So Annie is off school all this week due to conferences, and Emma only has school tue and wed. Already they are driving me crazy! Don't get me wrong, I love my girls, but lately they are FIGHTING constantly and I am seriously fed up! Today I have introduced a new consequence: fining them 2 sillybands apiece when they fight. We'll see how it works. But really, by 9:30 this morning I was ready to lock myself in my room....
We did go on a hike to a sandbar today which was fun. They didn't fight the whole time, which was great. It seems like they only fight when we are hanging around the house. Maybe they are bored. But sometimes I just need to get things done around the house, you know? I wish they could just play together nicely. I think part of it is the age difference. I think it would also help if they didn't have to share a room. But alas, we cannot afford a bigger place. So I guess we will all just have to deal.
I have been thinking alot about my eating disorder recovery lately (as a few of you might have noticed from some rather lengthy comments on your blogs). When I get up the energy I will post about it. So stay tuned for that.
