So, as you can see, sharing a car has been a challenge. It's been nice to not have any car payments and to spend some time in the car with eachother, but let's be honest... i've been driving around WAY too much. This schedule does not include random times when Nate calls and needs me to come get him to run some errands for work, etc.
We've made it work and i've gone through MANY moments of irritation with our situation. Yesterday, I wanted to scream to the world my excitement for what happened! Let me remind you, it's been an entire YEAR that we've been sharing a car.
We bought this:
2006 Honda Ridgeline
Especially now that baby #3 is coming, I'm so excited to not have run out the door first thing every morning!
