      We already had snakes and raccons. Our dogs keep the racoons away now. Bobcats, foxes,and Bears are my main concern!

      Thankfully we don't have poisonous snakes in the area. Now, the raccoon and skunks could be a problem.

      I never ever have had the desire for chickens. When I saw 12yo rocking an armful of chicks that was all it took. :)

  2. I'm so thankful there are mothers. I just wish I wasn't her today.

      Sounds more negative than I intended. Sometimes I wish I didn't have to be the responsible party all of the time.



      Sometimes we need a BREAK!

  3. I was so proud of myself. I almost made it through February without a melt down. And then today happened.

      Thanks for the hugs and support. Today is going much better. :) It is possible that Ghirardelli's Dark & Orange chocolate is a wonder drug.

      Yes, chocolate+orange=wonder drug


      You were wise to choose the shortest month to go melt-down free. I don't even have that goal.

  4. Trying to Climbing Parnassus while my teens are playing Just Dance 4. Impossible combination. Lol!

      I feel for you. We are only a week out from it. Still checking, but we've been clear so far.

      Kim, good for you!


  7. First week done (1/2 days). : )

  8. 11yo daughter now has ten stitches in her shin. Three on the inside and seven outer stitches. We'll count it as the first field trip of the school year. Lol! She was a trooper.

      Ouch. That sounds like it hurts. Best wishes for your daughter.

      Thanks. I am amazed at how well she is doing.

  9. My girls performed this evening in "Twelfth Night." 17yo was Sir Andrew and 15yo was Viola/Cesario. So proud of them!

  10. Eating tater tot casserole. You guys are missing out! Lol!

  11. Wow! Those are awesome. The kids and I enjoyed looking at them.

  12. Hi Alice,


    Thank you for sharing your wisdom in regards to judging others.


    BTW, congratulations on you new little one!

  13. Jenny, thank you for your many comments in the "contact with unbelievers" thread. You have been very gracious.

  14. Jean, thanks for your reply http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60105 where you described how you did science. You inspired me to stop putting off science and just do it! Thanks, Polly
