think I caught son's cold. oldest graduates on Fri. going to be a busy week, and a bad time to get sick.

son made it though his AP exam and his SATs this morning. I think he's on the upswing. except for the rash he's developed. we're a mess around here!



What is up with your family? Could you be allergic to something? Did you change detergent?

Congrats on the graduation...lots of local college graduations going on today.

HAPPY KENTUCKY DERBY DAY!

I have dreams of myself smoking...one in each hand! I wake up struggling to breathe until I realize it was just a dream. Sometimes I think about it if I have a cup of coffee after dinner.....

Tell your friend to keep it up! I walked around with a pen or straw in my hand and ate lifesavers to get me through. My doctor said from xrays and listening to my lungs its like I never smoked at all, and I smoked for 19 years. A good site that helped me was www.quitsmokingsupport.com its good to read and post when you are having struggles with cigs.

his rash is on his face and chest, red but not itchy. I wonder if it's part of the virus. or it could be a reaction to the medication I gave him last night (new brand)

The medication sounds more likely.

Yes, and its probably not the effective part of the medicine, its probably one of the "fillers".

I agree, I think it was the medication. his rash has almost entirely cleared up.

thanks for the input.

Just watched a mother (or older sister) and little girl walking their
dog. Fairly good-sized dog. The dog pooped in the yard across the street. The older person made the little girl go knock on the door and ask for a plastic bag to clean it up.

I'm torn. At least they cleaned it up, but to me that took an awful lot of nerve to ask for the bag instead on bringing one themselves.

I'm pretty impressed with that 10 year old girl who stuck her fingers up the alligator's nose so he had to open his mouth and let go of her leg.

I've also heard that if a shark is attacking you to punch it in the nose and poke it in the eye and it will stop. But I don't want to be the one to prove that. Plus I am not a great swimmer.

One of my windows has a very large splatter of bird poop on it. Considering the window is close to two inches inside a screen, the damn bird had to be upside down on the screen and really let loose.

oldest son graduates tomorrow!!

we are heading out to western MA this afternoon to see the graduation (well UMass is so big the kids don't actually walk and get their diplomas so we will do some ceremonies and skip others) and then move all his junk back home.

should be interesting watching him sort it all before he moves to Japan. (please, please let him sort it all and not leave it all for me)

super proud of him for all his hard work. he's getting degrees in Japanese and Communication from the Honors College.

will try to post a pic here of me and the graduate. or would that take away too much of the mystery?

Thanks, mini! (May I call you mini?)

I am not a mother, but I have a wonderful mother whom I treasure.

Let's not forget those who are "like a mother" to us. So many wonderful ladies to be thankful for!

son is now a college graduate! woo! 1 down, 2 to go.

also, he found out where in Japan he will be. Kitakyushu. here is a map, cause no one knows where that is. (the map does not show it, but there are island(s) to the south of his island)



he is not looking forward to the humidity but he is glad to be working/living in a large city and not the boonies.

it is a large city, but nowhere near as crowded as Tokyo.

with the JET program, they set you up in an apartment (generally you move into the apartment of the person you are replacing). I think the apartment is furnished & includes some basics like pots, pans, dishes, etc.

before today I never heard of this city, so I will give you more info as we get it.

avg temp is 90 in summer and 40 in winter. humidity is very high in the summer, and they get a lot of rain. it is on the coast.

he will get the contact info for the person he is replacing at the end of this month. once he contacts them he will get more info, too.

so exciting! and a friend from UMass, who was in Japan when he was, is doing JET, too and she was assigned about an hour away from him.

Hey all. I'm sitting at a testing center waiting for Ver2 to finish her state testing, I'm supposed to be working remotely, but I am in a pretty bad place mentally and can't bring myself to do it.

Every time I think I'm adjusting to here, something cultural comes up and smacks me in the face and everyone wants to know why I can't get over it.
