My husband and I even commented we couldn't have gotten a flat tire at a more perfect time.
- We had easy, quick access to friends & family who came to our rescue with a better jack, a huge umbrella, and their experience.
- It occured a day before our 3 hour trip to visit my family, so it was much better getting the flat & fixing it beforehand than it would have been on the trip.
- We could actually afford to replace the tires.
- Not to mention giving us a valuable lesson in How To Change Your Tire; now go out and buy a flashlight.
And here's that awesome synchronicity that I love:
The people we were visiting (and who I called for help) had done some television insallation that afternoon. Turns out that they had wired something wrong and unplugged the phone, so it was out for the whole afternoon. Only minutes before I called though did they realize this error, and plugged the phone back in. Voila! My phone call got through to them without a hitch.
