Birthday Girl

 My baby turned 10 this week, which is strange because she was just born a few minutes ago. She had a pretty low-key birthday, by choice: too embarassed to have cupcakes at school, too shy to invite any new friends over. We ended up going out to eat at a Japanese restaurant, which was a perfect celebration - they had never been, not that they remembered, and they were so surprised when things burst into flames. It was great. 


Also: Autumn is pretty here.  In Texas we don't have autumn.  I have actually been sitting at a computer screen for two weeks studying for my licensing exams (I passed!), so I was surprised when I drove down the highway yesterday and saw all of the beautiful colors.

Back in the Carpool Lane Again

This past week has been a bit of a whirlwind to say the least.  I have a full time job!  I'm going to work as an agent for State Farm, starting later this month after I've passed my licensing exams.  My kids are in public school!  They don't know what to think about it yet.  I have adorable photos of them in their school uniforms, but I'm too frazzled to download them from my camera! I like to use exclamation marks when I'm in this mental state!  I'm studying like crazy, like 9-10 hours a day, for these exams coming up, and life has been crazy and full of a lot of changes at once. 

My kidney doctor appointment went fine, no big changes except for some new medication to prevent kidney stones, which is odd, but I'm taking it anyway.  So.  A lot of things to be thankful for, a lot of changes all at once, and none of us are sure exactly how we're going to manage any of them.  But it is good, and I am grateful.
