Everything Haywire AGAIN
Up at 7 to have enough time to get money before going to jin shin. E's boss called at about 7:30. "I was wondering if you know what's going on with E?" It turned out she hasn't been to work, and although she'd told me her boss told her to stay home because of the snow -- that wasn't correct. And she hasn't been answering her job coach's calls. I said, "Oh my god, what should I do?" Her boss was very nice and we discussed the possibility of E being ill. I went to jin shin, then went to E's place and pounded on the door. I said, "Elizabeth, open the door," even though I wasn't sure she was in there. If I'd said, "Are you in there," I would probably still be pounding. I was GOING to ask how she was, ask what was wrong -- but I just said, "Get your work clothes on. I'm taking you to work RIGHT NOW." She went into her bedroom and I thought she'd locked the door, so I (after a while) said, "We have to be there in 5 minutes." She hadn't locked it, though, which was good. Then I drove her to work and went in with her. She wanted me to, which I'd never have thought. She was embarrassed and became red in the face when greeting her co-workers. I think that possible A) she got into a bad habit (One week off work is nice! And it didn't make any difference! Therefore every week off work will be fun and won't make any difference!), B) she got into a trend that she couldn't reverse or C) maybe she's depressed. Or maybe it's something else. Frank thinks I'm unwise to say, "You'll have to go and live with Deborah," as maybe she wants to.
Someone's dock has slipped free and is roaming the lake.
