Mom, daughter adjusting to working together

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WeDneSDAy, nov. 9, 2011 During the coming year, someone with considerable influence might help you achieve more recognition in your chosen field of endeavor. Nurture any relationship that can help you get to where you want to go. SCoRPIo (oct. 24-nov. 22) -Important matters you negotiate will work out to everyone’s satisfaction if you get everyone playing off the same sheet notes. Show them how to make beautiful music together. SAGITTARIUS (nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Two ambitions that have been looking questionable can easily be fulfilled if you keep your eyes on the prize. Focus will be the key to your success. CAPRICoRn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Being a bit of a risk-taker can be both good and bad, depending on how you handle things. If you gamble on yourself, it’ll be OK, but wagering on others could be another story. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you have an important matter hanging fire, it behooves you to press for closure while things are going your way. Don’t hesitate to be firm in your commitment. PISCeS (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You have a special ability to sway others to your way of thinking and doing things. You can easily convince them to back you in whatever important project you choose. ARIeS (March 21-April 19) -Don’t waste the day playing or doing nothing, because it could be one of your better times for developing financial and material opportunities. You need to make hay while the sun shines. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Whether you’re the quiet type or one who makes a lot of noise, your presence is apt to be far more strongly felt than usual. You’re likely to make a statement that won’t go unnoticed. GeMInI (May 21-June 20) -Being both pragmatic and prudent gives you an edge in dealing with financial conditions. This is clearly a day to sit down and work on moneymaking possibilities. CAnCeR (June 21-July 22) -- You may need reminding how essential it is to be hopeful regarding the outcomes of important matters. Positive thinking will work wonders. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t shy away from competitive situations, because challenges stimulate you to accomplish big things. When you try, Lady Luck will get involved in your interests. vIRGo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- In order to spur you onward, you should find some challenging outlets that stimulate you both physically and mentally. It’ll be just such kinds of situations that can encourage and inspire you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-oct. 23) -- This could be an extremely productive day for you, but not necessarily from your own doing. You’re likely to be in the right spot at the right time to profit from the activities of others.

Could you arrange your workdays so they don’t coincide with your daughter’s? Could you drive the hour commute some of the time so you aren’t staying with her for two weeks every summer? Is it possible to find another part-time or temp job that will earn you the same amount of money? Talk to Alice, and see whether the two of you can come up with a way to make this work. This job isn’t worth alienating your child. Dear Annie: My husband was given up for adoption 61 years ago. Recently, a change in adoption laws permitted him to obtain a copy of his original birth certificate. Through the Internet, I learned that his birth parents
