I wish I could figure out what's going on with my DSL. Every so often I go to a page and it pops up the little connection window. HELLO??? I'm already connected via DSL!Leave a comment
Anybody have a clue?

On a whim I took the Meyer's-Briggs Personality Test this weekend. It said I'm an INFP. Not terribly surprising... The kids also took it and turned out very different from me... although, not far off from what I expected.2 comments - Leave a comment
It was on my computer when my SO came over and he came out as ENTJ. Imagine my surprise when I find that's the natural partner for me.
Although, truth be told, there are times when our differences drive me completely batty!!!

Still haven't gotten the full story about Terry's incident. Grrr... Coach never got back to me. I emailed the director of players and coaches and he hasn't gotten back to me.Leave a comment
I ended up calling the assistant commissioner and he said he'd get back to me but it may be tonight before he finds out what happened. He took down my name and number and my son's name and the name of the other kid involved. He said he hadn't heard anything about it yet. Amazing since disciplinary action is supposed to go through the board (and he's one of the three required members). I told him I'd gotten conflicting stories about what happened and that concerns me.
My SO was COMPLETELY unsympathetic. Grrr. He didn't want Terry in the league in the first place when I was having problems getting the coach to give me contact information for other players so I could see that Terry got to the games/practices.
I'm really bothered by the fact that twice I've gotten from the coach that Terry had to be "physically removed" from another player, yet none of the first hand reports have included that detail. In the first instance, I talked to the two assistant coaches when it happened and neither one mentioned it (and my SO who was there at the time I talked with them doesn't remember it either). In this instance, I haven't gotten any report from the assistant coach who was there and the two first hand accounts both make that story unbelievable. Although... my SO thinks the other kid may be trying to protect Terry. *shrug* It doesn't make much sense to me. If Terry had really physically attacked the other kid (and not just thrown a[n empty] bag), why would the other kid say it was "no big deal"???? I've had Terry physically attack me, and I know if I were smaller it would scare me to the point where I wouldn't want to be around him and wouldn't say it was "no big deal".
Someone, PLEASE, tell me I'm not crazy.

Well, where I live three major supermarkets have had strikes in the last few weeks. Well, technically, one was a strike and the other two lock-outs...
I won't cross the picket lines, but the three nearest grocery stores are ... you guessed it ... the ones on strike. This week the union decided to pull the picketers from one of the stores, so I could walk to go shopping again! Good news, eh? LONG LINES! Bad news!!!! It took over an hour to get the shopping done between not knowing where things were in the store... the service counters all being closed (well, duh... you won't LET your skilled employees work)... not being able to find things cuz they just didn't have it in stock ... and, oh yeah, the 30+ minute wait at the checkout counter.
GRRRRR! Why can't the stupid corporations go back to the table and give the workers what they deserve????

You, or any other parent (please pass the word) are no longer responsible for Terry Rockwell.
Wow. What a relief. I thought I was responsible for Terry full time! Goddess knows his other parent has already decided e is not responsible.

Ok... more ranting about soccer.Leave a comment
AYSO claims it's for all kids...
What they don't tell you is it's for all kids who have money, a two parent household, a car, less kids than parents, and no disabled kids (unless they are severe enough to get shunted into the disabled program).
Everyone plays ...
Unless you have to miss practices because your ride didn't bother to show or call, or because you have more homework than time. (That is, my son was told he wouldn't be allowed to play in the GAME after he missed a couple practices... not that he wasn't allowed because he didn't show up to the game.)
|Nov. 1st, 2003 07:10 pm Family stuff|
I was browsing some pages and found someone talking about her mom wanting to give something of her grandmother's to someone outside the family and it made me think.
My grandparents (the ones who raised me) both passed away this spring. I talked to my brother about the estate cuz (a) I could use furniture (which my grandmother had promised when I moved! grrr) and (b) there were some things I wanted to remember the family. There ended up being a big thing over the whole estate (my brother getting the lion's share of everything and me.. basically nothing) and last I heard my aunt was taking care of everything. That was months ago. I haven't really heard from any family since.
Now, I want the little things. I wish I could share some of the memories with my kids. *sigh* I miss those times and the memories. It's really stupid stuff, but ...
I remember when I was about my kids ages (give or take), I spent time with my grandmother's beginning braille books trying to learn it myself. My brother said they found the books. It's not like anyone else in the family has any use. Then there was my grandfather's geneology. I remember sitting in his study copying down his charts. And I've been told no one in the family is interested in carrying on his work. HELLO?? What am I? Chopped liver? (Ok, I know the answer my brother would give...)
Come to think of it, when I was wrting this it reminded me of one break up where someone wanted to keep books because they might someday get read. HELLO? I got those books. I loved those books. (And don't get me started about the books that were given to me by another person before I even got involved in THAT relationship!)
Ok... I'm swinging from melancholy to pissed. Goddess! What a dreadful day! *soft crying*

I talked with Terry and the kid he supposedly attacked. Both say Terry just threw his bag and it was no big deal.Leave a comment
Terry told me that he wasn't even in the car at the time and that the coach grabbed his wrist and pulled him away from the car and told him he'd have to find another ride in the future. (Fine, I could deal with the other ride...)
I'm not sure what actually happened or what to do about it. Especially if Terry's story is true.
