When you're seventeen, as D17 is, it's tricky to make Big Decisions About The Rest of Your Life. Next year, he'll probably head off to university... either three hours drive away, where the rest of the rellies reside... or two days drive (plus a boat trip across The Choppy Strait) away. No surprises which one I favour.
It's a large decision, "What will I be when I grow up?" I always wanted to be a teacher, which I became... and still am, of sorts. Hubby tried all sorts of stuff before landing in his adored profession.
Yesterday I found someone else who believes:
YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND IT
AND FOLLOW YOUR CALLING.
(Hilary Swank, in Marie Claire, May 2007)
We needed some therapy today: how's these for *swank style* then...
our new shoe collection... OH YES, and the best part is that my silver strap wedges cost only $4.97, and they say *go crazy* which is one of my gorgeous brother's sayings...
Perhaps that can be our new seventeen-year-old mantra.
