My sweet son turns 20 today. How on earth did this time pass so quickly? Seems like just yesterday we brought him home and I had to learn to change diapers and make bottles. I’m very proud to see the young man Chad has grown into – with his own views and positions about life, but I surely miss that little boy I used to have running around the house in Batman pajamas.
I’ve made all his favorite foods for tonight – shrimp dip, gumbo for dinner, and chocolate cake.
The police still haven’t made contact with the guy who hit Chad’s car. The man apparently lives in Lamar and it sounds like they have an absolute mess down there with all the ice and no power so I’m encouraging Chad to be patient. I suppose if the Nevada police aren’t able to find the guy, Chad and Vince will take a copy of the police report to the Lamar police or Barton County Sheriff and see what they can do about finding him but they’ll wait til the frenzy is over and the power is restored. Chad is chomping at the bit to get his car fixed NOW.
We closed on the lot behind us yesterday so it’s officially ours now. I’m hoping the contractor begins work soon but it’s been over 2 weeks since he was going to give us the estimate for all the work and we haven’t heard a word from him. Ughhh!
Now that the food is done and the cake is mostly done, I’m going to quilt.
