I woke up at 1AM to let the dog out, to find that ss had plans to take my keyboard for his gig tonight without even asking me.  I was so pissed, that I couldn't get back to sleep.  Try as I might, I realized that what I wrote yesterday is more a thoughtful wish on my part When it comes to work.  However, in my personal life, I can't help but scream (or emotionally feel. Ike screaming) when people try to walk all over me.  When he woke up this morning,  I told him how rude it was, and that I expected a note with an apology AND a thank you for letting him use the keyboard for the last several years.  He told me that, "I forgot that the keyboard was yours" which I know is a passive aggressive <FU> which I can't even phantom since it has been a source of contention for a couple years.  I made it extremely clear that they keyboard is MINE and that I am letting him use it, and that I still had never heard so much as athnk snacks" severyea three years, now.  AAARGH...dh is part of the problem...blended families can really suck.  :(. C'est la vie...life goes forward.  It's gonna be a long day with work, followed by watching ss at his gig tonight.  Although I have had no caffeine in months, I think that will change today!

Oh FSN, that's awful.  I don't blame you for being upset.  It  must be so difficult to be a parent in a blended family.  *hugs*  Treat yourself to some kind of fall-themed coffee something-or-other.  

Doing cardio this morning as well as laundry.  DH is going out this afternoon so I will have some quiet time to myself before hanging out with OP for the weekend.  

Kitty is hanging in there.  We talked to the vet who suggested that if he's in pain from his back sprain, that could spike his blood sugar.  He got a little extra insulin yesterday afternoon and his regular dose last night.  We're going to test him this morning and see where he's at.  He was in his usual step-over-me spot in front of the bathroom morning so I'm taking that as a good sign.  

I woke up early today.  I've noticed that in the early morning hours of the day, I tend to make decisions.  This morning, I decided that I'm going to start allergy shots.  I had the window open yesterday afternoon and it was SO nice but I am paying for it.  I realized that if I do it now, I'll pay significantly less since I've already met my deductible.  As soon as they're open, I'm going to call my allergist's office to schedule the testing required.  I'd also like to get a jump on this before spring hits.

Fresh, your ss sounds like any of my kids. They help themselves to my stuff and conveniently "forget" to return it or even acknowledge they have it. 

Gym, my husband and I discussed your cat over our morning coffee while all four of ours rolled all over us. We gave them each an extra hug in honor of your little buddy.

I had my "interview" with a new primary care physician today. It was quite interesting. She told me as much about herself as I told her about me. She decided to take me into her practice and told me she was fascinated with my lifestyle. It was the first time a doctor has every asked me about my marriage, my eating/sleep habits, extensive details about my exercise, and many other things I have never had to discuss before. She may be really good for me and my family. 

I'm going jog 5 miles today with my sister. Leftover chicken for dinner. 

I'm going to spend my weekend with this beautiful little man:

How frustrating w/ your ss, especially if you're not getting support. I agree w/ Karla that kids do conveniently "forget" that something isn't theirs. I'm reminded that I had a new order of Free People clothes come in and they've all disappeared.  Hmmm. At least w/ my daughter, and it might be the case w/ your ss, she's not being to be disrespectful. She knows I'd just say yes so she never asked.  I remember having the same problem w/ a roommate who would also borrow clothes from me. She and her sisters did that all the time and it never occurred to her that this was different. 

GR, good to hear that kitty is hanging in there. Karla, your grandson is way too cute!  It must be so much fun to have a baby around, and not have to take care of him 24/7!

I had early morning clients and then went to parkour which is the conditioning class.  The instructor gave me a hard time about finishing the class on Wed when I dislocated my finger and then going to silks. He said it was a bad thing when he was the most responsible one in the group (he's hard core parkour, made the finals on American Ninja Warrior, young fit guy).  He's brought up the pace of the class and it's so much harder/better now.  I do wish there were more parkour in the class, though.

Here's a question for you all. There's a trainer at the parkour gym who was looking for more work so I forwarded his resume to my general manager.  He has good credentials but I only spoke w/ him a couple of times. It sounds like he does some unsafe experimental things in class, like that katsu training where you use compression cuffs on the limbs before lifting. One woman has been injured and had to see a doctor.  Her doctor said it was a lawsuit waiting to happen.  Should I say something? The people at work liked him and I did tell them I didn't know him that well.

Awww, thanks Karla!  Kitty was sunbathing today so I'm taking that as a good sign.  

Jean, did the trainer suffer any repercussions from the lady's injury?  Does he recognize it was a bad idea?

She hasn't said anything. She just stopped going to class and is really upset at him for trying stuff like that. The thing is the other people who go to his class love him.  He's young so I wonder if he understands the older crowd.  OTOH, there is a new trainer who I also wonder about, as older people go.  I don't think they get that as you get older, your goals change and you're injury rate can go up, if you're not careful.

If he's doing unsafe things and you refer him, that could potentially come back on you.  If he has a supervisor, it might be a good idea to speak to him/her... not to get him in trouble but so that someone with authority can say "Look, you need to be aware of x, y, and z..."

It's questionnable on safety.  I've been reading about occlusion training and there are quite a few advocates.  

http://www.begin2dig.com/2010/05/occlusion-tightening-up-everything-we.html

Who's to say? I had someone break an ankle on a body bar and someone break an arm on the BOSU and I think I'm safe.  I've read some things about the occlusion training that sounded really bad but some not.  He's credentialed, probably better than I am.
