Finally Friday!

Yay, we made it to Friday! It was questionable there for a little while... Had a decent night last night. Dave is staying the weekend because he has some appts. he needs to go to today. He helped me do laundry and made me dinner too.  We split a steak and had a baked potato and spinach.  I was pretty numb after all the emotional upheaval yesterday so I went to sleep at 9:00 p.m. I had trouble staying asleep which is unusual for me so I am a little tired today.

I can't thank you all enough for your support on yesterday's post. I know there are always two sides to every story and I am no angel BUT facts are facts and I have a proven track record when it comes to taking care of my mom. Neighbors, family members, hospital staff and friends tell me I am a good daughter and I am doing the right thing by her. She has survived Breast cancer, a triple bypass and valve repair and a stroke and I was by her side every time. For this particular situation, she called him and he responded to her call. I would not have called him but it is what it is. I was harsh in my responses to him but I don't feel guilty because I finally said what I have been wanting to say for years. It still makes me sad but I can't dwell on it.

It is supposed to be nice here again this weekend. I am going to have to help my mom on Saturday with tax prep and filing but I do plan on getting on my bike again. Not sure what I will do on Sunday. It is Superbowl so Blinky's is having a party. I most likely will go for a little while but the game does not start until 4:00 p.m. Did you know that Superbowl Sunday is the 2nd largest consumption day next to Thanksgiving? I heard that on the radio this morning and was a little shocked but it makes sense. Hope you all have a great weekend. Until next time...



  1. Finally friday indeed! I think you're right not to regret it, some things needs to be said!! Hugs!

  2. You are a good daughter and person! Glad you finally got to tell your brother how you feel. We have similiar brothers. Have a great weekend, our weather has been gorgeous :).

  3. You ARE a good daughter. Let no one ever question that! You cannot control your brother or his reactions or emotions.

  4. I'm glad you're feeling a little more at peace. I also had it out with my brother and he is not happy with me. But I don't care. I have to keep my dad and his best interest safe. You are a good daughter Katie:) xox

  5. Hope you can relax and have a good weekend, my friend!

  6. You are a wonderful daughter & for anything to think otherwise is wrong.

    You have no reason to feel sad the only person who should feel sad & bad is him.

    I always enjoy a great football but this year I will make sure I am aware of everything I eat.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
