It has been a very rainy day today and I was so thankful that I didn't have to get out in it today!!!!...Taylor only has classes on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays...Thank goodness!!...Some may wonder why I pick her up, take her to work, and sorority meetings..Well, she turned 18 in June and she drives quite well but she is afraid to drive...The traffic around here is crazy, but I told her that it isn't going to get any better...Meanwhile, her fears were increased when she was coming home with a friend one afternoon and they were hit by another car...So her dad drops her off on campus in the mornings and I pick her up...It takes a good 30 minutes to get there and 30 to get back and that is IF the traffic is good...So it is a hour trip...Then like tomorrow we will get back going on 2:00, but she has to be at work at 3:00...So I either come home and have to go back in 45 minutes or we grab lunch and kill time til 3:00...Then I literally make a running dash in the house to get Luke to sleep for his nap, so he can get at least a hour and a half of sleep....We use to have weekends free except for her working on Saturdays and whatever plans she has with friends in Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays that she needs picked up from, but now we take her to her sorority meetings on Sunday evenings also....It makes it tough with a little one in tow and trying to keep him on a schedule....But eventually she will get her confidence up...SIGH...Then I will experience the worry that EVERY mother has when their children leave the house driving themselves!!!

The house is smelling good!!!...Over the weekend I bought some new tarts for my burner....They are the first ones used this Fall season....I only use my burner during the cooler months and since we moved here in April I haven't used mine yet this year in this house....I got cranberry and red apple.....YUM!!!
I hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!!!!.....Jen
