Crossing Fingers

Today will be the moment of truth.

Remember how the van bit the dust?  Yes, well it has been sitting at the car shop since then until we could decide what to do with it.  Much is involved in that decision.  First we have to clear everything out, which in itself will be epic.  I have everything from sunscreen to boots that don't fit anyone to my my marriage certificate.  ha.  Really.  Then we have to decide where to dump it.  Did you know that there is a fine to bring it to a dumpster???  Absurd.

Procrastination patience always prevails.  My dad just so happened to run into the Car Dealer and he delivered good news.  If we can drive the van to the lot, and they can find something wrong with our right axel (it's been recalled) then they will give us either a rental car until we buy a new car, or they will give us money towards a new car.

I didn't want us not having a car to be a family affair, but my dad and Mr Incredible are going to try try try to make the van drive from the shop to the store.  My Dad following Mr Inc in case the car breaks down.  When I told my dad that I would follow him so my Dad didn't have to be involved, he looked at me as though I was asking him to direct me toward the best dating sites or to give me internet fax reviews.  In other words, he thought it was absurd for me to risk waiting on the side of the road with the girls in tow, while we waited for the tow truck.

So everyone silently at your computers say a little "vroom baby vroom" for me.  And the monstrosity called minivan.


  1. who the heck did you superimpose in the background, ha, ha!

    just in case you were wondering, i like ha, ha over lol...just seems more realistic, though in reality, i never laugh...HA, HA!

  2. fingers are crossed. Define "drive":)

  3. It's great to know that you have decided on what to do with your car. And I believe that whatever you do is really what your heart's desire. As for me, I've been dying to buy this car that I saw near our home so what I did was to sell my old car and buy the car of my dreams to a buy here pay here dealers (Indianapolis area) and I loved it! I did not regret selling my old one to this car that's so great!
