There's something to be said for well-rounded, too.

Tom Glavine, who will be in the baseball Hall of Fame one day, was drafter in MLB and in pro hockey - by the LA Clippers, I think.

He chose baseball. He grew up west of Boston and said he always just played whatever sport was in season. But he got rich from pitching with the Braves.

I took YDS to the doctor this morning because his temperature was back up to 101.3 when he got up.

She thinks he has walking pneumonia.

Poor not-so-little-anymore guy.

They called a prescription for Zithromax in for him, and we'll go pick it up in a little while. He needs to go back next week for a followup.

The good news is that it isn't contagious.

That's the norm for collegiate cheering at your big schools with winning sports programs.

Oh yeah, the school had basketball and football and baseball and a marching band and cheerleaders and all that.

I went to several of the football games each year, and a few baseball games throughout junior high and high school. I never cared for basketball.

I just didn't have a lot of friends, and most of the friends I had were a grade younger. My only connection to the "in crowd" was being in the same classes with a lot of them. So I don't have many warm fuzzy memories of high school.

I don't really understand non competitive sports for older kids. I mean, there is a winner and loser, right? So, its still competitive. Its just not select teams? Travel teams in our area would be considered select, where you would have to try out for a spot on the team.

For now, we're able to balance out all of the kids sports and other activities and we'll continue to do that as long as possible. Long drives around here are just a part of life. *sigh*

DD has an indoor game on Saturday and its a 35minute drive...that's a close game. There just aren't enough kids that live in the same town to have more than one school, let alone more than one sports team.

Your time there sounds like something from a movie--a happy movie, not one about miserable nerdy teenagers who become obsessed with evil cars that run people over when no one is driving them.
I loved high school. It was great. I don't recall having an "in" crowd like movies portray. We had a huge circle of friends and it was awesome. I still keep in touch with several of them.

We never had a football team, only basketball. Hello!!! This is Kentucky!

It makes me sad to hear you guys say you didn't enjoy high school. Those are supposed to be the best memories of your teen years. Sounds like you went to school with some not so nice people.

I had fun in HS. Had great friends. Got along way better with the guys than most of the girls. It was REALLY cliquey. I have friends I still see every month or so and have caught up with a lot more thanks to FB. IT's nice to see some people shared my same feelings even tho I never knew (R always seemed so cool and aloof find out he was uber shy and never figured a girl would be into him LOL) Some of the mean girls have mellowed.
I think I went to 2 fb games. No baseball or basketball games. A few wrestling and volleyball. We even had swimming, tennis, golf teams. Band and drama too. Maybe that is what really made it feel so cliquey. If you werent' one of those you were nothing.

My friends now that I've had from HS are almost looking forward to reunion. We do secretly hope tho that THE mean girl is so fat that she has to use a scooter to get around walmart. We now affectionately call that "scooter fat" and if we see people from back then and report back to the others someone always asks if they are scooter fat. We're horrible people BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Maybe I should have said Competitive with a capital C and in quotes? Yeah like your select teams. Here in the dense Bay Area, she's fortunate that there were leagues that played competitively but were not select. You didn't have to try out. They'd kind of try to play teams and put them into levels and it sort of worked. But you didn't have practice every day, if you missed one, nobody cared, etc. etc. The select teams you talk about are what we didn't do. As DD got older, we drove further, because there were fewer older women/girls playing at that age. The best had gone on to college soccer, I guess, and a lot just quit. But she could always find something going on.

I feel lucky. My HS definitely had the "popular" crowd but there were also a lot of people not in that and just doing their own thing. Most of the time, it didn't affect the rest of us. So they were probably off drinking on the weekends and none of us even knew about it and if we did, we wouldn't have participated. We had fun. We went to the games, had a blast, yelled our heads off, the popular kids were mostly on the floor either playing or cheering, I guess. LOL We didn't care. No football team, just basketball and baseball, but basketball games were close enough to walk to so we did that and walked straight home afterward! Didn't know any differently.

For the most part, the "popular" kids seemed happy to just believe they were superior and didn't bother torturing the rest of the students as we see in the movies and on TV so much. And it was a small school too, so maybe the staff was instrumental in preventing that? I dunno.... The classes were split into five levels, two were academic and I was in the top academic class. Some of the cool kids were in there too but not all of them. Maybe that was part of it, being separated somewhat.... *shrug* I enjoyed my experience, tho I know it was far different from the experience of some others.

I think I totally psyche myself up for days I work. I don't feel too tired those days because I know I'll be running around at work until 10:30. But man today I can hardly keep my eyes open. Oh and when I say running I mean running. As soon as those doors close I'm running back and forth getting stuff done. Every place I need to be for pfresh is across the store from where I actually am at that moment.

At the very least I'm getting some laundry done and organizing my pantry (ironic huh?) but it's been a disaster for weeks and now we're out of stuff since it was so messy I didn't know the last of things were taken.

Oh yeah!!! It's amazing how automatic our tracking gets, then if we go away or something like that (job), and come back, holy cow! I know just what you mean!

That's a pretty good way of putting it.

Let me clarify. Some of them were the "mean girl" type but mainly I was just simply ignored by most of the people in my graduating class. Case in point: at my 10-year reunion, a girl I'd known since first grade told me, "Oh, you *finally* got rid of those thick glasses." I'd gotten contacts the summer before senior year. (I was kind enough not to reply, "Oh, and you're *still* really chunky.")

There's only one person who I miss occasionally chatting with; now he's a weatherman for one of the TV stations back home so sometimes when I'm at Mom & Dad's I see him on TV.

We probably should have kept him home yesterday, but I hate for him to be missing so much now at the end of the semester.

I was a miss goody two shoes & a brainiac nerd in high school. Definitely did not run with the popular girls.

Until my senior year. What happened is I entered the Miss Autumn Leaf pageant and was second runner up princess . Also was one of the yearbook editors.

Then I started to be included in the things the popular girls were doing.

I didn't hate HS. But my college years were way more fun. I was more secure in my own skin; and less feeling of cliques. Plus many/most people at college were brainiacs so that no longer set you apart as much.

Carol, are you out there? Was hoping things were going OK, that you weren't sick, and that the house situation was resolved?
