Haven't posted for a few days, not anything earthshaking going on, just busy......the job hunt continues,and yesterday went to Dustin's track meet. In a nail biting moment, he 'scratched' or 'fouled'(out of bounds) the first two of three throws in the shotput.......and then on the third and final throw....he throws the farthest and gets a FIRST place! Wow, talk about operating under pressure,lol.
Unfortunately, he then didn't even place in the discus....I sometimes think he's feeling the pressure of going all the way to state finals last year as a junior and thinking he has to do it again this year because now he's a senior?And his dad keeps telling him to just ENJOY this last year, and quit putting so much pressure on himself.
Speaking of his dad...he brought the house down with laughter on Easter.Emma and Ben brought April a basket, and Emma brought me a copy of 'Chicken Soup for the Grandmother's Soul".....Tony glanced at it, and asked 'are there any other recipes in it besides for Chicken Soup"....we were all rolling laughing, and I explained that it was a series of inspirational books, NOT cookbooks. Sadly, I fear he's spent too much time around all of us nuts:)
SIGNS OF THE TIMES....While I personally think that homosexual families are wrong(and this is largely based on KNOWING one, and the feelings of the woman's children that they HATE the fact that their mother openly lives with her 'partner') I think what disturbed me most about the gay families attending the Easter egg roll at the White House was that they couldn't just ATTEND......even Tony, who is pretty much a poster child for 'conservative redneck':), said "why couldn't they just attend, and NOT wear rainbow colored leis and bracelets to trumpet the fact that they are gay families?did all the 'traditional' families wear matching necklaces and bracelets to trumpet the fact that they are traditional families?"(ARticle about it here)
