Things are not looking good in the vehicle department for this bunch right here! Tomorrow will mark a month since our first hotel stay and in this month we have been in three different motels due to the van needing to be fixed. The fuel line keeps busting and it seems that it all stems from someone along the way forgetting to put a nut or something on the rod. Nice, right? I know that people make mistakes but this van has been looked at by multiple mechanics and we won’t even get into the last mechanic that looked at the van before this Ford dealership and sending the van without being able to start or have power. Not too impressed with them!
So, a motel has been our home for awhile and Duncan has been enjoying it. Kids see it as being an adventure and not to mention that he has been able to “plank” between the beds and between the bed and the mini fridge. I still have to get some pictures of it because it is hilarious.
We did get to webcam with my family yesterday which Duncan proceeded to show them all his cars and toys. Hey, when you are so far away and only “see” everyone once a month you take what you can get, right?
We might be out of the motel today or we might be staying here another night. I hope we are out on the road by tonight though. Figuring out meals to cook in the microwave is starting to get harder even though we’ve been doing really well to keep our grocery bill down here.
Duncan had noodles (Ramen type) last night for dinner because he didn’t like his meat pie. I didn’t blame him because microwaving them are not good at all. It seemed quite rubbery and I don’t care for them anyway. So, noodles for dinner and then he requested them for breakfast as well. I obliged. Breakfast of champions!
