I recently became a part of a new friend group and the one thing they all have in common and yet all seem to clash over is their emotions.

At the first meeting we had there were words exchanged and despite my own ability to be a hothead I found myself extremely calm about the scene before me.

As the voice of reason in the situation I gave each party their time to vent and then after that they patented ways for the time being.

Being passionate about things is one thing, but being confrontational in your approach to other people gets you nowhere.

A few days later there was another passionate exchange and I had to refer to a quote I found online:

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe.com name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
