Jess, did we figure out who we were missing? Elvis and his Mom Maggie are coming, yes?
The transmission went in my Explorer. I don't know if I'm going to make it. I looked into renting an SUV, but I just don't think I'm going to be able to swing it, between getting mine fixed, Ashton's 16th birthday coming up, and then Christmas. Between my parents being sick this year, and every other overwhelming thing, I *really* wanted/needed to get away, even if only for a few days.
I really want to throw myself on the ground and kick, scream and cry.
I'm still coming. I just meant that I was holding out hope that Dawn could make it, though it does kinda sound like I was talking about myself. I'm very good at miscommunication.I'm so sorry to hear this Dawn. I hate it when luck is rotten. I too feel the budget squeeze of Christmas fast approaching. I'll still hold out a little hope that there might be a way though.
