  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. If you have facebook, here are some pics of the flooding in Wimberly, where Jann lives. Amazing that more lives weren't lost. https://www.facebook.com/rpmfoto/media_set?set=a.10153341096622224.1073741827.634622223&type=1&pnref=story
  5. MOM! I guess it depends on the individual, but my dh will be doing a happy dance. Me, not so much. Ds is graduating and I think dh is giddy. I'm a whimpering mess.
  6. I had the words to "When I get to where I'm going" put on the funeral cards at my dad's funeral. My son requested that song many years ago to be played at his funeral some day. Holes in the floor of Heaven is another favorite
  7. It really hasn't been bad for us. I know the pics out of San Marcos are scary, but even where he lives, it's been pretty much business as usual. Unless he has to work in SM, or is a first responder.
  8. Ds is graduating from high school this week, and had planned a TX swimming hole trip w/ friends. We are supposed to get more rain later this week. Trying to convince him that even his "toned down to one swimming hole" trip is probably NOT a good idea.
  9. We're good, but several of dh's family had to be evacuated this weekend. Luckily their houses survived, just lots of damage and lost vehicles and belongings.
  10. The majority of the rain hit the Blanco river (12 + inches) which feeds into the San Marcos river. Which is why they got hit so hard. The Guadalupe was still open yesterday, but the Comal was closed. Canyon Lake is back to normal levels which we haven't seen in more than 5 years (fed by Gaudalupe). When I went to bed Fri night, the lake level was at 908, up from 901 (909 is normal), and when I got up yesterday, it was at 913 or 914. We just have the normal street and road closures that we always get when it rains. And tornado warnings. Those have been fun. :P
  11. ^^^ 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.
  12. I assume what is going on is something just like this case: https://gigaom.com/2013/07/15/goodreads-hit-with-copyright-suit-over-fan-photo/
  13. 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.
  14. I love white kitchens! And I really love all the windows. It looks great!
  15. Ugh! I hate hairball season!

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

  19. 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!
  20. zimom- Congrats to your dd! I'm impressed w/ the 23 second drop in the 400. I love days like that!
  21. 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. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/20/mh370-two-possible-objects-may-have-been-found-in-australian-search-zone
  22. Sorry, meant Malaysian air control. And thank you, that does answer my question.
  23. 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
