As a car owner, one of the most important to me is the safety of my vehicle every time my family and I travel. It is not just something to compromise. Car safety is a MUST. I take it seriously. Besides, my life here in the USA is not complete without a car. It is one of the necessities to get around. And car shopping requires patience and a little know-how. Recommendations from family or friends should be taken into consideration because they can help with the decision-making in the long run.
Most people just look at car brands when buying one. They don’t take the time to look at the features and mileage capacity. All they think of is how they will look when they are driving an expensive car. I am not about that. I am about economic and safety features. So what car safety feature should we check for when buying a car?
When my husband bought my car, he sought recommendations from immediate families and he checked ratings and reviews on the Internet. He compared features and prices as well. One of the main concerns when buying a car is the Latch System in the back passenger seats. The Latch System consists usually consists of two sets of lower Latch anchors and three top tether anchors which you will find between the back and bottom seat cushions in the back passenger seats. If you don’t know about it, you may check it out in your car now. It is in compliance with the federal government law requiring cars manufactured after Sept. 1, 2002 to have a Latch System.
With this Latch System, you child’s car seats or booster seats will be completely secured. I recommend to go to your nearest Fire or Police Department for proper car seat installation. This way, you are confident. And to prolong the life of your car and your precious passengers, drive safely.
What a week. Since I started going back to work, as a substitute teacher at my daughter’s school, my house has become unorganized. I had two pending Balikbayan boxes which I just shipped out this Saturday. Then I have more stuff left for another box to be shipped out to my family in the Philippines before my nieces and nephews go back to school in June. School is out end of this month so they will be in summer vacation starting April 1st.
I started as a substitute teacher at K’s school February this year. I subbed in a few classes in Kindergarten, in First Grade, and in Fourth Grade. The recent sub position I took was for the Librarian Aide. So I worked at the library for three days. It was fun and a little busy because it was testing week at the school. The testing was conducted in the computer laboratory so the computer classes were joined other classes at library times.
Next week is Spring Break and I can’t wait for our trip to Beaver’s Bend State Park in Oklahoma. My darling daughter is excited as well. We’re going to explore the park again. Right now, I am finishing a few house chores and will go to the playground later.
