Unexpected Happenings At The Beach

Isn't it funny that when you least expect something to go wrong it inevitably does.

Take yesterday for example.  My husband and I decided to take a weekend trip to the coast for some much needed rest and relaxation.  The weather was great, the hotel was nice, I found some lovely little things to bring home plus we tried a new restaurant and it was wonderful, too.  Everything was going smoothly.

Wake up this morning and get into the car to go to go !  The car was dead.  Absolutely no sign of life in the engine.  Now, of course, it is Sunday and we're two hours away from home.....great !  Now what?! 

So we proceed to get a local car repair guy out to the hotel parking lot to look at the car and see if he could fix it.  NO.  So now we're calling our youngest son to leave his job and come and get us.  Now, remember, we're two hours away.   He finally gets to us and we start to drive back and about 1/2 hour into the return trip my husband discovers he has left his cellphone in the other car.  CRAP!  Now, we have to add another hour (going both ways) to an already long enough return trip.  Not to mention make plans to return Monday to take the car to a local repair shop to see if they fix it.  So back we will go to the beach one more time.

So much for that much needed rest and relaxation.
