van no go @ 07:11 pm

Current Mood: grumpy grumpy

Our van died this afternoon, with an emphatic "kaTHUNK!" Engine siezed up, threw a rod, who knows, but it's DOA. Fortunately only a couple of blocks from the house so we didn't get stranded anywhere. And thanks to knightaudit and roina_arwen's help we made it to the LexFA holiday party after all

We can use busses for my work and the kids' school, but after-school programs are out. (Fortunately they're off a couple weeks anyway for the holidays.) No grocery trips or other errands (like Christmas shopping). And since Gazer's mom finally got her own place and moved out last weekend, we can't exactly just borrow her van any time we need it.

We had too good a year, I guess. Money was finally starting to get tight again a couple of weeks ago, now this. Sometimes I wonder what the Cosmic One has against our family ever getting ahead. Every time we seem to be gaining ground there's some major setback and it starts all over again.
