Two Words: Car. Trouble.

Despite our best efforts to plan for every possible situation, things just don't always go as planned. Late last week, the power steering on our beloved Ollie gave out [completely, horrifyingly, just OUT]. Sydney was driving to the airport to head home for a wedding when suddenly her attempts at steering no longer made any difference in which direction the car went.

A long story short, we rented a car for the weekend (which has since turned into the weekend plus the majority of this week) while the car is in Winfield, KS getting fixed. You know how those things go--what starts as one thing needing to be fixed [power steering, we are talking to you] suddenly turns into new tire tracks and "knuckles around your bearings" [anyone?] and a whole slew of other car jargon we don't exactly understand.

You're likely wondering what Kelcey is doing while the car is out of commission. The shortest answer is being a trooper. We don't want to get too far away from the city where the car dealership is, which is making it hard for Kelcey to progress along her route. The compromise? She runs 30 miles around our current city (Wichita) and has agreed to apply the miles to her route once the car is done.

We hope to have the car back tomorrow and then continue on to Oklahoma where Kelcey will pick up her route again. From Oklahoma we go to New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and finally, California!

We are so excited to get our sweet Ollie back because our car magnets have arrived and we can't wait to start using them!
