I was planning to start vacation at 1:30 today. You know, have the afternoon to get ready for my trip, in a leisurely organized manner. Hrumph! In actuality I ran out the door at 4:30, leaving a pile of papers and to-do's that were screaming at me as I turned my back and ran. Whatever!
Then I stopped at the garage for a quick car check up. I was ready to leave when one of the guys looked down and there it was......a nail in my tire
And of course they didn't have that tire in stock. So they put in a plug and we all said a prayer. (Confession, I was more like muttering profanities but....).
You could look on the bright side and say how lucky he saw it before I got stranded somewhere. Yeah, probably the right attitude. But I hope it was not a foreboding travel omen......(insert dramatic music here)
One more sleep and I'm on the road! Look out New England -- Here I come!
