Well, last week held adventure for us, as our van battery died. Twice. I won't bore you with the saga that ensued on Thursday. Let's just say my morning didn't go as planned. After being assured that our battery and alternator were fine (by "the professionals"), it died again on Saturday morning. That resulted in 48+ hours in the shop (since 24 of those hours fell over a Sunday) and more altered plans. In case you ever wondered, this is why people with four-door sedans upgrade their vehicles when they have more than one or two kids.
