I'm actually at work now. Cells need feeding every 2-3 days regardless of holiday schedule. I'm waiting for the media to warm up so I can get this done.
B is going through the reject mommy phase again, but stronger and more extreme this time. I've been trying to take it in stride but it was starting to become hurtful yesterday after a whole day of refusing to hug me, purposefully saying "daddy I love you" "no, not mommy", refusing to let me read him stories, and constantly telling me to "go to work", "go away", "i don't want you". Hopefully it ends soon. Its very hard to keep delivering endless patience and nurturing without any reward.
I've stuck to most of my "reset" plans: no sweets, no playing games on the phone at night, exercising. We gave up the "no booze" after about 10 days. Even 10 days helped, though, I'm back in a more healthy pattern of occasional beer or glass of wine after dinner or with friends, instead of the several drinks every day holiday visiting in-laws mode.
I've been on an on-line shopping kick. I'm trying out new styles and vendors for clothes and shoes. Most everything needs to go back. Having to trek to the post-office to return packages will cure me of the shopping bug, I'm sure.
OK, media should be at a perfect 37 degrees. Time to work.
