I had thought I might be able to do a "Thankful for..." post each day this month, but things just got complicated right away in November, and I let half a month go by without doing that. But last Wednesday my car wouldn't start, and I've been without my trusty steed for a week. When I thought about it though, there were still some thankfuls in the whole thing:
Unfortunately, my car got sick. Thankfully, it was right in my driveway, not out on the highway. Unfortunately, I had to have the car ambulance take it away on a stretcher. Thankfully, I had an emergency roadside assistance plan, so the tow was free (though I wondered if my driveway would be considered roadside (thankfully, it was)). Unfortunately, it needed a bunch of repairs caused by a tensioner failure which would cost mega bucks. Thankfully, they took some of the labor charges off since they had to do some recall work which would involve some of the same labor as the repairs. Unfortunately, it would take a few days to get to the repairs. Thankfully, I have a wonderful grown son who saw to it that I got around to do my errands.
Unfortunately, I can't think of anything really that is terribly unfortunate (or is that fortunately?)...thankfully, my thankfullys far outweigh my unfortunatelys.
