Since I decided to spend Christmas Day here in Orlando, I wanted to go to Miami today.
I had a plan.
I was excited to see my Miami family.
But first I did not sleep well last night.
Lots of odd dreams.
So my plan was delayed.
I slept in about two hours.
Last week, when my car was in for service, they told me I needed new tires.
And a brake flush.
And some other weird thing done.
But nothing was very urgent.
Instead of paying the high dealership price, I decided to go to another popular auto service place near the mall.
I called them first.
I asked if they had my tires.
For $400 cheaper.
I planned to go this morning.
Before my trip to Miami.
So after I woke up from crappy sleep, I made my way to the mall.
I walked in ready to hand over my keys for a couple of hours.
I planned on seeing a movie.
Relaxing before the four hour drive.
Then the stupid day went south.
They do not carry my tires.
They cannot order my tires.
They cannot do the weird thing I need done without buying the parts from the dealership.
And they do not think I should drive to Miami on those tires.
So I came back home.
Unpacked my car.
Unpacked my bag.
It is just not fair.
And I so do not do well when plans like this change.
So now I am alone.
Day after Christmas and I am alone.
