Thanks for all of your wonderful input! The end result is that we are going to "store" the van in our garage for our friends.
If it so happens that I have an emergency, then I should go ahead and use the van. But I shouldn't go out and just waste gas because I have a vehicle to get around in.
Any emergencies I need to invent? Just kidding, heaven knows I couldn't handle it if Carly broke her other leg (or worse).
I just got back from a day of organizing and cleaning my brother and sister-in-law's house. Todd did the design for their remodel and I have been able to help pick out a couple of colors for the interior and the end result is amazing. It wasn't photo ready tonight, but let me just tempt you to come back soon to see the amazing edifice with a before & during construction picture:
This was once the new roof was put on and the second story added! Are you enticed? My husband is brilliant!
