Stranded

It is amazing how stranded you can feel when you don't have a car. I don't have anywhere to be, but it is hard knowing you can't leave. My van died on me on Friday night. It was running and it just stopped and would not start again. Saturday I had it towed to the dealership. Andy talked to them on Monday and it needs a new fuel pump - which they don't have. They had to order the part from Dallas. It should be arriving today. They might be able to get it fixed before closing time. I sure hope so, and I know my dad hopes so. Otherwise, he gets to drive me and my 2 girls to Houston in his truck. We were going to leave on Sunday, but now we will be leaving on Wednesday - van or no van. Kayla is way too excited about going to see her cousins for us to actually cancel the trip. To be honest, I am looking forward to the trip too. I don't get to go back there very often. I guess I better start packing!

Sorry to hear about the van but glad they know what the problem is .... and you weren't stranded on the road when it died.

It is very hard to know you can't go anywhere, even if there is no where to go. :-)

I know you all will have a wonderful time in Houston.

oh, that stinks. Hopefully all will be fixed soon and you can hit the road!

We are all very excited too. I hope you'll be able to take the van but we don't care what car you take as long as you get here safe and sound! :)

See you tomorrow!

The van is ready! Turns out it was not the fuel pump, but a wiring problem. I am just glad to get it back (it does not hurt that is was covered by warranty).
