Feeling Older

So I guess this goes along with getting older. We(Rod and I) did something I thought we never would. We bought a Mini-van.(Rod HATES Mini-vans or rather Mini-van drivers, see his blog for more details) It's 95 Dodge Caravan, about all we could afford. It does have air conditioning and power everything which is very exciting!! Our car is just to small to tote around everything a family requires, and having only one vehicle was a real hassle. We were debating getting another vehicle and knew there was no way we could afford something new. This vehicle came into the possession of a friend of a friend, the owners basically walked away from it because they didn't want to put any money into it. So it got a new transmission and some other work done and we bought it at a pretty reasonable price. So now we officially own a "family vehicle" and it is making me feel old!!!

Hey, I could be a driver on our trip to Ikea now!! Have we set a date yet?

have you considered going to an OA meeting? the thing is, i know it doesn't replace my church family, but it provides a certain and very important and useful sense of awareness about the particular weakness from which we suffer. many other believers attend, realizing that it is not an attempt to escape accountability, but it is a tool. iron sharpens iron. the 12 steps and 12 traditions are rewritten and explained in a very eye-opening and helpful way. and of course it only begins to describe the Christian Way of Life, but it really helps. it works. i don't know how to e-mail you direct, so if i have said too much, please let me know, i will try to get in touch by e-mail next time.

Oh Ikea!!!
It is about time you got a second vehicle. Now you can fit the stroller in the back and still have room left over...
