My Life Lately...

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Found this on Silver's Blog the other day. I'm sure there are a lot of us out there that can relate to the above cartoon!

Seriously, Olivia is doing very well with driving. Although we only went on a "little highway" once and I need to prepare myself better for a return visit! I'll be glad when Driver's Education starts in a few weeks and the instructor can bring her on the major highways!

Enjoy your day!!


  1. I have an almost 20 year old son that has been driving since he was 16. My youngest son turn 16 in Dec. He still doesn't even have his beginners. I can't picture him driving though,LOL. He does want his license, so soon I will have two driving in this household...Thank the Lord for Driver's Ed!!

  2. Lois,
    This brings back so many memories. Why do you think I have all these grey hair LOL? And I earned everyone of them.LOL I still grab the dashboard when I ride with my children!!great Post

  3. Too funny, Lois!! I've got one more to go through this with, and she already thinks she's a Nascar driver!! YIKES!!
    Have a great day!!
    Sunny blessings,

  4. I'll pray for you ... you pray for me! :o) Katie just turned 16 and now is eligible for drivers training next school year. :o)
    Thank you for your kind words regarding my jewelry. The bracelet with the Army charm on it was bittersweet to make. Ronnie was a very much loved Daddy, Grandpa, and Husband. When he passed away he left a place in the hearts of his family that can not be filled.
    I created this bracelet for a friend to give to her mom, which is also a friend and fellow Sunday School teacher. I see her wearing it all the time and it blesses my heart, knowing that this has been a giant change in her life.
    Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
    Ps. When I posted the images I only pulled from a few of my custom orders, the ones that were closest to my heart. :o)

  5. Love the cartoon!!:) Pretty sure that's why I have to pay the bucks for hair color now.

    I don't miss those "white knuckle" days of driving with our teen "learners":) JK- our kids were all pretty good drivers and now are all safe drivers. Over the years the practice time increased a lot, which takes so much effort to do.

    I used to do most of it, but with the last 3 kids, hubby did most of riding along:) He loves teaching them to drive on snow:))- donuts(sliding in circles to learn control) in a big empty parking lot.

    ...while I would say,"hey, let's go get some donuts-Dunkin style!":)

    Thanks for the smiles this morning!

  6. I will bet that it is nerve-racking to drive with a new and young driver! Good luck to both of you!


  7. Oh how I remember the days of white knuckles and stomping my foot through the floor board. Alycia is now 17 and I enjoy driving with her. Hard for me to believe!!! lol!!! When I am tired I gladly give her the keys. I have three more years before Kacey can get her learners permit so I can breath a little relief for now but my time is coming again. You will look back and have some funny tales to tell. Alycia is always telling of how I would get louder and louder like I thought she was hard of hearing. lol!!!

    A good cup of coffee always helped me out after a trip in the car.

    Have a great week!

  8. Hope you guys have better days during these sessions than mine!



    PS so glad the WV is back on-yay!..had a hard time sending comments all day yesterday! I would have visited most of you if not for this-

  9. This post made me laugh so much Lois!! I am worried about Baby Kay driving her walker round the kitchen floor and wondering what she'll crash into, or drive over, or open next. But your post reminds me that this it the easiest driving to manage! Once she's old enough to ask for the car keys then I'll have real reason to breathe deeply and worry!! Glad to hear Olivia is starting off well!!
