Little did anyone know that when I felt well enough to drive that my whole world took on a new sense of purpose.
A new sense of "drive" if you will....heehee I crack ME up.
Anyhoodle. . .I finally went and renewed my driver's license because I was feeling bad that Pooldad was doing all of the driving. Then we were faced with the small problem of our one car family. I have to take Pooldad to work if I want to toodle around town, so he told me to pick a car, research it, test drive it and when I found the one I loved we would go ahead and try to make the numbers work.
May I introduce "Bert".
[Yes, I name all my cars. Doesn't everyone? ::wink::]
It is a smart car passion fortwo
Kind of fitting, considering it will only seat Pooldad and me.
Here it is in our driveway:
The hatch opened.
I could probably fit four bags of groceries in there.
Or the dog.
THIS is what sold me on it tho' [well, besides the amazing gas mileage]
LOOK at the legroom in this sucker.
Pooldad will be riding in style.
The driver's seat is positioned for me, but drops all the way back if he wants to drive too. Neat, huh?
And for a little extra fun - it has a moonroof.
That's my hand laying on it. I am a good bit taller than the car. :)
It may not be for everyone, but it is perfect for ME!
I finally decided that my time here may be limited, but that I wasn't going to let it get in the way of actually LIVING. Sure, I could sit in my house and lament my fate. Boohoo about how unfair it all is and question what exactly did I do to deserve this sentence - but DAMMIT - that is NOT me. I have a family to raise and a husband to love on - and a fine looking husband to love on I may add, and that is not just because he may be buying me this car, heehee - I have things I want to do and no amount of pain, or sickness or doctors prognosis are going to make me sit down and cry while I wait for the end. Those of you closest to me know how scared I was initially and that did tend to make me hesitant to try to be the "old" me, but I found the longer I babied myself and allowed my family to do it the more independence I relinquished. Once the doctors cleared me of cancer and we started the steps to get me on a transplant list I discovered that no matter what happens I can't just WAIT for an organ to show up, meanwhile watching all the good stuff pass me by. Think of everything I would miss. Think of how much I would be letting everyone down. And sorry, but I LIVE for my family and friends. All you all are what keeps me going. I thank you.
And just imagine. . .if we can swing the deal on the car - I can start visiting y'all. :D I figure I can start in PA, then move over to DE then head on up to ME and after that CANADA! And let us not forget TN, NM, the Carolinas, FL - That would be one heck of a road trip.
Leave the light on Tadpoles. Skippy may just be hitting the road. ::wink::
Now. . .if I can just get that two hour driving distance limitation lifted I am all set. :D
Have a great Monday. I have so much more to share with y'all, but this is what is happening today - and after my 2 hour test drive this morning I am a little pooped. I think I'll go bake something.
See ya' on the flipside Tadpoles.
