Fourteen years (and a couple of months) I packed my things into our geo metro and a semi trailer, bound for Seattle. So much of my life has changed since we moved here, and I have just tackled a new milestone.
I am now driving.
Part of what finally pushed me over the edge was the availability of a car. Mike’s ex-girlfriend was moving back to Miami and wanted to sell her car, I had a little bit of cash and was able to make an offer. So being the proud owner of a car we began working on driving practice right away.
Mike was patient, letting me drive a little bit of everywhere, from regular trips to the grocery store to a camping trip to visits into Seattle. After a few weeks I got comfortable. The car became mine on 3/28. On 4/1 I wondered if I could get my license by my birthday (the 23rd). On the 4/14, I took my drivers test and 4/15 I had my picture taken at the DMV.After 22 years, I was officially licensed.
Funny how long milestones can take.
