You Are a Joan!


You are a Joan -- "I need to succeed"

  • * Give me honest, but not unduly critical or judgmental, feedback.
  • * Help me keep my environment harmonious and peaceful.
  • * Don't burden me with negative emotions.
  • * Tell me you like being around me.
  • * Tell me when you're proud of me or my accomplishments.

Hey Joan. Can't believe how long its been since I've had a chance to catch up on your blog. Glad to see that all went well with Pinglet's surgery and that you had a wonderful trip home and succeeded in entertaining your toddler for most of the flight. My dh got sick on the flight home too. And gotta say, though he did help, somehow I ended up on baby duty most of the time on both flights. A happy new year to you too :)
