we are at 42 now, not suppose to get much past 60. Which is still a whole lot warmer than the high of 51 we had yesterday. I am hoping for some sunshine today.

We're supposed to be in the mid 60's for the next 4 days then up it goes into the 70's & 80's! Cant wait!

Only one game, the three of us will go. Our night time temps are still in the 30's. Highs most days are only in the 40's. Wakana is going to freeze here!

Hows the cleaning n organizing going Willow?

Willow you hanging with the Captain tonight?

No. I was watching a movie on Netflix. I'm not getting notified of activity in here all of a sudden.

I thought you were busy doing something. Whatcha watching on Netflix?

It was a mini series called 13 reasons why. About a teenage girl who killed herself. It really portrayed how cruel and difficult high school can be.

I read somewhere that theres even bullying in 1st and 2nd grades. I cant figure that. It must be atrocious being in high school these days! 

I wouldn't want to go back. I was so insecure and had such poor self esteem. I can't imagine what it would be like now in this day and age of social media and cyber bullying.

Me too. Id be easy prey. I've read several different news stories about children killing themselves because they cant handle the intense abuse heaped upon them. Its so sad.

It is sad. Erik had a classmate killed in a drunk driving accident- the only sober kid on the car, and another killed himself by hanging - about 1/4 mile from here. And his cousin killed him self too. So very tragic.
