Five Years

Five years ago this week we bought our blue bus, as it's kind of lovingly called.  The van has taken us to a lot of places:  Chicago several times, Indianapolis a few times, Cincinnati once, Sandusky, OH I think once or twice, and I can't forgot our trip to Virginia last year that also included Washington, D.C. and the coast in Maryland.

Last week I was talking to my sister-in-law and we were discussing our vans.  The mileage was one topic.  I was happy to announce we only had 30,000 miles (maybe that's a little pathetic but we'll be driving it forever) and Sonia said they had 50,000 in 3 years.  Well I was wrong about the number.  We haven't even hit 30,000 yet!  The odometer says 29,921.

There are days when I would love to trade in the van for something smaller (and a little less mom-ish) but then I remember how awful it would be for the kids to actually have to sit next to each other, possibly touching.  I will try to be happy with the blue bus for a few more years.  At least until one or two of the kids are out of the house.  Then I'm buying myself a nice little, fast car.
