Poor VW!!!

Glen's volkswagen bus is currently inoperative. And will be for several weeks. He has the engine out and taken apart. He ordered a new head and some other stuff but it won't arrive for 7-10 business days. Soooo...we are down to one car, which is a challenge on school days. I usually leave at 7 a.m., drop Sean at daycare 7:25, and then arrive at work at 7:40, right as the first bell rings. Glen puts Maggie on the bus at 7:07 a.m., then leaves for school, arriving around 7:40 as well. Somehow, we are going to have to leave together after Maggie is on the school bus, drop Sean off at daycare and make it to Xavier by 7:40 for the next 2 weeks or so. Maybe Glen can drop me at Xavier first, then drop Sean off, and arrive at school a little late (8:00). He doesn't have a homeroom or 1st hour so noone would miss him, unless they are looking for him to sub. He can probably get out of that while the bus is inoperable though. Glen will take his bike with him and do a combination of riding and hopping the public bus to get home, since I leave work around 12:30pm and come home early to get Maggie from Kindergarten. Taking the bus home from Xavier takes over an hour with all the waiting and transfers. Bleh.

Yuck! I know how you feel! We have been down to one car all year and I am the one that suffers on that one! Then, our only car...the van...well, the transmission needs to be replaced! So, we are down to no cars, but had to get a rental for Brandon's work! I wish I lived somewhere we didn't need cars! Really, I do. I hope you guys get your other car up and running soon. Can you pick him up from school? Well, he'll get good exercise!
