Today I don't know many kids who will do much for a quarter....it takes at least a dollar to motivate the kids over here.
The latest motivation bribe with the boy is:
We will buy you a toy (with in reason ;-) if you pick up ALL THE POOP IN THE YARD!
His response...."Really? OK, I will do it tonight"....
Or we wait for a January thaw.....and wait....and wait....and wait.
(I am still struggling over here with the motivation to do anything ~ other than eat!) I have eaten a ton...I am exercising less...I am in a funk of S.A.D....I know it and I feel bad for my family that has to put up with me when I don't like putting up with myself right now)
It may be time for a break...I really need to take control of happier thoughts, feelings, and move up and out of this dark hole.
