The Joys of One Car

When Matt and I moved to Long Island, we decided to only bring one vehicle. We thought it would be a good economical move and good effort on our part to join this whole "green" movement. And, it has been good. We have only one car to insure and keep up. We only need space to park one car (for some reason, having a 2+ car garage is rare here...). And, Matt hardly ever drives because he runs to/from work.

However, the downside to having only one car, is that when some hooligan decides to do a smash-and-grab job on the passenger window to steal your Garmin, you are stuck driving home on a 20 degree night with glass flying everywhere. Score.

Matt is waiting for the police and I am inside figuring out where to rent a car... because we only have one and it's in need of a little love.

ugh! that is awful! Hope that everything turns out ok.

And I second Ashley here, you are so calm sounding. Even though I refuse to use "mean words" around Henry, I would have choice words if this happend to us!

Thanks for thinking I'm calm... I tend to be that way with the "bigger" dramas in life. Things like this are so unexpected and unplanned for that I just roll with them. It's the little things that eat at me... if we are 5 minutes late somewhere or if I forget one ingredient at the store , my mood quickly goes sour. Those are things over which I plan and control, and all of my "reactive energy" goes there!
