Day One Hundred Twenty-Eight

June 29th, 2016 at 06:17 am

Calories: 1713

It was a somewhat emotional day yesterday, and I had cake to ease my sorrow. It didn't really make me feel better -- I need to take note of that!

Sadness issue was nothing new, just ongoing worry about my sister and the choices she makes. She asked for help (meaning financial help) to come visit this summer. My brother and I agreed to say no, as this is an ongoing problem -- and if we're funding travel for others, we'd prefer to help out our kids, who are also struggling. Still, it felt really bad to say no.

Other than that, it was a quiet day. No spending other than a load of laundry.

I checked my retirement account and it is not showing a lot of loss. Of course, only a small portion of it is invested in the stock market, since I am already retired. My sidebar shows the updated figures.

Looking forward to another baseball game today, and a mani/pedi tomorrow, in preparation for my lunch "date" in Michigan this weekend.

    I'm so sorry about your sadness concerning your sister, it's tough love as hard as it is. Please don't feel guilty. If she was struggling to feed herself, you would provide groceries. But travel is a want, not a need, and you have yourself and other family members to think about if necessary. You did the right thing. I'm in the same boat with a family member.
