Coaching Files: Answering the intention and not the question
In which I learn to reframe a particularly rude and infuriating question that gets asked at every family function.
Family Holidays for the Non-Anchor Partners

Thoughts: One Post, Many Topics
Too many different things in my head. Rather than post a bunch of blogs in one night, I'm doing the ol' One Blog, Multiple Thoughts post.
