My baby...

Wow, my youngest has her driver’s license.  I’m not quite sure how I feel about that.  On one hand, I’m proud of her and happy for her too.  She got her license younger than any of her siblings, I believe.  But on the other hand, everything she does is a “last” for me.  I don’t think I’m going to cope well with empty nest syndrome.  I may have horrified Dad because I told him a week ago that if I hadn’t had a hysterectomy I would have another baby right now.   


On the lighter side, today is Halloween and I dressed up for work.  I came as a UAL mechanic, since I’m the office assistant for that department.  The real mechanics loaned me all the stuff I needed: a mechanic uniform, a tool belt (with tools, but dang that thing really pulls down your jeans when it’s loaded up like that.  No wonder mechanics have plumbers’ cracks!), a flashlight, a hardhat, and a key ring with a couple dozen keys on.  One of the other employees said I was the prettiest mechanic we had, which may not be a huge compliment when you see our mechanics, a bunch of testosterone-dripping middle aged men.  One of the other employees said that when he first saw me he thought I was a real mechanic.  I’m not so sure I’m happy about that, see description of our mechanics above…

Musical breakfast!

So every morning I get up and fix Samara breakfast.  She's easy to please, she wants an egg, scrambled soft with cheese mixed in to melt.  Serve it on a slice of toast.  Well, our toaster is both cheap and old, so it was starting to not toast one of the sides of bread.  Carebear and Archie got me a birthday present and let me open it early, it was a new toaster and it imprints the bread with a Mickey Mouse face.  Plus, when the toast pops up, it plays the Mickey Mouse march!  Sort of reminds me of the little toilet we had for the kids when they were being potty trained.  As soon as they peed, it played "Twinkle twinkle little star."  :)
Love you!
