Well, the topic on my mind today is “driving”. For the 12 years we have been together I have allowed my LO to drive us, because otherwise if I’m driving she is telling me every 90 seconds what to do next! Argh… I couldn’t stand it! so it was easier to just let her drive. So, that was our “normal”; now it’s very scary driving with her. Twice she has gone out the “wrong” way; I can’t talk to her while she is driving because she has to “concentrate”; and she has developed a mild case of road rage. Mild in that she hasn’t run anybody off the road, yet….( she doesn’t own a gun either!)
So the solution is: I say I want to drive my “relatively” new car and I practice extreme control of my mouth. Remember , every 90 seconds she is telling me how to drive; what lane to drive in; how fast or slow I should be going; where to turn and who to honk the horn at!
At least if I engage her in conversation she’s less likely to give commands. Discipline; prayer; mantra- I know I can do it! It also helps to let out the screams of frustration while I’m parking the car in the garage.
