Met up with son and daughter in law for dinner last night. We met about in the middle between the two of us. Had a nice evening.
Got out for an afternoon walk yesterday on the bike trail. It was a warm day but the trail is shaded and made for a nice walk. Ponder work and life right now. Still not loving my job...even when co-worker who used to give me fits is leaving...the last few months she has been pleasant to work with. My goal this year is to have a "Right Attitude" and right now it's not so good. Seems like contant chage...so is life right...so get over it. Have to readjust my attitude...take an attitude check. Felt frustrated with Mom...can't change her only can change my atttitude and my reactions to what comes at me. Pondered what I would like to be doing with my life right now. Seems like life is zooming by and I'm stuck doing a job I don't like. Maybe when Hubby gets a job I won't feel so much pressure.
My patience with Mom wore thin yesterday. Of course we always have to play the game...where do you want to eat...anywhere you want...what about here.....NO, okay what about there....NO OK where do you want to eat.....anywhere you want....UGH. So we ended up at Frisch's buffet. That way she has no waiting and she tends to eat more variety...and so do I. But that way she gets fruit, meat, eggs etc. She really ate a lot yesterday. Haven't taken her out in 3 weeks as she's been under the weather. The whole while we have to hear that this is all she will eat for the rest of the day. When I talk to her this morning she'll tell me what she had to eat....afterwards. Not sure why but some days I'm patient and others I tire of the games we have to play. We like to get her out to eat at least once a week to make sure she is eating and eating a variety of things. Sometimes she really eats good and we wonder if she's not really eating at home. Hubby keeps an eye on her food usuage as he takes her to grocery and helps her put things away. Oh well...I keep thinking I don't want to be that way with my kids...probably already am....UGH! Last night I told my son I wasn't picking where we ate....I didn't care where...I just had done enough picking for one day. So they picked. But I didn't make them repick...what they picked was fine....I just wanted to see them.
Busy week ahead...when isn't it? Club meeting tonight, tomorrow night hair etc. etc.
Having a going away lunch for co-worker who's leaving to stay home with her daughter. Gotta run card by other office this AM and still hit the drycleaners. Go! Go! Go!
Off to make it a great day!
