So I’m studying for my learners right now. Yes I know this is ridiculously overdue but there have been a buttload of extenuating circumstances involved in my licenseless state of being. When I could first get my learners my folks had a lease vehicle, so no drivers under 21 were allowed. Then we had no car. Then, once we had a car again I started having seizures and was medically unable to drive until I was seizure free for two years. By the time that happened I was no longer living at home and Donnie and I had no car. Then we got a car and I just couldn’t be bothered.
But now I want to drive. I hate that we have to drag the kids grocery shopping when I could do it myself, I hate not being able to go places on my day off unless I spend a ridiculous amount of time and money on a bus ride. So I am studying the drivers handbook and hope to get my learners before Christmas. After that it will still be a year before I can get my license because of our graduated license system, but that’s okay. Realistically by the spring of 2013 I will be mobile. Then I can do what I really want to do once I can drive. Travel 6 hours round trip to have coffee with my bestest friend. Because I miss the hell out of her.
