I don't know how those driving instructors stay so calm. God bless them.
Anyway, the girls are all out right now and my husband is doing some work in the house. He is still working on the radiant heat in the floors. He's hoping to have it finished up by this weekend. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, then we will actually be able to start looking at flooring samples. That will make me happy.
Well I am getting sleepy. Time for me go lay down and rest while I wait for the girls to get home.
Best of luck to your 16 year old!!

And to you too, when she's driving

J/K!!

My girlfriend's son just got his license today, and it made us feel old, LOL. We used to cruise around together when we got ours, many moons ago!!

Hope your hubby gets the radiant heat flooring done this weekend, as scheduled. How exciting!!

Sweet dreams, HmG.

Turning on the x games to watch while I try to go to sleep probably wasn't the best idea.

Good Morning, Dear Friends.

As we have now crested the peak and and begun the downhill slide, is it too early to start becoming sentimental?
Probably.
But perhaps it's because I'm listening to the Hollyridge Strings version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas as I type this, I just feel that way today.
{ sniff }

Oh, well.
Here's the count:
Days to the Season: 137
Days to Christmas Day: 179
Day after tomorrow -- the 2/3 Milestone to the Season will be here.
(Now, I'm really feeling sentimental!)

Still the humidity, punctuated by late afternoon/early evening rains.
It's starting to become a pattern.
I read 70 degrees here at this hour.

Will you have a Sensationally Sentimental Saturday, Serious Santa Supporters?
Surely!

I sent him a PM a couple days ago, but got no response. I have a phone number for him, but I hated to call and disturb him if his mom has gotten worse. I'll call next week if we haven't heard from him by then.

I feel your pain. Jacob will be 16 in September, but his driving skills with a learner's permit haven't really increased. I can't imagine him driving without one of us in the car!

Radiant heat in the floors is very cool! (So to speak) When I was a kid, we lived in a house that had radiant heat in the ceiling (which seems strange, since heat rises, but...). My brother and I shared a room with bunkbeds, and I was on top. It got plenty warm in the top bunk every night!
