Meet Our Newest Family Member
No, no. Not new 'people' family members. Nor pets. With adults and near adult children I am done with the people variety of new family members, and I am absolutely not a pet person. Ask anyone who knows me in real life (although Frances' Travis is mighty cute, even to me!)
Miss Sunshine is the very excited, and proud new owner of a Mazda 3. It is one of the few things that has her keen to be driving again, after Chelsea's untimely demise. This has been her dream car for a quite a while now, and I'm not really sure why a 20yo gets to have her dream car already. I had to wait 'til I was 44! But this car fit the desire and the budget I had set for Miss Sunshine (read: I wasn't willing to hand over any more than the set budget!). A budget she agreed to, by the way, because she will need to repay it.
So meet Luna.
She is officially metallic blue, but looks a bit purple in the right sunshine. Luna is now trying to figure out where she belongs in the driveway real estate pecking order and we're back to shuffling cars again. Someone is going to need to move out before Mr Busy gets are car in a couple of years (less if he had his way 🙄).
Meanwhile, last night I took Miss Sunshine to drive on the dirt road that caused all the kerfuffle in the first place. It was not without some high, but controlled, emotion, but it was an uneventful drive and all ended safely back home again. All that is left now is prayer for healing her mind of the fear.
