I would rather adjust my life to your absence than adjust my boundaries to accommodate your disrespect.
Older car's computer played April Fool's Day joke
I have an older car that we keep around, as a spare car & to haul things in the large rear part.
Well, I needed to run a quick errand, not too far away and chose to take it. Bad idea on April Fool's Day.
On the way back home from where I needed to go and about 2 miles from the house, sitting at a red light, I realized I was hungry, thirsty, needed to pee and that my cell phone needed to be charged. Of course that it when I also noticed the check engine light come on.
Wait. What? I just had it into the repair shop recently to do some major work!!! Really car? At least the same repair shop was about 1/2 mile from that light. The shop looked at it and apparently the car's computer had a glitch. They were able to test the engine component and then reset the computer. Took less than 15 minutes.
At least it ended well. Got back home ok without breaking down. No light again. This car has broken down over the years, at the most inopportune times, with kids in tow, much further from home. I'm going through some other stresses today and I did not need this tacked onto my day.

Thoughts and prayers please - not for me
Yesterday there was an accident involving a few of my DD teammates at college. It was an atv rollover. The one girl that had a head injury now has no brain function and is on a ventilator. She was just a freshman. She got to play in a game last week. Her family lives a few states away and they have made it to her bedside.
Please send your thoughts and prayers out to this family, her teammates and coaching staff at college, the new friends she made at college this past month, as well as everyone else who's life she touched. Grief counselors have been brought into the college earlier today. Many of the students and teammates are far from home.
