In year's past, conflicts have erupted over:
- Making coffee.
- Doing dishes.
- TV usage.
- Reprimanding children who are not your own offspring.
- Getting sand in the bathtub.
- Sleeping arrangements.
- The location of where cars should be parked.
- Alcohol usage.
This year's annual Morro Bay trip just ended. Our original family of 5 is now 11 people.
Bad things that happened include: heavy rains on Friday delayed all of us; my dad had a brief trip to the Emergency Room; my mom had a minor car accident on Monday; I spent the whole time sick with a hoarse voice and a cough; my niece Ellen had a cough; and, by the end of the weekend, my sister and my husband were getting sick.
But, the good things that happened totally outweigh the bad. It was a good trip. There was less conflict than in year's past - maybe we're all growing up a bit? Finally.
