And no, not just Zoe. I thought that 39 and 1/2 weeks pregnant was a good time to go ahead and sit a drivers test. You know, cause I could do with the extra stress and all.
I've been to 4 Drivers Ed lessons, which went well, and though I had more which I'd paid for still booked, I realised I wouldn't have a chance to get them done before having the baby, and I though, heck why not go for the test. If I fail, no big deal, I'll consider this one a practise test.
The guy who was testing me was a grumpy old man who was very intimidating and rude. After the test I bawled my eyes out to Rene, I was shaking and felt like throwing up. I felt soooo upset. Rene was comforting me and then was surprised when I slipped into the conversation that I had actually passed! I sure wasn't behaving like I had passed. But I was intimidated and scared, not to mention hormonal, and the test was not a pleasant experience.
But, I have my licence now! I'm still pretty scared to drive and will be doing as little of it as possible, and it will be a while until we can get Rene a vehicle to get to work in so I can have the car during the day. But it's nice to know I can score it off the to do list. I'm a licenced driver now, something I thought I'd never accomplish. And it's wonderful to think of the freedoms this will grant us in future.
So yay! :
