Just a quick note to share with you guys. As my family was driving up to Boston to meet me for EFAM I had decided that my 108K mile fab-u-lous PT Cruiser needed to be ready for the journey. I did what a good traveler does, got the oil changed and the air in the tires done etc. I ALSO (because sometimes other drivers of the car that happen to be married to me) might be stubborn.. I added my husband to my AAA policy just the day before I left for Boston.
Well, don’t you know it.. My fabulous car died… 3 hours outside of Boston. Never to travel the DC Beltway or cross the 14th St bridge again in it’s short life. — Timing Belt– transmission disaster.
I am so glad I had added my husband to this policy. It allowed my family to get the car towed and get a rental on a late Sunday afternoon. Then, to add to the fun, I became ill on Monday, while at the conference and stayed in bed at the hotel until Wednesday evening. I had to text my chapter corresponding secretary and ask her and the treasurer to finalize and send out the chapter newsletter without me.
I didn’t plan for that one.
It’s okay though. I planned for the things I could and (tried to graciously) accept the things I could not fix.
It’s all called ‘ Life’.. So my apologies that I did not blog from EFAM in Boston. But I’m sure you understand!
