Snow and car breakdowns

Friday was the day when we went to Seattle to see Nutcracker. We were all set to go, right on time...and the van didn't start. And didn't start. I called the DM, who came home. At this point the van was still trying to tick and turn over even though I had taken the key out. The DM had to disconnect the battery, which is the problem. He drove to his work, I took the wheel, drove Matthew to church where a friend was watching him, zipped out of the parking lot headed to Seattle.... and we stopped about 6 miles from our exit. School bus at the side of the road. Make it to the Center parking (the more expensive) flat out run across the sky bridge, and make it just in time. See sillymortalmama. Sell the extra ticket I had accidentally bought so we got Subway after. (I was ready to faint).
The show was amazing of course, I still get tingles every time and already can't wait for next year! Andrew plans to be on that stage someday.
Pick up Matthew, then DM. Rehearsal, eat, rehearsal.
Yesterday, the one morning sale at Fred Meyer. Get jammies and assorted gifts. Cut tree. Rehearsal. Make white bean roasted red pepper hummus and whole wheat mini pitas for DM's store holiday party. It starts to snow, which makes kids happy, but that means today nursery was cancelled- which means I lose a day's work. Still working on van.

We've been having a breaking-things-season as well. I hope the van gets fixed and you can pick up a shift or something. Love and prosperity wishes to you!

Tis the season :) Or as they say, "this too shall pass".Hope the van fix is easy, ours just started squelling which means that brakes are on thier way out. OH joy. Miss you. Where is Athena these days? She never blogs anymore.
