I wonder who you have to kill to be a chaperone on that European trip?
Hebe's Rome/Italy/Greece trip is having difficulty getting a chaperone (trip is free for chaperone). A female one. How's your wig and make-up collection?

She requested me not to volunteer of I'd be it in a flash.....

Bummer, monster, can't you beg, threaten, or bribe her?

Nah, this is her big senior year freedom trip. I get it. As a stay-at-home parent I've chaperoned pretty much every trip there is, especially overnight ones, because there are so few people who have the time. I'm really not a helicopter parent/party-pooper, but just knowing your mom is there and other kids knowing that's your mom can put a downer on it, no matter how cool she is

I'll only volunteer if the trip won't happen otherwise.

I know the feeling, my mother was on every trip for school and 4-H. The other kids do treat you differently.

Well I had lunch with Stormy today, At a place of her choice, and she ordered something to go for her BF. Well that lunch cost me about 60 bucks. Any wonder I stay my butt at home?

She has also been inducted to Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society! What ever that means?
She also told me that she had been diagnose with Dysauntomia. What ever in hell that is. I smell bull shit, but what do I know?

Dysautonomia is an umbrella term used to describe several different medical conditions that cause a malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System. The Autonomic Nervous System controls the "automatic" functions of the body that we do not consciously think about, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, dilation and constriction of the pupils of the eye, kidney function, and temperature control.
Doesn't sound like fun but her case may be manageable.

No. Forgot about it. After my knee went south I wasn't the the best of company
She's suppose to bring me meds from bigbox after school. Laying in the cold floor is not good for old bones

She told me yesterday that the folks at Mayo in Fla., when she was 12 yrs old said that she might grow out of the Dysauntomia.
