Pretty nice that Matthew gets some free-passes. :)

Shaping up to be a busy work-week. My big A&U study is coming back (we worked on this in some fashion for 6 months and it was horrible), so it will be a huge PITA to wrap this part up. The PD is a spaz. I used to think that this is just how things were, but no, it's her. All of her studies lately involve entirely too much reworking. Not looking forward to it, but, it is what it is.

Libby's NC BFF is flying in on Thursday, so we're trying to get the house and yard settled beforehand. It's challenging because I'm entirely too tired at the end of the day to do much. But I've managed to vacuum and mop so far. Dusting and decluttering is all that's left, so maybe I'll get to it. Or Libby will. :)

It's her last week of driver's ed, too. She informed me yesterday that since she drove with someone the other day who was behind her in driving lessons (lessons have themes), she didn't get to 3-point turn, so I'm up in her business about that. The only reason I'm spending $370 on a class for her is so that she parallel park and 3-point turn with instructors. That's it. Everything else the kid has down -- she's been driving since she turned 15. But, she's never driven with an instructor and that's what we're really doing here. So. If she doesn't get this lesson, I'm going to freakin' scream. She's missing Thursday because we have to go to the airport, and technically she doesn't need to make it up (she doesn't need but 6 hours of class time for TX and she had that the first week), but I'm going to make her make it up next week anyway. It's all good stuff, and you cannot be too prepared to drive IMO.

Had to get a new coffee pot yesterday. Honestly, I should have bought two. It's no fun going without morning coffee! I need to be better prepared. I'd love to buy a Bunn, but good grief. The day I spend $100+ on a coffee pot that doesn't also make espresso is the day I've gone around the bend. ;)

I was shining hubby's black shoes last night and discovered that his left shoe is tearing by his pinky toe -- he'll be lucky to make it the next few days. So, this week we'll have to get out and get him a new pair. I think we'll get two. Back in the day he always had two pairs of both black and brown shoes, but he has expensive shoes so that's fallen by the wayside. I think it's time to get back to that so we don't have shoe emergencies. LOL.

And finally, hubby wants me to take suits to the cleaners. Which would be fine if his hotel didn't clean his suits for us. He won't take them in. He can take in 5 pieces a week or some such thing, and he's never used the hotel cleaners. This man makes me crazy.

So, a busier week than usual for me. :)

Hope everyone has a good one!

Aw, the baby name tag is so CUTE!

I'd stay on Libby about that too since you paid for it.

LOL -- it's so crazy how many tags and tickers and such are out there now. :)

I think the last time I parallel parked was in 1985 when I was in driver's ed. I don't do it. I'll walk a mile to avoid it. I cannot recall the last time I had to do a 3-point turn, either -- so good on you!! Turning the Jeep is hard, and when you yank the wheel all the way, it makes this awful sound, I think because it's all wheel drive or something. But yeah, Libby has to have all of this down for sure. :)
