I have a confession to make. I really like the replacement car that the insurance company has provided for us while we wait for the paperwork to go through and for our damaged car to be inspected.
All three car seats easily fit in the back, the radio works so we can rock out to They Might Be Giants as I drive along, and it's so pretty and shiny. The car only has 800-odd miles on the clock. I've never driven a brand-new car before! It's really exciting.
So even though I should be walking, especially now that the weather is nice and I really need to get my butt back into running again, I'm planning on driving down the road to pick up Eldest Child from nursery school.
I'm also hoping that we'll still have the car at the end of the month, when my mom wants me to visit her with the kids for a week. It's a 3 hour drive, and wouldn't it be nice to drive in luxury? You know it.
