Might have been the whitewater rafting. I was paddling pretty hard. Could be just life in general. I hurt this elbow in a restraint a few years ago.

I'm starting school on the 27th, and the wireless network card on my 10 yr old laptop decided to quit working. I decided it's not worth fixing, as I've been having issues lately with errors, and corrupted files. I think my hard drive will fail me next. Anyway, I found a great deal on a used laptop for $250. It was new in march, and is the same brand, but all the specs are about 3 times bigger/faster than my current dinosaur. Plus it is a 13.3" screen, which will be nice and light, and great for carrying to and from school. So my bf says, "What?? You're going to spend $250 on a computer right now?? We have about ten laptops sitting in the back at work because no one knows anything about computers and I bet you could pick one up for about $50." Um yeah. Nobody there knows anything about computers and I want to buy their garbage??? NO THANK YOU!!!! Does he really not know how little money I spend to have the cash to go buy it??? I know his spending hasn't changed since money has been tight for the last few months. I don't want to get into a discussion about it right now because our room mate is sitting right here...

Just have to vent, so I can let it go. We have a wedding to go to this evening. #1 son and DIL and grandsons will be going to the same wedding. They live a three hour drive from here and the wedding is in this area. They came up early to go school shopping. Well...I had invited them to come for Sunday dinner at 3:00 since the wedding is at 6:00. At 2:00 I got a text from my son saying that they were still shopping and would probably not make it for dinner! He didn't even call. He texted!!! I texted him back, "Your loss." we have been smoking ribs all morning. I have Mac and cheese in the oven. It will still be great, but I am mad. I know I need to get over it! I guess I am sad too because I love spending time with those grandsons of mine, and they love my Mac and cheese. :(

It's the parents' dilemma. Children's coming for dinner is often more important to the parents than it is to the children.

You got that right. It is more important to me. I guess he will realize it when he has grandkids.

Oh cr*p, Chopper. I would be really upset too. Or, more like furious, after all that work, and not seeing the grandsons.

Well...it wasn't any more work than we would have done for us, but have to wait until the wedding to enjoy my boys now. :(. I think I'm almost over it. You get used to it after awhile. It just sucks.
