Maui News: You know, the transmission in my van went out about a month ago. It took 26 days to have it repaired. I had to wait for the mechanic to go on and return from vacation, wait for shipping on the parts, etc. Things are not so instantaneous living here, which can be a blessing or a curse. In this case, I'll chalk it up to a blessing. My DH and I decided to save money and not rent a car during this 26 day period. Thankfully, I live within walking distance to my post office, bank, and grocery store, though it is a 40 minute round trip walk. There is also a county bus system that can take you from the grocery store to other parts of the island. After about two weeks chained to the house and neighborhood, my children and I went on an adventure and learned to ride the bus! I don't know why I waited so long?! When I got my van back, which I am tremendously thankful for, I filled it up, and do you know the price of regular gas is now $4.69/gallon? Yikes! I am so glad I now know how to navigate the bus system. It only costs a dollar for a one-way trip, and I think I will be voluntarily using it whenever I can! Have a sunny day everyone!
