Hey, head on over to my family's blog for a Mom-fest. It's her birthday. There are cute pictures and a mention of her legendary chocolate chip cookies.
In other news, I am continuing my campaign to teach people the proper way to drive through a four-way stop. There's one near Katie's school that she has regularly written off to the devil. In the last week I have had to drive through it a number of times and she's right - it is Satan's handiwork. People seem to just go whenever they feel like it. Today, for example, I came to a stop about a second after the person to my right, which gave her the right of way. Even if we got there at the same time, she still had the right of way. But she didn't go. I gave her a very generous 5 seconds and a wave and she still didn't go. So I decided that she was having a stroke and headed into the intersection. It wasn't until I was directly in front of her car that she decided that it was, in fact, her turn to go and proceeded forward, nearly slamming into my car in the process and angrily honking at me as I drove off. Last week I went through when there was a line of cars on all four sides. Bedlam.
Maybe I'll use my current status as a Woman of Elegant Leisure and Ample Free Time to stand out there and direct traffic. I've always wanted to do that.
