Mini Van

I feel like I have blogged about nothing but the giveaways I have found the last few days so I am going to do my best to type up something invigorating here. I am not feeling so hot, but I think it's because I ate cheese and sour cream at lunch today. Can someone please explain to me why I cannot remember something as simple as not eating things that will make me feel awful! I know it will make me feel bad and as I took the last cheesy bite of my crunch wrap supreme a little light bulb went off that said plainly you're an idiot. The worst is it's not as if I can't eat something. I just can't remember to take a pill before I eat either. It's really hard to do a complete 180 on your lifestyle. I can't imagine being told I have diabetes or something wrong with my cholesterol. I would die, because clearly I can't tell myself not to eat something that is harmful to my well being. Luckily, being lactose intolerant doesn't actually cause me harm, it just makes me want to puke my brains out.

We are supposed to go to Gatlinburg this Thursday afternoon and stay through Memorial Day weekend. Our minivan, of course heard this news and was not at all pleased at being driven 9 hours straight. At least that's what I am guessing it thought since it decided not to start over the weekend. Mike graciously dropped it off at the mechanic for us this morning and hopefully we will know tomorrow morning what is wrong with it and how much it will cost to be fixed. We think it's an electrical problem. I was talking about it today, and really we can't be too upset. This will be the first major (if it is major) repair that we've had to do on the van since we bought it. We haven't put much money into it at all unless you count the endless flat tires. It's been a good car. Part of me wishes it can't be saved for a reasonable price and we can get a new van. Mostly because neither of the windows roll down. Drive-thrus are a blast! Where money for a new van is going to come from, well that I just don't know. So in reality I hope they say, "It's going to be $20 to fix, it will last you at least 4 more years guaranteed and have fun in the Smoky Mountains!" Unfortunately, I am sure this will not be the case and it will be quite irresponsible for us to go anywhere except to the store to buy more ramen noodles for dinner every single day this week. Oh and Alice turns two on Sunday! YAY!
