    Colorado is still very much on fire. This is the sun, behind all the smoke.

    I've had a really bad evening, and it ended with me dropping my phone without noticing it, and then driving over it with the car. Since I monitor my glucose levels with the phone I realized that I couldn't wait until tomorrow to go and see if it was salvagable, so I scrambled to the only store selling phones that was still open and now I have a new phone. Almost makes me miss those days when glucose monitoring was done with actual drops of blood and a scale that you just judged with your eyes.

    Random cop just knocked on my window and asked if I'm homeless and if I needed anything. I told him about the housing navigator and organizations I work with and that I have a job. He gave me $20 and wished me luck. So, ****ing random and unexpected.

    I will say the one problem with Fire Pro is that there’s no way in hell Matt Borne’s suplex bridge was ever that gorgeous.

    Arrrrg I hate the end of Daylight Saving :( Dreading it.

    Guys I am thinking about approaching my boss to talk about my career path. I would like to become my company's senior project manager and I would like to get my actual project management certification. A course for this might be $1000 and I was wondering if anyone has experience getting your company to pay for CE like this?

    We don't have daylight saving in Queensland, but New South Wales does, which means for six months of the year, boundary street in the city of Coolangatta-Tweed Heads is in two time zones.

    SJ: here in Aus, all courses are paid for by the health service I used to work for; except with a few exceptions, the costs of which you can claim back on tax at the end of the year.

    Here it just depends on the company. My old one had a formal program to apply to have CE paid for. This new one is a lot more casual, so I will just have to ask.

    I need help, my besties. A lot of help. I have gotten a ton of "feedback" on my parenting style in the past 3-4 weeks because I am not pushing any milestones since I stopped working from home. My daughter is stressed, I am stressed, we are just coping. I didn't make my daughter wear something, she got very upset when a family member (an inlaw, all inlaws) insisted, then I am told not to indulge her all the time and just do it even if she screams. This led to discussing milestones I am "too chill about." I am letting her be an underdeveloped brat, essentially. (FYI, daycare agrees with how I am doing things)

    1) No one should be forced to wear something they don't want. No one has to give hugs.
    2) Pushing those milestones FREAKS THE HELL OUT OF HER, that is why she is melting down. You are adding to the stress and making it harder.
    3) OMG, I don't let her get away with everything.
    4) She isn't a ****ing brat, she is 3.
    5) Being genuinely distressed is not a tantrum

    I explain 1-5 over and over and all I get is 'you have to stop her behavior; she is going to be a brat; you can't let her win, etc.' Someone not only brushed me off today but tried to get me to leave while they forced my daughter to do something unnecessary that she didn't want to do. I am sorry, I thought I was her parent.

    I guess I need advice on how to be firmer with them (which is ironic since they say I need to be firmer with the progeny) and reassurance I am in fact, not screwing things up. Or am I screwing things up, and in that case, I need so much help. I have no family here and I don't want family in the US to worry that I am so unhappy over this when they can't do anything, so I have no one to talk to. I can't post anything on facebook because they are there. All of them.

    EDIT: Up to this point, I have had really good relationships with everyone involved. Maybe that makes them freer with their opinions but it is really mucking with me since we were close.

    Help!

    :(

    I have a good tip. Never get angry, never lose control; be strict and patient.
    First and foremost she needs to feel safe and secure with you at all times. If she does, she might not refuse hugs or clothes and stuff.
