Waiting.....Waiting.....and More Waiting

Guess what?  Things could have been a whole lot worse.  I'm waiting in the Crater Lake Ford service center for word on the Explorer diagnosis and Bruce has walked a block down the street to see about the MH.  While I am sitting here I started making my list of the good things about yesterday:

1)  nobody got injured or killed on Interstate 5 while the MH was being made ready to tow
2)  we had a cell phone for emergency calling
3)  the tow driver knew his business
4)  we have roadside assistance coverage plus AAA for the car emergency
5)  we have extended warranty policy so (hopefully) repairs to MH will be covered by that
6)  we were only a couple of miles out of Medford when the breakdown happened
7)  we stayed at a very nice Quality Inn last night and Annie came too

Being a person of spiritual faith, I have to say Praise the Lord for my list of 7 things.  Yes, we have a problem with both MH and car, and it might be serious, but just look at the list of those 7 things.  Wow, those are the good things in this whole mess....or the blessings, if you will.

I'll post again, when possible, and let you know what is going on.  I know for sure we are going to miss our appointment this morning in Woodland, WA getting those new blinds installed in the MH.  I'm sure they'll hold them for us and we'll get that job done eventually.  We're just hoping we can get back up to Tumwater before Tuesday when we have the first of our round of doctor appointments.  Time will tell.

Until next long for now!

Way to stay positive! As we continue the process of transforming our lives, looking for the positives instead of getting bogged down by the negatives is something I'm working hard on. These kind of days will happen to all of us at some point. The important thing is that you are both ok. Plans can be altered and appointments rescheduled. Take your time and be safe!

What a bummer, but thank goodness you are safe.

Thank you, Margie, for posting your blessings. We can all learn from your positive attitude. And it's okay to post the negatives, too, because we all have to endure them too. We RVers know that it's not fun all the time. It's good to see the realistic side also. Praise God for protecting you during this stressful time!
