My hubby has been away from home for two days. I was in a car accident with Bella the day day that he left and my other baby has been towed to be assessed and fixed. This means that I don’t have a car!
Talk about having your wings clipped! I have become so independent and just go when I want to go and do what I want to do that I am finding this to be quite frustrating. For example, my mom had to drive us girls around today to get all the tasks and shopping done before we go on our trip to Dubai next week. I also have a very big sushi craving at the moment and all I can think of is those bite size salmon roses melting in my mouth and the salmon Californian rolls soaked in soya sauce! If I had a car and Bella wasn’t napping, I would have been at my local sushi place, which happens to be having a 50% off sale, so fast that you would think that my car is made by Batman. I would drive safely of course!
If you are a stay at home mommy and don’t have transport, this could be just as frustrating as you have to rely on others for lifts and I know from personal experience that I started to feel bad about asking all the time and would eventually walk or just not go out. This in itself is also not a good thing! This brings me to the thought that in the town I stay, public transport isn’t very accessible unless you have the money to pay for a meter taxi to take you from point A to point B. You can take the bus between towns but this is often unreliable and with a kid with you, can be quite nerve racking.
So what can be done? Is there a way around this for stay at home moms? The answer to my car problem will come hopefully on Monday or Tuesday as to what is going to become of my beloved Skille a.k.a my car. I hope its good news as I’m not sure how long I can do this for!
