Driving lessons, roundabouts and fog

Last week we were invited to a 50th birthday party in another suburb, maybe 20/25 minutes to drive. The party started at 7pm and lasted until after midnight. I drove my Mum and it went really great. I reverse parked like a pro! 😉 On our way back there were literally no cars on the roads. I was so much fun driving around town alone. I did some roundabouts twice and we had music on. It was better than the party!!! 😂 There was also a pretty foggy part outside of the town, almost no visibility. Took me a second to find the fog light (I know were they are, but finding them without looking for the first time was a bit difficult). It felt so great being able to drive my Mum.

I also gave my mum her first lessons in an automatic car. She is only used to driving manual cars and has never driven an automatic. She is doing great, her left food is no problem at all, but she always wants to shift with her hand. So I have to remind her constantly to have her hands on the steering wheel.

Driving alone still isn't really happening. I feel safer with my mum next to me. Totally crazy, because she never says something. I don't need her help at all. I need to face my fears a bit more and drive alone. Also I don't drive on the motorway and I don't plan to change that. I'd rather drive longer on the other roads. Driving on the motorway isn't the problem, but pulling into it. Maybe I will practice when there is very little traffic, but due to the area here, there is always traffic on the motorway.

It still feels unreal to drive. I wonder when that will change.

      I think he wants to get remarried simply so he can have marital relations again and to have someone else pick up all of his slack. I’m not buying the “My girls need a mommy” bit. Tom, you want someone else for your own selfish reasons.

      I don’t believe for a second he wants a wife for any reasons other than what you stated, but I DO think he’ll make it appear that way. No, he only wants another wife so he can continue being an absent & incompetent father. 

      It’s a way for him to continue on his self-destructive path. He’ll find someone who will cater to his every whim while running his household too.

      I inspected assisted living facilities for the state for one of my previous jobs. I wish I could tell you those horror story incidents were uncommon, but unfortunately they are not.

      Idk, if he were to find someone willing to marry him I think he’d find a Bible loophole for it. He’d tell us Andrea would want her kids to have a mother more than she would want him not to marry someone who ________ and declare the marriage godly.

      Interesting! I wonder why they're going so far afield? Is all the land in Brentwood tied up? (or whatever you call land that you can't buy)

      Looks less than 40 mi from RF.  I thought the same thing though.  Not Santa Fe NM.
