Have I mentioned...

......that I don't drive? It's a HUGE hassle with all of this monitoring because DH has to get off of work to take me to the appointments. They're very understanding right now, but that's not going to last long.

He's off next week and I think he'll be taking me to get my permit.
I used to drive before, but I dunno, just stopped. I guess I just got comfy with DH driving us everywhere, and then I let my license expire and so on and so forth.
I haven't driven in over 10years... YEARS. Geeze.

I'm excited but scared to start again. It's a different world out there now. So many more drivers, SO many more idiots on the road.
It'll be fun though having some freedom.
Don't get me wrong, I love staying at home and being a hermit, I really do, but not having to bug DH to take me somewhere will be nice.
I'll just hope in MY car and go where I want :D That'll be so fun.

I really want a hybrid. They're SO expensive though.
Looking in to getting a Honda Insight. They're the cheapest on the market right now and it is compared to the Prius.
I mean I'd like a Prius but with the recalls, and them not really knowing WTH is wrong with their cars, oh AND the price for them..... the Insight will have to do hehe.
I'll probably end up driving our truck anyway though. Let DH drive the hybrid since he'd probably get better gas mileage out of it going back and forth to work.
I'll have to look up all of our options though. Just have to make sure the payments will be below $200 a month.

It is scary to get back into the groove of things but it also equals freedom. I hated waiting for people all the time and even worse, I hated having to inconvenience everyone with picking me up and dropping me off.

To clarify I was in a bad car accident in October 2005, it took me a few years to get back behind the wheel and honestly, I was scared to death. I was actually shaking at the thought of going about 35 but after awhile of regular driving it became second nature and now I drive like a pro.

You just have to hop back on that saddle and ride it out :)

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm excited but still scared.
I did have a dream last night that I started driving again and picked it back up no problem heh.
I know it won't be like that IRL, but I can dream obviously :P lol
