A New Friend

This morning I was running with my son when he hollered back at me, "Look Mom.  It's an ass!" I couldn't discipline him for bad language because he was right...

Look who turned 13 today!

She's growing up so fast.  I can't believe all the changes in the 4 years that I have known her!
Wishing her a happy, happy birthday!!

The countdown begins...

All she wanted for her birthday party...

...was this kitty cake.  But, whenever she asked about it, I told her she wasn't even having a cake, and for some really strange reason, she actually believed me!  (When have we ever NOT had a cake at a birthday party?!)  Boy, wasn't she surprised when I came out of the pantry with it.  It was so funny!  It even had a delicious tie-dyed interior, just as she requested.  Thankfully, I know a really great cake decorator, Sally Smith of Greenwood, and she was more than happy to make it for us.  She does an amazing job!

Handy Li'l Tool

I still surprise my husband sometimes.  He brought this cute little gadget home to show me a few weeks ago, and I immediately asked him if I could have it.  He thought I was kidding, but I told him I wasn't, and zipped it into a pocket in my purse.  I have used it countless times since then, and tonight, I changed out the brake light in my Suburban.  Despite a few offers of help, which we refused, my daughter and I got 'er done!

Yup. That's just great.

I drove for over 20 years without getting a flat tire, but have had 3 flat tires on my Suburban.  This particular wheel has gone flat twice in the last 6 months.  What's up with that?!
