Had an emotional day yesterday but we made some headway as far as care for my mom. There is a company called Home Instead that provides services to seniors. I am going to see my mom tomorrow and have a discussion about it. I will try not to be emotional and just stick to the facts. My brother contacted the company too but I told him I thought it was redundant. I am literally about to blow a gasket with him too but I know that will not help the situation. He can't even remember to call my mom on Mother's day or her Birthday but he thinks he can come in and fix everything and then bail again. Sorry, dude, it just doesn't work that way. Bungie brother is what I have been referring to him as. He is more concerned about money and himself then he is about us and it is painfully obvious.

Sunday afternoon, I will be going to Santa Cruz (Aptos) to see my biological Uncle Steve and his wife Debbie. I will be going in the afternoon and we will BBQ and hang out. I have not seen him since last summer but we have stayed in touch through FB and by phone. I can't believe it has been a year since I discovered I had biological family that I never knew existed. I am still processing all the information even though it has been a little over a year. It changed how I view myself and enlightened me on why I behave certain ways. It challenges the nature vs. nurture theory for sure. I have a whole post brewing on that topic.

Hoping to get to the gym this weekend. I could go tomorrow afternoon or Sunday morning. At least if I did that I could say I completed at least ONE part of the STS challenge. We will see I guess... Until next time...


  1. Your Mom is lucky to have you Katie! Have a wonderful weekend, hope you have a chance to kick back and relax.

  2. Wow, enjoy your weekend - hope it goes well.

  3. Wish I could be there to help with your Mother. It could really be a real win/win. Hope things get better. Just do your best. You are a good adult daughter. I have seen a lot of them, too!
