Where is the time going?

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week. Not only is it Thanksgiving but it is also Harry's birthday. My little boy is going to be two!!! The time is going too fast.

Valerie got the closest with her guess of $280. My total ticket (which includes the fee for traffic school so that my insurance company does not find out about my lead foot) came to a whopping $300! Even though she did not guess the exact amount, I am going to give her a prize any way since I really like her. I am going to make her a set of these.

One of the many reasons I like Valerie so much is that she has started up a support group for parents of kids with heart defects. I wish we lived a little closer so it was easier to attend the meetings. I think it would be neat to meet other heart parents face to face. She has also helped several kids from South America get the surgery that they need to live a long and healthy life. She is one amazing woman!

She does indeed sound awesome! Yay for her!

Boo for the 300 bucks, though.

Wow - that's tough. Glad you've found something local.
Best wishes

$300? Ouch! Still better than it hitting your insurance.

wow, $300! So sorry to hear it's that much. But since your insurance will not go up, it's definately worth it! =D

A Thanksgiving baby? Now THAT is something to be grateful about!

$300??? YIKES! That's a lot! Geesh, I hope you don't get another ticket any time soon.

My "baby", Austin, turned 12 today!

Where does the time go???

Oh, I almost forgot to congratulate Valerie for winning the cool prize. I never would have guessed that high. My son got a speeding ticket just over a year ago (it was his 2nd!) and it was $125 and he thought that was high.

Next time, wait until you get to AZ to speed. It's cheaper here. haha!
