~Ride~

I went car shopping today, after I went to the dentist.  I’m not sure which was worse.

I miss my old car, the one I left in Oregon.  You know what else I miss?

Coloring books and Colorforms.  Holly Hobbie.  Watching Little House On The Prairie.  Riding my bike down a steep hill, as fast as I could with no helmet on.  Bottle Caps candy, and Zero bars.  Colored tights and tight braids.  Sticker books and paper dolls.

Now it’s car payments and electric bills. Parent-teacher conferences and grocery shopping.  Making sure there’s always toilet paper in the house.

Being a grown-up is hard.

  1. I couldn’t agree more… I know how you feel about car shopping, especially when it wasn’t expected. Hang in there, beautiful!

    1. There’s a store by my house that sells them, but they are just not the same as they were 35 years ago….they are somehow…bigger? or something….but thanks! 🙂 ~Ginger
