This was my celebration coffee after driving my husband’s car for the first time.
Technically, it’s our car, but it’s pretty much his.
It might seem like a mundane thing to celebrate, but my heart was pounding when I got on the highway for the first time. I haven’t driven since we moved to this area of Japan.
I have a gold license car in Japan which means I get one of the best insurance rates. My husband does too. You only get it if you don’t get in any accident or any tickets for a set amount of years. It’s easy to do if you don’t drive often. My husband’s gold car is more impressive because he drives all the time.
We have a fancy car so I was extra nervous driving it. However, after his panic attacks we decided I would need to take a more active role in driving. So we started my training today. Once I get more accustomed to driving, maybe I’ll take solo trips around the area more.
It would certainly mean more independence and freedom for me. I probably should not have put off doing this for so long. Sometimes it’s hard to just take the plunge.
