The Best Intentions

Today was going to be a good, fun, and productive day.

I was going to get up early and hit the gym.

Then I was going to head to church for breakfast and the annual Deep Clean of the building.

The International Festival is going on - I've loved it the last few years and planned to take the kids this afternoon.

There's a missions project at church this evening.

And my car is in the shop.

On my drive home from work yesterday, the low tire indicator came on.  I pulled over, visually checked my tires, and decided to continue the drive home.  Made it home safely and got out my mini compressor to check pressure and fill if needed.  Checked one tire, another, another.  All are fine.  Got to the last tire...

And the stem breaks off and the air whooshes out of the tire.

So our morning was spent putting the spare on and getting the car to the shop.  Breakfast, ran a couple of errands.  Killing time, hoping the shop will call.

And it still isn't ready.

Head home to wait.  It is a gorgeous day - unexpectedly warm and sunny.  Perfect day for fall yard work.  Great day to open windows and clean house.

I formed a plan on the drive home.  I'll start with the bathroom and hallway.  Small spaces that need a good cleaning.  Then the living room for a bigger project.  I'll get it all ready for the Christmas tree to go up next weekend.

Then I walked in the door.  And my husband laid down in our bedroom.  And the kids went out to play.  And I sat on the couch.

I had the best of intentions for this day.  I really did.

Most likely your vehicle had been watching you run yourself ragged and decided to prevent your whirlwind day and thus give you and your couch some much needed quality time together. :D
Hope the rest of your weekend goes smoothly.

You could have cleaned the kitchen or something... just sayin'.
