I’ve been writing this post in my head for some time…
still not sure what I think about this new stage of my life.
(actually I know what I think, I don’t like this part of this stage.)
sometimes I really don’t like change.
I know it can be good and all that, blaa blaa blaa.
but often I just want to stay right. where. I. am.
I’ll cut to the chase and just say it.
I now drive a van.
and I must say right off the bat, it’s an incredible blessing. it was a gift!
but I’m still processing the implications of this.
yes I know we were out growing my awesome little honda accord.
and by far out growing my husbands acura.
but still… I want to be whinny about this….
iiii don’t waaaanna drive a BIG van.
but this is practical right now. babies are small but, man, do they take up alota space!
I think there is a “loser cruser club” among some of my friends. (those that own mini-vans)
but this ain’t no MINI-van.
If it was a contest I think my van could eat all you-all’s vans for a snack!
and you out there driving your nice new (or new-ish vans) I don’t wanna hear any more complainging about your MINI-van or come and I’ll trade while you sleep!
maybe I can’t complain about the year… it’s a whole 4 years newer than my ’90!
The newest vehicle I’ve ever owned! Maybe I should be celebrating THAT!
still, I’m not complaining about the van. I’m more whinny about this new place I am in life.
My son called it “mommy’s truck” today and I wanted to cry.
It’s definitely not a girly-van.
(but I’m seriously contemplating some girly accessories!! pink furry steering wheel cover here I come!)
my next b-day I’ll be the big 3-0.
maybe this is all part of that??
but really! that’s not so fun…
here you go, getting older… so now drive this big thing…
I think I might be having an early life crisis b/c of the vehicle I now drive. I thought when you have these you get a little convertible?!
I’m pretty sure I’d be having my little fit here no matter what van I was driving.
Sooo I should probably wrap up my little pitty-party and grow up.
Thanks for listening to me whine, vent, whatever this was (if you’re still reading)
I am so very thankful for this gift! The possibilities for driving more ppl and things around IS actually a little exciting.
And if you are still reading… I’ll leave you with this little article. It’s short (hence the blog name “22 words”) but you HAVE to watch the video clip! SO funny! my sister sent me the link saying it made her think of me.
wonder how many years it will be until I ever drive a car again.
Oooh, that’s scary, not gonna go there today.
