Thanks for the feedback on yesterday's post. I had an opportunity to talk to Ben the manager. While he was empathetic when speaking with me, he also mentioned that there might be some penalties for both of us. I was horrified. I do take responsibility for moving her mat over but there was no reason for her getting physical. What fries me is that if I had never reported it to the management then all would be well. In Tim's defense, he did try to diffuse the situation. What he should have done is gone and got the on-sight manager when I asked him to (when it happened!) but he wanted to continue working with me to utilize my time wisely. I did tell Ben that if there is any penalty imposed on me, I will cancel my membership. I don't need the bullsh*t and while it is a great resource, I can surely manage on my own. Side note: They let me make payments on the PT sessions and they have not asked for the 2nd payment and at this rate unless they do, I am not going to offer.

I still have not gone to see my mom. I really need to but honestly, I am happier when I don't have to deal with her. I know that sounds sad and harsh but she takes a lot of energy out of me and I am trying to take care of myself too. My brother is coming up again so that will help. She needs a new dishwasher so I am going to look for one online and hopefully have it delivered on Saturday.

Dave went back to Santa Cruz last night. It was nice to have the place to myself again. I had a friend come over and she commented that it felt like "Camp Katie" again which is what we used to call my old apartment. That made me smile. I have been spending quite a bit of time decorating and organizing so it was affirming to have her say that. Until next time...


  1. Hmm...I think a new gym MAY be in order? LOVE "Camp Katie", you've obviously made the place your own!!! Have a great Tuesday.

  2. Seriously. I want to punch that girl. Wow.


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