Mused after making chili and two stews. Seemed like a winter afternoon thing to do. Besides, I like to cook.
Some Relationship Advice from Readers of the WSJ
Listen breathe, listen.
Listen without interrupting, judging or inserting your opinion. A deep breath dissipates cortisol our fight or flight hormone. Emotional detachment allows better listening.
Assume the best.
Find the good and strength in others. Assume what they are saying is positive.
Prioritize your “A” team.
Make teams out of the people in your life. Your “A” team is your closest friends and family, “B” is friends and professional network, “C” is acquaintances. Prioritize A over B and B over C.
(Did You Know? A strong, secure person has come to peace with his or her insecurities and weaknesses.)
When one spouse notices something needs to be done they do it before the other. The only rule is that you cannot point out what you did, silence is part of the fun.
F— it Bucket
Sort what is important and anything that’s not falls under the f— it and into the bucket. It’s like cleaning your mental closet.

SERVICE OF THE WEEK:
Sclerotherapy improves spider veins in your legs. It involves injecting a clotting solution or salt water solution into the superficial legs veins that have become dilated and noticeable. The legs are wrapped or put in compression stockings for a day or two. The solution clots the veins and then the body reabsorbs them over a period of a month or two. Winter is a great time to have it done so look your best in shorts, skirts and swim suits in the summer. Call Laura for the cost involved. 513-793-5772.
