just.keep.swimming's Journal, 27 March 2012

I got an unexpected day off of work because I had to take mom to the eye doctor. Scary- she lost her vision for a while thanks to a detached retina. She is ok, but shaken. :(

After this journal I may go bake something since I need to work out the jitters and I'm starving.

Other happenings:
My old roommate came home yesterday for a very short visit. I'd had a goal to be a certain weight by her visit; I slacked off and missed it. She was size 3? and a big partier when we used to go out together to the bars. I always hated being the fat one and having all the guys falling at her feet. This time it was a very low key visit which was different. I was shocked to see that she's gained weight to be around my size. It'll come back off I know. As much as I wanted to compete with that image in my head, I really don't want her to stop being gorgeous and tiny. Is it weird to say that it made me really sad?

I need opinions- if friend A and friend B have never met and friend A invites you to a casual visit- it'd be rude to invite friend B along, right? There are some types of casual visits that it's acceptable, but other visits aren't open to inviting everyone. I have a friend upset with me that they didn't get invited along last night. I just don't understand, I guess. In my head- my roommie came for a very quick visit and the purpose of meeting was to catch up. She only invited a few of us. It's not appropriate to invite my other friends along.

That was the little fight yesterday. I'm proud of myself for standing up for my opinion here. I don't have to allow crazy stuff like this to be friends with someone. I got over all of that when I got away from the abusive ex, why would I take it from friends?

Life is kind of crazy sometimes. I'll try to write more later about this new challenge I've joined. I need to get my head all set on it and get the goals recorded. :)

Glad to hear that your mom is okay. About your former roommate. You obviously care about her, so you would gain nothing by being happy about her weight gain; so being sad, isn't weird, it's compassionate. About the hypothetical situation, it depends on the friends, and what your plans were for the evening; however, when in doubt, text, or make a phone call to find out if it's okay. Congrats on sticking to your guns though. :-)

So glad your mom is better...as for the friend thing..she/he is being very childish..I am sure if the table was turned the other way you would not even think of barging in on such a visit..Great job sticking to your guns...You shouldn't have even had to worry about that...:O)

Hope your mom is feeling better! My opinion on the friend thing is that you should stick to your guns. Just because those friends haven't met, doesn't mean they need to meet right now. You should be allowed a night without that particular friend. You're right you don't have to allow that craziness. I had a friend like that and had to distance myself from her because it got to be too much, she was jealous whenever I did anything without her, even going out with my husband. You just need to make yourself happy!

Glad mom is better, hope it isn't a recurring issue! The friend is being a jealous child. I'm with ShyGuy here, you could text or call to find out if it's ok, but you should not feel guilty about not bringing them, after all, they don't know each other! You are allowed to have other friends!!

Life is crazy! And something must have been in the air because I had something happen to me on FB last night that I found rude and out of place. I posted something for a friend that is still fighting cancer. She is doing a 3 day walk with the Susan G K. Foundation. Well a yogi acquaintance decides to add her agenda to my post about helping her out. And the agenda is something about how the SG Foundation is funding only in support to continue cancer and not making people better. This to me was out of line. How rude. Needless to say...I'm keeping this acquaintance at very close by far away ties. But you are right...we are thrown in to situations that others do not understand. But its how WE as the individual handle these situations. I think you did the right thing. And honor yourself! Sorry I've been missing for a while! But I'm going to try and say hi every now and then!!
