Beth is out driving for the first time alone today. I gave her money for gas and a few dollars to go through the drive thru at McDonald’s. I thought that she would want to get the gas and drive back home. That’s what I did. My parents gave me a few dollars to get gas and I did that and drove straight home. She didn’t feel the same way. She wanted to be gone for an hour. An hour. I’m hyperventilating. This is her first time out driving. Couldn’t she go get the gas and come home and tell me that she is OK?
We all had lunch after church. Maggie had separated the movies. She made a pile of movies that we don’t watch any more. We needed to wait until we were all here to choose which ones to let go. The VHS will go to the Goodwill and the DVDs will go to the resale shop. The resale shop doesn’t take VHS’s any more. They take up too much room. We separated the movies and kept any that any one wanted. Each movie only needed one vote to stay. Then Beth went driving. My little girl. She still had her dress on from church and looked so grown up. I prayed over her before she left, that she would be safe and everyone around her would be safe. I also told her to remember to watch her speed and the other cars and to watch all of the things that I usually remind her of. I also took her picture of her before she left. She left in the car… I watched out the back door… The garage is in the back of the house. Then I watched out of the front door. She texted me after about a half hour from a McDonald’s that she was OK. I’m still hyperventilating.
Beth made it home OK. She had fun but looked like it was no big deal. I may need to color my hair soon. Beth had gone to get gas, then she went to McDonald’s. She went on the highway and went past a few friends houses. She did have fun. Beth looks very sure of herself when she is driving.
