Links and thinky thought

put  my think in your butts [essene]
Walking Dead's recap is up, as well as all of the other goodies on HDJM like Buffy, SPN, Sleepy Hollow... As always, you can follow HDJM's twitter, FB page or Tumblr for updates or follow the writers' twitter/tumblr. Here's my tumblr/twitter, for example.

Thinky thoughts:

  1. I had my final parent-teacher conference for my son today and he'll be graduating before Thanksgiving, due to me keeping him busy with school all summer. I. It's just that. Graduating. Done. Finito. Sooner than we thought. It's fine that he is, I'm just coming to terms with being a mother old enough to have a HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE. =|

  2. And we're stepping up his college application (nursing schools!) stuff with the help of my kid's team at the new school (who I love)

  3. I got a comment to HDJM today on a years-old Hoarders post. It was the Hoarder's daughter. I just want to say how grateful I am to everyone supporting the idea of HDJM's motto: approach with love for something, even if it's wacky and silly, because where else can you go to talk about something where you know you won't fall headlong into wank? She felt comfortable enough with the recap and the discussion in comments to talk about her feelings and give me an update on her mom. (Not good.) I love that the family members and friends who have commented over the years knew that they could talk about their feelings - even when they were angry, upset, heartbroken - on HDJM and we wouldn't judge them for it.

That felt pretty good, I have to say. And now back to this Anne of Green Gables/Teen Wolf fic that I am MADLY IN LOVE WITH, omg. /dork

well, of course, your son is extremely young to be graduating from H.S. and you are a very cool Mom.

*tight, proud-mama squeezes* I'm very happy that he's ending a chapter of his life that has been nothing but misery for him and moving on to something he's so excited about. <3 <3 <3

HS Graduate! Woohoo! How old is the boy? It seems hardly possible.

I went to a college with a huge nursing program. I was on the nursing dorm for three years in a row and they worked harder than the pre-med people. It is not an easy degree.

He'll be 18 in January. :D

We're fortunate to have a major university with an excellent nursing program close by, as well as a smaller nursing school a bike ride away. He's so excited to get going, and I'm so excited that HE'S excited! <3

Stoney, he is a grown up type person.

This obviously happened overnight.

I am so excited for him and for you! Nursing is hard work but so rewarding.

Last year before all the crap that happened happened, he was in his high school's nursing program, working in the afternoons at an Elder Care facility, and LOVED it. They loved him, too. He definitely knows what he wants to do in life, and I'm just beyond happy that he's able to make it happen.

There's really nothing better that having a kid who has a passion for something and wants to go for it. Makes everything so much easier.

I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER that your son is finished with high school. Congratulations to him. :)

(I cannot picture an Anne of Green Gables/Teen Wolf fic, but this is probably because I haven't yet seen Teen Wolf. And I haven't drunk the kool aid...)

We're almost there! One credit left. In reading. Yeah, he's gonna blaze through that in a matter of days. :D

(I am SO EXCITED FOR THIS STORY. It's ridiculous how much fun I'm having recasting Rachel Lynde, Josie Pye, Ruby Gillis... If you were curious, google Stiles and Scott brotop - that's my Anne and Diana. :D)

What? Graduating high school?

ALL THESE KIDS KEEP GROWING UP AND I JUST STAY THE SAAAAAME!! *shakes fist at sky*

This is a problem, Stoney. You need to find a vamp, stat, so you can turn him and he can be forever the same age he has been since I started following your blog (...which has been like three years, so that makes him fifteen for eternity).

*spits on his head* PTOO! PTOO! TOO SOON! /ancient spell

15 for eternity, gotcha. He sure as hell didn't eat as much at 15 as he does now! :)

(FTR, he IS graduating early, not in May of 2014. But yeah. TOO SOON.)

Oh my goodness, how? How can he be a nearly-high-school-graduate? I feel like there was a violation of the time-space continuum, is how!

He's going to be AMAZING in that program/that career. Ah-may-zing!

It's so touching to hear the daughter of one of the people featured on Hoarders showed up. I'm so sorry to hear her mother isn't doing well, but yes, at least her daughter can find some respectful treatment of her mother's issues at HDJM. <3

In completely different news, I can't wait for Sleepy Hollow to return from its baseball-enforced hiatus!! I want my petite BAMF female lieutenant reunited with her raised-from-the-dead eidetic-memory sexy professor partner!

CLEARLY THERE HAS BEEN A VIOLATION OF SCIENCE AND PHYSICS FOR HE IS ONLY EIGHT YEARS OLD. D:

I do think he'll thrive in a more adult/career-centered environment. Public school hasn't been kind to him, so getting him through it faster was definitely the right decision! <3

One of the things I loved about the show Hoarders was how EVERYONE got treatment, not just the hoarder. Their children and other family members/loved ones were all brought into therapy, and when the doctors saw that progress might be too much to hope for with the hoarder, they turned their energy to the family. Some people finally gave voice to their thoughts and feelings after a lifetime of bottling it up. Man, I wish the show hadn't been cancelled. :(

I CAN'T WAIT, EITHER!! We're catching up on Sleepy Hollow so I can enjoy the fun fandom with you. <3 (Ooh, and I'm emailing you some info to help you continue spreading your awesomeness.)

Tell him congratulations from us on his graduation! Nursing sounds like such a fantastic fit for him. He has so much empathy and compassion.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
