Over winter break our family invested in our new family truckster. Well new to us at least.
It's the first car I've owned that has a manual "M" driving option. My husband geeked out over it but you won't see me shifting that way, at least not on purpose. But it did get me thinking about how it might feel to really be in control of this massive machine.
Every time I drive now I can't help but wish I had a master gear stick to control my life.
P - PARK
Give me a break. A mental pause. A week without laundry. I'd settle for a free kit kat.
D - DRIVE
Just let 'er rip! Move on, move up or simply kiss goodbye to the past in the rear view mirror.
R - REVERSE
Some moments we'd love to relive and others we'd love to redo. Or words we'd like to take back. I'd like to start with getting back my pre-preg belly button or ability to stay up past 9 p.m.
N - NEUTRAL
Could all just be calm for just a short period of time? Nothing too high or too low. Like, could our [insert pet, child, body part, appliance] ...just...not...for a day.
M - MANUAL
Just get outta the way. I'm taking control and throwing caution to the wind. Nothing can stop me. I'm doing it this time. Kicking it into high gear. Oh wait, I ran out of gas. See P - PARK.
Too often I feel like outside forces are behind the wheel, while I'm desperately trying to give directions on how to drive and where to go. And then there are the other drivers on the road; what nerve.
What brings me peace in a chaotic life is actually my A - AIRBAG. That pillow, on my bed, that I sometimes get to rest on.
What would you do if you had a gear shift for your life?
Spit Up Support Blog
Yea, I went there. Nearly half of all babies spit up, regularly. Some more, some less, and for many it's just plain scary.
