I'm thankful that we didn't get more snow yet,  we are having unseasonal weather though. Undecided

We should be getting the garden ready instead of trying to keep warm.  Yell

Are you thankful for anything today?  Smile

That is common with siblings, I have 4, we can get on each others nerves, but try saying anything about one of us...watch out!   Surprised

Well, we are on the downhill slide of 13.  She's 14 in August.    She is in 7th grade and I heard that one is the worst.   That said, she has had a great year.   I have always said she was born 30.   She goes to a school in a special accelerated magnet program for gifted kids.   She's crazy smart.   She's a nerd and has 2-3 other nerdy friends.   She laughs at herself for being a nerd.   But I will take my mature, precocious nerd, with very few friends, over teen drama any day.  

Also, her making her high school softball team at such an early age has also helped her.   She has a ton of big sister types watching over her.   They are a good group of girls and they've been good to my DD. 

How do my kids get along?   It depends on what minute of the hour you are talking about.   They can be best buds and within seconds are at each others throats.

13 is usually a turbulent age, how does your DD handle it?  Smile

My 13th was awful.   Undecided

Do your kids get along, Tracy? Smile

Yes it is unseasonably cold for here, it should be gardening weather.   Cry

We're having a city-wide garage sale this weekend, I hope the weather won't get in the way.  Undecided

How old are your kids, Tracy?  Smile

Is it unseasonable warm or cold for you?   We are right where we should be for now in the 70's.   This weekend is the Kentucky Derby and it's supposed to be cold (50) and rainy.   Gross.   That's terrible Derby weather.   At least it will water my garden.

I am glad I only have one ball game to go to tonight.   I hate it when my daughter and son both play on the same night.   I actually get to see him play tonight without missing her game.
