My son turns 18 in 4 days. He still has 1 year left in High School. He's my last child. I know a whole lot is going to change in this next year. Not just with him, but me.

I didn't go to the job interview. I called them and told them I accepted another job. I lied. The truth is I was too scared to drive there. I suck. I go see my Psychiatrist this week for my anxiety. Thank you for your thoughts.

I didn't look much like my sister when we were little--she had very dark hair and olive skin and I was very light-skinned with blonde hair and big chunky glasses. People used to have the balls to ask her if we had different dads. I swear, people really need to mind their own business!

In response to a confession. Wonder how your interview went. Did you get the job?

I haven't had a job since March 2017. I lived off my retirement and dh's money. I have a chance to interview for a position in Oakland, Ca tomorrow. I'm so nervous!!!!! I've never driven to the Bay Area by myself and I'm 47 years old. Plus the Warriors parade is the same day. Please pray for me. Thank you!

In response to a confession. This reminds me of when my niece was little. I was eleven when she was born and we were inseparable. My sister used to take me grocery shopping with her, so that I could occupy my niece by walking her around in a cart, while my sis did the shopping. I can't even tell you how many people, mostly little old ladies, stopped me to tell me what a shame it was that I'd had a baby so young. I got that all the way through high school whenever she and I would go places together. People need to mind their own business and quit being so damn judgemental.

In response to a confession. Yup, that's how it is here. People let their teens use the family boat and they party and then crash it. The busier lakes are well-patrolled by DNR officers, but the smaller ones, not so much. It's such a preventable tragedy. And, just like where you live, there's usually 5-6 a year. The parents know about the drinking culture, but it's like they just turn a blind eye, hand over the keys, and hope for the best.

DS23 and I were at the grocery store together with DGD1.5, and were mistaken for a couple. Again. This has happened before, usually when DS & I are out to eat somewhere together. Normally it doesn't bug me, I look young. Innocent mistake. But this time, I got the vibe that the real reason the woman commented on how much DGD "looks just like her mommy" at the store was because she was judgy of a May/December couple. Nope. I'm grandma. She's not my baby, HE is. And then, the inevitable..."Wow, you must have started YOUNG!" .... Uh, not really. Not that it's your business. Blatantly judgy comment. Nice. Move along, lady. Nothing to see here, take your judgy ass to another aisle.

I live in a state with a lot of natural lakes. Trust me, I believe you when you say that a lot of accidents are caused by drunk boating. We have at least one death every year in the lake right by our city. Usually it's more like 5 or 6 a year. It's really sad, but a lot of idiots let their teenagers borrow their boats for parties during the summer and a LOT of drinking is involved.

In response to a confession. Here in AZ, pool safety is talked about a lot more than gun safety. Even if someone breaks into your yard, if they get hurt or die in your pool, you're responsible. There are billboards and commercials almost year round telling you to watch your kids around water. On the flipside, we're an open carry state so you don't even need a permit to walk around with a gun on your hip.
