I can finally drive without fear of making some horrible mistake, and now I'm actually enjoying it!

Good luck! I won't try to comfort you because it is always terribly scary, lol.

*laughs* Yeah. And Mom's no help. She says that they're just going to throw me behind the wheel and set me loose on the roads. I'm thinking (hoping!) that they'd at least give me *some* instruction first, seeing as the last time I was behind the wheel of a car was over five years ago, and all I did was inch around my high school parking lot...

I highly recommend starting in a parking lot first and doing figure 8's and such until you feel comfortable with the car. Office building parking lots are good because if you go there in the evening it's completely deserted. Ari's dad took me out to one my first three lessons and it really helped me feel confident. Nothing's worse for learning than being scared to death on the roads and not being able to control the car yet.

*nods* Mom's talking about taking me to a deserted parking lot tonight and letting me get some practice. *crosses her fingers*
