What a start for a 2 weeks holiday… I woke up at 8 am, made for my daughter (Iida) something to eat, and got my coffee and sat down to continue working on my 70-90pages project. And as I start writing, my PC turns off 3 times for no reason at all. I have just got it back from the guy that does the fixing and checking of my PC! I got so mad and thought of just looking out maybe the bright sunny day will cheer me up, but of course with my luck, it’s dusty outside, no sun, and no rain to bring the dust down. I was so angry and upset by then.

It was 9:30 am when I went and woke up my husband. Asked him if he want to come with me to get my friend’s birthday card and Iida’s friends’ birthday gifts? Any way he needed to go with my brother-in-law to get few stuff for the restaurant close to the place I was planning to go to get the stuff I wanted.

We left at 10 something and went straight to me brother-in-law’s that I haven’t seen for few months… I did miss him, he is such a sweet heart (a strange kind of a sweet heart) but still he is a good brother and a wonderful friend! As soon I saw him I started bothering him as usual, asking him questions that made him so out of his mind and just want to turn and hit me in the car. 😀

We did our shopping and were done by 11:30am. We drove my Brother-in-law home and I promised to go and see him at work tonight and I saw the agony in his face and I just smiled!

So after that we went to Pizza Hut and had a lunch, small salad for me, big salad for my husband, chicken wings, chicken dippers and a children meal (small pizza)… The food wasn’t bad but nothing special… But what made me so upset is the bill £18 (CYP) that’s about $41.30 (1 CYP = 0.66 KWD)!!! I think that is crazy for such a small meal!

Well now I’m at home planning to continue work on my project that talks about hairdressing’s history. And hoping to find something to wear for tonight in my full closet that has nothing to wear in it! I hope the rest of the day goes a bit smoother and I’ll in the mood for party tonight.

  2. Hi Nora. I just wanted to commen on your previous post about your little girl. I just wanted to let you know that it’s perfectly normal for children at this age to act that way. I’m not married and I don’t have kids but I see my nephews going through it all the time. I hope this might help…here:

    Social and Emotional Development of 7 year olds:

    -desires to be perfect and is quite self-critical
    -worries more; may have low self-confidence
    -tends to complain; has strong emotional reactions
    -understands the difference between right and wrong
    -takes direction well; needs punishment only rarely
    -avoids and withdraws from adults
    -is a better loser and less likely to place blame
    -waits for her turn in activities
    -starts to feel guilt and shame

    Here are some tips:

    -This is a time of fragile self-esteem, so offer frequent encouragement and positive feedback.
    -Help ease the tendency for self-criticism by stressing what he’s learned rather than how the final product looks.
    -Be patient and understanding of volatile emotions and moods.
    -Take advantage of his eagerness to learn by asking open-ended, thought-provoking questions, doing puzzles, and playing thinking games.
    -Initiate discussions about right vs. wrong.
    -Provide opportunities for independent decision-making.

    Sometimes punishment doesnt work all the time, you need to know why she’s acting that way and try to punish only when it’s necessary but put into consideration the new developments she’s going through at that age. Hope that was helpful 😉

  3. Emmi: It’s working kind of ok now. And I hope you get over the flu before coming here, so it won’t spoil your holidays. 😉

    Missy: Thank you dear. 🙂 I have a great mother that helps and advices. I did do the things you advised at first, but when I saw nothing was working I used the grounding method. We are not allowed to hit the children here in Europe so it’s never gets there! The good news the grounding worked and I’ll be posting soon about it!
