  1. My ds did it on his own. Never saw his essays, but.. He did it all at the last minute, missed out on opportunities because of it, my blood pressure went through the roof because he missed some deadlines, needed constant pushing, and reminding. Constant. Drove. me. insane! The only thing he needed my help w/ was the fafsa.
  2. We leave Wed to take ds to school, and he moves in to his dorm on Thurs. Friday he leaves for 3 days of fish camp. If he hasn't contacted me by 10 pm Sunday night, I'll txt and ask how it went. He's actually better at texting and calling than his sisters. When they leave in 2 years, I'm probably going to have to badger them for contact. He's on check in crew for the other freshman who move in the following week, so I'll probably text then, too. Just to see how it went of course. :D I think a once a week check in, isn't too much to ask. I'm hoping I remember to do care packages for midterms and finals. I'm not good at mailing stuff.
  3. Anyone else have kids participating next week?
  4. ^^^ What Betty said. I do understand, because I'm right there w/ you w/ one of mine. I'm not letting her quit the High School team, but I did agree to let her quit club after this year.. she wants to be on the team for a full 10 years, and then quit, but she is an assistant coach, and wants to just coach after this year. High schoolers are under a lot of pressure, and Jr. year seems to be really hard. I would let him quit the club, and maybe as Betty said, it might be that he changes his mind again in a year.
  5. I assume what is going on is something just like this case:
  6. I'm so glad someone finally asked. I don't get it. Or Ryan Gosling, either. I have a feeling every post I make will now be reported by the masses trying to have me removed from the boards.
  7. I love white kitchens! And I really love all the windows. It looks great!
  8. Ugh! I hate hairball season!

      Had to laugh when I read this. Just heard hacking behind me.

      Me too.. again.

  9. It's times like this, that we need a like button on moderator posts. :D
  10. Cool front! Yippee!

  12. Can I mommy brag? My girls are freshman, and swim for a 5A school. Not only did both girls letter as freshman this year, but post-season honors came out today, and both girls made the All-District team! All coaches in the district vote, so it isn't an in-school award. I'm so proud of both of them!
  13. zimom- Congrats to your dd! I'm impressed w/ the 23 second drop in the 400. I love days like that!
  14. Woke up hoping for some news. Apparently they have so far been unable to find the debris that was seen on satellite. Reporting bad visibility and high swells.
  15. Sorry, meant Malaysian air control. And thank you, that does answer my question.
  16. This is confusing to me... If the system is showing the plane already turned for a new heading... wouldn't the Malaysian air controller ask about a change in course? Wouldn't they have seen the change in direction? edited... meant Malaysian air control, not Vietnamese
  17. Fudgemuffins. The stupid clock says 2 am. No, it's 1 am, and I'm not tired yet!

  18. Wow, Margaret, that really stinks. I feel bad for those kids. Maybe you should find a coach, and tell her you really don't like him/her, and she would let that person coach. Is there no other option? We finished up High School swim season about 2 weeks ago, both of my girls lettered as Freshman (Yay), and we are enjoying not having to run to a swim meet every weekend for a while.
  19. I find it interesting that so many of you think Rose actually wrote the books, because I remember reading a book by Rose, and thinking it was no where near the caliber of Laura. As for TLW and Silver Lake, they are two of my favorites in the series, along w/ Big Woods. And didn't everybody love, and want a dog just like Jack?
  20. My weird, possibly morbid, question of the day.... What does an atheist funeral look like? Is there any kind of service or anything? I've been contemplating Kay's request for no service, and I kind of find it intriguing, and a bit sad for her family and friends. I kind of like the idea of a "wake" or a party of sorts... Just rambling thoughts and questions.....
  21. Rest in peace, Kay. Thank you for sharing yourself w/ us!

  22. Head. Wall. Bang. bang. bang. bang. b....

  23. Candy Crush Saga cheats!

  24. I always give them a stuffed animal to sleep with. It gives them something soft and cuddly to curl up w/ and they don't feel alone. I also throw in a chew toy, in case they wake up and need to chew on something. And as others have said, don't respond to the barking, they'll eventually settle down.
