12 Days of Eatin’, Drinkin’ & Be Merryin’: Day 12 – Home is where the Heart is.

on the twelfth day of eatin’, drinkin’ & be merryin’, my true love said to me – home is where the heart is, in all its tainted glory.

Three ideas for better communication with the people that swim in your gene pool this holiday season.

No. Three is most likely to be effective.


A Sample of Non-Violent Communication:

BEAR Feedback Model: effective tool for giving feedback to children in a non-evaluative manner. Possible creation of complete and utter resistance by adults, especially those who may have some Type A-ness, or fear

B: identify the behaviour

E: express the effect it had on you

A: alternatives

R: any requests 


B:  Aunt B when you drink all of the Vodka

E: It has a disappointing effect on me

A: Maybe you could consider Rum, Whiskey, Wine, Gin, Tequila…(need I go on?)

R: I am requesting more Vodka for my Breakfast Cesar…



Inhale Love, Exhale Peace

Inhale Love, Exhale Patience

Inhale Love, Exhale Love


As one of my favourite 2014 brides said on her wedding day: INHALE VODKA, EXHALE VODKA


Inhale WINE Exhale Tolerance

Inhale MORE WINE Exhale Love Everyone

Inhale EVEN MORE WINE Exhale Hilarity 


*Peace otherwise known as sleep, or porch monkey, or passing out
