I had a refreshing weekend. How about everyone else? I worked through all of my lawyer's notes, and responded with my questions, in preparation for court next week. Go forward. I didn't awesome yoga class on Saturday, and my upper back is screaming. My attention to my upper back from the physical therapist is why, and I am already feeling less pain in the thoracic area. I  Am ecstatic that I finally found someone with a noninvasive solutions my pain. Plus, I found someone to give me a massage, and have a covered by insurance. I go visit my mom this weekend, and I think it's time for some difficult conversations. She has been having more "issues."And I'm afraid for her safety. I hope to speak with your doctor, as well. Depending on how I feel, I may go to late night two hours of yoga tonight. What is everyone else up to?

I just noticed this. It would be nice if we could see new posts marked in a thread. It's nice that my daughter will be seen at silks with me.  I keep waiting for the eye rolls and all but it's been okay so far!  Even better is that my son will do parkour with me. I can keep up w/ silks but in parkour, i'm just an embarassment, at best.

FSN - I feel for you with your mother. You have to listen to what your heart tels you is the right thing to do. Gymrat - sorry about your freind. Honesty and integrity are really. Important to me so I would have a hard. Time looking past unethical behavior. Jean - how fun that your daughter went to silks with you. Karla - I hope you get some sunshine so you can stop doing housework...we had sunshine today, but it is cool. The nice part is that the flowering trees are staying in bloom and the city is beautiful. I went to the gym..lifting for chest/back, abs, ran two miles in 27:13.

I'd honestly have problems continuing a friendship where the person was unethical, even if she thought it was excusable. Well, it does depend on what the area is.

I'm not going to say anything you haven't thought of but her getting angry at the expense of her future is an easy choice.  Maybe the talk w/ your mom should be done along w/ the doctor.  Have you read Still Alice? I think we talked about it here.

I feel the same way. If you do something unethical and realize it's a mistake, that's forgivable. But to defend unethical behavior... Yeesh. Tough.

FSN, yeah, that's where I'm at. Needing space to adjust to a "new reality." Unfortunately, there's a lot of social things coming up so it's going to be weird.

. As for my mom, I'm hoping that the doctor can run a simple test, which is mostly verbal questions, and make some notations. That way, at least, documents some of the issues. I've already read through her Long-term care insurance policy to find out what the requirements are so that she can take advantage of the insurance that she's paid into for most of her working life. It is sad, but when my dad started his decline, he always felt comfort in knowing that he had the long-term care insurance. But, my mother did not follow the policy guidelines, so she was unable to benefit from that insurance policy, despite the fact that he had paid into it for over 50 years. That just made me sick. Anyways, I think it's time for me to have a direct heart-to-heart talk with my mom. It won't be easy. And I fear that she is going to get very angry. But, I fear for her safety. In the meantime, my allergies are at its peak. I feel miserable, similar to how you feel when you have the flu. I am so tempted to have a nice cup of coffee, but after three weeks of no caffeine, I don't want to blow my new healthy diet. Gym, I hate when you find out something like that about a friend. I've had a couple very close friends who I thought I knew, but after certain things reveal themselves to me, I realize my perception and the reality were two very different things. I had to back off of our friendship for a while, while I settled into the new reality. Once I was clear about the new reality, I was able to continue the friendship. Karla, how was your wrist doing? Wasn't that really bothering you last year? I vaguely recall you went to a specialist. Is that resolved? Jean, a wine festival sounds phenomenal at this moment. By the way, your daughter and her friends are awesome at the aerial silks.

Sorry to hear about your mom.  You're such a definite plan of action person--what are you going to do?

I went to a wine and food festival on Saturday at the National Harbor. The festival was lame but I had a good times w/ friends and the weather was beautiful. I took my daughter and her friends to do aerial silks yesterday. I finally had a good night sleep last night--this is really stupid but I finally unclogged my ear and it made all the difference. You'd think having clogged ears would let me sleep better!

I had early morning clients this morning and think I'm just taking today as a rest day. I'm feeling bleah and think it's TOM stuff. As I get nearer menopause (or so I hope), it wipes me out more and more. I seriously can't wait for it to happen.

It's hard when someone acts so out of (your idea of their) character. Hopefully, one day she'll look back and realize that she did try to justify it wrongly.  It's really hard for me to overlook ethical flaws.  Not that I'm perfect or anywhere close...

Karla, I have and she knows how I feel about it.  She's justifying it and the way she's justifying it is astounding and disturbing to me that I wonder if she hasn't just convinced herself this is okay because it what she wants.
