June 4th is like the edge of a cliff to me, because if I haven't taken and passed a road test by then my driver's license expires entirely and I have to go back to driving with a friend until I can take the test again. Thank you graduated licensing system and also, me, for not just getting this stuff taken care of when I was 16 or even driving as much as once a month over the past year or two.
(I'd rather walk.)
To take the test I have to book one, and to book one I have to call my driving school friend and get some new lessons in. I've put up a few speedbumps on the calendar to make me stop and do this and all I've done is slow down and panic. But let's be serious:
This weekend is Easter.
If I can't make the call in the week that follows Easter, I am in real trouble.
But if I make the call and don't get out driving a lot I am also in trouble because my driving instructor is going to put me on the highway as fast as it takes to get there from my house and I will probably have a heart attack from the shock. So....
This week is all about not procrastinating. I gotta clear the slate of all distractions!
And that means finishing making some stuff for a gift swap, starting making some Easter decorations, knitting more sweater for a friend's book, and maybe using the vacuum cleaner, all before Monday.
Plus maybe coming up with a few more plausible excuses for not driving. You think?
