    Favor my kids in these things. When I called him on it he said he didn't do it. When k said I saw him he said 'well, you're wrong." And he just stood there and gave me the most insolent look I think I ever have seen on a kid's face. I'm a little creeped out. Can't call the parents to get him bc they are KRH at work.

    Turned out she tested well enough on a standardized state test to get into a program called Duke University TIP for gifted students. She is so proud and this was honestly not anticipated. She wants to put a bumper sticker on the car for TIP and I have NEVER liked those things BC they seem obnoxious and tacky. I confess I have always made fun in my mind of people who have them on their cars even. Should I do it for her tho since it seems to mean a lot to her?

    he's been taking regular meds since then too. His cardiologist gave him the ok to have sex again a month after the attack. He hasn't touched me more than 2 or 3x since though (been over 2-1/2 yrs now)...he's not even really affectionate towards me anymore. I know the reason is because he is afraid of having another attack (although he gets angry and denies this when I tell him this)...I love him very much & understand, but I am also very lonely and didn't expect to be celibate at only 44. what to do? Please don't say cheat...thats not an option here!
