Something I don’t miss

There are a lot of things we are enjoying now that we are back living in the States.  However, there is one thing that we enjoyed living without when we were in Korea.  

A car!

Don’t get me wrong – we enjoy having the convenience of a car.  And really – Seattle doesn’t quite have it’s public transportation up to the standards of many foreign cities we visited – so we really need a car living here.  But since we’ve been home, we are now paying for car-related expenses that we never had to deal with in Korea.  And those things add up!  Car insurance, gas…oh, and let’s add in the new car battery we just had to buy today. 

Despite both Micah and I having a car, we still make an effort to walk a lot too (of course, no where near what we walked daily in Korea).  We walk to the nearby mall and Target.  And I’ll walk to the foreign food mart that’s about 1.5 miles away.  We’ll see how long we can keep this up, especially as the temperatures here DROP.
