Sweet Salvage ~ Rustic Luxe Part IV



So, if I don't manage to get back down there this is the Finale' Post of the 'Rustic Luxe' Event at The Sweet.   I forgot I had Promised Princess T her own Girl's Day Out over the Weekend and it's looking likely we'll be Mall bound!  The Tweens do Love The Mall!  *Le Sigh*   She had initially thought about The Renaissance Festival, but it's not really her 'Thing' and spending money at The Mall sounded much more enticing to her!  *Smiles*




So my Thursday Opening Day jaunt might have been the only chance I'll get, which is Okay really.    The one thing I had to leave behind that I truly would have Loved to have been able to afford was this Taxidermy Armadillo.   I have a Showroom and Booth at 'The Brass Armadillo Antique Mall' so it seemed particularly appropriate!  *Smiles*   Alas, Dead Armadillos don't come cheaply.




And it's important for me not to go over Budget since I'm still saving up for The Young Prince's Driving Lessons.   How I'll find enough for a second vehicle and insuring it with a Teen Man Child behind the wheel is a whole other Story!  *Le Sigh*   But he does really Need to learn to drive and it will be a Blessing for me to have a second Driver in the household again.




The Man will never be able to drive again and so that makes me the Lone Ranger when it comes to providing all transportation for the Family, so I'd like one more person to be able to drive again.   To have someone else who can take anyone to their Appointments or run an errand for me would be Huge!




But the level of Driving School I want him to have is spendy and so I've been Saving Up for it so that he gets the best instruction possible.  They also go with them to take the Test and ensure they receive a License, plus my Insurance rate will be discounted for him if he takes and passes the Lessons.




It's been so long since I've done such things with a Young Adult that I just didn't have it in me to teach him how to drive either.   Not to mention they bring a Car and that will be way easier for him to learn in than my huge Nissan Titan Truck, which even an Experienced Driver sometimes has trouble handling or parking!




Plus he's aching to find Work now that he's out of School and really I don't want to be his mode of Transportation back and forth from a Job every day... that would be like having a Full Time Job outside of the Home again myself!  Not to mention Rush Hour commuting back and forth from the Rural Burbs into the City isn't exactly my Favorite thing in the whole wide World to do daily!  Nope, I'd rather be attending an Event... Winks...
