Yep, that's what it's been like in my house! I have been without a refrigerator since last Wednesday. That's right. June 30, 2010. Why, you ask? Because my beautiful GE Profile refrigerator, a mere six years old, kicked the bucket!! Incredible. Craftsmanship these days really leaves much to be desired. I had the ice maker fixed about three months ago . . . to the tune of $250.00. I refused to invest another penny. So, out with the old . . .

Leaving on a Jet Plane
Rachel went on her first solo flight today to visit family and friends in Connecticut and New Jersey. I know she's 16 years old, but this old mother's heart was flipping out while waiting for that text message telling me she landed. She did! I'm so proud of her for handling this on her own. And I'm proud of me also!! She is very mature and very responsible, but still, I've always been with her whenever she flew anywhere. It's really hard to watch those baby birds spread their wings!!
So now she's off having fun. That's what summer is all about. While we often catch a Broadway show when we visit New Jersey, we won't make it to one this year when I join Rachel. Our alternative is a Bon Jovi concert. That man with the golden locks will rock our socks off on my birthday in none other than our home state. A wonderful birthday treat for me!! I cannot wait!!
