Re: Caring for Aging Parents

Thanks, snafu! I'm careful not to plan too far ahead. My hope is that my mom can remain in her own apartment after she's not able to work anymore, and we'll pay the rent while we look for what she...

Re: Mexican Chocolate cake

Yes, if you attribute the recipe to the author, there's not any issue at all.

Generally speaking, the list of ingredients for recipes aren't copyrighted, but the stories and illustrations are. :)

Re: Moooom - arg

I'm sorry, snafu. Sadly, the bad behaviors get worse as they get older.

Re: Caring for Aging Parents

When she can't be independent, I hope to place her in a senior community so she's not isolated, and not...

Re: Moooom - arg

Well, you know that most of that is about trying to make you change your mind.

Let her do her own laundry, and be as independent as she can be. Eventually she'll have to let you help her.

Re: Conversation starter: Old friend--What would you do?

We talked on the phone once, and she said she'd call after the holidays.

We have gone in two, separate directions for 30+ years, so I don't know if we even have anything in common, besides some...

Re: "Making lemonade" 🍋

I'm sorry, snafu. Parents often get a little more self-centered as they age, and if more difficult behaviors become magnified.

Re: Help me plan "sickmas"

Chinese take out. My kids swear by wonton soup if I can't make homemade chicken noodle.

Watch A Christmas Story and it will seem like a theme! :)

Re: Conversation starter: Old friend--What would you do?

I think this is it.

I called her because I'm too dang nosey! When she worked, she did retail, but was laid off about 20 years ago and hasn't worked since. In the conversation, she said she...

That's terrible. Maybe she will quit and things will improve if you can't move. :)

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

What other options do you have, snafu?

I recently started working in a school. We have cliques and mean girls. I found a group to be with. It makes lunch easier.

Re: Hot and Cold Friend

Giving her space is the right thing to do. It's hurting you right now because you miss her, and because you are not filling that space with other people and activities. So, change the story. ...

Hi, Pad, Welcome back!

I'm sorry that you do not feel happy, don't know what will make you happy, or know what you want.

A few things may be affecting you.

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

Documenting is good. Have you read anything on Relational Aggression? I found some of the articles to be very helpful in identifying and helping handle the mean girl.

Re: At the movies II

A Star is Born-- Wonderful! I am in awe of the talent!

Night School-- This was much funnier than I thought. I did not expect to laugh so hard! Plus, it has a serious note that I appreciated.
