There's Hope In the Teen World!

Not too much to chat about today. No scrap lo's. How sad! Mojo is not here for some reason. I'm excited about some kits that I've got available to me. I'm just not in the stinkin' mood! And that never happens...well, hardly ever!

My kiddies are 16 months apart and have always been very close until probably high school. It's been a rough go as far as that because I'm so used to them being close, and it was killing me to see them fighting. Until yesterday because one of ds's friends said something to him that dd didn't like. She told him not to talk to her brother like that. The friend said, "But you talk to him like that." And she said, "Yeah. I'm his sister. You're not allowed to." She told him he could just leave if he didn't feel like apologizing to her brother. Now the friend is a good kid, and he apologized. A little while later, ds texts his sister, "I love you sister."

So it's true. The foundation is there. There may be some rough patches, but I am confident they will come out on the other side as friends and siblings and still close.

I upped my running today to 1.25 miles from 1.0. I think I could have actually gone further, but one thing at a time. I'm just very pleased with myself. And I feel so much better than when I was just walking. I sooooooo need that run!
