PEACE

All day my girls have been arguing or fighting. It is so frustrating. They are both at fault actually. Rosa has no patients and Veda is the text book little sister who LOVES to bother her big sister. Time outs barely work. I need a refresher on parenting 4 and 7 year olds. I'm catching my self just getting frustrated and raising my voice..a lot. I don't like this. At the same time Rosa can totally tune me out and Veda just LOVES begin defiant at times. Anyway, I'm going to break out some parenting books I have around out. Positive parenting is what I'm aiming for here.
I know it can't all be " rainbows and sausages" ha ha but really I would like it to be a bit smoother.
Me and my running mates have decided to change the half marathon were running. We found out you can have NO MUSIC in the one we wanted to do. ??NO music? Are they crazy. How the heck am I supposed to run 13+ miles in SILENCE??? ACK. So we found another one that does allow personal music devices. YEHAW ! It is 3 weeks later but that is fine. Gives me 3 more weeks to train. I have taken a few days off to get my tattoo worked on again. So I'm hoping to be back running by Tuesday..
Speaking of Tuesday, I also go in to get a filling. I am SO disappointed that I have a small cavity.. I HATE going to the dentist..who does though. While I appreciated what they do for me, it isn't ever fun. So I'm really just wanting Tuesday to be over.
My next sewing project ( besides the pants I keep sewing) is going to be a cute grocery bag! I'm trying to decide between oil cloth and fabric...? Not sure yet.

Sorry the kids are fighting. I also tend to yell a bit too much. But Gianna and Richie have some fighting matches at times. About the running, most races I have done don't allow ipods but most people take them anyways. Unless it's like a major race ING NY or Boston. I don't think they really care.They just have to say no ipods for safety sake. Hope you get your tunes.Happy trails. :)

Oh the fighting. Please share with me your resolution :) Isabella and Abigial are fighting like crazy lately.
I was also going to say most races say no ipods and everyone brings them anyway. I ran the River Run with my ipod.
I am not usually a fan of dogs either LOL or any pets for that matter really. I do love him to pieces now that we have him though.
