We sold the van this week since we were only using it for our once a month road trips. The rest of the time the van sat out on the street with no purpose.
It’s been a year already since we went down to one car. We have never missed the second car and it’ll be interesting to see how it feels not having a car at my disposal for the first time ever. We get a lot more exercise than we ever got before, and the exercise is just a natural part of every day.
We may need a car again in the future, but for now we’re better off without it.
I see so much when I’m walking through town and through all the other towns around here. It looks different on foot than it looks driving by it. I’ve been enjoying walking through Beaverton a couple of times a week. It’s a great little town. Thursdays are my long day now. While Tate takes his first class, I spend a couple of hours in the park reading and watching all the families in the park. When Tate’s done, he and I eat an early lunch in the park, then we walk over to their library to pass the four hours before his next class. The library is a really nice building with lots of wood detail inside, solar panels on the roof and plenty of room inside to sit and read or talk. It’s been a great place to spend time with Tate for a few hours a week.
