To kiss 2008 goodbye! This has been the year of "what can go wrong will go wrong". Our latest fun is the alternator went out on our van, but luckily, we are safe at Rob's mom with the boys. We were here yesterday for a visit and when we tried to leave, we couldn't. We actually had the van running for about 10 minutes to warm up when it started to die, so thank goodness it died in her driveway and not 10 minutes down the road in the freezing cold with the boys!
So this morning, I am sitting with the boys having breakfast. Brandon, always the creative one, is having his breakfast while wearing Matthew's gloves. When he is done, he's going to watch cartoons and Matthew is going to play computer games. I'm going to take a nap with Rob on the living room floor because we've had only 3 hours of sleep.
Around noon, Rob is going to start tearing down the van so when his mom gets home, we can go pick up the part. We are waiting for it to warm up. As of now at 9:15 a.m., the temperature outside is 6 degrees with a wind chill of -10. That's COLD! I really hope that a belt slipped and we don't have to replace the entire alternator.
Time for my nap!
