Have been out of town

I just wanted to let you know that I have been out of town most of this past week. I actually had dermatology appointment for Thursday but…………. it did not go as planned, typical of my life. Nothing goes as planned. I had determined I would not make plans to avoid having plans not turn out. But given the situation, and knowing that I would have to make planned Dr. appointments. I had to throw the not make plans idea out with the trash. I will not go into details but, my appt was set for early Thursday morning. I did make room reservations to stay overnight on Wed. Given the situation with the not normal frigid temperatures I did not want to be driving pre-dawn with the temperatures hitting the 20- below 0 mark. Well of course when I left to drive the few miles to the appointment, wouldn’t you know my car would not start. Not unusual given the circumstances, many people discovered that their generally dependable vehicles would not start. So I called the Dr and told them I would be late, I did not know how late, but would call them when I got my car started. It would not start at all on Thursday. I had no option but to stay at the hotel another day. $$$$ the piddly amount of benefits I get for disability is a little over $700 p/mo I pretty much have my financial situation set in stone, I have no extra money for hotels and such extravagant luxuries. Two nights in a hotel simply is not affordable on disability. Finally about noon today a couple fellows helped jump start my battery. I made it back home but in part the reason my car would not start was because one of the battery terminals was cracked at an angle completely through it. It would not tighten. I did not notice until I got home this afternoon. I had noticed it would become loose and I would just twist it a little with my hand and it would make contact enough to start. So this evening I replaced the battery terminal, more unexpected $$$$. But I am alive. I do exist.
