Adjusting to My Truck

Here on CoffeeTattoos, I don’t have a real type of post. But even so, this isn’t anything that I would typically post about.

I got my truck about a month ago. And even though it’s the vehicle I pretty much learned to drive in, I’m still adjusting to it.

I named her Old Miss Bessie.

She’s a 2001 Ford Ranger, and she has just over 101k miles on her.

Kept in really good condition by my grandparents, so she’s not something that’s really a worry for me.

But since she’s got so many miles on it, there’s some maintenance that needs to be done. I need to do an oil change. I also need to check the spark plugs, PCV valve, and the serpentine belt.

Nothing that should be too expensive if I do it on my own.

Having my truck now, and my grandmother talking about her health going downhill, it scares me a little. But as long as I have this truck, she’ll always be with me. I don’t want to think that way though. It’s just too saddening.


Here she is, Old Miss Bessie

About Me

Hello! Welcome! My name is Katy!
You can find me drinking coffee until it’s time for wine. Currently have 5 tattoos, but plans for more are in the works.
I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement. I’ve been in a birthmom support group since November 2018, and will be leading my own come May 2023.
On Sunday mornings you can usually find me in the nursery or on the production team at church.
Various times throughout the year, you can find me staying with someone’s dog(s) while they’re away on a trip – so don’t be surprised if there are stories or pictures every so often.
