So, it seems that we will likely be owning a motor vehicle sooner than I had planned. I was going to go through this winter without a car and make my way back and forth to work with other means (but now on the really cold, snowy, or rainy days…). My in laws are replacing their car with something newer. There present vehicle can be trusted for short trips, though, and since they realized that its resale would not net very much, they decided to give it to us. So, now I have to call my insurance company and see if they’ll start me off with similar rates as I had 4-1/2 months ago. I didn’t see the point of insuring a car that I didn’t own any longer which was in a junk yard anyway.
So, I guess the kids might actually get to school without frostbite this year. I’m still riding my bike.
