4 yrs ago...

I see my last entry was when summer was just getting started.

Since then, Rachel has completed 5 weeks of a summer intensive and a week long workshop and started school again! She's already a full month into her schoolwork. What have I done in that time? I've retained my role as chief chauffeur. Oh yes, and the chauffeur has a new set of wheels. After 15 yrs, we bid farewell to my Eclipse, may she rest in peace. She was the car that was bought because we were planning to expand our family. My previous car only sat 2! No room for a carseat.

Four summers ago, my chauffeur role was not quite as easy as it is today. I don't think about those days very often anymore, but had a reminder today.

After 4 years, it was time to renew my driver's license.

Did you know that in NJ you can actually reuse your old photo? I had no idea. The gal behind the counter just assumed I wouldn't want to change mine. I had to correct that. The day I had that photo taken was the day I realized that I was actually losing my eyelashes. There were a few left, but the vast majority were gone. Yes, they, along with my eyebrows, have made a return appearance. The eyebrows are the same as they always were, but my eyelashes have never been the same again. Fortunately, it's something I only notice when I put mascara on and that's a rarity. :) As much as anyone hates having a license photo taken, I'm pretty much thrilled to have a driver's license featuring my very own hair (not a wig) and a full set of eyebrows and eyelashes. :)

P.S. This one is for Peggy. Enjoy Alaska!
