Lucky for us, we made the rest of the trip in peace, I was able to use the AC for the majority of the drive to Casper, and nothing broke down. I did find out that to fix the drain pipe at our home in Rexburg would be VERY expensive. VERY. Time has passed. I recovered from that shock. Now I'm in Casper, WY, preparing to move into another home in just 11 days.
There will be plenty of good things to come! Besides, seeing my 8-yr-old back to his cowboy roots makes every minute worth it.
