It seems that everyone I know has a big problem now. Whether it be illness, illness of a parent, or various other things it's been a rough week. I hate to see people in physical or mental distress.
I will get back to regular posting tomorrow.

I am very traditional when it comes to decor. For those of you who know me from my previous blog Preppy 50 and Loving Lilly you know that I lived with my Mother for many years. When she passed away in 2014 I sold my house and moved to an apartment. This is my living and dining room. It's a mini version of my house.

We all know the saying that life gets in the way. This week has been hectic. Between work and keeping up with friends I am beat. Let's remember that it is about 100 degrees in Philadelphia today and is expected to be 105 degrees tomorrow. I find myself pulled in many directions. Between work, building friends, old friends, and old neighbors I am stretched very thin. I try to keep up with everyone and sometimes it's just not possible to be there for everyone all of the time.
I find that summer comes and goes way too quickly. I normally vacation in the winter and the summer. I hope that I will be able to squeeze a few shore days in during August. Are you feeling pushed and pulled in many directions??

Is it me or do you have trouble saying no? Because I lived with my Mother as an adult I see the need to say yes more than to say no.
An acquaintance of mine in my building asked me to take her to the train in downtown Philly this morning. She was not feeling well so she cancelled her trip. I made other plans for the day. As I was walking out of my apartment she called and wanted me to take her to urgent care. I had to say no as I was on my way to visit a sick friend. She has family close by . I still feel guilty.
