at least we made it to cleveland before car trouble hit! alarming noises were identified by muffler men as a wheel baring problem. which is frustrating and unsurprising because i’ve dealt with this on other wheels twice already this year. unfortunately, that shop was closed. and so were most of the others we passed or called. it was almost looking like we’d be waiting here til monday.
THANKFULLY, a mechanic shop that originally turned us down for lack of time, took pity on us and we may get this repair taken care of in time to make it back to Lansing for the homecoming show tomorrow.
as far as my rxn: i did an excellent job using dbt distress tolerance skills to stay calm through the moderately stressful search for service and despite disappoint, we have to bail on a show in columbus tonight :/ i’m resigned to the cost [$240]. we’d been breaking even til now but w/e RADICAL ACCEPTANCE Y’ALL.
