Three things weighing on me today, that I want to cast out of my mind, so I may sleep more lightly (and wake to tread more lightly on the scale!):
1) Husband is still looking for work. Lots of interviews, some missteps, no money coming in. Oy.
2) One of my oldest friends (for 36 years!) met someone through a dating site, and he proposed to her after 2 months of dating. He's been divorced for 8 months. Um.....my head is saying NO NO NO! Something just isn't right, and she hasn't talked girlfriend-to-girlfriend with me AT ALL. Weird. When she texted (yep, not even an email or call) that he'd given her a ring last night, I really didn't know what to say that wasn't alarming! So I just texted back: Congrats!
3) My Mom confided in me that they may be moving into an assisted-living place in the Spring. They've had a place in mind for a while, but both of my parents are fairly active, so I thought....way off in the future. My dad has had a few heart issues, though, and may be getting a pace maker. Surprisingly, he is the one pushing for moving in sooner, rather than later. It wasn't so bad discussing it with my mom, though, because we joked about how much crap my parents have and yard sales and such. And stabbing relatives to get what you want. (Her sister swiped a lot of my Grandma's stuff when no one was around.)
Anyway! Too much to process in one day, so I'm sending it out on virtual prayer flags to the Universe.
