Last Night

Last night I decided to take the boys into the city for McDonalds and some impromptu Christmas Shopping. We had decided that since hubs was gone hunting, now was the perfect time to get his Christmas gifts bought and hidden away.

What I didn't take into account was that I would get to the city at the exact time that Rush hour traffic would be at it's heaviest. I'm not a horrible driver, I mean, I don't have to take out extra travel insurance to get to the grocery store, but I am a TIMID driver.

I am not a fan of changing lanes in heavy traffic, nor do I feel comfortable driving with cars on both sides of me. At one point, when going from my place to the mall, I have to change two lanes, and it was pretty scary for me. The first time, I had to cut in front of a semi truck, and the second was on the bridge, and that one was harder.

It's really amusing to me, how PROUD I feel when I have successfully driven myself somewhere. And it's even funnier to hear my children congratulate me on not getting lost!

I'm afraid to drive on the freeway, so you going out and doing that in spite of your fear is way cool to me!
You go, girl!
