Barb135 "Phil is seldom right though, furry little *bleep*"  Oh my, you must be mistaken; I've relied on Phil for a good share of my life.....hmmmmm - maybe that's why I was disappointed all those years that winter lasted into April (or May).......... LOL

adgal I know Opus...but one can dream....sigh....lol.  Heck, we'd be lucky to get off with only 6 more weeks.  Last year my tulips came up the same day it snowed...lol.  It was actually rather pretty..ha.

AnnieBrooke Does anyone know why, when it is sunny (he sees his shadow) there will be six more weeks of winter, and when it is cloudy (he doesn't) that means winter is nearly over?  Seems counterinutitive to me.

specialmom Ha, funny AB.  I had one kid cheer and one say "ahhh! darn" when we announced the results.  I guarentee at least one of them will be happy in 6 weeks (not sure which one.)

He did it!!  My anxiety prone son had a trumpet solo in front of about 300 people at his concert last night!  He was close to a panic attack before but now feels on top of the world! Mar 07 - 12

AnnieBrooke That's so nice! For now, and in the long run too. You will be able to remind him of this triumph at other times when he is getting nervous over something.

Jade59 I'm so happy for your son!!  I think performing in front of 300 people for ANY 14yr old would be difficult, let alone one prone to anxiety.  I can just see the tears forming in your eyes as you proudly watched him conquer his fear. :)

specialmom Curfew, I had tears in my eyes. When the band director turned to the crowd and basically yelled his name as the soloist over the crowd cheering, I finally breathed and realized I had probably been holding my breath a while.  Joy for him, pure joy

specialmom AB,, that's exactly right!  It's a life lesson to find the courage to face your fear, stand up tall when you want to lie down and don't give into the fear.  My son yelled Buzz off to his fear with that trumpet solo and as an anxious guy, that's huge.

specialmom And thanks to you too Jade, just saw your comment.  It was amazing!  This is my son with the developmental delay that they told me would never attend school on his own without an aid!  It's been (and is) such a long journey!

The mom van is making all sorts of strange noises.  Taking it in today and hoping I come out with a penny to my name after. Feb 28 - 6

Barb135 Oh no, don't tell me fixing it isn't doing the trick...On the bright side, getting your kids from point A to point B safely is most important. Maybe you can find a "new, used" one that's less expensive than "new new", but acceptable and safe. Good luck.

specialmom I was thinking used.  I have my van fixed for now but also a list of 'to do's' and mileage that is creeping up.  It's old, my van.  (like me?)  It's a judgement call as to when to give up and start over. Glad the creepy sound is gone though. ha

Barb135 Ahh... At least you're back on the road for now.  My van is old, too, but it runs good, so we just keep going. It's always hard to know when it's time to give up on them; after you replace so many parts, it's like having a new vehicle... :-)

AnnieBrooke My son informs me that station wagons are now the thing. To me, that's the ultimate dull mom car, but he tells me my attitude is as old as the hills, and now they are seen as retro new. He wants me to buy a Volvo wagon. Hm.

specialmom Kids see things I never see.  Luckily my kids are not in the what's cool for a car loop but then this means they get upset when I say I might not get a van next time.  They don't like change.

Those of you who collect these for your kids' school will understand when I ask --  why do manufacturers put box tops for education tags in such inconvenient spots on the package?   Feb 21 - 0

We're expecting up to 9 inches of snow later.  Winter wonderland with a lot of shoveling.   Feb 06 - 1

AnnieBrooke Well, that sure bites the big one. Augie would be thrilled -- he loves snow, probably because we don't get it all the time. (Last winter at this time we got a dumping, but right now the daffodils are in bloom and it's sunny and 50 degrees.)
