This is one of the few times you will ever see or hear me actually saying something nice about the van. Because, really...it gets 13 miles a gallon. And drives like a school bus.
Except for times like these when I absolutely have to have it to move something. This orange couch? 9 ft. long. (If it hadn't fit in the van I was tempted to saw it in half.) The upholsterers charge $100 to pick it up and take it to the shop...I'm thinking that's a little much. I have this van. I have Firstborn. I could take the seats out, hoist the sofa up in there, drive carefully, and buy him lunch. So I did!
