I am feeling much better. So much better that my wonderful husband is going to a Nationals baseball game tomorrow with his boss and leaving me the van.
Usually he wouldn't leave me the vehicle because I haven't driven since last summer because we only have one car and he usually has it and when he is home I like him to drive [run on sentence much, Skip?] And then I was sick...blah, blah, blah whatev.
But now? I have to drive the girls to their respective activities tomorrow.
Seriously? I have no idea why I am bothered. They are local trips - and they are roads I have driven a thousand times before, and it will be daylight...but.....It just doesn't feel right to suddenly grab the keys and take off in the van when I haven't been behind the wheel for almost a year. As an added bonus? I have only driven that van few times. And I hate large vehicles.
Is driving a car like riding a bike? Do you simply remember all the nuances? I also wonder if your reflexes atrophy from not driving for so long. . . hmmmm
I am a good driver - I haven't had a ticket in 16 years [**frantically rapping my knuckles on my dining room table**]. Heck, we pay less than $300 a year for full coverage insurance so I guess I am good. . . but, wait - did they institute any new laws in the last year? [Not including cellphones which I don't own] Is there something I don't know? Has there been road construction? Are the places we are going still in the same locations? Do my contacts or eyeglasses still work? Gah.
I know I am worrying for naught, but honestly it really does feel illegal. Thank goodness my license is still valid.
If I only knew where it was.
