2 most horrible things parents say.

The 2 worst things parents say:
1."Because I said so"
2."I don't need to explain myself"

Those are the two phrases that bug me to bits! "Because I said so" I understand can be a last resort when a child isn't listening, but all we want to know is WHY you're saying so. What is your reasoning behind it?
"I don't need to explain myself" but sometimes it helps. Especially when we don't understand. Instead that just cuts off the conversation & leaves us frustrated. We just want to understand where you're coming from so maybe we could see your side of it. Lord knows we're stubborn, but maybe if we had some logical answers as to why we're being told what we're being told we might understand and maybe even agree in the end.
Communication is waaay important!
Be open =]

Who put the "glad" in "gladiator"?

Negativity & I, we don't get along very well. I don't like being mad at people. I don't like fighting with people. I don't like people being mad at me, it makes me sad. I especially don't like when my parents are upset w/ me.
It seems like there has been a lot of negativity in my life lately. I could blame it on current events. I could blame it on what's going on in the world. Heck! I could even blame it on the cosmos [if i believed in all that jazz]. But I'm pretty sure that would get me nowhere. Bottom line is, I let it get to me.
But hopefully all that nonsense is dead & gone, and it's back to seeing a bright side in everything! Well... almost everything. =]

On another note:
4th of July was super!! My most favoritest holiday EVER was spent with the fam bam & Allegra & Deanna. Lots of food, yummy cobbler, delicious guacamole, pretty [&dangerous] fireworks, Edward Scissorhands & Beetlejuice, & sitting on the roof.
I also went fishing the other day! yay me! haha It was definitely an experience. I got seasick & slept most of the time. But the time when I was conscious was pretty fun. I caught a couple fish... with some help =]. lol I didn't get sunburned even though i slept in the sun! and I didn't fall overboard! :D That in itself is a success in my book.
