Going Without My Parking Pass

I’ve looked everywhere I can think of:
  • In the car – in the normal storage spot, under the seat, between the seats, in the glovebox, backseat? Nope.
  • In my purse – outside pocket, inside pocket? Nope. Check all my purses that have been used this summer. Nope.
  • Where we keep the keys. Nope. Coffee table. Nope. Pile of mail. Nope.
  • Rob’s car. His mom’s car (because I did go somewhere with her last month). My mom’s car. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Argh. Where is my parking pass?

I know that I had the parking pass in my car earlier this summer. I used it when my mother and I vacationed in May. I remember putting it in my purse when I valeted my car at a conference in June.

Fortunately, I don’t use the parking pass very often anymore. And when my mom is with me, her pass is usually available (when we remember it).

My current parking pass (if I could just find it) doesn’t expire until next October in 2016. That’s a long time from now and as you know with MS, you hardly can plan when you might need a little assistance by parking closer to your destination.

But having the pass in my car, not needing it, and choosing to park farther away from my destination to purposefully get more steps in for the day (as I routinely wear my FitBit One each day to roughly measure physical activity), makes me feel more confident.

My parking placard serves as a reminder that MS is not nearly as invasive as it once was in my life.

I haven’t decided what I’m going to do right now though, other than deciding to enjoy the knowledge that I’m doing well.
