If it's not one thing, it's another.

This van is a comedy of errors (if you can call something a comedy that makes you CRY). After fixing all the oil leaks in the engine last year, the engine went out. Then, after putting a new engine in it, the transmission went out a few weeks ago. We got it out of the shop yesterday, after putting a new transmission in it. And today, the speedometer is out. The speedometer, people, gone.

Screw it, who needs a speedometer, anyway? NOT ME.

You should talk to Jennie about the horrors of vans. Mine worked well for me while I had it, but I had to trade it in for my red beast aka. red camaro. What is it about finding that perfect car that lasts forever, then you buy the new one you think will work better, but only ends up letting you down? So far my durango has been good to me. But I haven't paid it off just yet. We'll see what happens then.

Don't even get me started on the van. We have just had it two months and have spent around $700 (that was our part above and beyond the warranty) Stupid
stupid cars.

Hey Robyn,
I found your site. I love all 400+ pictures you have. You are such a proud mom. Your kids are adorable.
If you didn't have any kids you could be like me and buy a motor scooter. I get 70 miles per gallon and there isn't too much to repair on a scooter.
