    My 8 year old son scored 19 points in his Catholic League basketball game this morning. The team won 24-11.

    After the SB, I had accepted the dearth of athletic competition, aside from Zags B Ball, and saw that the Olympics are coming on! That will last the 2 weeks until Mariners spring training games start.


    WHEW!!! LOL
    It's not funny.

    Is it too early to start the “Beat the Gaels” beverage thread?

    Never! Start with a liter of your choice and you should be almost ready by game time!

    For all the hand wringing about the SDSU loss, I think the giant egg the Zags laid against Villanova in MSG in prime time on ESPN did more damage to the 2017-18 GU "brand."

    Committee members have long memories and they can point to that "no show" over and over again as they discuss where the Zags belong. And they will. I think GU has to win out (including the WCC Tourney) to get into the Top 4 in any of the regions.

    We're trying to make another tough decision about the boys' schooling. We feel bad moving him to a 3rd school in 3 years but...

    Basically our oldest isn't being challenged enough to the point he is bored and when he has nothing else to do he gets sent on assignments by his teacher (like walking a classmate to the bathroom who can't be trusted to do that on his own without goofing off...like flooding the floor, at 6/7!). They're also doing math his kindergarten class had already tackled last year at this time, we're talking single digit addition so it's boring, and I'm sure others are bored too.

    We were really happy with an open house we toured this weekend, although I hate that it's 30 minutes from us, and expensive. He just got into the gifted program at his school, but it only boils down to an hour of challenging work once every 6 days (and playing parole officer the other 5 days) vs. being engaged in a classroom all day.

    We also looked at their preschool since ours is closing and they had openings in the afternoon, which I couldn't do due to timing if my older one stays in public, but if we send him there too it's no big deal. None of the preschools in our area have openings and long wait lists, but I also hate to jump the gun with our older son based on something as trivial as getting little bro into preschool. I do think this other school is the type of challenge that they would both do well at and enjoy...but the guilt of moving him 3 times is really bothering me. I realize that most of the time everything evens out and just because you're smart at 6 doesn't mean you will be at 12, but it's the effort he shows at learning that I don't want him to become bored in school and lose that because it isn't rewarded (and that is happening now, there are quite a few good students in his class but the class has had fun activities taken away because of one or two kids acting up every week).

    I’m really bummed out today. Lots of depressing things in the news and I saw a dead body on my way to work today. I think I’m going to leave work early and have a drink.

    You might want to have more than one drink or two.

    How many posts were padded before this went in place? I feel I missed out.

    It has been in place since the GUB was founded in 2007. For whatever reson, mods don't have the same governor on their accounts. . .

    So, I work from home. Started a new business last year and its been tough, but thats not what this post is about.

    My wife also works from home for herself. She's an accountant. She works mostly for small publicly traded companies who need an accountant skilled in creating financial statements for review by the SEC. She has been doing well and she gets tons of referrals. She finally decided that she needed help. We hired a young woman this week.

    Its kind of weird because she's sitting at a desk adjacent to my wife's office in a room that is essentially the kid's play room. We have all boys so we have giant super heroes on the wall, the closet is stuffed with toys, a punching bag hangs from the ceiling and an electronic piano where our oldest practices.

    Also, my wife has decided I'm the IT guy. I was an IT guy a million years ago, but what little knowledge I have retained really isn't applicable anymore.

    Beats working for the man.

    We just started our little firm and we're operating out of home as well. Our new studio is in our kid's old room. The closet is still stuffed with her crap while we're trying to figure out where to file this and store that. It's going to take a little time to get this all sorted out.
