I (heart) my new furniture!

Mom brought me down a "new" couch and loveseat this morning. I'm under orders to say that I love it, due to the great deal of trouble we went through to get it into my condo.

Let's just say that the truck was horrible, the HOA was ridiculous, the furniture was heavy, and I would love the new couch and loveseat anyway. Posted by Picasa

After only two years...

...I finally have pictures on my wall again! We're not allowed to put holes in the walls, so I haven't been able to hang anything up since we've been in the condo. But I found these wonderful removeable "hooks" from 3M, and I'm going picture crazy. It finally feels like home. Posted by Picasa

On the road (actually, just in the parking lot)

I said I wasn't going to do it. I was definately not going to be the one to teach my son to drive. And I've been saying that for the last two years, ever since he started talking about getting his license. As his 15th birthday approached, I started saying it louder and louder.

And yet, nobody listened.

PJ passed his written test this week, and received his driver's permit. So today, I took him out for his first driving lesson, in the old Toys-R-Us parking lot. He did very well, much better than I expected. He's actually almost as good a driver as he thinks he is. (I was a nervous wreck, but not as bad as I thought I would be.)

I'm still looking for someone else to take him out on the road... Posted by Picasa

We had such a good time!

The kids and I went to Orlando for the weekend with my mom and my sister's family. It was a nice little vacation. It's been years since I took the kids to Disney, and it was really nice now that they are older. The kids were able to go off and do the rides and things that they wanted to do, while the adults got to see the shows and the tamer exhibits without any fussing. Our only complaint is that we had to come home too soon. Oh well, maybe we can go up for another weekend sometime this year. Posted by Picasa
