BECOMING CLOSER

Now that the boys do not live at home anymore (sniff sniff) my hunnie and the lil girl and myself get a chance to spend ALOT of time together. I had no expectations on how this would go. As it has turned out...we do everything together. At least once a week we all go out and eat lunch or dinner out and go shopping or just go "window" shopping. We really are having a great time. The three of us actually each have our own computers (my daughter has one but she wants to use my laptop so she can be in the same room with us) and we are constantly sending each other messages and jokes an pics and such. We are just being way tooooo goofy....

The picture is of my hunnie and lil girl at a restaurant called T.G.I.F at a mall near us. We decided to splurge on a huge lunch and spent hours just eating and talking. We really had a good time.

I think this time has been GREAT for my hunnie and his relationship with lil girl. When the boys were around they monopolized his time with fixing cars and racing. But now he spends alot more time with her and they run errands together and work on cars together and ride go-carts together. So they are becoming ALOT more closer which does my heart GOOD.

Now he is teaching her how to drive because in the lovely state of florida you can receive your driver's permit at the age of 15 (I personally think that is WAY too young). So of course the first thing she said when she got up on her birthday was " Dad- you taking me to get my permit now?" Now it is time for my grey hairs to come in droves. I cannot handle the fact that she can be behind the wheel of a car.

Well I just know we are in for more adventures together. I think in October- we might be going away for 4 or 5 days to north florida for a State Corrections Shooting Match and then hit all the OLD TIME flea markets that pop up this time of year. It should be GREAT.

Gotta go and watch some great poker on t.v.,....PEACE!!!

It's nice that time makes it possible to spend moments with all your kids as they need. Then it's nice to get some alone time with just you and hubby. Hugs Lanny

What a wonderful time for all of you, especially your daughter who gets some of that special time with her dad.

I had my drivers permit at 15 too, I thought that was a nationwide thing, no?
