Just thought I'd let you know.

I PASSED MY DRIVING TEST THIS MORNING!!!!!!!!!

After all of the MVA crap, I am now a provisionally licensed driver in the great state of Maryland!

Diabetes 365 - Day 94 Licensed!
(Today's Diabetes 365 picture, I'm on day 94.
You should stop by and see what we've all been up to!)

So if you are in the DC/Maryland area and happen to see a red Town & Country, a grey VW Beetle or a teal VW Beetle, WATCH OUT! I'm only kidding my mom says I'm actually a very good driver, and she is not just saying this because she's my mom. She stopped holding on to the side of her seat awhile ago!

Now all I need is that yellow Mini!

Congratulations!! I remember when I got my driver's license (though it seems like that was so long ago now). That's great, and should open many doors to opportunity down the road. Even though I now live in NYC, I still have my license (and a car), and couldn't imagine how life would be without it!

MVA crap is right,I feel your pain.I'm still experiencing sticker
shock with every DMV switch I go through.
STAY SAFE(and let the crazy drivers do whatever crazy thing they're going to do,which is pretty much a given in MD) ok,sorry if I sound too much like a parent..lol-have fun too!

Finally - yay Jillian! Now, drive carefully out there and stay off your cell phone while driving.

Jillian said...

Thanks everybody, it has definitely been an exciting day! I'm glad you're able to celebrate a little for me too.

Scott, I'm very happy about this and can't wait to see all the places I will go... I can't imagine being without a car even in a city like NYC! Now I'll have to start saving so I can have one of my own.

Heidi, MVA is soooo annoying. The people there are also sometimes very rude. I'll stay safe and try to have a little fun. Maryland's licensing system helps to provide a bit of safety before the fun comes along. I have to wait 5 months to drive anyone under 18, so no friends in the car to distract me.

Colleen, driving with a cell phone with a provisional license starts your provisional status over. Which means I would have to start the time over for allowing having friends in the car and driving after midnight etc. I think it's something like 18 months of provisional status so no cell phone for me!

Congratulations, Jillian! I am so happy for you! I'll tell you what I still tell my kids when they leave, BE CAREFUL - meaning: watching out for all the crazy drivers out there. Okay, I'll take my mom hat off now. :)

Thanks for the welcome and the eyebrow commiseration! I tried to fill them in by putting mascara on the stubble...awful!

Congrats!

Cara said...

How fun! I'm happy for you. Be careful driving up there! Compared to down here, I think everyone drives crazy. LOL! Maybe it's just cause we're slower. And there are no places around me where there are so many lanes of traffic!
