Vacation Day - 14

Friday, August 15, 2014

The official last day of vacation. Friday.. Back to work on Monday.. Boo hoo! LOL
But thankful for my job, so not really complaining...

Yesterday had an appointment with my naturalpath up north, about 50 miles away (cutting-edge, specialized), and my friend went with me instead of my hubby that usually goes since having two people in the car allows us to use the carpool lane! Otherwise, it takes forever to get there and back.

ANYWAY - we get off the freeway, and only about 5-10 min from the ND office, and guess what happened!! FLAT TIRE!

So, pulled it off to a parking lot. Debated on what to do, called my husband. We got the tire out, etc... but she was trying to remember the steps on how to change the tire. I can't lift or do any of it, since my leg injury. But a guy came out of the restaurant and we asked for his help. It took a bit, and with some help from my hubby over the phone on why the lug nuts weren't coming off, etc... BUT finally got the tire off, the spare (the donut spare) on.... And still got to the appointment on time.

Now, that was a little too adventurous, but ever so thankful it didn't blow on the freeway going 60 miles an hour. We were barely doing 20mph on the road we were on when it happened.

The guy that helped us would not take money from me for helping, no matter how I pressed it. He and his girlfriend or wife said, it had just happened to them a week ago and someone else helped them out... so were thankful to help us out in our time of need. What lovely people!

So, had the appointment, then got a quick bite to eat for lunch at a whole foods market. Then we had to take the back roads home instead of the freeway since we were on a donut spare. But, it was actually kind of relaxing since we were in no hurry and not much traffic at the time we had to travel back home.

Chilled out at home at the end of the day!!

Okay.... I am off to get my Iced Chai Green Tea.... it's calling me!

    I find God tends to put the right people in our lives at the right time - like folks who experienced a flat tire themselves just the week before, allowing you to be on time for your appointment! Enjoy this weekend before returning to work, and give yourself a little time to get back in the swing of things.
