FYI FWIW

  •  I still exist.
  • Work is extra special crazy at the end of a fiscal year.  I have no less than 20 projects in addition to regular day to day work.
  • Max is graduating in less than a week.  O.M.G.
  • I have a party to plan and if I don't get busy there will be about 60 people not eating.
  • Financial aid sucks and gives me the heebee geebies.  I've got to sign the papers soon.  It would be nice to understand what the hell I'm signing.
  • We have to make sure Max is ready to move mid August.  At least I get another trip to San Francisco out of it.
  • It is my goal to finish posting my honeymoon pictures before my first anniversary.
  • It is also my goal to have my name changed so that if I ever do get pregnant and deliver the baby will not say Forbes because how incredibly wrong is that?!?!  It's my ex's name!  
  • And speaking of trying to get pregnant...you should see the data I'm capturing about myself on the white board in my bedroom.  I love white boards.  There's like six or so columns for each day of the month.  I've never paid this much attention to bodily functions.  It's fun when it becomes DATA!
  • Data is cool because you can tell by looking at my (low!) basal body temperature the days that Kevin stole all the covers.
  • I get to go buy fresh strawberries from the stand around the corner so I can fill Sabrina's birthday cake!  Leftovers go to me as long as I eat them before Sam gets home.  He's a strawberry fiend.  I will save some for him.
  • Today Max takes his behind the wheel driving test.  After much stress and carrying on and on and on...he is actually a very good driver and finally looks comfortable behind the wheel.  I hope he passes and that nothing weird happens.
  • Even though I hardly every post here anymore and have been commenting less I still read every day.

Thanks for the update! Are you going to give Max the mustang, or the truck? Or not since he's moving up north anyway?

It's crazy he's old enough to drive and go away to school. I think I'm officially old.

It's completely crazy. I don't know yet about which car he's taking. Probably not the mustang right away since it needs some functional work done (like making the windows stay up). The third option is that Jeff and Melissa got a new car and may give him their old Jeep Cherokee which I think is a much better choice than the pickup. Overall Max wants the mustang though. And so does Sam. And so does Kevin for that matter.
