Well, the dinner went well - except we'd had so much to eat earlier in the day it was a little hard to find room. We were talking about managing relationshiops, and I was surprised ot hear her say that the one person she'd never been able to figure out was mom - what her motivations were, and how it was she could hit bottom and just sit there. We both agreed that people who thought that "tough love" would work because people would always pick up once they hit bottom were fooling themselves - sometimes it didn't work. That was all pretty hard talking. We came back home to get some warmer clothes before we went out to Jazz Alley. Too bad Karrin Allison isn't playing like last week, but I hope we have a good night anyway.
