I'm Back!

Sorry I didn't check in last night, but it's been a hectic couple of days. Dh and I headed for WI early yesterday and things seemed to be going well, when, just outside of Rockford IL, with only a couple hours left to go, the truck broke down! We were driving in two vehicles, bringing my Mom's car back to WI, and had thought that if anything should happen, it would be to the car, but nope, the water pump on the truck died (or something). It's a good thing we were in two vehicles, though, because after dh limped the truck to a parking lot, we left it there, came back here bought a pump and this morning headed back to Rockford, where dh, after much cursing and ranting and everything that could go wrong, going wrong, fixed the truck. We got back here about 3:30.

Nothing like a day spent sitting around in a car in a parking lot, listening to your dh fume over everything, while you think of all the things you had planned on doing that day! But it couldn't be helped, and I'm glad he was able to eventually fix it.

As for the trip, it went well. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but it was nice to see my Mom and sister and it happened that my brother came for a visit on Wednesday, so it was very nice to see him, too, if only for a day.

I guess that's all the news regarding my trip. Bear with me for few days, though, if I don't catch up in here right away. I've got mail, and email and laundry and I don't know what other stuff to catch up on, too. I should be myself by Monday, LOL!

Thanks, Electricbug for keeping an eye on the place. It is much appreciated!
