already considered the scoreboard thing. have emails out to see if anyone else who knows how to do it is available (am thinking there must be someone -there are 45 swimmers and our kids have been swimmers for years, it's all pretty much the same once you know how...)

Beest is a firey hockey dad. No-one's going to diss his kid while he's around. That's why he always got to be the one going to Thor's practices when we had kid-hating-coach. But it's still a long drive.

This is how it goes: The trees fall down and you need a new roof and gutters. Then your brakes go - WHOA! - and now there's no hot water.

Still, it's better to be here, having this, than your best day in Afghanistan. Or so my MP buddy tells me.

ugh. seeing as the car isn't going anywhere, maybe you could leave the engine running and heat water on it?

Or I could just pretend I'm living in post-war London?


the brakes have been fixed and I'm getting a new water heater today....it just seems like I've got a target on my back.

Heard from her neighbor yesterday, who had it from prospective tenants, that her old apartment was not available because she was moving back in ....because the new boy had become abusive.

Oh fudge.

Crap.

I'm sorry that it happened. No one deserves that.

Ugh, I don't know what to say...I would have rather been wrong, for her sake.

Assjacket. You want we should send Guido?

I hope you're OK. I can't even imagine how you're feeling, though.

She's moving out, at least that's a moderately good sign.

RIGHT.... as far as I know jinx isn't dating. If I thought someone was hitting her, I'd be acting very differently.
