I'm in a black mood. Not only do I have to battle dementors all weekend, I have to battle inconsiderate people too.
We left for church today, battled the icy, rainy roads only to pull into the church parking lot and be told that church was canceled. This happens each and every time. We are lucky if we are only walking out the door when we get a phone call. Seriously, there are people who come to late each and every Sunday, without fail.
I direct the music in church and we are always there early. ALWAYS. Why can't someone call us earlier? The late comers should be notified last. Plus, it only makes sense to leave a little earlier if weather conditions are bad. Though today, we left at about our usual time. I just wish people were more thoughtful.
Then, coming home, Ken decided that he would take some "main roads so that we didn't have to cut through the subdivision next to the chapel." Well...turns out his "main roads" were all the roads that took us south to the highway...he didn't just go around the subdivision. The trip was longer and more dangerous.
AND THEN, we skidded past our house/driveway...down the street. I said we'd get stuck if Ken went into the cul de sac...and we did. So, he backed up and around and I told the kids to start praying. Slowly, we made our way back to our house. Luckily, not skidding into any parked cars on the street.
I sure hope I get a bunch of extra blessings for that trip. I certainly need them.
