Winter has arrived, and I am super scared for my sanity. My son and I have been home all week fighiting colds and I’m already close to going crazy, and today I finally planned to escape the walls of my apartment but after looking at the weather forecast I thought the better of it while we are still sick. -10 with the wind and snow.
I don’t have my liscene which makes being a stay home mom super difficult. I’ve always lived close enough to everything to manage without it. Taking the bus, or taking a cab on the days I could not walk. But with a child travelling by bus means taking my large stroller. I have ventured on the bus once and was mostly embarassed the whole time. My son was only a few months old and I didn’t know how to put the seats up and the bus driver barely waited a second for us to get situated. Needless to say I swore off buses after this experiance.
In a few short months I will be able to take a cab as most offer a forward facing car seat. Not that I myself am a particular fan, I prefer to keep my son rear facing as long as possible but know this will help us get to places much easier.
I’m scared for the winter, I often get depressed during the winter months. It’s my number one goal to get my liscene in the coming year.
I will be 29 in January and pray not to go into my 30s without them.
I’m hopeful I will find a new type of freedom once I get them.
