No, I'm not talking about the weather. We do live in the Pacific Northwest and it did rain yesterday and sprinkle today, but that's not what I'm talking about at all.

You might think that's enough to drive anyone crazy and you might be right. I can still top it though. Last Friday, Rod was in a car accident and his work van isn't drivable (okay, it goes forward, but not backward and the hitch is broken). It was a three car accident and the perpetrator fled the scene. Luckily Rod and the other driver have the same story about how the accident occurred, so our insurance will cover it under uninsured motorist. Unfortunately, we don't have the money for the co-pay with the house stuff up in the air and Owen's recent hospitalization (and the hundreds of dollars in special keto foods and supplies we've recently purchased). We also suspect that the van isn't worth what it will take to fix it. What it is worth won't be enough to pay for a new van. Rod is currently using our family van for work and Devon has the Toyota for work and school, so I don't have a vehicle. Thankfully Mom is going to let us borrow her little truck (she's bringing it up this weekend) so I will have a way to get to the grocery store when I run out of Owen's special items. Between the truck and the little car Devon and I can get all the kids somewhere if we have to.
