Mark is working on a plan to go scout out several places we might move to. That won't be for a few weeks yet, but until then I have to get refamiliarized with driving the car and doing things for our shop.
I have to learn to drive the stick shift without jerking it - and without getting stranded on hills etc... before I can go out with Esme in her car seat. I drove to the post office yesterday by myself. I have trouble with the stick shift in general, and this car has a starting problem as well. It gave me trouble three times just on the way back from the post office, but I was able to get it acting right again.
I was going to go do some shopping today, but decided it could wait for another day. I don't want to leave my baby to go buy things that aren't immediately needed -- it feels silly, and she is perfectly safe and happy here with Daddy but I definitely had trouble letting go enough to make the trip.
Heh, you're doing about 1000% better than me with a stick!
Just remember clutch deep.
A stick! I'd be just as cautious, seeing as I learned years ago and haven't kept up with it.
We barely have automatics here - it is all stick!
Look at it this way - once you can drive that car, you'll be able to drive anything. Personally, I like it and it's only my most recent car, purchased about a year ago, that is an automatic.
Stick shifts are easy. My Civic is the first automatic I've ever had.
Baby pix! She's just so darn cute! And so....established looking.
