That's what I call driving!

Quick update:

While the final decision will be made on Monday after another lesson, my heart is already set on switching to Automatic. That means getting another car. But my Grandpa said he will help me fund it. 

Driving today was so so much better. I was at the right speed most of the time (50 when there is 50 allowed and not 40 like before), I drove quicker into roads. I felt better. It was fun to drive and for the first time I was pleased with myself after a lesson.

My instructor said that in the future, there will only be Automatic cars. And even now, many upper class cars are Automatic. (Given that electric cars are also Automatic...) He prefers driving in Automatic as well. It is more relaxing. And he said that sometimes it is quite nice not being able to drive every car.

EDIT: I blame my Autism for the problems with a manual car. Too much to do at once.

I’m glad you’re figuring out what you like. My one lesson on a manual lasted about 2 minutes before I stalled it and my dad ended the lesson (it was his truck). He’s had an automatic for 10 years now and I’m still not allowed to drive it.

      I'm confused by this new post on the Dillard's blog, "how to love your wives like you mean it" as opposed to how to love your wife like you love her? And this should be from a name perspective reading the first few lines... I don't get it I have reread it like 3 times in a row and still 🤷‍♀️

      I found FJ because  was doing some Internet research.  I almost married a man who was pretty much fundamentalist (long story there, the best thing that's ever happened to me was when he broke up with me.  I was 18).  We both wanted a big family and since we were engaged, I started reading up on large families.  

      Enter Erika Shupe.

      (Yes, I know.)

      After thinking this woman was insane, I decided to straight-up Google her name (I think I found her website on a Pinterest board).  By that time, her website had been scrubbed or deleted or whatever.  Instead, I found FreeJinger.  That had to be about 2018?  I followed along while her oldest found freedom (and someone suggested renaming the site FreeMelanie or FreeKaren, which ever daughter was the next.  That's when I realized FreeJinger was about Jinger Duggar... DUH.)

      I stayed and decided to make an account because I love the snoop, the snark, and the overall style of the site.  I think it's interesting how clearly you'all've dissected these families and done research into their histories.  I am a conservative Christian and I've grown up around some pretty fundie families, even though they don't claim to be fundie.  Anyway, it's just interesting stuff to me.  To be clear, I don't like fundieism and I'm glad that I missed that bullet.

      Information I found out today is the Coronavirus is running rampant at Gwen’s church.  Twenty-two confirmed cases and many more refusing to be tested.  No word if Gwen or Joe have it.

      I'll be honest: I'm a Christian and I want to adopt.  But I'm *not* Fundamentalist and I'm *not* about shoving Jesus down people's throats.

      I recently started watching Counting On from the very beginning (just got Hulu).  Hearing Jessa talk about adoption while Spurgeon was a baby is kinda ... 😨 My biological sister was adopted at birth, and ever since I learned that fact I've had strong feelings about adoption.  In my sister's case, her parents were older and unable to have more children (they had one biological child).  My sister and I both have an endocrine disease that practically guarantees us fertility issues, and we've both expressed the intent to adopt someday.

      But Jessa . . . I'm worried if anyone wants to adopt because of their savior complex, and that's exactly what Jessa seems to have.  

      (Plus, I'm not sure I can see Ben and Jessa loving a child who isn't like them in race, ability, etc. Obviously they're the best 🙄).
