*heavy, heavy sigh*

Well, this vacation did not go at all as I had hoped.

Michele got the car back on Friday which was a full week after when we had planned to take off. As indicated in my last post, it really was the skidillion-billion dollar repair to the steering column.

So sad.

And as much as I love everybody on our list of visits, I am heart-broken that I didn’t get out to see Bev (Power) Martin, Karen (Sweet) Cantwell and Patti Jones. It’s been y.e.a.r.s since I’ve seen them.

So sad.

Michele retreated to Jim and Colleen’s and recuperated in resplendent luxury.

But! here are all the things that turned out great!

  • We get to do the trip next year…. consider yourselves alerted
  • Wade figured out that there is an impending class action suit on BMW steering columns, so Michele might get the repair costs back!
  • We were home with Danielle when the medical system finally figured things out and we could all do the happy dance
  • I was home when we found out that Wade is pre-diabetic and I was able to drive him insane with massive lifestyle changes
  • We were not driving when the steering column failed  and as a result were not stuck in Thunder Bay for a week waiting for a part, or alternatively, and more importantly, did not go over a cliff because the steering failed.  (Sandy Graves says this is proof that the Christopher medals and beads worked)
  • Michele gets to spend a week in Toronto helping Nicole get ready for her wedding in September and helping Miss Danielle get ready to return to school at Queens.  Yay!

So, all in all, life is good.

You will all be subjected to another round of posts a year from now.

With love from the Chicks
