Big decisions are not my thing. And by not my thing, I mean I avoid them at all costs. In all honesty, they physically make me sick*. This is not a great characteristic to have as a military wife... but I have it, and manage (more or less).
I've been car-less since 2wks before we actually PCSed here, and my time at home I had to borrow my parents' car, to say my freedom of getting places has been small is an understatement. So... I purchased a used car. Without my father. Which is a HUGE thing for me. For my prior cars he was my go-to guy, he went with me, test drove it (even though I did too), checked everything under the hood, etc. But, now he's an ocean away...
I'm praying I didn't mess up.
Oh... yeah... it's a VW Passat, and if you didn't know (I didn't) you're suppose to use premium unleaded fuel, sigh, didn't think to ask about that. At least premium fuel on base is the same as regular unleaded off base.
*It's bad... ranges from not sleeping, stomach problems (involving diarrhea/throwing up), elevated heart rate, excessive sweating ...sorry for the TMI, but... does this happen to any of you?
