I've Never Owned A....

...standard transmission car before. I've only ever driven an automatic. Well, Friday I'm trading in my 2002 Buick Rendezvous gas hog for a 2000 Saturn SL2 5-speed standard. My boyfriend has been taking me out in his "baby" (2002 Ford Mustang) and teaching me to be more "comfortable" with a stick shift. Today, I even got to test drive my new car. I'm happy but nervous. I think it's a step in the right direction for my family. Who else has only ever driven an automatic? I can't be alone in this.

Every car I had was a standard, up until I had my children!
