I am hoping that some financing that I’ve requested will go through without a hitch. I’ve been without my car since the heater core went kaput on it in late January. Since then, I’ve been hoofing it everywhere, pretty much. A co-worker has been offering to drive me to and from work without asking for compensation (little does he know that he can’t get away with that – somehow, I’m gonna at least fill his tank once, at least). So, if I get the funds I’m looking for today, the enormous repair bill that I’ve been faced with will finally be eradicated and I can have a bit more flexibility again with the transportation situation. I still want to walk Caleb to school, though, as its the only real exercise that I’ve given myself.
The only snag is that I need picture ID and I think that I’ve left my drivers license in the car, which is a bit far away from home to walk. I guess that I’d better see if I can get it, though. Otherwise, there will be a delay. I’m sure that I’ll overcome that, though. Once mobile again, I can search around for some digs – preferably something I can own – with more room for the growing weeds (also known as children).
I have a bit of reservation about getting the car back, as I’ve felt, in some ways, more at ease without the vehicle available. I haven’t had the quick trips to the store or the errands that I can do – because I can get there. I’ve had to plan a more deliberate course of action when it comes to getting bills paid and groceries bought, etc. I have become reacquainted with riding the bus, which is not such a bad experience (although a few of the drivers are a bit aggressive), since you don’t have to be the driver. You can pay attention to the traffic if you want, but you don’t have to to stay alive. I’d take the bus a lot more often if there were more runs to where I needed to go.
Anyhow, I think that this is a good thing, all in all. I’ve had a few loose ends ti tie up and this move should help me to do that.
