Still no word from Hartford. I am taking the "no news os good news" stance because I suspect that if they dismiss you they shoot out an email on the spot. I figure I was written off by Yale in the first round since I found out in early February!
In the mean time I am all worked up into a frightened lathering mess about driving Sylvia since what is wrong with her now is a ball bearing issue and I recall how frightened Josh's bus driver was when the same issue happened to their school bus and he lost control and rolled to the side of the road. I can't go on the highway with Sylvia anymore, and really I'm trying to only use her when I shuffle bear bait to and from the fields because I don't want to let her into Matt's car too much. (hard to clean fabric seats)
I'm not emotionally prepared to buy a new vehicle and I am having such problems making a decision. I feel like between bear bait and the kids it's stupid to go luxury, but I am also so damned tired of driving a rickety old filthy truck. I was so hoping Sylvia would just outlast bear bait. Every time she hops up onto the seat she leaves a smattering of gray dirt and black hair. Ick. Also, all the windows are coated on the inside with dog drool and even if I clean the windows it will only last until the next time she hops in. Also, I am still occasionally hauling around 4-5 kids so that third row sure comes in handy and if I weren't hauling kids I wouldn't even worry about that third row. Such a dilemma!
