Walking away is not an option... dialogue must prevail.

"A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is he is disagreeing with."

You just have to wait and something good happens.

The week is finally over! And I managed to survive the monkeys!

My Chicklet is now officially on summer vacay. Yesterday evening, we attended the school's year end Family Party.
Apart from the cold (seriously, we lost 10 Celsius degrees in a week) it was lovely. I'll try and upload the video I took with my cell phone.

My heart is smiling despite some difficult past few days.

*fingers, toes and all manner of body parts are crossed for something good*

Enjoy the summer solstice my friends... May it bring a new season of love and new beginnings. Dance in the moonlight and let your troubles slip away.

I hope your weekend is better to balance out your rough week.

Jay said...

Have a kick-ass weekend!

Charles Gramlich said...

Yeah for chicklet. Hope you two have fun.

Dana said...

My "little" one (12) finished up his first year of middle school this week too! I think I needed his summer break more than he did.

Travis: Thanks. I'm sure it will be. It's in my power to go towards the positive and leave negativity behind.

Jay: SMOOCH! I'll be doing quite a bit of work around the house, but I know I'll enjoy myself. I've got the house to myself! Woohoo! You too sweets!

Charles: Thank you dear. She gets to spend the coming week with her aunt and two cousins, I'm sure she'll have a blast. I think I'll enjoy a chick movie with a good meal and some great vino tonight.

Dana: I know exactly what you mean! I thought I'd already graduated and was not free of homework... I was kidding myself! Have a great summer vacation from school! hehehe

Turnbaby: For every season... turn turn turn.

And I love you my sweet friend.
