She's home again, though, awaiting a letter to give her a report date and location. Interestingly, that location could be anywhere, as there aren't many federal women's prisons. 29, I think.

    Grandboy will stay with spouse's ex and her husband, where he's lived his whole life, for maximum stability. Once stepkid exits prison, she and grandboy are moving ... in with us. She'll have 2 years of probation post prison.

    So that's my "why is this my life" update.

    My kid, on the other hand, is now attending ASU and doing well on all obvious fronts. So we'll take it.

    Great opportunity and adventure, but not a great way to dive.
    I think our dive class was several weekends. Classroom, then high school pool, then local lake.

    Sports is a great learning tool for work ethic, working as a group, being supportive of others, how to lose/win with grace, preparation/planning etc. but I think what's most important is for the parent to put it all in perspective. Like anything else it's a process. I always tell James "We don't lose. We win or we learn and it's not all about winning."

    I, on the other hand, was the complete opposite as a kid. I HATED to lose. My dad always reminds me that I yelled at him once when he was congratulating me on second place, "SECOND PLACE IS FIRST LOSER!"

    I was a little over the top competitive.

    So, yesterday a SJSU student was arrested with two fire arms and extra ammo.

    He was on his way to Homestead (my school) to shoot band students and any teachers he saw. Like many crazies he first posted his intentions on social media (messaged some kids) and the kids told a teacher, who in turn called the police. They arrested him as he was leaving the dorms.

    the kids say he graduated last year and he didn't have any friends. He felt like even the band kids hated him and that's why he couldn't make friends in college either.

    We talked about how differently this could have turned out if just one student showed him some compassion. We had a good talk this morning and this is in my culinary class.

    Interesting. I can think of one Emma's age (13).

    Teenage boys - and the problem is THEIRS. I agree with you, Freeds. I've never had an issue buying "feminine products" if asked to. Pretty obvious they're not for me; also obvious that someone I care about has a need for them - why shouldn't I be the one to buy them.

    I take that back - I had an issue buying tampons once, but it was after the fact. BECAUSE IT MEANT SUKIE AND I WEREN'T IN THE STRAWBERRY FIELDS GROUP PICTURE.
