    Not to worry you more, but on 9-11 all the airports were closed down - borders, too. I don't know if that will happen in London, but do prepare yourself that she may not be able to get out. Let us know when you are all safely together away from it all.
    Count your blessings!

    geek the girl, I'm glad your little sister is okay. That must have been a real scare for you and your family. I hope she will be with the people that love her the most soon.

    I'm glad you did. I don't have any words of support but from one mother to another here is a big cyber hug. Stay strong. Things have a way of working out.

    So sorry about your friends, Mantenna. Having gone through the same with my sister today, I know exactly how you feel. I'm sure they're okay, though. Keep us updated.

    *Hugs to Manny and Geek*

    Ok, sensitive story ahead: When I was a teen I left home because my mothers boyfriend had always been abusive with me. My boss suspected and allowed me to live with him rent free for the summer so I could save to move *also, it was better than losing his main employee* So anyway that summer My boss had to visit his family for several days and did not feel comfortable with me being alone in his house. So I told him I would stay with a friend. Well, I was young and had never been physically intimate with a boy before. The "friend" who's couch I stayed on for lack of a better word Molested me in my sleep and then wrote me a letter telling me about how great it was. He quickly became my EX friend! He was I believe, 2 possibly 3 years older than me.

    Fast Foreward almost 6 years... My 20 year old sister is now DATING him, even tho she knows how I feel and why. She told me over the phone "No offense but, at least he didn't do anything serious...and frankly from what I hear, you were asking for it" the Clincher? He has another girlfriend at college who is 6 months pregnant with his baby. And my sister KNOWS about that too! Classy Girl.

    OK. I needed to vent that. She is not on my favorite people list right now.
