Fall is just around the corner! Can you believe how fast this summer has gone by?
We have been one car short all summer due to my oldest son needing to drive to work about 20 minutes away and my husband needing to drive about 45+ minutes away. We've been working on it, but this summer, my youngest and I have not really done much because of lack of transportation.
Over the past month or so, we have had a car on Fridays because my husband has been able to telecommute one day per week. It's not much, but it's something.
When school gets back in session in a few weeks, my youngest will be travelling to UVU every day by train, and my oldest will be living in the dorms at BYU. That will be helpful in the transportation department.
We've been working on getting another vehicle for some time now. As I have stated before, we drive our vehicles until they cannot go any more. That's really the case with the ones we have now and one of the reasons we have not gone on any vacations this summer, and are not attending a reunion this weekend.
Waiting on a vehicle that my husband's brother is receiving so that we can purchase his vehicle is a practice in patience. Ford has been late with all of their manufacturing due to factors like a fire in one of their plants. So, since that is what we are waiting on, patience is all you can control.
So, when we get the vehicle, my youngest and I will be taking quite a few hikes and doing some things to make up for lost time...and before the weather starts to turn, which can happen quite abruptly.
Due to so many medical bills, poor construction practices on our home, and vehicle issues, we are ready for at least one of those things to clear up a bit. Step by step. Bit by bit. We have years of trials that we are trying now to climb out of.
We are blessed. Life is good.
