So our poor van that I have been disallowed from driving gave out on Kevin on Friday. I spent most of the day picking him up and transporting him from the mechanic to work and back again. We had found a minivan we liked but we were on the fence. The mechanic couldn't find anything wrong with our current van, so we brought it home and went back to the dealership on Saturday to drive it again. Or, at least we tried to go back. We ended up calling a tow truck from the side of the road. Kevin's dad had to pick us up to get us the rest of the way to the dealership. At which point, we decided that we were done messing around with the old van and just bit the bullet to get the new(er) one. It's a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country. This is not actually the one we bought, but you get the idea. It's beautiful inside and out. And it has all the features Kevin wanted plus a few more. I like it a lot, although I would have been happy with one that just made it into town. Suffice it to say that my husband is much pickier about the features than I, and I am happy to benefit from his discernment. Anyway, I'm very pleased with our new van. And thankful that God provided something close to home. Especially considering we drove 4 hours to purchase our last vehicle. Breaking down 4 hours from home would have been incredibly unpleasant.
