to throw in the dirt.
We commenced down the road happily. The kids teased me about saying a bad word and we were having a good time when the truck started bouncing all over the interstate. We were doing 70 and I looked in the rear view mirror to see the trailer fishtailing all over the road. I didn't know what happened. My first thought was someone hit us, then I thought the trailer came unhooked and the chains were pulling it, then I thought "Please let me get this off the road without wrecking". I got off the road, got out of the truck and the left rear tire had blown. My heart was pounding so loud I think the truckers at the dump heard it. I called my sweet husband and told him "I Quit" and I was going to some beach. He was on his way to help me and I got out of the truck again to evaluate the damage. When I did it started thundering and raining. Yep....that's how my day was going. I stood beside the road, looked at the sky and said "BRING IT ON!!!". It was my Forrest Gump moment.
My knight in shining armor arrived, changed the tire and I gave him the keys to the truck and got into his car. We went home, sat on the back porch while the sun came out and birds sang. I thought all was right in the world again....until supper. I had the oven going, two burners on the stove in the full swing of cooking as I had taken all my aggression out on chopping onions and celery and life was good until the power went out. Yep...the power went out. Jason hooked up the camp stove so I could finish supper then I shortly went to bed. The power came back about 5 hours later.
