Life in a big city can be challenging, and from the day I first moved to Chicago over four years ago, I struggled with having to walk for groceries and for various errands, as well as hunting down parking after a long day of work. This one time, I spent over an hour looking for a parking spot by my apartment before having a meltdown, to which I called Joe sobbing my eyes out. Anyway, the solution to this drama was for Joe and I to move out to Oak Park, which is a western suburb about 15 minutes outside of the actual city and for me to get rid of my car.  It was the perfect blend of city and suburb!
From that point forward, I vowed I could conquer this city without a car…and besides – Joe has a car, so he can just drive me everywhere I need to go – right? Not to mention we live next to the Metra, and the ‘L’, so I can just take a train everywhere too.
“I’ve got this!”
Well, after a year and a half of not having a car, I can tell y’all this much…there are times that I just want a car! I want to go where I want, when I want. I want to sing really loudly to Katy Perry without the awkward stares I get from other passengers on the train. I want to cruise along with the windows down and pretend I’m famous and really cool. I want to go get my nails done, or my hair did, or shop till I drop without Joe judging me! For the love of God, sometimes I just want to get in a car and have nowhere to go and no place to be, but just feel the freedom behind the wheel.
This past weekend, I got just that! I was able to take a car for an ultimate girlie day, without all of the hassle of actually owning or renting a car. I pampered myself with a manicure, pedicure, a little football at a pub (gotta support my Gators), and eyelash extensions (the truth on those coming soon!), before dropping the car off in a lot right by my apartment (literally RIGHT. BY. MY. APARTMENT). Bing, bong, boom – the best of both worlds!
What is this magical unicorn/magic carpet I speak of – well none other than Enterprise CarShare! I have always been loyal to Enterprise brand, as I respect and appreciate their passion for customer satisfaction, so it didn’t take any convincing for me to want to give this program a try. It’s simple: apply for a membership, download the app, and view vehicles in your area - available to book by the hour or for the day, 24/7.
Granted I don’t need a car for the typical day to day, but there will be times when I want or need a vehicle to function. Heck – last week when Joe was out of town and I carried home what felt like a thousand pound bag of dog food, this Enterprise CarShare thing would have certainly come in mega-handy!
