Hit The Road, Jack!

Ooops....I mean, Oldest Daughter! It’s a big day in Rock Chickland!

My oldest daughter, Ariana, is right now hitting the road with her newly acquired (less than one hour old) driver’s license.

Yes, PLEASE pass the Xanax. Thank you.

I let her take a half day off of school to go do the road test because they only do them until 3:00 PM at our local facility.

She now is out in my car, alone, getting me a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee! She’s even paying! Isn’t that nice of her? She’s been so helpful these last 45 minutes or so :)

The road tester told me she did really well. I suppose that should ease my nerves while I wait for her to arrive with my caffeine fix, right?

Somehow, it isn’t.

For your own safety and for the renewal of my auto insurance, please avoid coming into contact with any black Kia Sedona minivans you may see driving around, ok?

And...In a few hours, I will be on the road heading towards Chicago’s United Center to see Bon Jovi! I can’t wait! As an extra treat, Chris Daughtry is opening for him. He was one of my favorite American Idol contestants and I’m a big fan of his tunes, too!

I’ll let you know how it goes....the concert and the driving!

Congrats to Ariana! I remember that feeling well (youngest got hers in November).

But hey! You have Bon Jovi tonight to distract you, hooray.

My daughter and two of my carpool passengers are about to be of age to get their permits. We parents have banded together and tell them frequently, "If you even THINK of speeding, we have informed all of our friends to immediately call us if they see you, so you are going to be busted before you leave the neighborhood."

It is said that when a parent lends a child their car they show they truly trust them. It is also said that they're a bloody idiot. either or...

lol, I remember being allowed to go out and drive on my own!! I'd of bought my parents almost anything just for the freedom of driving by myself! :)

Congrats, Ariana!

vixen: thanks! Bon Jovi was a great distraction! Too bad I can't go to a concert every day!

di: We have our neighborhood watch in place, too! LOL My neighbor's son is getting his license this week and another one of the neighbor kids got his yesterday. I'm focusing my binoculars for some intense spying missions :)

freelance: It definitely is a combination of both! Thanks for the smile!

jessica: I'm certainly having my fill of Dunkin' Donuts coffee! I have to say, though, she's been willing to pick up her siblings which saves me some driving. I actually got to sit and eat dinner yesterday. This may just work out well!

crystal...Ari says Thank you!!!
