We had a trip to Virginia Beach over the past week – that’s why I haven’t posted much recently. It was fantastic; it was not stressful, it involved a lot of relaxation and just … being. My family has apparently finally realized that they have been adding to my stress, not relieving it, and they’ve cut it out. (Thank goodness – I don’t need that kind of help!)
I was able to visit with my brother- and sister-in-law – and that is always good. I also had a chance to go to Nags Head to see my stepsister at her timeshare. My mother and I rode down together and the three of us spent the afternoon relaxing and talking; it was wonderful. Who knows – I might actually be able to develop a good adult relationship with both of them! That might be wonderful!
