After another unplanned break due to the death of my instructors mum a possible date for the final exam is too close now and we have to look into the later dates. Being very vague here, because I'm not going to tell when it is, I will only tell when I have my license. Too much pressure when many people know it, even though you guys are "just" online people. 

Next week I will have two of the three mandatory lessons during the night. You are supposed to drive on the motorway and on country roads during those lessons, not so much in the city. (Makes sense, with all the street lights it is not really dark in towns.) I'm looking forward to it, it will be very relaxing because that is not relevant for my exam which is during the day. 

In the last lessons we practiced specifically for the exam. Lots of people I know failed their exam on the first try. It is quite hard. Not the driving, but more those situations you cannot plan. So I hope for a rainy day with really horrible weather so that not too many people on bikes are on the roads and not too many pedestrians as well. 

Nothing new on the car front. Still waiting for the right car to pop up. But we have have told a construction company to build my parking lot on our property. We have space for two cars right now, but with mine we need three places.  So thankful that we have that opportunity. If you need a parking spot on the street you are doomed. 

Next update will probably be that I have my car or my license or both but it can take a while. But it will be finished during 2018. Even if I fail the first time, there are still a few exam dates left this year.

(I envy every one in countries were the exam isn't that hard and/or lives in rural areas.)

      @neurogirl you're welcome! I am happy to hear we are not alone. I often question if we are just weird (I know we are happy, but you know just that "are we a little too strange" thought) for not having sex so often. Thank you for the confidence boost ❤️

      I found this opinion piece from 2012 awhile back, and it seems applicable now. (It's the New York Times, so it might be behind a paywall.)

      Men, Who Needs Them?

      He isn't so much anti-father as he is making a point. 

      Anyway, :my_tongue: to Lori and her fangirls and boys.

      That is a great article.  I love all the butthurt dudes in the comments.  While it contains a lot of science, it's an opinion piece!

      I open most of the jars in our house. I played piano for years and have a better grip.  I'm also more mechanical and enjoy fixing things. I built and installed custom shelving wall to wall in our home office.

      None of that makes me love or respect my husband less (or more!) I have a relationship with him that will last whatever roles we fill as we navigate life because we decide things together in the ways that work best for both of us.

      And despite what Lori thinks of the world -there are many many divorced, single, widowed women doing  - everything -  on our own.   We don't have a team, but we manage.  I think most women would/do. Lori isn't capable and couldn't, and just like her 'I never wanted to work so every female who wants to or does, is wrong and hates God' mindset,  she can't understand that there is a real world where daddy and hubby weren't there to support us all our lives.  She just really  -can't - she can only think we hate God so we deserve what we get.   She, of course, is above all that and always will be, unfortunately.    

       

      Right!  I'm happily divorced, not looking to couple up again, and capable of doing anything the average man can do in my home.  And if I can't I know who to call (i.e., plumber).  Believe it or not, Lori, brawn is not an essential trait for running a home.  It might help sometimes, but it is absolutely not needed.  I'm a petite woman and I assembled absolutely all of my furniture in my house myself.  *Gasp*

      P.S. Unfortunately I am waiting until a friend visits before I can get some heavy lifting done in my closet!  Fortunately it's not a priority.

      My two year and one year anniversaries of my two babies are this week. I found out they died on Aug 25, 2017 and Aug 24, 2018. They were born August 29, 2017 and August 31, 2018. And I just had my new baby on July 2. When I was pregnant, Every day I woke up, I was certain that it was going to be the day she died. Even on the day of her birth, I was convinced she would die in the middle of the CSection. I legitimately have PTSD from my obstetrical experiences from the last two years.

      One thing I try to remind myself is that protecting myself is my job. I can’t go to baby showers anymore and likely never will again. I had to “mute” friends on social media when their pregnancies got to a certain point. Other women aren’t being cruel or hurtful by being pregnant or discussing their experiences. They’re just unaware of the pain that accompanies pregnancy and infant loss.
