I haven't been driving since mid 09. I was driving a friends car and once I moved of course no more car. I have a kid and it is hard to get around on the bus cause it is. Locally I don't know to many people that can take me where I want to go. I hate depending on others for rides. I wasn't always this way I use to have a brand new car and always driving. In fact driving everyone else around. I was bad with money and lost the car to the repo man.

After that I wasn't driving but a law in I passed and if you EVER got a ticket you got fined. One day i got pulled over and ticket for driving on suspended which set me back even further financially. All is good now and decided to say fuck it and treat myself to a weekend rental. I am so excited. I can go to the store and get ALL the food I want like normal people do. I can go to the stores I have been dying to go to but wont cause it is like forever on the bus. I will just be able to do what I want. 

I do feel sort of scared cause I know last time I was driving I got pulled over for my speeding. That has been the only reason I have ever been pulled over. So I am kinda nervous about driving again. I have a kid now so I think I will be more aware of what I am doing versus when I was young and had no cares I the world.

So friday to monday I am going to have fun. i don't know where to go but I know I wont be in the house at ALL!!!! this will be the first time I ever (recently) done anything for myself..went against the grain.

I agree, well my mother and I are sharing my car due to hers having multple problems. so i can definetly relate to not being to stay out with the car for however long i need. I have to get it back in time for whatever errands she needs to do as well..
