Sometimes life is just a bummer

Desiree didn't pass her behind the wheel test at the DMV. We have been practicing and practicing and her driving is really good now. She got nervous and the test just went all to hell. I feel terrible for her. We took the test at the Santa Theresa DMV, which I've heard is the hardest place to pass. I wish we'd known that before taking it. She cried her eyes out on the way home. I have to give her credit, though. Today, she got right back on the horse and drove home from school. She is a trooper.

I was so tired today I didn't make any beads at all. Last night was my PMC class and I had a great time but came back to Mark having a tantrum about something idiotic. Whatever, dude. I think I need to have a girl's night out again. Every couple months I just get fed up with his attitude and I need to go out and vent so I can come back and be nice again. Right now, I can't seem to manage nice more than 50% of the time. We're all feeling the pressure of Mark's job and the anticipation of Desiree's graduation. Even Puppy has been acting up a bit. If she eats one more of my business cards....

Poor Des. I know how she feels. I did not get my drivers liscence until I was two months away from turning 21. I was afraid to drive. She just got to get over the fear of the test. She can do it I know she can. Keep me posted. Jan

maybe she still likes you driving her around, and she's not quite ready to grow up?

Jan, I will tell her she is not alone. She has a lot of fear of the test, not so much of driving anymore, thank goodness.

Val, you have nailed it right on the head. She is in a daily panic about 'starting her life'. I think there may be a little bit of self-sabotage going on.

Maybe you need to move on up here to Oregon, little towns are much easier to get your driver's licence in...and hey, we could use a Lori and Des up here!

I would LOVE to move up there, Kaye! It would be so great to be closer to you so we could have coffee together and chat. If only I could find Mark a job up there...
