It's time for the annual family trip to the beach.
Three families are involved (yours and your two siblings').
There had been a few strategy meetings about lodging, food, transportation and activities leading up to the trip. There were many Excel spreadsheets, color coded binders and file folders involved. Everyone - adults and kids - are excited.
When the caravan arrives at the beach house, your sister's family has not pre-purchased their groceries for their assigned meals (citing they thought they'd wait until they got to the resort town) and the small market is beyond their budget. Your kids have lost their minds and are WWE-style fighting. Your brother's wife is nagging at him and making everyone feel uncomfortable.
What would YOU do?
