Have I mentioned that I share my car with son # 2? Well, I do, and most of the time there's no issues with that. I write most days, so I don't need the car a lot. He can take it to school (driving his sister as well), to practice, etc. Yet there are some days [like today] that a third car would be really handy. My daughter needs to go in early today, but son #2 has a late start. So I need to drop her off, come home, then take son #2 back two hours later. Then I'm off to meet son #1 [who flew the coop months ago] for a little while, then I have to turn around and come back to pick up son #2 early because he has allergy shots. Then I drop him off at track practice and have to get fancied up because I have a book event tonight. Then Mr. W has to pick up son # 2 from practice and daughter from play practice--at the same time. Thankfully, they're in the same vicinity.
Bu-sy! Lots of driving around. So, today would have been a good day for son #2 to have his own car. But I have to say these days are rare--and so not worth all the extra insurance and car payments a third car would bring.
I have to keep reminding myself of that today as I buzz around town. Let's not talk about how much writing won't be getting done today...
