"On the road again ..."

And so, another count-down begins.  T minus 3 days.  And then we will board the train on Friday headed for New Orleans, then Chicago, and then on to Whitefish. 

Once again, the things I wanted to do are being stomped on.  Glacier has been on my bucket list for years.  How long there???  One day. 

And in reality, that may be fine.  I know that they are closing the park, and I think there has already been snowfall (not sure there).  But durn, that was why I wanted to take this trip to begin with.

Then I had suggested driving home.  When we went to Seattle last, our train trip home was done away with because of flooding in the north, and the passenger train we would have taken other than that had an 18 wheeler smash into it in Arizona (???) which caught fire, killed the driver and several on the train were seriously hurt, wrecked several rail cars, and damaged the track.  So we rented a car and drove back so fast!!

I thought at the time there were several places I would have liked to have stopped had we had time to explore.  Are we taking that route?  You know the answer to that.  NO!  We are going the way HE wants to see things. 

So am I happy about this trip.  In a simple, single word NO.  But I am not going to argue.  I am sick of arguing.  Every time I don't agree these days, I just shut up.  Makes like a little more pleasant.

Let me apologize here.  I have been in such a foul mood lately.  This is where I can vent.  I really am sorry about being such a downer.

And before I forget. Our Pastor didn't meet with G.  The little chicken had the Vice-president of the "Council of Elders" do that.  She gave G a copy of the constitution.  I am pretty sure that the congregation has not seen this whole thing.  It is like 12 pages long, and is full of double speak.  Once again with the "smoke and mirrors" that seem to be the way the church works. 

G has been reading it and making notes in the margins.  What it says and the way we are working in reality are not the same.  Looks like we will be going back to the old church.  I hate to leave the many, many friends I have at this present one.  It's like the old church used to be before it got so big.  There is only one family here that I really cannot stand (here I go again being negative).  But I will take up the remaining old friendships at the old church, get really involved and make new ones.

Have a great one - and don't let me drag you down with my negativity. Hopefully that will go away soon.

So do I! Sometimes, I've found, the things I dreaded most turn out to be the best.

Take care.
