I think you misunderstand the common bond of an EC Gathering. We are
(loosely) a "family", perhaps inbred a bit, but "family" none the less. You
wouldn't be drinking "out" - you will be in the bosom of your kin, so to
speak. Distant kin, but kin...
If you ever start to feel "embarrased" about anything, that's a clear
indication that you need to go back to one of the "workshops". Or, at a
minimum, bring some homework from a previous "workshop" along with you.
Besides, have you met Hawkins??? It'd be a good thing to be fortified prior
to meeting him. He's so... so... damm, I can't choose the right words...
(I'd like to be near when he gives a dark side tuning workshop, myself.)

For me and my parents, drinking heavily provided temporary relief.
If you have little experience with this solution, there will be
this weekend. As with other workshops, you have to give it a try. Hawkin's
workshop will be easier to handle if you attend a real "workshop" a little
before the prescribed time. It will help muchly as you descend into the
See you this weekend, at the workshops...

I just broke up a fight of fights...Katie went outside to feed and

cozy in a bed of hay), when she TRIED to come back in...nate had
locked the deck door and then the back door. and THEN through a hissy
fit because his big sister came around and in the front door.
and here i thought an 8 year age difference (one 13, one 5) would give
cure the sibling fights. i guessed wrong!
Betsey, one is a boy...one is a girl...this just compounds the normal
level of hostilities. Dwight is right, let one leave home and they
become good friends. The best friend my youngest daughter has is her
older brother; I had to cut many suppers short for the lad for abusing
his little sister. He was very clever. He knew exactly the worst
thing to say to escalate any tension.
I wouldn't worry about them teaming up against you and Fred. That
would have been done when each was around four. Now, they will just
have their own, non-collective agenda so two adults can generally
handle one of the kids at a time.
We had four and fortunately, only one was grounded at any given time,
and the youngest girl never caused problems. She was the peace maker
when not joining us as victims.
They will grow up and out. Just try to outlast them.

you guys are all too funny. i've decided that this summer's project
(following the spring series of horse shows) to keep the kids busy
will be to "clean out the basement". while this will clear it out, as
i told fred "then i can go tell nate to roller skate and shoot hockey
in the basement"
it works for my sister's boys...it's got to work for Nate <g>.
as far as the workshops...i don't drink "out". i am a cheap drunk and
will embarress myself even more than i usually do!
