Yesterday was a bad day for me, just feeling overall down and frustrated. So I left for dinner at my inlaws (by myself) while my 17 yr old was home w/ some friends. They were doing some fishing by a pond at our house. A little background on my son; 17, no job so no license, lazy unless properly motivated aka kick in the ass, but he's really a pretty good kid. Lots of friends, never disrespectful, easy to talk to and has really helped me out during this mess I call my life. Anyway, I am gone for 1/2 hour, literally, and my son calls. Apparently he took it upon himself to drive a friends car and got the car stuck on a tree stump in my yard. WTF??? So I leave inlaws, no dinner, come home and called AAA to pull the car off. The positive is that I don't think there is any damage but I told his friend to keep an eye on it, make sure nothings leaking, etc and let me know. Now, I know my son felt like an ass-and he should have. I gave him a lecture but I didn't ground him. I told H about it this morning when he called me and he was pissed cause I didn't ground him. The kid is 17, my H was doing a hell of a lot worse at 17. And he did call me, he could have called a friend w/ a truck and try to do it himself but he called me. So I tell myself that he knows he can call me if there's a problem and I'm not going to freak out about it (too much)! I laugh about it-not in front of him-and just shake my head. Could've been alot worse. Thoughts???

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
