Today starts MC's second semester in college. While almost all of his classes are from home, he is going to be spending a large chunk of time almost every day at the school for his eSports practice. It does make me nervous, but there are protocols in place. Everyone on the team had to take… Continue reading More Frozen Fog Spikes

We finally got word that MC is NOT required to live on campus next semester to meet his scholarship requirements. We do still have to pay half the tuition, which I'm not a fan of, but I honestly do not care if it means he can be at home with less risk. I never understood… Continue reading Finally!
I'm taking advantage of what might be my last no contractor day before Christmas that isn't a weekend and getting the last little bit of needed shopping done today. I'd rather not, but there are a few things I need to get that aren't easy to order and that Hubby can't get for me, so… Continue reading Bug Bitten
MC made his college eSports team!! Sorry! Just needed a moment to yet again brag on my awesome kid. 😀
Not To Brag…
Okay. I'm totally going to brag because I need to focus on something awesome. I've mentioned that MC was invited to become a TA for his computer programing teacher. Originally, he couldn't and get paid because of financial rules, but he is going to be able to do it as a volunteer next semester instead… Continue reading Not To Brag…
Home For The Holidays
I was given this year's nutcracker last night! Hubby had started giving them to me early so I could enjoy them the whole season. Some years I get them earlier than others because he cannot stand to hang on to it after he gets it. This showed up on the porch yesterday afternoon and it… Continue reading Home For The Holidays
School Heading Into Fall And Winter

Ideally, I'd still prefer MC do be able to do his part from home, but… Continue reading School Heading Into Fall And Winter
When you live in an area like mine with lots of distance between school and home and the stores along with almost no public transport, getting your driver's license is one of those major milestones for a teenager. Both MC and BG had circumstances that pushed back their ability to take their test on or… Continue reading Driving Force
The Daisy’s In The Details
You can tell that MC is finally starting to settle in because the number of texts to one of us at home have dwindled. At least one of us still hears something every day, but they are much fewer than in the first couple of days he was there. It helps tremendously that he finally… Continue reading The Daisy’s In The Details
So Not Helping!
We all know that this whole going off to college thing for the first time is hard enough on a normal basis. For both the student and the parent. Throw a little pandemic into the mix and it is an ugly, stressful mix of WTF. So why in the hell, with all of that going… Continue reading So Not Helping!
