Last year was full of major milestones for our family with Jake’s graduation, start of college and the Mayors’ completion of elementary school. It was a lot of big changes for our family, so much so that I completely forgot about this year’s forthcoming milestones. Yep, this year Goalielocks will finish middle school and get his learner’s permit. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! Can somebody stop time?
Last month, we completed the choice program application for his high school program. Like his middle school program, he’s looking to continue in the medical choice program. I still can’t believe that he’ll be starting high school. It’s absolutely insane, but the scarier part is that he’ll be driving.
Its scary enough having one teen driver in the house. Honestly, I’m not sure my heart, stomach and pocket book can handle another teen driver. I hope my neighbors are prepared as well. I have a new respect for what my brothers and I put my parents through when we were first driving. Moreover, in South Florida you have the added worry of your teen driver having to contend with elderly driving and other crazy South Florida drivers. In good news, once you learn to drive here, I’m pretty sure you could drive anywhere and feel comfortable.
Meanwhile, I started my 14 day vegan meal program that I purchased off of Groupon. The meal plan from the Vegan Garden comes with 14 breakfast and 14 dinners. Tonight’s breakfast was a chocolate muffin, which was very yummy. If I hadn’t bought it as a part of a vegan meal plan, I wouldn’t have known it was vegan. My dinner was a great dish of spaghetti and “meatballs.” Fortunately, the spaghetti and meatballs were absolutely yummy. In addition to being flavorful, the dish was filled with protein. I complimented these meals with a vegan protein shake for lunch. After my two-week meal plan is over, I’ll give you a full review and run down on the Vegan Garden meal plans.
Tonight’s song performed by Simon and Garfunkel is “Mrs. Robinson.” I had to choose a song with the legendary Paul Simon as he announced his farewell tour today. P..S. The pics are some of my favorites of the boys and my dad from our trip to Norway. My dad taught my brothers and I how to drive as well as Jake. I hope he’s ready for his new student Goalielocks!
