JAG, oh my word, what a mess! I'm so sorry . . . not the way you'd pictured spending your year, I'm sure!
M2M, I hope you're LOVING Florida right now!
whip, you give me some hope--I was much like you in high school. I didn't have the best running season last summer. Hoping to do better this year . . .
Life is about to get really, REALLY ugly in our neck of the woods. Budget being released tomorrow--rumor has it that education is going to be cut at least 20%. I am afraid my program may be gone altogether . . . we'll just have to see. There's local commitment to keeping it, but if the cuts run too deeply . . .
Anyone have "next career" suggestions for me?

Sorry tle for the stress, that has to be tough! Did you hear about anything with the budget? Any plan B for you?
Jag I wrote on that other place, but I hope you get that mess taken care of to the least disruption of your family!
Hope everyone else is well!
Lots of things here. My Cardiologist is testing me for cortisol levels to refer me to an Endo. He says I can't be pregnant forever and we all know steriods are NOT a good long term solution but they are the only ideas we have until further testing is done. Cortisol= hormones= bloodpressure = why pregnancy helps me and why I am so bad when AF is near or the least bit dehydrated.
School is good. Still working hard and spring break is almost over.
S is doing well. She has some nice school friends we play with and do fun things with. We planned a Disney adventure due to an amazing deal online. She is super excited and with her lack of time understanding may get frustrating so I am having DD and her make a paper chain for a countdown. We also adopted a Chorkie from a good breeder who our hairgirl (for years) gets hers from. He is the cutest PITA and S loves him "so much"
Oldest DD just wasn't ready for college and I should have listened to my gut on that, instead of others, and had her work for the first year or 2 before starting college. She is doing poorly, doesn't "get it" and is now panicking b/c she is on academic probation for her GPA and if she doesn't excel she won't qualify for student loans again. So she has loan debt, no degree anytime soon, no scholarships, the job market here in town is nil....and she is only 19. I am hoping she finds a path best suited to her abilities, but she is not showing the maturity or reasoning for a future. I am hearing alot of "I don't know". She's so book smart it is frustrating to me why no following thru on a plan.
My younger one is doing very well in tech school for high school, has internships coming, is the school news anchor on the tv in the morning, and is competing next weekend for regional in that field. I am excited for her. She also as chosen as the "Senior Face" of her area school with a photography company.
She is very strong and faces much at school for going against the norm and the "welfare mentality" path that so many choose. I am proud of her. Logic and reason at her age versus peer pressure and abstract thinking is very rare.
During all this I was already helping a couple who has a terrible backstory.
Those are the major things, and we are so very busy with new adventures, obstacles, and surprises that I miss the quiet days of coming here and seeing stories of the littles and what they are doing.
"That site" is good for a peek once in a while esp from Shawn and M&M and Amy.
Have a good spring everyone, some of us have Kindergarten to prepare for and I am so happy for the next new phase in life.
Life with SCHOOL kids ie: "big kids who now scoff at you (nuh uh...nuh uh) and not hesitate to tell you that their friends know EVERYTHING and YOU are wrong"
