Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Thanks!
Looks like it's a 2005 release. I'll check it out.

Barnes & Noble doesn't have it yet, but my library does as new material. I'll wait a few days before reserving it though, because we're having an ice storm and I won't be going anywhere easily for a few days.

The way I determine now how to say no, is I consider the request (or demand), and I analyze it briefly to see if it seems to be unreasonable to be asked of me, or too stressful or difficult to handle, and then reply. I've probably said no to my family about half as much as I've said yes in the last few months, so I feel like I've made progress there. :)
