    Well, am just about at my limit of dealing with adults who act like four year olds. Just need to get it off my chest. Just tired of listening to their pity parties and "I am not going to do that" to any type of resolution, or temper tantrums. Sure when you get into your own sorrow it is hard...
  2. Hobbies
    I am in charge of the craft portion of our next family girls' weekend. We have about a dozen women, ages range from 30s to 70s. Some are crafty, some are not crafty at all, and some eyes are starting to go - so it has to be simple enough for everyone. Not too simple though, I don't want...

  10. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I have a question, does any other high schools allow adults to tailgate with alcohol at high school football games? I am just curious if I am the only one that thinks this is morally wrong.
