More on the neverending vacation

Good morning! Well, here we are, still in beautiful Alabama. The bad news is that we still don't have transportation home. The good news is that the car is under warranty and they are busily replacing the back end. Technically, I have no idea what that means but it sounds like a very time consuming process. I know of several women that have had the process done and it took them weeks of sitting on a doughnut to feel any better. We will just keep sending positive thoughts in the direction of Lynley's beloved suburban assault vehicle, Helga. We could get it back today or tomorrow but I am not getting my hopes up. The tough thing about all of this is that Lynley needs to be back in Fort Worth on Friday morning for a work retreat. So it looks like she will probably fly back while I wait it out with the kiddos. Eventually the car will be ready and I will make my way back home with my backup whiners, the twerps.

All in all it really is not so bad. The kids are having a wonderful time and, outside of being couped up much of the day due to the rain, aren't going too stir crazy. Today it looks like a trip to the Birmingham zoo. I will be sure to post some pictures.

Well, I had best be off. I do actually have to get some work done. I know, I know. I shouldn't be working on vacation. Just don't tell Lynley. If she found out I had been working every morning she would slap me upside the head with a thick piece of purpose.
