Re: Child labor at age 14

I've tried to have a rule that kids have to save 1/2 of their pay for their college education. It hasn't always worked.

Re: Signs of splitting up

I think people start to think they have to at least pretend to have an interesting, successful life to present on Facebook. People don't post things like being placed on probation at work, or being bored at home, or not having a huge group of happy, [more]

Re: Signs of splitting up

Here's the thing -- I should have known my marriage to old poop-head was a time bomb. But, I was pregnant, and I was in love, and I couldn't bear to fail at something so important. So, I didn't know. I found a steamy note from a woman in his pocket [more]

Re: New Car Fever Again

I was planning to buy a new car, and decided to test drive a Subaru in the dead of winter when streets were full of snow and ice, even though I wasn't going to buy a car until August. It was a good plan, since I need a car that can handle bad roads. [more]

Kittens - Ha!

As reported on another board, I sent the following e-mail to my kids on Tuesday:

We finally figured out why Sasha has gained weight. She had four kittens today - all black and white. Dad is threatening to sue the vet who was supposed to [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Anyway, I can't help but notice that you have surreptitiously removed three cookies from each package.

I think they did this because Efficient Cookie Theorists kept ignoring the last 3 cookies in the package, claiming that if they [more]

Re: Weekend projects

DD will be home (from rehab) on a weekend pass. I must keep calm and not act like I'm scared to death and be nurturing and express my feelings in a positive way. You get the drift. If I get anything else accomplished, it's gravy.

Re: because it is a contest

There was some hoopla in my little corner of the world when parents went to the school board and asked for a weighted grade point, so that if you got a B in an advanced placement (college level) course, you could still have a 4.0 average to list on [more]

Re: Last parent-teacher conference ever

I'm feeling kind of guilty. I'm celebrating the last of the conferences and the "other mothers" who have kids DD2's age and who are also going to their last conferences are getting all teary and emotional. I'm skipping around fantasizing [more]

Re: Last parent-teacher conference ever

What is a parent-teacher conference?

In grade school, it's an individual meeting (usually 15 minutes) with the teacher. In middle school, we had some conferences where we'd meet with the home room teacher, others where we'd meet with [more]

Last parent-teacher conference ever

The day has finally arrived. I will go to DD2's final parent-teacher conference this afternoon. I calculate I've been going to these conferences for 17 long years. With DS, it was always, "(DS) is a wonderful boy and very bright, but he doesn't [more]

Re: Siberians ..

Hardboiled owns two, and she occasionally posts about them.

I do! They're wonderful cats, and I don't seem to have an allergy to them.

Re: Kitten Update

Anyhow, I have found a very good way to discipline cats, or to stop unwanted behaviours, is to spray them with one of those plant misters.
That works extremely well.


It worked well with one of our cats. . .the other one likes [more]
