tired

[Epiphany 5B] joy sadhana

At like 4pm today, I realized that if I were going to help set up, I would need to leave, on my bike, right around then. I was still tired from retreat (and still experiencing delayed reaction fear from having gotten hit by a car), so I opted for the bus.

Bus is scheduled to pick up at 4:27, but I left my house at ~4:20 despite the fact that usually it picks up after 4:30.

At 4:38 a #96 went by in the other direction and I texted Julia: "My bus seems to be significantly late ... sigh."
And at 5:13pm: "And now the second 96 bus has passed me going the other way... <expletive>"

Bus arrived at 5:35pm, dropped me off at 5:57pm. I actually arrived just in time to take Communion. I got to collect the Offering and touch base with Pr. Lisa about the relevant things (though I totally forgot that I'd brought sticky nametags to drop off).

Waiting for the bus I was feeling like I really didn't wanna go to church, so it was nice to have positive feelings actually being there (despite my still feeling tired).
