    Ole Miss? :confused3

    That’s three out of four 5-12 matchups ending in and upset.
    On the upside, I correctly called the other two upsets in that group.
    On the down side, my West-Bracket is now even more of a mess.

    DD6 did. Her Elite 8 and Final 4 are all the top seeds but she did pick a few upsets. If Valpo and St Mary's had won I would have started a 900 line to make money off her prognostications.

    Depending on which of my brackets you look at I'm doing pretty good. Lost none of my Elite8 teams so far. It will still look like carp by the time Monday comes.

    Thanks so much for al the prayers and well wishes today! It meant a lot to me and Shari and when I told Ethan about everyone who was praying for him today he smiled! It took a little over an hour to do everything. He only had one meltdown back in his room after the nurses broiught him back. He refused to cry in front of anyone. he has the foam packing in his nose that will disolve. He has yet to ask for anything for pain.

    This is the before shot ;)

    My child downloaded a new app - plumber crack. If it wasn't explanatory enough, you can play the game by throwing ice at the butt crack. Maybe Disney IT can hire these people to work on their website. :confused3

    Are you watching Georgetown?:confused3 They are about to lose to Florida Gulf Coast. I think whoever is doing the seedings for the brackets needs to be fired.:mad:

    Prayers for DW and your family. I does get better with time. I lost my grandmother a few years ago and it took me a long time to get there, but every day will make it a little better. Grew up with her right next door my whole life.

    Not sure if it will help, but for me it was remembering all the things we did together over the years and the joy she left behind in our family that helped me feel better.

    Students at Harvard didn't even pick Harvard.


    August is a good month to be born i guess. Mine is the 24th. But that is our leaving day :sad1: so we are celebrating on Friday.
    You are not allowed to tell him about maidens until August 25th when we are safely back in Texas.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. Prayers for you and yours.

    We just bought discount tickets for Disney on Ice when they come to Austin on May 16th.
    I get to give my youngest DD her Disney treat as a birthday present cause she doesn't know we are doing to the world in August.

    Great present. I bring DD over Christmas break every year as her present from me. We take the train into Boston, afternoon show and a nice dinner and then head back on the train. Pretty sure this will be a tradition every year. This year was year #5.

    Very sorry to hear about the loss.
    Wish we could fix it, but prayers are being offered. That we can do.
    May a time of healing not be too far in the future.
    Check back in when you can but don’t worry about it,
    we’ll be here when you get back.

    Family first. Take care.



    Lost to… :sad2:

    Yup, I was tracking that one. My word…
    My Elite-8 are still in tack (for now), but that’s three gone from my Sweet-16.
    Yesterday was a much less frustrating bit of viewing to be sure.

    Shoulder is still in pain but manageable.

    Yahoo seems to have deleted me from the group so I can not access my bracket. Maybe it is their attempt at the mercy rule. My bracket looks something like this right now...

    At least I don't think I am alone. A plus is that Florida won big.

    That should have been the name for my bracket entry! After Pitt lost, I decided to root for Georgetown. I was a big fan in the early 80's during the Ewing era. Well, it didn't work out for me then when they met Nova and it didn't work out for me today. Maybe I should just focus on rooting for the #1 seeds.
