Time to be a Grown Up

That's my phrase for the year so far. Time to be a grown-up. About things.

Today, specifically, the car.

For those not in the know - my late sweetie willed me her 2002 Toyota Rav4. With a manual transmission. Problem is, I don't know how to drive a stick. And it's a little bigger than anything I would have gotten for myself.

So I don't drive it very often. Ok, hardly it all since I don't know what I'm doing and don't have any insurance for it yet.

Trouble is, it seems to have electrical issues. It had problems before I took possession, and eventually I got a new battery. Which also has refused to start twice now.

So, today, after having a good friend give it a jump start, I parked it at the auto service center just outside my window. Where I can see it right now. So tomorrow will be my first adventure in auto repair. If it's not an issue of me driving  it more.

Time to be a grown-up about the car.

(yeah, I know, I need to come a decision about this car).
