Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

*

As the mother of a teenage driver I am always on pins and needles every time he grabs his keys and leaves the house.  There is just so much they can learn in a classroom setting and even with the mandatory driving hours that are required with a Graduated License, once they are on the road alone it can become a life or death situation.

Some teenagers are extremely careful and patient drivers, others not so much and unfortunately I have the latter.  I’ve explained to him that driving is a privilege and he should remain ever vigilant when he’s behind the wheel.  There are just too many RIP Markers on the sides of the road and a few of you know that I lost my sister in a car accident on September 14th 1992.

I have argued, nagged and yelled at him to drive slowly and also threatened him with the loss of his car, keys and driving privileges if ever stopped for speeding.

It goes in one ear and out the other and so I think the time has come for more drastic measures.  Hubby brought home information from the website Teen Tracking, a plug and play GPS monitoring system and I am seriously considering buying one.

According to the website The Big Brother GPS Locator/Tracker “allows parents to keep a close eye on their new teen drivers. Notifications on speed and boundary violations. Easy 2-wire installation. Installs under dash for covert operation. PoweredbyGPS® technology.”  The cost is hefty but the piece of mind is priceless and definitely cheaper than the increase to our monthly car insurance rates!

Has anyone purchased this Teen Tracking monitor or is there another GPS Tracker that you would suggest?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today is actually my Friday as I will officially be on vacation starting at 5:00 p.m. today until next Tuesday- que up the Flintstone’s theme song – YabbaDabbaDoo!!!  I can’t believe it’s the Memorial Day Weekend already, seems like only yesterday it was Easter.  I guess it’s true what they say, the older you get the faster time passes.  Oh and before I have another senior moment – Congratulations to all the parents of the Class of 2013, you did an excellent job and should be very proud of yourself!

Today’s outfit is a floral dress thrifted from GW Boutique and sandals from Payless, which by the way is having a major sale, and don’t forget to show your AAA Card for an additional 10% off.

Hello Friends and Happy President’s Day 2013

Lucky lucky you if you are home today on holiday because “it’s as cold as a witches’ tit”!   I remember that as being one of my mother’s favorite sayings during those cold New York winters.  Do you remember any crude statements that your parents or grandparents liked to say way before it would be considered politically incorrect? (careful)

In honor of President’s Day I was going to wear Red with Blue and White Polka Dots but it’s just too cold.  Instead I chose the warm and cozy flannel shirt that my son put in the “to be donated” box but never made it, a thrifted khaki skirt and knee high boots – it’s all about keeping warm!  I like these boots because they can be worn full length showing the brass studs or folded over to reveal the leopard print – two styles in one for less than $20!
