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.

      But as many as she has had, wouldn't identical twins this time have the danger of twin-to-twin whatever that is called?

      Twin to Twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a risk for any multiple pregnancy where two or more babies share the same placenta (monochorionic is the medical term). It can happen in any monochorionic pregnancy which is why monochorionic twins are monitored much more carefully. So Courtney would only be at risk for TTTS she had multiples that shared a placenta.

      I wonder if the parents will be separate from the general population while in prison.  Because even in prison, the prisoners have standards and abusing children marks you as the lowest of the low.

       

      They probably will be put in a unit with other people requiring protection from general population but unless they are in solitary confinement, chances are they will still be targeted by other people in protective custody, not all of them have been convicted of crimes against children or sex crimes.

      Okay, her "all about how awesome I am" poem bugs me. Your skin is as smooth as cotton sheets. What the hell does this even mean? It makes it sound like she woke up with the weave of the cloth imprinted on her face.

      I used to have a work friend who became a grandmother at 34. A girl I went to school with made her mother a grandmother at 30. My cousin was a grandmother at 36 (as was her mother). My mother had me young, but I was 27 when I had my first, so she was 46 when she became a grandmother.

      The most shocking I have come across: I used to have a regular customer at a store I worked at who was the ripe old age of 28 when she became a grandmother!

      I had a client at work who was a grandmother at 29. She was 16 when she had her daughter who then had a baby at 13. The grandmother ended up with legal custody of the baby and raised her as her own. It was crazy though because I didn't have my first until I was 30 and Grandma and I were the same age so her granddaughter was a year older than my son.
