Well I did it

Yup.  I got my license.  Despite coughing/hacking and sneezing the whole time through it.  Only got 15 points docked off too (Had a max of 45 to be docked.)  10 for taking a right too wide and 5 for going too slow.  Heck it's March break,  kids were out and playing, you know kids can be stupid so I was going 10mph because of the dumb kids.  Oh well...I knew I was doing right for my driving ability.

I wasn't going to go through with it.  Why?  Because a few days before I put my car into the ditch.  You got that right.  IN...THE..DITCH.  I was out practice driving with my husband.  We went too far up a country road for his liking so he wanted me to turn around.  I pulled into this farmer's driveway and started to back out, you know do the whole Uturn...well I was too far to the right,  was like 2 inches from his mail box, but still OK right?  Well as I started to give it to make the turn,  the mud under the front end gave out and we fell into the ditch.  Rear of the car was on the shoulder,  the nose was in the ditch, and 3 wheels were in the air.  Luckily the farmer was home and towed us out.  My instructor who saw it yesterday said that I would have made it if the ground were more solid.  oh well.

So tonight I'm going to be making pork Katsu.

Yeah I make some wicked Japanese food, so I will blog/photograph the whole thing as I make it.  I just thought I would let you all know that I'm actually driving now.
