Okay, I need advice on whether I'm being ungrateful or practical.  The past couple of weeks, my husband has decided that not only do I need a few cakes (birthday and Valentines Day), but I need huge cakes so I can share w/ ski people.  Granted I don't mind sharing w/ ski friends but really I have no need to share cake w/ ski staff and development classes where I barely know the people. The last cake was on Saturday. Am I being ungrateful that he does it given that 1) he knows i watch what I eat and I've already told him I don't need multiple cakes in a short time frame (he's done this before for our family) and 2) he's spent close to $500 in two weeks on cakes to feed people I barely know/don't know as a gift to me?  Thanks for bringing cake that I now have to serve/plate/clean up after everyone.  Just go to Costco and get their cheap cake if you need.  Should I say something?  For $500, there's so much that I really want!  

Whining over, it was such a warm weekend of skiing and my legs are feeling tired. I need to schedule another massage.  I'm dressed to go ice skating which I haven't in a long time but the Olympics made me want to go back to it.  And, there was an article in the paper about older people skating and one woman learned to do doubles, after 50. I already do singles and my goal had been an axel. I thought I was too old for it, given how hard the ice is, but maybe not?  Hope you all had a good weekend!

Yeah, Jen (remember her, way back? Miss her being on the board) and I were talking about loving people but the way they want to be loved not the way you do.  So the Golden Rule isn't Do Unto Others what you would have them do unto you but how they want to be treated not how you want to be treated.  We deal w/ this in my own family where my father told us our mom might do the wrong thing (and usually does unfortunately) but whatever she does comes from a place of love.  Just ignore the comments and actions.
