All but one inning Friday

My daughter, Abby, had a double header ball game last night and she got to play in all but one inning! Same coach as last year but this time much different. He let her play several different positions and she actually got to be in the game rather than sit on the bench. I hope the rest of the season goes like this.

It is really hot out today and the humidity is high so it'll be late before I head out to get in a few miles. I just don't seem to be able to tolerate the heat like I used to.

I have family in from out of town this weekend so I'll probably do a lot of grilling out. I love summer because you can whip up a fruit salad and throw some meat and a veggie on the grill and you have a great meal. :-)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Gymrat, they don't call or 'roid rage' for nothing...steroids are miracle drugs but huge side affects....hope you feel better soon. jean, great picture! Karla, that is great for your daughter. I was such a non-athlete growing up, my heart breaks for kids who want to play but instead ride the bench. I like lifting, running, and swimming for the individual ness of them - I only ompete against myself. FSN, I think many women try to solve the world's problems...or at least the problems in their world. I suffer from 'I want everyone to be happy' but because I live alone and have no direct responsibility, I get my own time and space...but so,etimes I notice that I am making me crazy, and I need a break. I do think that if you enable another person to much, in reality you cripple them...but since I don't have kids, I don't know how hard it is to let go. My day w much like yesterday. I am working on a project with my boss..usually we work on different things...and his lack of grasp of the magnitude of the issues, and his desire to say yes to people is making things very tense. I am tired of being right and not being listened to...until later, when people say 'you were right'. If it weren't for the money, I'd retire tomorrow....I am going to the Cape this weekend (on the bus right now) and then traveling for business Sunday night...I had to pack for both trips which made my bag heavy...and when I was almost at work (walking) I realized my IPad was on my kitchen counter. I want it for the weekend, but need it for work...so I went home in the middle of the day. On the way back, I stopped at CVS to buy candy for the communal jar, and while I was in the store. I heard (but didn't see) a woman hit her child...and she kept walking, talking on her cell phone. The child cried in a way that was just crushing...he was about five. I felt so badly, but I wasn't sure what to do. I wanted to give him a hug...or call the police...but I did neither. I did say to him very quietly,'it will be ok' but even that seems wrong...I was crying when I got back to the office. It was just so upsetting, and I feel like I should have done something...I have seen mothers frustrated with kids having tantrums, but this wasn't like that. I don't know what the child did, but the mother seemed to not even pause in her conversation...anyway, there it is...no workout today, but an extra walk in the middle of the day.

FSN, big giant hugs to you.  I know exactly how you feel.  I too am a "recovering codependent" (which, I've decided, is like being an alcoholic in that you're ALWAYS going to be one no matter what).  And, I too have been struggling with similar things and am having to set some boundaries that people in my life don't particularly like. It always comes down to boundaries.  That's the only way we can keep ourselves healthy.

I was out the door at seven this morning. I got soaking wet in the pouring rain working. I feel like I'm constantly on the run. I have more work to do, and I have to pack and drive down to see my mom. One of the doctors that I call on that has probably one of the highest IQs Was asking me a lot of questions about my life. After bit of time, I asked him to give me his candid and frank psychoanalysis. He paused,, hesitant to speak. I pressed him. He said that I'm a very nice person who seems to get her teeth kicked in by everyone around her. He recommended that I go on vacation by myself and let everyone else attend to their own lives. I think I have to stew on this one. I thought I had gotten out of the codependent cycle, but the activities of those around me tell me that I haven't quite exited that role. . Perhaps, that's why I can't finish my quilt. I am so tired of people being mean to me. And, yet, I know that I teach people how to treat me. This is definitely something I need to continue to work on. Oh, how I long for a glass of wine. SJ, I'll bring the bottle over. Lol. Carla, what happy, wonderful news for Abby. And Jimru, hugs on the agitated feelings. I can relate to that, although mine is more hormonal. Jean, I think it is phenomenal that you got a huge picture of yourself in the newspaper. Everyone, have a great weekend.

Karla, how great for Abby!  

I had one client this morning and one cancel so I'm done for the day.  I need to do a strength training workout and I'm taking the kitty to the vet this afternoon for a re-check of his blood sugar levels.  

I am so hating the prednisone.  My mood evened out there for a while and then the mood swingy/rage-y-ness came back this week.  I want to start carrying around those orange cones and just set them up around me wherever I am.  Tongue Out  I think I have about 3 more weeks on it...  Let's hope I do not end up in jail before then.
