Because of who I am - I have been doing a lot of thinking about this summer and the campgrounds. I know Sir Steve would love to spend most of the summer there -- it would make him very happy. My discomfort over possible - POSSIBLE - problems with his ex-wife and inlaws was putting a damper on his happiness. He has done everything possible to make it easier for me.
So it was my turn to figure out how I could do this - for him -- but also for myself. I love nothing better than sitting by the water in the summer - hell I had a cottage for a few years and spent my entire summer there every year.
The other day when I was talking about the new RV and my concerns awomaninacape left a comment suggesting I might actually be able to go most of the summer and never need to socialize with them. So I pulled up the map of the campgrounds and looked at proximity and social areas and formed a plan in my head.
I took a long hard look at my concerns....and realized the very worst they can do is talk.. blah blah blah. I don't believe they have the nerve to say anything to my face and even if they do - it's only words. What's the old saying "sticks and stones may break my bones BUT words can never harm me". I will set healthy boundaries for ME -- only me. I will protect my inner peace -- my calm -- my 'zen'. AND should Sir Steve's lil one decide to visit back and forth -- I have even planned out a route that does not involve anyone having to go on the other's site.
Healthy boundaries create peace and harmony ....... and that is all I want... that and to make Sir Steve happy -- and that is a good thing.
