Vroom, vroom

Remember that I mentioned, many posts ago, that Son2 (now 5) seems fascinated with cars and driving? Something new to add to that scenario: yesterday or the day before, dear husband is driving the four of us somewhere, and Son2 pipes up, "Daddy, when you drive, you make that... that... those numbers only go to 2, but when Mommy drives, she makes it go to 3. Why?" Dear husband and I know Son2 can see most or all of the dashboard dials from his seat in back, and we realize he's noticed the rpm dial when we shift gears! (We drive a manual-transmission, a/k/a stick shift, car.)

Dear husband's response was nice and simple: "Different people drive differently" :)

In the meantime, we're both thinking -- race car driver? car designer? police officer? ...??? Hee.

By the way, no movement on the school situation and/or homeschooling. No decisions at home, either. The boys have been separated for recess and that's "going very well" (of course! they're not with each other!).

I'm trying to create some "margin" in my life so I can enjoy what I choose to do and commit to -- without it being a burden. I may be turning down a big opportunity today because of that margin thing. I'd rather enjoy my kids a bit more...

Yes, my thought about the "3" on the rpms dial was self-doubt, but only a flash of it! I mean, it's not like I rev it to 4 (usually)! heeheehee
