Random Update

Girl celebrated her 18th birthday. My, how time does fly! She was only a wee little blondie girl just yesterday...wasn't she? In celebration of this momentous event she had her ears pierced again. It's a double baby. I thanked her for not piercing her pretty face.

I'm just sayin'!

I baked her a cheesecake. I brought her flowers. I was present in the car when we passed some dude picking something up out of the middle of the road. Something...dead...

Seriously, the dude picked up a dead squirrel by its tail.

Hope I didn't just ruin your breakfast or lunch.

Girl is in a holding pattern, waiting for school at winter term. She's working on that ol' drivers license and she just picked up a CLEP book and more music for her piano. Girl applied for a job...but hasn't heard back. When I suggested she phone them this week and just "check in" she cringed. Ahh, to be 18 again.

We are set to move into our new house (house!) at the end of the month. I am still appalled at the amount of junk we have. Seriously. It's ridiculous. We've made two trips to the Mission and friends of ours (hi Red!) came and loaded up our junk and took it to the dump. Yet, we still have junk! Eesssh!

Boy is doing swimmingly in Idaho. He requested that we send him some warmer clothes....and his capo....and his guitar tuner...and his harmonicas...and allergy meds...and snacks...but it was okay if we didn't send the snacks...


So I mailed him what he requested and some gummy worms, crackers, nuts, craisins, tea, and a couple candy bars.

I didn't have time to bake or I would have sent that too.

And I'm still thinking about kicking that running idea into higher gear.

And I bought a red chair.

And a cool picture.

All for the new house.

And I dream of paint and hardwood floors.

And a mortgage payment...

Happy Birthday to Girl! And congratulations to all of you on the new house. Despite the stress, it sounds like there is an undertone of excitement in it all!
