But there's one problem. We haven't been able to make it the whole 5 miles without an squabbling. Sure, this was only our 3rd week, but fighting is no fun, so we had to figure out a way to make it stop.
So this morning, we came up with a code word. As soon as one of us started to realize a fight starting, we said, "Yellow."
1) It breaks up the flow of conversation.
2) It can stop a convo before it goes too far downhill (into a disagreement).
3) It's kinda funny.
And you know what? It worked! Before we even hit 1/2 a mile, Josh had to call out 'yellow.' I never even saw it coming but once he said 'yellow,' I realized why he said it.
We decided to keep it going throughout the day, and it's pretty magical!
How do you keep arguments from happening with the ones you love?
