The Love dare Day 0

So tomorrow, i start the Love dare. It's a program to make promises to yourself and your spouse to treat each other with love and respect. each day is a new dare that you carry out thru the forty days and beyond.

the first dare is Love is Patient.

This hits home, with a crazy household, raising two toddlers, and trying to make a barely there budget work. i can relate at how many times i have lost my temper with him, myself my kids, just life in general. It says that patience isn't just not snapping at whoever has crossed you, but a deep breath, a fresh start. its better if you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all(thanks bambi)

i tell you what, i know we have room to grow in our marriage, and we definatly have to be a team to survive my little monkeys(monsters) so, here we go.

i Dare myself to be Patient all day tomorrow not only with my husband but with myself as well.

isn't it amazing how songs attach themselves to memories? i've been going through old Cd's tonight and being blasted into the past.

i lost a friend today, to an overdose so they say. we weren't very very close recently, as she had moved out of state for a while, but she was over with her daugther the other day, i lent her money for groceries, so she could feed her lil girl. down on her luck. poor hunni. go figure things were looking up.

breaks my heart. but finding all this music from shows we used to attend together is bitter sweet

oh elliot how i love thee.

Zen and the art of....

getting your kids to sit still for more than an 1/8th of a meal

we've tryed extra snacks, sticker rewards, praising, pleading, distracting with toys, making their absolute favorite,

and my kids wont sit still for beans, which let me tell you, makes for fun outings, we've given up going anywhere for meals. which saves a bit of money, but darn it , sometimes i just don't wanna clean the mess up.

do any of you lovley bloggers out there have ANY ideas on how to keep the monkeys at the table. we've tried everything from time outs to early bed times, to extra special treats after if they do sit, the most they'll do is about 5 minutes. and then they wanna go go go go go.
