Within the first few weeks of living here I realized I didn't really drive my car anymore.
Everywhere I needed to go I could either walk or
ride my bike there.
When I actually did drive somewhere outside of my
little town, it was always with the hubby in his truck.
My brand new Ford Explorer just sat there collecting dust.
So in an effort to simplify my life (and save cash for my dream house)....
I decided to ditch the big ole SUV, and go for something smaller,
affordable and just more... me:)
SQUEEEEL!!!!!! LOOOOK AT HER!!!!
Is she the cutest thing ever???
Say hello to my 1956 VW oval window.
Somebody has made himself quite comfortable in her already:)
That steering wheel... I die.
Power steering?? Psh! what's that??
A stereo?? Nope. You just have to sing to yourself or gasp! have a
conversation with somebody!!
If you've ever driven a VW in your life, then you know what I mean
when I say they have a sound and smell all their own.
And I'm lovin it:)
My first car was a stick shift that my dad just threw me in and made me drive
after a 5 minute lesson. I remember being so freaked out and annoyed that
he would buy me a car that he KNEW I didn't know how to drive!!
I was honestly in tears when he got out of the car and made
me drive home by myself. I can still see his face as he leaned in the window and he said-
Dorie just relax!!! you're learning something that you're going to be grateful
you know someday.... and you're going to thank me.
I sold that car some years later and hadn't driven a stick shift since.
You know what else I haven't done since I was 16??
Take a drivers test.
It can't be that bad right?
I'm taking it today.
Wish me luck!!!
