Jonathon and I spent the entire afternoon shopping - mostly for his mission trip. He leaves Wednesday. Anyway, we had a shaky start that began with the van sputtering and acting as if it would die all the way to Gaylord. What could the problem be?
Turns out it was because Jeff left it sit out all night during a heavy rain. The engine got wet and, since this van is 18 years old with more than 200,000 miles, it wasn't taking the moisture too well. We made it safely (driving 40 mph all the way there) and I relaxed a bit.
We did Wal-Mart, Goodwill, the bank, Dollar General, Meijer, and Kohl's. I thought I would die of exhaustion! In the end, Jonathon got most of his shopping finished and I got the grocery shopping done. Tonight I'm playing catch-up. I'm hoping to make it to most of my following list (blog hopping) because it's been a little bit too long since I've been to many of them. I especially like visiting the Thankful Thursday posts.
