Ok, our family is getting together in a few weeks for our annual family reunion. I really love these get reconnected family things. It will be held in a giant park in Salt Lake City. (Pioneer, or Liberty Park, but I cant remember which one.) I like S.L.C. It is a very bug city. I have been to temple square, and really like the whole look of the temple. Just really neat. I am sure that we will be going there for part of our tour of the city. Much of my family is LDS,(Mormon) so it will be very nice for them. I am just thinking that these family reunions are the best way to get reconnected to family that I have not seen in a long time. On the other hand, I have a few family members that I dont get along with. I hate "playing" nice, like I use to in the past, so, I will be confronting it head on this year. I have been doing a lot of thinking about this, and I have decided to just get into a conversation with those who may not like me, and try to make a good impression. I love all of my family, and they are great people. I just made many enemies when I went to prison. Have you had your family reunion, and how did it go? Do you have family members who you know will show up that may not get along with you? How will you handle it?

I've gone to family reunions that were good and some that were bad, too, but overall it's cool to catch up with people I don't see often. For the most part, we get along all right, but there are some who have different lifestyles that I don't see otherwise because we have nothing in common. We're polite but we don't even try to be close. Good luck with yours. I hope it turns out great.

I love family reunions... Yes, it is good to see all faces after a while of absence... I haven't had any family member that I cannot get along because I always see to it that during our meetings we have a nice day to remember. Although, I get offended on some things but I don't make a big deal over it. I will always try to weigh things; however, if it is too much, I always find solutions on the issue. There are people who really are rude even if you do not want to make arguments and I cannot do something about them. I just let it pass and let time heal all issues. Do you think these attitude is good? I am not a war freak person; however, I do face my battles...
