Haha, that makes it sound like illegally driving was ever an option. What? No! Not even in the Shoppers Drug Mart parking lot!
So it's been a couple weeks since Annyong won her driving test. It's been extremely advantageous for me because now I can say things like "hey sweetie I'm going out to the barn, can you take a five out of the grocery jar and go into town to get a bag of milk?" or "will you drive your brother to bow club while I'm working" or "gas tank's empty. Go fill it."
We can all three go out on some errand-running mission, but I can send them off to do a thing while I'm doing a thing and then they can come pick me up.
They could even go pick up a friend - without me! I know I could trust them too because one day they had a friend over and the three of them put gas in the truck and only stopped off at mcYuk's as opposed to going to mcYuk's before gathering up three more teenagers for a grease fueled joyride. Aw, my kids are so goooood!
On top if this, the kids and I have (drumroll please) inherited the Jetta tadaaaaaa! Yep we're a 3 vehicle family now. We are in that strange position where we need another set of wheels so the kids can go get jobs, which they can't walk or bike to because we live in the country, but then they NEED jobs so they can pay for insurance and fuel for a third vehicle, and of course then we're back into a car payment for the new one and suddenly I don't like where this is going, but anyways.
The Honey Badger is guarding the barn until we need it for actual truck stuff and the Jetta takes us everywhere else. I'm not going through $60 a week in has anymore. One of these days I'll fill the VW tank and see how long it takes to get through a tank of diesel.
See ya in Kentucky. Hahaha!
And yes, SHE PARALLEL PARKED THE HONEYBADGER IN ONE TRY.
