Tesla Model Y: Update on Ownership after 6 Months in NYC

This month makes 6 months since I went with my husband to pick up our Tesla Model Y we named Baymax. 6 months of ownership and I’m still in love. Husband doesn’t drive much but he has little complaints so far. We love it. It’s been lovely. But of course with it’s small faults.

Issues

I love wagon strollers. It fits both the kids. I can take them anywhere and it’s fun. The kids love it. 4 year old with diagnosed autism and a 1 year old. Both full of energy. I love the wagon strollers. But we ran into space issues. It’s difficult or damn near impossible to get our babytrends stroller wagon inside. I’ve debated the wonder wagon at this point. But not sure dimension wise if it would result in the same issue even though it folds. To fit the wagon we need to push the middle seats very forward. Car seats and all. It makes the front seats uncomfortable and have to find a comfortable position to drive beforehand. Takes a lot of planning. Unfortunately might have to give up the wagon for a smaller stroller. But we shall see if we get the wonder wagon (review on that when it happens. Yay)

Savings

As a New Yorker or living in the city. I don’t drive enough everyday. I work a hybrid schedule and run errands: groceries, appointments, pick ups, drop offs, occasional travels to nearby states. In this moment as I write this blog, I’ve put on 4,629 miles on the car. Monthly that would be about 711 miles. But in days to be more exact: 26.45 miles per day. We owned a CRV previously which on average gave us 27 mpg. Held about 14 gallons of gas. Average 370 miles we would get out of the Honda. I usually filled when it had 100 miles left. Every 2 weeks and spent 27 dollars at the time. Now with raised gas prices: 42 dollars. According to the Tesla App with their new updated I’ve supposedly saved about 98 dollars.

Current Charging Stats

Personally it’s more like 85 dollars but with the occasional road trip I can tell why the numbers would be off. Where I go I can plug into a family members home and let it trickle charge for the weekend. Saving more without supercharge. As you can see I tend to charge more at home which is slow but good for the weekend and the amount of driving I do. I would say the savings goes up since we use ConEds Smart Charge Rewards program.

If you don’t know what that is. It’s a program from ConEd for your EV where you can earn a bit of money back (goes to your PayPal account). It’s like cash back for EV. Use it towards your light bill and the amounts vary each month based on your usage. Average I get back somewhere between 10-17 dollars a month from home charging. The savings go up to 95-102 dollars or use that towards a super charging visit since it tends to be around 15-17 dollars for a 30-85 percent charge here. Whatever works for you. I love the program although it does need my Tesla account to access information. Not sure how I feel about that but I hope the savings are worth it. Here’s my referral link where you’ll get about 25,000 points which converts to 25 dollars your first month of trying the program!

Key Fob: Worth it?

I know the car uses our phones but sometimes it’s in my pocket or jacket. My hands are full. Or maybe I closed the app by accident. The keycard is confusing for the valet people sometimes. I figured why not the key fob. It’s pretty nice to have as back up in case anyone needs to drive the car for emergencies, opens the trunk and frunk, plus I can lock the car right away instead of waiting for a confirmation lock as I walk away. Worth it? Maybe not for everyone. But I have noticed the car unlocks much faster and more reliably than with phone only. Yes I’ve had moments I’m standing in front of Baymax. Trying to unlock and sentry mode is on. It’s like “hello I see you. Open up already” as soon take my phone out. It unlocks. Granted it doesn’t happen often but when it does. I’m stuck fumbling for my phone when I usually have my keys in hand. To me personally, worth it. But I know some people wouldn’t think so.

White Seats: Yay or Nay?

6 months is still early to tell for owning white seats. I personally LOVE the white seats. It appeals to me and of course I added the eye stickers so it looks like I’m sitting on a Baymax. It’s silly and fun. Kids love it. People see it and find it hilarious. Cleaning it has been easy as well. I use water wipes that I buy for my kids and wipe it down. Dry it off with bounty and call it a day. I don’t really eat or drink in the car so no stains that I’m worried about. I hardly wear jeans and if I do. They’re not new jeans, most of my jeans have been washed several times. Overall, white seats have been amazing for us even with both kids. They mainly eat puff snacks and things I can easily vacuum on cleaning day. Crumbs and dirt show more but a good vacuum easily makes everything disappear.

Charging in the City

Living in NYC, charging is well difficult and get out of the way. I say this because super chargers in the city tend to be in parking places where you have to pay on top of the charging costs. I personally find that a bit silly considering but understand it’s a business aspect. I mainly go to Yonkers in Ridgehill for supercharging if necessary. Free parking (for now) and it’s right to your left when you enter. Lots of teslas and it’s close to my office job. Mainly I charge at home where we rent. I’ve been fortunate that where I rent they’re understanding of my charging situation and accommodate by letting me charge mainly on the weekends over night. I’m thankful and I know it can be difficult otherwise for others with apartments. No driveways. No Level 2 charging. I’m curious as to how other New Yorkers with Tesla charge. If you’re one, please comment below!

Conclusion

It’s a wonderful car overall. Might be bumpy for some since I did notice that switching from my Honda. Hopefully some kind of upgrade will help with that but the kids love it. Husband loves it. All of us love it. Safety and investing in the future was our primary goal. I truly believe this will be our car for long term. There hasn’t been any maintenance costs as of yet. Mostly buying things such as pet liner, weather mats, seat covers for the car seats, armrest cover, little things for aesthetics, and such. I do also try to clean the car by hand myself. But might once a year get it detailed for maintenance. Let you all know how that goes.

Sweet Little Escape

My life has been a whirlwind ever since I began working. Between life at home, being a mother and wife, making sure everything and everyone is okay; it’s so easy to forget about myself. There’s not enough time in a day for anything less or more. Plans fall through and don’t work out the way we intended them to because life is unpredictable in that way. Little did I know…

After COVID, the life before the shutdown seems like a friend you grew distant from. You think of them from time to time but you know things are different.

I realized that I found my escape in different things I did in my every day routine to the office. During my lunch break I found a cute little restaurant where the people were warm and welcoming. They familiarized themselves with their customers and know who’s there everyday and love what they do. I’m the kind of person that I fall into routine quickly and almost never stray from what I do everyday.

However, when it came to this place I was on a mission to try out different items from their menu cause it made my lunch breaks fun. I think the chef enjoyed it. Every time I walked in he’s always letting me know about the new lunch special of the day he prepared and asked if I would like to try it. My answer was always “Yes Chef” and if there’s no lunch prepared I usually get something I haven’t tried yet on their menu. Of course I had my favorites and I would rotate between all of those favorites everyday. Along with the specials they would have. Their burgers and tacos were a definite favorite with a sprite or passion fruit juice on the side. Then, I would sit and open my kindle to continue the book I was reading for the week. I felt the stress melt. Wonderful food, quiet reading, and a smile or quick chatter with the chef and/or the owner. I would pay and thank them for the meal and make my way back to finish my shift.

There was something about those 30-45 min that were bliss to me. Knowing that for a moment it was about me. Nothing else. Sometimes I wish I could go back. But, then I sigh and tell myself; Life has moved on. And so have I.


Hope you enjoy this memory that came to me recently. I tend to get nostalgic at times and it’s nice to reminisce on things. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since this memory. So much has happened since then. What’s a memory you have whether pre-COVID or not that you miss that seems insignificant? As always stay sweet everyone!

Let’s Talk Anime!: Fruits Basket

This has been the first anime in a long time that I couldn’t wait to write about. Of course there’s other but this one. THIS ONE. Left me with no choice but to write a review on it. Valentine’s Day is close by and with the upcoming release of the prelude to this anime. I thought why not.

Let me start by saying I didn’t watch the original. This is for the newer fruits basket. If the older one is worth it. I’ll watch it and enjoy that one too.

Fruits Basket is one of those animes that if you have no knowledge or background on what it is. The little summary will confuse you. You’ll read it and probably ask yourself. How can a show about people who turn into zodiac animas but they’re human and this female character be interesting? It has an almost perfect 5 star on Crunchyroll. The character looked pretty. I was like okay I’m going to either cringe or like this. Well, I loved it.

Tohru is someone you must protect at all costs. I understand it. The characters understand that. It’s a given. Most of the time you just want to hug her and make everything better or want to face palm yourself because she always cares about everyone except herself. The show is very slice of life, romance, psychological type genre. You meet the Zodiacs one by one who are all from the Sohma family line. Tohru automatically befriends them all. She’s the light and warmth that brings everyone together. Meanwhile, the curse and bond that holds the zodiacs together has subjected them to abuse from their God and/or their family. Some you see more than others. Especially Kyo, Yuki, Shigure, Haru and Momiji. The others you see here and there. But I believe Ritsu is a definite minor character you hardly see throughout the series. Overall, the characters and their development are wonderful. Tohru’s mother although she passed away before the series begins; is a major character throughout the show. It’s hard to not love her and cry at times for not even meeting her while she was still alive (hence the prelude coming). A lot of tears were shed for each character. There’s times where you’re frustrated, sad and overjoyed. But you start to get the flow of everyone’s emotions and then you’re on this roller coaster of emotions the whole time.

Spoilers Start Here. Don’t read if you plan one watching! Skip until Spoiler Ends

I won’t lie. At first I was so feeling the Yuki and Tohru ship. I found kyo frustrating in the beginning and Yuki was just someone you want to hug. Kyo had this wall that was difficult to read. Eventually you see why this isn’t a thing. How Yuki sees Tohru as a mom instead of a spouse. That’s fine. I actually like how they gradually built up their relationship and how they eased off the whole romance thing to focus on her and Kyo.

My favorite couple overall has to be Haru and Isuzu. The emotions and the way Haru reacts every time he sees her or when she sees him. It’s sweet and bitter due to the emotional abuse she’s endured. Her dedication in trying to break the curse to free them and love openly since Akito (God) would hurt her for loving him and being happy together. The way Haru tries to protect and be there for her while also loving her so passionately kills me since he can’t do much when she hides the abuse she endures with Akito. Isuzu although coming off as mean or distant at first is emotionally damaged from her past and when she cries into Tohru’s arms I couldn’t help but cry with her. Not knowing a parent’s unconditional love and feeling like a burden to those around her to decide to be kind is a lot to carry.

Spoilers End Here!

Honestly, this is only a snippet of so much in this anime. It’s 3 seasons. First two seasons have 24-25 episodes each. Then the 3rd has 13 episodes? There’s so many characters to love, like, hate, dislike that it’s hard to put it into one blog. If you like Romance, Slice of life, with some psychological trauma/drama involved. Check it out. And if you’ve watched fruits basket. Comment below on who your favorite character is and why.

Connecting Again: Much Needed Tarot Pull

I think in life we always want more. Whether it be personally or professionally. That’s okay. We all do at some point or another. It’s difficult to settle into something and wonder if it’s what we want to do for the rest of our lives. There was a point I asked myself: where do I want to be? Where am I going? Am I going to learn here?

I consider any and all lessons in life to be of value. Whether it be good or bad. We are all always in some way or form learning and gaining experience from our current selves in order to serve and/or assist our future selves. Generally as a spiritual person I do believe things happen for a reason. I hope it and believe it with everything I have.

I’m still unsure of who I am. What I want. I have goals and things I want to do. Constantly stressed about the future we will have. Will I teach my children well? When everything fails what will I have left? It’s a thought that can keep me awake at night. I’m sure many others too.

Something else I have always strived to have is connection with others. To have people to uplift and push me to be someone better. I hope I do the same for others. I appreciate the ones who are there for me and tell me I can do this even on days I don’t think I can do it.

Today I felt the need to pull some cards. To connect with my deck again to feel what it had to say. And alas it tells me the same as before. Justice and Ace of cups. That I’ve been wronged in the past and airing it out or perceiving it as part of a greater good benefits me. Meanwhile Ace of cups signals new beginnings. Both of which are generally true. It’s been almost a year of doing Tarot and these cards have brought me comfort like no other. I hope to continue using them through my journey of self love.

Ace of cups & Justice

Love this moon crescent dish I purchased from Midnight Seams that you see in the banner imagine. She’s one of my close friends through motherhood. Also, she has custom or ready to ship shirts. Embroidery items. Vinyl stickers. She’s amazing and can’t wait to see her small business grow more with time. Check her out!

Where Does Time Go?

We are already in the middle of the month!? How crazy is that. Between school starting again and trying to get organize. Things got hectic for a bit and I didn’t blog. But I’m still here and will post here and there to make up for the past couple of weeks. I still due my tarot draws for the week. And interestingly enough yesterday it was 2 cards that came forth rathe than the usual one. Stay tuned for that.

I’m also going to provide an ownership update with Baymax (our Tesla Model Y) and talk about ownership living in NYC, the pros and cons so far, and eventually the accessories I bought. The whole thing.

Updates and overall well being updated coming soon as well. Dream posts. And finish the dream story I started in order to begin another dream story I’ve been wanting to write for a while now. I’ll try to stay more on top of blogging. But, priorities will always come first. Thank you and stay sweet everyone.

Tarot Tuesday: Reflecting on the Past Year and What’s Next

Seven of Wands

Card of the week is Seven of Wands. This is a card for boundaries and challenges ahead. A way of warning to stand my ground no matter how hard it may seem. Jealousy is brewing and others yearn to have what you have.


This past year has been a hectic one. As I reflect on the year. It feels like many chapters have unfolded and I’m no where near the end. I believe there’s more to come. I always feel the need to push forward not knowing where to stop. To continue to climb even though I might fall. I’m grateful for every year that there’s growth and knowledge added. For the experiences and people who came in or out of my life. I strive to have peace, love and success in my life and spread that if possible. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday and if you’re not. I hope it gets better. I do plan to continue blogging and sharing things in pieces. While continuing my NSFW dream story. But we will see. Stay sweet everyone.

Christmas Eve: A Break from Knowledge

Can’t believe it’s almost the end of year. and today is my first day break from college! It’s rough doing part time work, college, two kids and everything else in life. Although it’s two weeks. I’ll be looking into the classes a week before to outline my work and get a head start. As a working mother it’s rough most days to wake up as early as 6:30am-7:45am to fall asleep after 12am. Some days I’m nodding off in front of my laptop or computer chair trying my best to stay awake. Especially now during the season of sickness where if one of us gets sick. Mostly like we will all be sick.


I didn’t blog as much as I wanted to this month. Sometimes being so busy can take it’s toll. Emotionally and at times even physically but I enjoy this. Putting my thoughts and energy into the universe to make things a little more positive for someone or anyone. I try to be there for those I care about and spend the quality time they want or need. Even if it means virtual Starbucks dates with friends as I sit in my car and we laugh about things we catch up on. These small moments are what I love in my friendships with people. The ones I game with, talk to every other day and the ones who uplift each other. The holidays tend to be a time of happiness and even heartbreak. So trying to find the good in a time where things have been dark for some time keeps me going.


With the extra time I have I can fit in some readings in my schedule. If anyone’s interested feel free to reach out in my social links below or text my business number at: +1 (917) 635-7597 so we can set something up. Stay sweet everyone. Happy Holidays!

Tarot Tuesday: Card of the Week and Power Animal Wonders

Ruler of Cups

Back with another Tarot pull for the week. Here we have Ruler of Cups: Balance, Compassion, and Kindness. It signifies a balance between head and heart. A sign of leadership and the balance of emotions. Whether I’m being challenged personally or enduring a challenge. I must remain mature and level headed to keep peace amongst all. Keep in mind that this card is also known as King of Cups when searched.


As you can see I also am using another cloth. As someone who always felt connected to orcas I felt as though this was the perfect cloth to use for my spiritual readings. I sense that there’s a reason I dream of an orca when trouble comes my way and when life becomes overwhelming. I’m still searching and trying to figure out the meaning. Is there a deity at play? A past I’m trying to connect with? A spiritual line I’m accessing? So many questions and I find myself wondering after all this time. Does anyone else have dreams they feel emotionally connected with? Or a power animal that comes to them or has been with them for as long as they can remember?


Many have asked me where did I get my cards. And they’re from Threads of Fate ; they have a good amount of options to choose from and they’re absolutely gorgeous in person. There are many options to Tarot. Pick the one that draws you in. Whether it be from them or cards from Etsy. Only you can choose what works for you and which you feel connected with. Good luck and blessed be everyone.

Tarot Tuesday: Tarot and Oracle Pull

Sorry about not doing a tarot pill last week. Energy was all over and was sick for a few days with a stomach bug going around. Body needed rest and soul needed to recharge.

The Chariot Tarot and The Observer Oracle cards

The Chariot comes forth with willpower, determination and strength. An encouragement from the universe to push forward and stay focused.

The Observer asks me to view things in a different perspective. To remain neutral and trust what the universe has in store. Remain curious and watch everything come to light.


Hope everyone is well and having a happy holiday! Things have been crazy and busy here but I’ll continue to update and do readings. I have been doing personal readings lately. Which is why a couple of days of rest is important as a newbie in this. Stay sweet everyone!

Tarot Tuesday: Card of the Week

Didn’t draw a card yesterday. But it’s never too late to draw and claim energy for the week.

The Moon: Unknown, Intuition, Unconscious

I’ve seen this card a few times. Seems like a lot of things remain unknown and wanting me to tap into my intuition. Through the years my intuition has been what guided me through a lot of emotionally troubled situations. I rather avoid them and live peacefully. There’s many truths I push down and unconsciously it gets brought up to the surface in my dreams. Unfinished business is terrible and some things are better left unspoken.


Being busy is not fun when there’s no time for hobbies. From July til about last week I hadn’t really played video games. But, managed to watch shows while either feedings the kids and playing with them. Most days I rather lay in bed and read or research. Holidays can bring up emotions that get pushed down. But I press on. Move forward and love yourself. The past can be used for growth. The unknown is a scary place.
