today begins three weeks of biz travel with my brother. it's 5 am. we leave for the airport in 10 minutes. this week, we're visiting five states all across the country.
it's going to be a long trip, planned around my brother's stomach.
currently, i have a terrible, pissy attitude. this morning, we're flying to idaho. our first flight, to seattle, is six hours long. i have a middle seat.
then, we sit in seattle's airport for five hours until our second 1-hour flight.
my brother's all about the long leisurely lunch we'll have. i snapped at him already -- "i don't want a long leisurely lunch."
i really have to watch myself. he's my brother, BUT HE'S MY BOSS. i have to function like i'm with a boss -- that means doing what he wants.
it's hard. i've explained my weirdness and fears around food to my brother many, many times, but he doesn't acknowledge it. it makes him angry.
i'm bringing my laptop, so this will be my savior.
does anyone have good advice about biting your tongue, getting a better attitude, controlling your temper?
