So today was pretty easy to think of something to be thankful for. I am thankful I have my own car. This is the first time in a long time I've had my own. It's a POS 2001 Ford Taurus old lady car (that we bought from my Mother-in-Law) but it gets me from point A to point B when I want to go.
Before I had my own car, my husband would drive me to work before he took the kids to school. I would end up at work at least 20 minutes before I needed to be there (an unpaid 20 minutes). Then at noon when I was done I'd have to wait for him to pick me up on his lunch hour. 8 out of 10 times I'd be waiting, sometimes in nice weather but more often in freezing cold. I wouldn't get home until an hour after I was done with work (it's about a 10 minute ride).
With my own car: I don't have to leave for work early. AND when I am done with work, I actually get home RIGHT AFTER WORK! It's amazing. And if I have to go to the grocery store I can do that, Just like a big girl!
Second car: Awesome thing to be thankful for on a snowy Thursday in November!
