Sorry I’ve been away, I was out of town for the weekend………and when I tell you what I did you may think I’m a fool, or just a devoted mom.
Adrienne had a softball college showcase in South Florida, near Ft. Lauderdale………what does that city conjure up in your head? Palm trees, sunshine, maybe a beach, warm breezes………..well guess what? We were there during the coldest days in over 30 years!!! Between wind, rain,and cold it was not good weather…………..but we did see softball! I was the supportive mom and watched all her games. When we arrived on Friday, sunny, 75. Saturday morning, raining and 36….OMG it was cold!! Sunday, 33 with a wind chill of 28. Thankfully Adrienne played well…………love that kid.
Here are some other things on my mind
- My dad is doing better, but has some moments of confusion of dementia. Physically he is getting stronger
- Our new puppy is doing fine, she had two nights recently when she didn’t want to sleep when we did, and oh my can that puppy whine and bark! She is back to sleeping better now.
- I’m 3 weeks and 4 days into really battling my depression and I’m not feeling big changes yet. It’s frustrating but my dr told me the meds may take 4 to 6 weeks to fully work. The worst part is the anxiety I still find myself having.
I’m having a bit of a struggle on an issue, so I’m asking my bloggy friends for some great words to use.
When you disagree with someone do you sometimes just say nothing? I’m so not good at that, maybe my word for the year should have been silence…lol. This is something really small………something insignificant, but because I disagree and perhaps because we really are very different an online friend from a group has told me I often act like I’m better than her. This stems from a comment I made, well I’ve made it more than once. This group often shares dinner plans, menus etc. Her family has a weekly date at McDonalds for dinner. I do not care what people eat, but honestly this would not be a weekly planned dinner for us, heck most nights not even a dinner out together. Is it out and out wrong for me to point out that my family would not eat that? My husband doesn’t like McD’s……..heck two of my kids don’t. We’ve struggled and tried hard to eat less fast food………Kevin especially since his diabetes diagnosis.
I’m not a snob, but if I write that I wouldn’t eat something, does that equate to thinking less of a person’s food choices? I don’t eat mayonnaise either, but I live in a house where it’s loved, and I don’t think less of my family…LOL.
Maybe I need to continue to work on my responses or just not reply………..and then I think………gosh why does she keep pointing out this weekly ritual and getting upset if I say, enjoy but not for us…………. I hate this feeling.
So I hope you aren’t eating a big mac or a quarter pounder with cheese reading this, and if you are eating those fries(which I do like) don’t be offended………
