My poor, neglected blog

It's been four months since I posted here! That's terrible!

I'm going to try to do better. It was a long, difficult summer. Things are improving.

My next-door neighbors, the ones who cut down my favorite tree AND brought all sorts of vermin into my life, have decided to move to Florida and put their house up for rent. At the beginning of this summer, *we* had planned on being the ones to move, but our plans fell by the wayside as we contemplated spending loads of money on other things. Now that we've decided not to go that route, we're re-contemplating a move.

Yes, we still own a car. But, we've been doing a lot more walking and using public transit, and it's really not so bad. In fact, I kind of prefer it. For instance, yesterday I was driving across the SAME intersection where my accident happened in March, and the SAME thing happened -- only instead of getting slammed into, I just got the horn-and-finger for *daring* to let pedestrians cross before completing my right-hand turn. (I guess I didn't get the memo that it is now okay to run down pedestrians!) I am so sick of drivers and their egos. It's much nicer to let someone else do the driving or let my feet take me places.

I can't even remember what else I had written about here before my long absence. Anyhow, I'm really going to try to keep up with this blog, I promise!

I never had a car to need to drop driving - lol. but yes, FEET RULE!
more natural/less stress/no fighting tempers and tension/not so much danger/cheaper to buy shoes too...
i could never agree to be a driver, myself - shudders - i NEED to be natural, or life is just an existence for me...

the more peeps who break out from the car-need world, the better- CONGRATS!!!!!!!!

Glad you're back! As you can tell I deleted mine for now, was going there enough and no one was reading anyways, LOL!!

I would love to ditch my car, but my town is not pedestrian friendly. Our bus system sucks and cabs are UBER expensive...I think maybe because they don't drive around and compete or anything you have to call ahead and wait for them to pick you up.

I do walk to stores nearby and the park, but that's all that's nearby unfortunately. One thing is for sure, the gas prices are forcing me to drive less, I don't go if I don't need to, LOL!!

glad the crap neighbors are moving, but renters? (Says a renter) eek... That's often not good...
