Thankful Thursday ~ Timing

My car Feb. 2013

Car problems, again?

A little over 2 months ago I was heading to one of the kid's houses when my check engine light came on.  Hubby said to  go to the Auto parts store and let them run a test on it and it said that I needed a cam sensor. I wasn't allowed to drive for a week, while I waited for my son to fix it. Two months later I pulled out of the parking lot at work to hear a loud pop and found myself looking at a very flat tire. Hubby said get it changed but the repairman said changing it would not fix the issue.  My son replaced the struts on the right side and placed my donut on the right front. The struts had caused the flat. Hubby and I had a few conversations about my driving on the donut for over two weeks. Driving on donuts make me very nervous, because if it goes flat, then what??

Back on a donut!!

Now for around one week I've been driving on a replaced tire with the donut snugly packed in the trunk, but tonight I again pulled out of the parking lot at work, heading to one of the kid's houses after working 10 1/2 hour shift and had another flat. This time it was on the left front tire. I pulled into a church parking lot on the way home and a very nice young man saw my dilemma and came out to help me change my tire.

Time evaporates!

I was rather frustrated, as Mariolina has to get her Pampered Chef order in no later than tomorrow night or wait until she hosts another party. I wanted to help her by supplying her with the order I had in my purse; one I had been promising her for about a week, but just got from my co-worker. It was/is a nice size order and will get her just the amount she needs to place her order. Pampered Chef items are awesome, expensive, but awesome! With anything I hate waiting till the last minute, because it has been my experience that when this is done, time evaporates and/or things happen!!

It gave me the chills.

I can't say to hubby, see this is why I don't like driving on a donut for long. Things happen. I get a flat and then what? I did a few weeks ago, but it started an argument, actually a chain of them. I truly don't like arguing. Most the time I will hold my piece and keep quiet, but some things worry me and it is hard for me to hold my peace, but I may as well because I am just considered to be a worry wart. My concerns are never taken serious. At least the left tire waited for the right tire to get fixed. lol It's all in the timing; God's not mine. 

Not my time, yours!

I heard a story about a woman who was in a hurry to get somewhere and was fuming because just when the light turned green, so she could finally be on her way, wouldn't you know it - the car motor died. She worked and worked to get it going and then just then right through the red light barreled a huge semi truck! Had she went, she would have certainly been creamed. She dropped her head to her steering well and whispered a prayer of thanks to God - not my time, yours!!

This post is connected to Amanda at Two Questions Thursday 

1. Are you like me, trying to juggle a dozen balls in the air all at once?

2. What projects can you delegate, or release to leave you time to cherish your others?

You know if we continue to juggle too much, He will slow us down to bring us closer to Him?? 

Thank you so much for your visit. Take care, stay healthy and God bless!

Oh my goodness Judy, you have really had some automotive headaches lately. We are lucky on this coast to have a tire company that will come out and change your tire, follow you back to the business and fix the tire for free if you bought it from them. They have rescued me many times.

I am always juggling too many things at once. All of them can wait when it comes to my family.

Oh sweetie, I wish I could help you. It would cause me worry too. It's not like you are driving on a farm road at a mere 15mph or less.

Is there a plan to fix it..them , the tires - get new ones?

1. I am a juggler and now that you just said that, I realize in my hurry to juggle, I didn't do my bible study this morning. Sigh.

2. Not much I can delegate right now.

3. We must always be closer to Him, which is good for us.

I hope your prayers will be answered soon *HUGS*

Hi Judy, you sounded like me when I was in college. Seemed that I always somehow get flat tires...
For me it was expensive and a waste of time! I am sorry you had to much problems. I am very happy with the way I deal with all my tires now. I buy them online and then go to a place that charges $15 per tire to put on, get and alignment and I pay 1/2- 1/3 less than what I used to pay! I don't know if you cared for that detail but thought I let you know so you don't have to buy tires at retail prices.
Back to the questions: 1) yes. I am a very productive person, at the expense of my health too. I push myself too hard sometimes. You can verify with Icy= smiles.
2) I try to delegate some mindless errands to SO. Something that I know I wouldn't mind if he made the decisions = LOL

I am always juggling and always behind it seems!

Judy and Amanda, these are great ideas for flat tire dilemmas. I wish compnies in our state had such an arrangement!

I am trying to figure out how to fit in sitting at the tire repair shop in my schedule. They are closed when I get in from work. I'll have to sweet talk one of my sons. :-)
