We're back from town. What a day! But thankfully the only thing wrong with the car was the battery. Yay! And since we went to Les Schwab I was able to put it on our account for now until things are a bit brighter as far as those things go. I said a prayer of thanks as soon as they said it was just the battery.
Now to enjoy the Christmas season and then I can worry about finding a solution to the next problem on the list. :D
