The April & Clay love story

How We Met - Part 9Click the picture of Kramer and the blond chick to go read!

He finally got it done!  Geesh, you’d think he had a real job or something with how long it took him to get the next installment done.  I gotta say, I think I love reading these as much as you do, it’s so fun to talk through our memories together so he can remember all the details.  And to answer a question:

Yes, Clay really does write the stories, I do edit them before they’re published, but the writing and direction of the story is all him.

Driver’s Ed is not for the weak of heart

My oldest child, Ellen, is now driving on her own.  I’ve learned a few things while teaching her how to drive.

  1. I promised that I wouldn’t yell at her for her bad driving like my Mom and Dad did.
  2. I promised I would stay calm and not shriek that she was going to kill us.
  3. I promised I wouldn’t make her pull over so I could take over after she pulled out in front of two vehicles.
  4. I promised not to make fun of her inability to know where she is going.

I failed at all my promises.  I will not be making these promises with my boys, I’m just going to be honest and tell them I will yell, scream, grab the steering wheel and slam on the imaginary break that’s on the passenger side.

Thank God she is a sweet girl and can handle her mother’s neurosis.

Peggy in Tn!

Congrats Peggy you got mugged!

I used to choose the winner.

Peggy said, “How fun–a give away! I think we all have a slightly better chance here then we do on PW’s sight. :) Don’t you know if you let your baby drink coffee it will “stunt his growth”. (That’s what my mom used to say and I’m 5′12″ like you lol)”

I promise I didn’t pick Peggy because she’s my height, we just stick out in a crowd, can’t help it.

If you’d like to purchase a Steve Coburn mug for yourself or someone you love you can find them on these sites:

The Phoenix Gallery

Mr. Coburn and The Phoenix Gallery did not participate in my give away, nor do they know me.  I just love their stuff and am happy to share it with you.
