Day 7 – A Bump in the Road

waterfall“Waterfall, nothing can harm me at all,
My worries seem so very small
With my waterfall.” – Jimi Hendrix, May This Be Love

Yesterday was our seventh day and we had some problems with Loretta. The steering fluid was leaking and the brakes were not responding well. After several phone calls and considering many options, we found a place to have her serviced while we would be in Evanston for Mike’s conference.

We then decided to head toward Evanston and split the seven hour drive in half. We finally got to the hotel in Tomah at about 8:45 last night. The boys were happy to watch some Cartoon Network and I was happy to have a real shower.

It wasn’t the day we had planned, but we made the best of it. Everyone managed to stay happy and it seems  the boys are learning to roll with the changes. We feel lucky that things worked out the way they did even though they didn’t go as planned. So I say, don’t sweat the small or even the medium stuff. But I don’t agree that it’s all small stuff.
