I was very unsettled for much of yesterday, because I learned that one of my best friend's mom, Shelley Day, is going to jail for defrauding a bank. I was really hit by this line: At sentencing, U.S. District Judge Thomas S. Zilly called her "a sophisticated, educated person setting out to defraud anyone to reach her goals." I've known her since I was in seventh grade when she drove Jeff Q, Travis, and I on a field trip, and I know her fairly well (for a friend's parent). I have talked about her in this blog before: she was how I was able to meet Steve Francis, and a year and a half ago I was happy to have her at our July 4th party. In fact, IIRC, I talked to her very briefly on the phone when I was hanging out with her son just two weeks ago. I always thought she was a capable woman, so I can't imagine why she would do this. She was always friendly to my family and me, but now I'm wondering if that was honest, or just a facade. I'm not angry at her, but I am very disappointed and my trust in other people has greatly diminished. I'm not going to say too much more until I have a chance to talk to Travis and get more information. I do wonder what will happen with Chelsea (Travis's girlfriend), though. She had been living alone with Shelley in Renton and attending Bellevue Community College.
