Days 371 - 372
Silverwood Amusement park was a blast. We hit all the "extreme" rides (there's really not very many). Our bodies weren't too pleased but we're so happy we went.
Day 372, we relaxed (sort of, I did a bunch of computer work) and stayed inside all day.
The smoke is horrible.
It's even covering Montana, which we were hoping to go to. BUT... there's no point in going if we can't see anything.
So, we're kind of in a holding pattern. If the fires and smoke continue to be horrendous, looks like we will just head south. We were really looking forward to some mountain adventures before we went south. Damn it anyway.
Plus there's the issue of that mural. I hadn't heard from the manager of Rodda since Friday (today's Tuesday). I was hoping that was a good thing. I knew it wasn't though. Today I received a text saying the solvent rub really isn't working.
The clear coat is still cloudy.
Damn it anyway.
It is going to take everything in me to not have a sour attitude when I sand and repaint all the damaged sections.
I am so ready to move on. But, I can't leave it looking like that. It's beyond frustrating.
So much is clouding my vision right now. The smoke, that clear coat...I can't see beyond those physical veils.
I'm sure there's a lesson, a reason, a purpose for all of this.
So I guess I must be still and listen for that purpose. I want to move... but so much is saying wait.
At least there weren't any lines in Silverwood...
We'll be packing up and moving in a few hours so, at least there's that.
And we get access to a hot tub at our next stop. Which is great, it'll help my sore back and neck. It'll help us both to just be still.
Life will throw curveballs... you decide how you'll play those. I know I have some energy work to do so I'm enjoying these curveballs. I'll see you on the flip side.
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
