Freedom! Freedom! FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOM!

I have lived in Houston for 5 years. (This year does TOO count! :P ) I have NEVER driven in Houston. NEVER.

Until, tonight. I drove myself to Kroger. I bought groceries for my family. I brought said groceries home to the family... BY MY SELF. No one had to drive me. I went when =I= was ready. I didn't have to wait for husband or J to finish what they were doing in World of Warcraft or for them to take a shower. I WENT ALONE.

I got to listen to the radio station =I= wanted in the car. (Ooops... I forgot to put it back on his station of choice. He's in a for a shock tomorrow morning heh) I USED MY BLINKERS. I flipped of the jackass that tried to steal my parking spot at the store. I WENT ALONE!

Ahhhhh....

I know I've been posting a lot of stuff like this lately and I apologize for how superficial and dull they may seem to everyone, but, for me these are major life milestones. ::does Snoopy Dance again::

Not superficial at all! If I'd driven in DC I would be holding a press conference about it! Congrats!!!

Congrats! I'm a new reader and I've lost a significant amount of weight in the past. I know how incredible those milestones feel and I applaud you for it. You can do it!

I drove in Texas all of once, I think. Maybe twice, because I think I drove through Texarkana... but my first experience was Dallas, at 7am... HA HA HA HA HA.
