I made the mistake of looking forward to my weekend again.
No, the house wasn’t broken into again.
We are, however, now stranded. Upon trying to pull into a driveway we hit a curb or something, and soon smoke started pouring from the hood.
We had the car towed, but it was a Saturday and nothing was open. The tow driver said he would take it to a shop first thing this morning. We walked onto the ferry, where my loving father-in-law picked us up and took us to his house.
We’ve had a great weekend visiting and playing games, and it was good to see family.
This morning we are trying to figure out if they will actually be able to fix our car or if we’ll have to leave it and come back for it.
In the meantime, we received some other sad news. My aunt Lois died yesterday. It came as a hard surprise as she had just completed cancer treatments and returned home from the hospital. We thought things were just starting to look up. She will be sorely missed.
I’ll take the opportunity to say more when I have some more time.
