It is so frustrating when you have plans all lined up and something happens to put a snafu into them. Today, that snafu would be that my vehicle decided to act up while en route to a mammo appointment.
"Seriously? NOW?!" But, I kept driving a bit, got a little (okay, more than a little) scared and so I called them. Fortunately, she rescheduled me for a later time and I can use son's car. Yay!
It has been pouring rain for days and so I am hoping the dampness is just affecting it and will not be some big expensive deal. I also felt some kind of knock under my foot or in front underneath ...a couple of times. No rocks and smooth road. None of us are mechanically inclined.
So, after several phone calls ...at least I am getting mammo tonight, and can use son's car tomorrow and can keep my plans.
Update: I LOVE my son's car! First of all ...it's BLUE! Need-I-say-more? And ...it's sporty and I love sitting low and love how it felt so private because door comes up pretty high. I kind of felt like I was in a cockpit. Handles beautifully. Did I tell you it is BLUE? ;)
Thank you son. :)
So ...I went back home and let it idle awhile. The mechanic said dampness could do it or it could be other things.
I really wanted to go to Costco after.
Must not have been meant to be today.
It will just feel good to get these tests out of the way. I sometimes put this stuff off forever and so I just wanted to keep up my momentum with tackling appointments.
And next week I have a physical with the new internist. I am planning on writing a post about it and already have the title.
I'm calling it "Phyiscal Exam By Candlelight", and I will explain when I write it. :)
