Quack, quack. Duck.

Those are our mantra phrases for the weekend. We have visitors who we very much want to have the opportunity to spend this time with us before we leave but who are also stressful visitors. And so, this weekend, my goal is to let everything that is said in an ugly way or that is inconsiderate just roll off me like water off a duck's back.

When something less than supportive was said at dinner, Mike looked over at me and mouthed, 'quack, quack,' and that made me smile.

Be a duck.
