It's Wednesday during a week that is moving ever so slllllooooowwwwllly. Why? Because it's the week leading up to vacation. And all said, things were going along smoothly until last night. I went to pull out of the parking lot after work last night and the road felt really rough. They just repaved our parking lot here (and they didn't do a beautiful job, so it is rough in general), but this was rougher than usual. Then the light bulb came on...FLAT TIRE. Bummer. My back driver's side tire was flat. Flat-flat. Thank heavens for Randi's husband Wade who saw the problem and stopped to help me. Good thing too, because though I know theoretically how to change a tire, I've never actually done it. And I don't know if Frank ever has either.
So, off came the tire on the back of my Jeep and off came the flat. He had that puppy changed in like 10 mintues. I was ever so thankful.
Truth be told, the tires are getting pretty thin anyway. We had planned on replacing them after vacation, in August or September. But it looks like that timeline got moved up to BEFORE vacation. :(
The tire shop couldn't get us in until 9:30a this morning, so Frank, the wonderful husband he is, took the car and I took his to get to work. I still haven't heard from him which is making me a little nervous, but I know he was going to go on a bike ride rather than sit and wait at the tire shop. And since he's called himself out of work for the morning, I sure he took advantage and enjoyed a long bike ride. I just hope in the end the tires go on and balance fine and we only pay out what we've estimated it will be, and nothing more. Things like this stress me out. We're prepared for them, but when it comes to parting with the money....that feeling I do not like.
On a side note...back to weight watchers. Had my first weigh-in last night. Down -4.4 lbs. Yay me.
