Almost 2 months later, we finally donated Vladimir to the National Kidney Foundation. We tried to do it through the Utah website, but since it's a Wisconsin car we would have had to transfer the title and do a bunch of other stuff that we really didn't have time or patience for, so Vladimir's just been sitting at J & M's for the last several weeks. Daniel's aunt suggested going through the Wisconsin website instead (duh, why didn't we think of that?!) and tonight we did it all online. So now it's the NKF's problem and we can move on to other car problems, like our lack of decent gas mileage in our current car. My mom just had the oil changed in her car and the guy put in some additive stuff and now she's getting 27 miles/gallon on the highway and almost that many miles in the city. I may have to do some detective work and find out how we can make that happen in our car.

Also, in case you're following our car adventures, our "new" car is a 2002 Land Rover Freelander. We found it on KSL and the guy was selling it for his friend so we got a sweet deal. We did have to buy new tires and there's only one key, but it's got some awesome features, like heated seats and air conditioning that works! We named him Grover and he's a beast, which I appreciate in the cold weather. Daniel always lets me drive, which I appreciate because I love to!



  1. I'm jealous of your heated seats!

  2. Hey love the new ride! Im glad that the skunk is gone.
