Dealing with Family
Friday, November 16, 2012
I can do this.
My brother phoned yesterday about details of our Houston trip. We will both be staying with our cousin Mary for a few days starting Sunday. He's coming from NC, I'm coming from
CA. I'm not looking forward to this. But, I've prepared [I think].
1] I have read a book about dealing with difficult people and have a couple of new strategies.
2] I read a blog and I have a couple of new zingers.
3] I've lost 35-40 pounds since I saw him last and my self-confidence is much improved.
4] Mary will be there if I need a shoulder to cry on.
5] SP is everywhere there is internet, so I can cry on all your shoulders, too. Or give you a good report.
I'm beginning to feel better from my respiratory infection and should be even more improved by Sunday when I get on the plane. With help from my Spark Friends, I can do this!
