i know there's a few of you with rising seniors coming up here pretty soon, or maybe school started where you live.

Or maybe do some of the core straight out of HS, but not be under pressure to choose a major (ds19's U has 56 hours of core so you could easily be eating away at that while soul searching).

Do you think that back in the 80s George H W and Barbara laid awake in their bed at the Naval Observatory (the location of the Vice President's residence) and asked each other, "What are we going to do about W--his drinking, drifting, and lack of direction. Why can't he get his stuff together like his brothers."

Yay conmama, you are learning that all the talking in the world just doesn't really solve much.

LOL let me know when you're going to drop that bomb on him and I'll have a glass of wine, too, and think of you! Can't wait to hear about it. It does show you've raised him well, though, from the way he acts around other people at least! Sounds like he did everything right after the fender bender. Justin is still paying us back the $800 deductible for totalling the car in June after he'd been drinking. We, too, are letting him pay some out of each of his pay checks. I think that really was a wake up call for him, though, He was very distraught that night and he doesn't drink much at all anymore; when he does have some beers here he'll voluntarily give us the keys before we go to bed. Hang in there. I can see some glimpses of maturity in Justin and for the most part he seems to be making better choices these days. I think your ds will get there, too.
