appease LW's mom. I wasn't super excited about taking this class since it is 3 hours every Wednesday for 4 weeks. Uhg! I knew I would be interested once I got there, but it's just hard to want to leave the house to take a class I didn't volunteer to take. The class is pretty great, though.
   Being the sarcastic person that I am, I'm really having fun with Love and Logic. When one of the kids does something wrong, I get to say, "Uh oh. It's so sad. So and so has to go to their room until they're ready to be sweet." I don't think it's meant to be sarcastic, but it feels that way when I say it, and it makes me happy.
   I really am just having fun learning how to be firm with my kids without having to feel angry. A lot of the techniques are ones that I've already used, but it's given me the tools that I've been missing to be a better, more calm, more collected mom. It gives us more time to have fun together as a family. My favorite thing!

   Gosh darn it, I ran out of Youngevity before the next shipment came in. Since I will have been off of it for a little more than a week before I'll get more, I'll have to start over. I would like to share though, I really am noticing a difference.
   I've been battling a migraine since Sunday. It came on suddenly and strongly. I hadn't had one in weeks and was so happy! On Monday, I had Mr. Cancan take me to the E.R. so I could be treated. They gave me what they call a migraine cocktail. It works wonders. I felt great when I woke up the next day, but by evening, the migraine was back. I decided to take the last bit of Tangy Tangerine and Glucogen. I felt so much better within minutes. Unfortunately, since I ran out, I haven't been able to keep treating the migraine with Youngevity. The migraine isn't horrible, but it is persistent. I can't wait for my next shipment to start feeling better.
