March 31, 2017 - Our Van Died...for good I think


Today our 1999 Ford Windstar keeled over and died.  I think it's the end for the old beast.  We got it right before having our second child back in 2012 from a friend of mine's employer...a daycare.  We bought it for $1,000 and it has made it through some extremely crazy circumstances.  We weren't even sure it was going to last us 1 or 2 years, but it lasted 5.  It stopped running at some interesting times...2 weeks before our 3rd child's due date for example.  But it always died at home, and we were always able to get it back up and running.

Someone's Still Happy Though
This time, it just felt different.  I went to start it to go to the store and it started turning over and something snapped or exploded or something.  After that, it wouldn't even try to turn over.  Not sure we even care to try to fix it anyway.  It seems like an expensive problem and it's now too small for our huge family.  We always said we thought it would die right before we got a new one.  Thing is we have no money for a new vehicle.  God's gotta take care of this one.
