Aaaaahhhh, so looking forward to my massage tonight. I have a huge knot/pain in my right trapezius. My mom left a message last night while I was out linedancing. I read it on email (voice recognition technology on Comcast), and I can't bring myself to listen to it. She berated herself for not letting me help her more. :( Sooo, I am anticipating that she will follow through on more actions this weekend to get things taken care of for her move...at least, I hope. :) I think the sad thing is that, physically, I see my mom, but mentally, she is not all there. So in some ways, I grieve the loss of my mother, since I still see her, I do not grieve the loss. Bottom line - I enjoy my moments with her. Karla, my mom is 3 hours away. It would not be good for her to move away from where she has lived for the last 40+ years of her life. She will be living across the street from her ballroom dance venue. Jean, thanks for the acknowledgement of being the good daughter. At this moment, I am (somewhat) relating to Susan Boyle, but I know that I am doing the right thing and that I won't regret having done this. SJ, I will have to check out that movie again. That makes me smile. Once the stress of getting both mother and daughter moved is mostly over, I hope to try to swim again (e.g., I hope that the pain in my trapezius calms down.) ELC, I will have to look into the visual cueing...good for you on the bike...my knees are bad, too, and I anticipate knee replacement surgery one day since I already have significant pain.
I think that I have fallen back into codependence with my mom and daughter. So I texted dd last night, telling her to investigate driving classes so she can get her license. I told her to have her boyfriend teach her how to drive (he has a car) and to get her license. I didn't remind her of the consequence - taking the bus to and from college which will add on significant inconvenience to her day. Gee, perhaps I spoil her too much. She IS going to have a nice townhome to live in. :( Or the consequence is that I "kick her out.' <sigh> She gets good grades, stays out of trouble, and is excelling at her job...and she is paying her own rent this summer while taking summer school classes. So, I indulge her in the townhome and "carrot" of the car.
Work today, massage tonight, packing to see my mother after work tomorrow...
