*My oldest (he is 16) got his driver's permit. It's freaking me out. I'm really not ready for my child to be behind the wheel of a car. And, I think I talked about this recently, but, many of his friends are getting their driver's licenses. I'm REALLY not ready for my child to get into a car with one of his friends behind the wheel. It's stressful! Seriously, I'm having major anxiety and control issues with this one. Any advice?
*Monday was our 18th wedding anniversary. We both forgot. Ooops! I'm even embarrassed to say that. Of course, we knew it was coming up, but we didn't have any plans. On the day of, I was at the mall buying my daughter school shoes, when I signed the receipt, I noticed the date. I called hubby and said "Happy Anniversary that we both forgot"....
*I have completed all my required continuing education courses that I need in order to reinstate my RN license. YAH for me! Because I haven't worked for eleven years, I got lazy and didn't keep up with the requirements to keep my license active. Luckily, it wasn't too much trouble to reinstate - I had to do 42 continuing education hours and a refresher course. But, I'm proud to once again be a licensed Kentucky registered nurse. I have started to look for a job. I'll keep you posted on my progress as I begin this (scary) new chapter in my life of returning to the work force.
*My parents live about 10 minutes from my house. It's nice having them so close; they are always a big help to us. They have a beautiful big house with a huge basement, gorgeous sun room, big yard and vegetable garden and flower garden....I love being at their house. This past weekend, they put their home up for sale and decided to move into a patio home. On one hand, this is great. I know they are tired of the upkeep of the big home and they would feel better about downsizing at this point in their life. And, did I mention...the patio home is in the front of MY neighborhood! My kids could literally walk or ride their bike to visit Grandma and Grandpa. The patio home is far enough up the street that we can't see each other, so I wouldn't feel like my space was being invaded. But, on the other hand, it really makes me sad. I'm sad to see them give up their home (which is where we always gather for holidays and such). And, it makes me sad to realize that they are getting older. They are both 72, and while they are in very good health and still get around fine, I can definitely see that they have aged in the past few years. It's a hard thing to face, your parents getting old. It makes me sad.
*School starts for our kids in two weeks. This summer has really flown by. Our kids are in the following grades: 3rd, 6th, 8th, and 11th. So, once again, we have three different school schedules to keep up with. This will definitely be interesting, especially if I return to work.
