My prayers have been answered. Thank you, God! Huge thanks are also in order for my parents, without whom this never could have happened, and I am so grateful for their love and assistance.
THAT’S MY 1999 FORD EXPLORER!!!!
I’ve known about this possibility for almost a week now….yesterday all of the financing went through and the Explorer officially became mine! Now that I have my own transportation such a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. My car is ready and waiting on me in San Luis Obispo. As soon as I wake tomorrow I’ll take my last necessary RTA trip– and drive home in my new car!
[[Because I recently obtained a monthly regional bus pass I am going to donate it to the Women’s Shelter as a token of my gratitude for all that they have done for me. It’s the very least I can do for all that the lifesaving group has done for my children and me.]]
I cannot wait to put Adam’s brand new car seat in the back. Soon Tatum’s infant travel system will arrive from Memphis and join her big brothers. Then we’ll have our ultimate family vehicle. How wonderful it will be to travel freely without relying on public transportation or rides from others! We’ll visit our friends, go to the beach, take a road trip to Los Angeles…the possibilities are endless.
What a way to usher in the new year. It’s an indication of the amazing things to come for our little family in 2012. We deserve this.
It goes without saying that I’ll never let anyone else drive my vehicle again. No exceptions. And it will be kept immaculately clean– at least as much as I can do with two small children. 😉
Naming cars always struck me as silly. Until now. The single mama mobile needs a name. I’m waiting until I actually ‘meet’ her for inspiration to strike. And yes, I will refer to her by her name. Adam won’t be getting into ‘the car,’ no sir, he’ll be climbing into __________.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
