Happy Independence Day To Me!!!
Dagan picked me up after work and we went to Best Buy. I got my converter box for the TV. Dagan bought it for me! :) Then we went over to their place so I could see their new giant TV that got delivered yesterday--which they are watching on camping chairs--hehe! (Store credit for the appliances they no longer need that were for the house.) Leah wasn't home when we got there, but when she came home--it was with a washed and filled Paseo--told me I was driving myself home!! I am covered on their insurance! Awesome!!
I took pictures over at Dagan and Leah's. (Look at all the trees around there! So many for a new development? Nice!)
And I took pictures of Dagan and Leah's new Nissan Versa, too.
Such a cute little hatchback!
Kind of daunting--getting behind the wheel after around five years or so. I had a car briefly around five years ago or so--gifted to me by a friend of a friend in college. It had been her Mother-In-Law's car and she had called it Blueberry Betty. I was going to call the car Faith--so she was called Blueberry Betty Faith. BBFaith lasted for less than a year, I think. I drove her about once a week. Other than that--I haven't had a car since I moved here in 1999!! Well, it is still Dagan and Leah's car, of course--but it will be over here with me. :)
Dagan and Leah are so good to me!!
It all came back to me--like riding a bike--hehe!
So, I have my own independence, too, today! I still can't quite wrap my mind around it--but I will. Am I going anyplace today? Nope. :) But, I will be sitting here savoring the thought that I can drive myself to my doctor appointment on the 14th!! That CashWise was out of my toilet paper yesterday and I can drive over to Target--whenever I want!--and buy some! Don't have to call Dagan and Leah to see who can take me....ahhhhhh--freedom!
