And The Winner Is....

ME!!! I've reached "major life goal" number TWO this year. You may remember that #1 was to row a double with #1 Son. We did that back in August. Goal #2 was to row competitively. Check that one off - I rowed in the Head of the Lafayette regatta in a novice women's 8. We WON our race! Woo Hoo!!! #1 Son rowed in 2 boats for his HS team. One came in third, and his other boat won their race as well. Here we are...looking really rough (well at least *I* am!) in the aftermath.

"Major life goal" #3 is to actually run a 5K race.
Yeah, I know.
No, I'm only on my second glass of wine.

She Was Arrested???

I just saw the report on the news. A mother was arrested for threatening to kill her children.

Obviously the officers involved do not have teenagers.

Name: Cattiva
Location: Virginia, United States

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
