Sometimes, even though we think we're the ones in control - we realize we're not.
For example today's forecast for "RAINFALL WARNING - AT TIMES HEAVY" meant that I could no longer delay the cleaning of the gutters - so that's what I did before work today.
Yup. I did. I wasn't up to me.
Cars are the same way - they are more in control of us than we like to think. Just ask a driver who has one that likes to breakdown! But I'm not saying anything, don't want to jinx anything, my little Heidi* has been good to me.
*Do you have a name for your car, or am I just weird?
