Heh, Wisconsin got bounced in the first round of the tourney. I watched the game on my phone. They couldn't make any baskets.

You don't need an airline ticket to meet someone coming OFF the plane.

Does anyone here play Draw Something? I need people to play with.

I tried to play with a random person. That person would just write the answer instead of drawing pictures. So stupid!

1. Check good resale shops in your neighborhood. Also, if they have Plato's Closet in Seattle, that is a consignment chain which will be good for nephew beacsue stuff is trndier but still cheaper than retail
2.Good for you for (?)manning up and taking him Sunday. Its Palm Sunday and they will be reading the passion story most places. Does he have a particular denomination he wants to go to?
There are good resale shops. I don't know about Plato's closet, but I'll check into it. Thanks for the tip. And yeah, womaning up and taking him to mass. Catholic.

Cool thanks. I bookmarked it. I'll look at it later when I get a minute to breathe. My nephew is very bright, articulate, and engaging. Also VERY chatty... <sigh>

Coming from the environment you described, your are probably one of the few sober/un-drugged articulate intelligent adults with whom he has spent much time.
Since he has expressed a desire to go to services, perhaps there is a youth group or a Big Brother Club they can bring him into so he gets some solid male role models and he can develop friends not just from school. Being the new kid on the block in the middle of the year isn't easy under the best circumstances and his aren't the best.

The other thing is that your nephew might qualify for Medicaid as a child below a particular income level. In IL, if a child qualifies, his parents do too for as long as the kid is eligible. Each state has its own rules on that, but it might be a resource for your sister and for you to make sure he has all his immunizations, etc (that is the Mom in me talking)

ACK. Nick's oldest does that when he's playing video games. I watch ONCE. After that, I say "No, I'm not watching you play A VIDEO GAME."

"Aunt Mimi...I need my own laptop"

"Aunt Mimi...let me show you this cheat"

"Aunt Mimi...you know I made a firewall?"

"Aunt Mimi...I would love this little mini laptop if it was mine"

and on and on and on

He never shuts up! He's still at it. While I'm typing, as in right this minute!
