I've been driving with hubby's constant guidance for the longest time and have been itching to drive somewhere without being babysat. When I went back to work in January, I told myself that I need to learn to be more independent, hence, drive myself anywhere I need to be. For years, I have been incapacitated whenever my husband couldn't take me to places I need like work, mall, etc, and those times resulted to furious days of arguments initiated by me.
Now all these talk about gas price and taxi fare hikes are really something to think about. From our place going to work, I usually have to pay about a hundred bucks for a one-way cab whereas it only takes a hundred worth of gas back and forth. So today, I summoned all the courage that I have and drove myself to work without my husband.
I gotta say that I was so proud of myself. So far there were no boo-boos and I got to work safely. The best part was that I was able to park the car in 1 shot instead of the usual 10-15 minute tries. I wish my hubby could've been there to see me!
