Dang, everybody gets to go to Europe, except us. The closest we get is “Busch Gardens – The Old Country.”
Colorado_mom – Glad to hear that your family seems unimpacted by the events in Aurora so far. I checked with my brother who lives near there and all is well. My nephew goes to movies at that theater sometimes, but decided to go to a birthday party for a friend’s mother instead of the Batman premier that night, whew!

Enjoy seeing your DD in Europe!
We have a couple of those words too… Minky
= Mean & Stinky (when someone purposefully does something really mean) Wuppity
= White & Uppity (it is a snarky, relative/context sensitive term that can refer to anyone from a rude 1%er to someone who will only go to the “good” Dairy Queen.
= Too tired to give a sh**.
YDS – Tell the truth, did you have a bag of Gummy Bears for dessert last night?
LAF – I should have sent D1 shopping with you this weekend. We received a pix from her yesterday of a pair of shoes with the message, “For my birthday, please?”
Her birthday isn’t until freakin’ October! DW and the girls are constantly swapping jewelry, clothes, bags, etc. DW and D2 went shopping together last weekend and independently picked up the same shirt. DW threatened to take one of those awkward dressed alike pictures with her when we go on vacation.
Tx5 – Happy Birthday to S3! I like the potential “Cat Fight” party theme.
ProudNJMom – I’ll “see” you on Sept. 8th when we show up with “Mom’s Mountain Mobile.”
Psychmomma – I hope all goes well on Tuesday for your D. Here’s an idea, get her to make a You Tube video the procedure.

We will be hearing the same from D2 when she comes home from DC in a couple of weeks. There’s not much exciting where we live, but we managed to raise 2 girls of whom we are proud here.

Both D’s have always been really good about talking with DW about boys. Me, that’s another story. In fact, they have perfected that “look” that says “<G#>, you need to go back to your office so we can finish talking.”
I tend to think that it is because they trust DW because she made such an excellent choice with her “catch.”
DW may have gladly traded with you when she got awakened this week by one of those midnight calls, where you immediately assume the worst, from D2. She was calling to say that “boy from school” took her on a picnic and gave her roses, but she didn’t have anything to put them in… what should she do? Yeah, that’s worth a midnight call to temporarily stop mama’s heart.
I knew I should have insisted on an all-women’s college. Is it too late to make her transfer? With the exception of ProudNJMom’s upstanding citizen DS2, I still refuse to believe that there are boys at D2’s school.
But I don't feel left out. D1 called me… “The ‘Check Engine’ light is on, what do I do?”, ergh!
In college news, it is that time of year again… Check your mailboxes… D2’s local scholarship was renewed.
