"Welcome to Lent,"

she said, with a wry smile.

I awoke with a monster headache (thank you, Lord, for ibuprofen) ...

The girls' new MP3 player, for which they dutifully saved and saved, has died (thank you, Lord, for reminding us that we live with such luxury) ...

Our car may be dying. It's under the intensive care of its physician right now (thank you, Lord, for 15 years and 220,000 miles with that beloved car) ...

Lent.
Is.
Here.

You don't by chance have a Honda Odyssey, do you?

No, I don't have one. But in the past two days I've been informed by three friends with failing cars. You're the fourth. They all have Odysseys with failing transmissions, so I thought I'd ask. :)

Have a great weekend, Karen!

No, not a Honda. It's a Pontiac Grand Am, and it turns out it still has some life in it! A relatively minor repair, which is a huge relief, given that our mechanic initially said, "It could be just a hose, or it could be the whole engine ...." :-)

Glad to hear that the car is not terminally ill - sorry about the MP3 player. :-(

Wishing you a peaceful lent...
