This is where I was going to take a photo a day in 2012 but forgot to stop. I also write something random to give you an insight into the craziness that is Susan's mind.

June 19. Day 170. A big drip
We needed the rain. I get that. But somehow the scattered showers today managed to scatter themselves right over me at the exact moment I stepped outside. I felt like one of those cartoon characters walking around with a big dripping rain cloud over my head. I wouldn't mind so much, I would even ignore the water smudged fresh nail polish AND the wet dog smell, but today of all days I wanted nice, dry driving conditions. Today was the day my sweet little baby had his first driving lesson. The mere thought turned me into a big drip. We all know that wet roads are slippery dangerous roads and that wasn't the plan. But I trusted driving instructor Alan and his dual control car. That is, I trust Alan a whole lot more than I trust myself as a driving instructor. The fact is that while I don't have dual controls on my car I do have an imaginary break pedal and if I am a passenger - no matter who is driving - I am pumping it for all it is worth. I am the world's worst back seat driver, even when I'm in the front seat. There is no way in the living world I could instruct a learner driver especially one I gave birth to. So I have to trust Alan and pray for safe roads and safe drivers and try to not be a big drip.
