The year Princess Diana and Prince Charles announced their separation, the Queen of England in her annual speech called the year "annus horribilis (lat). Well today was horrendus die.
I got up early to prepare for a meeting for 10. Left home at 8:30 a.m. picked up some documents. As I was headed there - my car starting making a noise and I immediately lamented not making that service appointment. I continued to drive - hoping to get to the office and it begin to emit an odor. I thought yeah, you push the envelope too much it may be too late for the service. I called my Mom to be on standby because I thought I may have to pull on the side of the road. She suggested I return home and switch cars. I turned around and as I am driving the systems begin to shut off. The radio and a/c. The gas/heating indicator, it beginning to lose power. Finally the engine shut off and I coast to my wall and tried to get off the road. Once she shuts down the steering wheel lost power. But I managed to get home. But I'm parked on the side of the road badly.
It's 9:30 a.m. I switch cars and rush to the meeting. I called my estranged BFF to look at it. I went to deliver a package and the recipient is not there. I have to come back tomorrow. I want to go home early, but I have to get some work out because I have deadlines. BFF says he go the car up and running but the a/c is not working - he's still looking for a part. It's too hot to be driving without a/c/ The sun is out in full force here. It feels like summer. It's good - so it can dry out my car and it's bad because my car brokedown and the a/c is not working..
When I left home I packed a light lunch because I wanted some cool (temp) to have. So I had cottage cheese and fruit cocktail. Because of the situation with my car - for dinner I want a cheese burger and fries. This is tough - I want to console myself. I want a new car - I want to have Friday off.
