My son turned 14 on Friday. FOURTEEN you guys. He is now legally old enough to get a learner’s permit. Perhaps I did not state that firmly enough. MY SON. IS OLD ENOUGH. TO DRIVE. *brain explode*
Adding to that “OMG I AM SO FRAKKING OLD” feeling that one gets when her first child is old enough to drive, one of my best friends since high school posted an old photo of us on Facebook. The photo was taken on our high school graduation day in 1994. Lordie lordie who’s almost forty (in 3-1/2 years)? That’s right friends – me.
Also my daughter got braces on Wednesday. My baby girl. Got braces. Oh, and she’ll be a teenager in December. It is all over for me; I might as well just put on a mumu and join the AARP. On the plus side, the event did inspire me to make another cartoon, which I also made into a t-shirt which you can buy on Zazzle.com.
On a related note, after finishing the 5K on Tuesday I decided to create a celebratory cartoon of my Mom & myself (and Ian’s foot). You can buy a shirt with this cartoon on it too if you want.
And in case you hadn’t guessed, I have started a Zazzle shop. I’m still just trying to get the hang of how it works, but I love the idea that I can make whatever I want out of my cartoons and stories. Unfortunately I’m not entirely sure what I want to make out of what cartoons. I just like the idea that someone somewhere can give a gift to someone and that gift will have one of my cartoons on it. I will gladly take requests. As long as those requests are not “For the love of all things holy please do not post any more dog & cat stories.” Because obviously I will continue doing that as long as my dogs and cats continue doing funny things.
