I Am Now A Taxi Driver

I have officially become the family taxi driver. My kids with their jobs are driving me crazy, literally! They all work in the same little tourist town which is convenient but on different schedules, and we live approximately 20 minutes away. Soooooo, my life basically revolves around theirs.

Yesterday I was back and forth 3 times! Besides taking the little ones to get groceries with me. They, the little ones were terrific, and made a new friend yesterday. She is the daughter of the Amish family who run a Health Food store. They sell grass feed beef and dairy products, organic produce, nutritional supplements in a little store on their farm. Rosanna took them out behind the pole barn to see the little ponies.

My husband and I are using this time of the older girls working, to see how things go. We have concerns that having them work for someone else, will really complicate our family schedule. Just today my oldest daughter said that she didn't like that she hasn't had time to do the things she likes, such as getting her horse ready for the fair. I know they will like having some money to spend and save, but we will see whether this format, is going to work for us as a family.

Today, besides driving people to and from work, I will clean my kitchen, give the kitchen window one more coat of paint and declutter the living area!

Thanks for your patience with my lack of blogging.


  1. I understand where you are - completely. While I only had one to taxi, it was still sooo busy!

    Now I can ask her to pick up milk and bread at the store and she does that for me on her way home from work. Love it!

  2. I am eagerly awaiting that day! My son should have his license soon, and then I anticipate the joy of having him drop his sisters off at their job! Woo Hoo!
