Re: Year One

Any trips planned for this year? You can always come north in the summer and cool off. A lovely 61 degrees here yesterday.

How old are the grandkids--getting close to school age?



No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA

We have a trip planned to the mountains of New Mexico for late August. We try to go somewhere cool about that time every year to get a break from the heat. It will likely be sometime in October before we see 61 the low, not high temp of the day. :P

The grandsons are 8, 3, & 18 months, so we've got several years to go before all are in school. All is not lost however, since my daughter has agreed to give her mom a little help starting in the fall by sending the two youngest to a grandmom's day out program two days a week. I think my daughter has determined it's better to do that than have her mother suffer from total mental and physical exhaustion, have a breakdown and be institutionalized. You familiar with Lynette's three wild boys on "Desperate Housewives"? That'll give you some idea of what grandma is dealing with.

Numbers is hard

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life
