                  abs  hurt for 2 days. Great for the whole family.

Something to Think About:

No More Drama

Everyone has some sort of family drama around the holidays. Say no to the drama. Accept people for who they are and make a decision not to take on their issues and not to react to their drama. Curb the drama even before it happens if you can. If not - decide now to be non-reactive to the drama.

A good strategy is think of something that you find hysterical. When you find yourself getting caught up in someone elses issues tell yourself that this is not your issue and think about your funny scenario. If you are able to look at the situation as a fly on the wall you will usually find the situation itself pretty funny.
