I got nothing….or do I?

My car sits dead in the parking lot next to the therapy center in the next town over.  My son and I walked 5 blocks in the rain, then caught our first UBER ride to get home.  I have no car, no money,  and no family to help.  I’m sitting here on my bed bawling and bewildered.

It doesn’t matter if I ask the question every morning or not – I live in my own personal Groundhog Day Hell –

Today the car – What tomorrow?

I don’t have anyone else to drive us around or run errands.  I can’t fix the car.


Universe – you just keep gut punching me.


And then I put on my snow pants – I think better when I’m wearing my snow pants.  I don’t know why.

Then I remembered I have roadside towing on my car insurance policy.  Then my friend reminded me of the autoshop they use – good people who work with folks.  So the car is en route to the shop.  Family messaged with how they can help – so I have transportation should I need it – And it’s managed.


…but golly I’m getting tired of managing things.
