Our budget took a blow this weekend…we had to purchase new tires for my car. When we arrived home from our Ruttgers retreat my back left tire was completely flat. Upon examination we couldn’t find any obtrusive items that caused it to lose air, but did notice that the tread on a lot of it was almost smooth. Josh promptly took the car to Sam’s Club (where he waited two hours walking every isle with Shane, bought one pack of gum, and then tried to pay with a credit card they don’t take, had to open a Sam’s card and finally got to come home) to have 4 new tires installed. Despite the hefty bill, the car sure does drive a lot smoother!
