Unplanned exercise

I broke the van today! Not cool! SO, not cool! As I was pulling into the driveway today, the van kind of slid in, almost crashing into the garage & making me think the brakes were locking up on us. What the?!?!? We just replaced the brake pads about a month ago! Certainly, that wasn't the problem! So I put the van into reverse, because I couldn't leave it parked as it was. I am able to back up a small distance and put it into drive again, only the van won't go. "D" Drive. Nope, no chance this thing is moving! OH NO! So I get out, and look under the van thinking maybe I ran over something that my eyes didn't see...NOPE. And then I see it! The axle is broken! All I could say, was Aw, Crap! {My words were more unpleasant than that however, but I'll keep it PG-13 for this post!} Another, Aw, Crap! I had to call my husband and tell him the news. This was not going to be good! We only have the one vehicle between our family and he walks to work now as it is. Guess what!?!?! Looks as though I'm going to be walking Camden to the bus stop now as well! With a two year old in tow! {That oughtta be fun!} Yep, I'm going to be getting me some unplanned exercise in. Woohoo! NOT! 18 minutes {for someone that walks faster than I do} of mostly uphill walking, I hope I sleep well tonight!

  1. Ouch, that sucks. That isn't usually a cheap/easy thing to fix either. Hope you guys are able to get it fixed quickly. I know what it feels like to be without a vehicle sometimes, so I understand.
    I know you didn't plan on the exercise, but just think of it as getting a jump on your workout everyday.

  2. Well, it turns out I DON'T have to walk up there everyday! Jim's parent's left a truck at their place when they left for Indy. Just so happens, they left the key with Jim...I...did not know this. Whew!

  3. Oh, well that was a HUGE relief I bet. :)
