Mind the Gap

That is what the tube tells you as you step off in London. I mean really, the English could make anything sound fancy. My goal on return to America is to use words like “delicate and rather” much more often.

Today was exhausting with the highlight being sitting in a park looking at our map. We actually spent the whole day trying to track down reservations for our Italy trip and if you ever try to do something like this, let me save you the trouble. You can’t! You can’t book an overnight reservation for an Italian train in London so save your time and legs and go see the Tate Modern. We would have loved that advise because we literally were sent all over London by people who told us, “oh yeah, these people can do that for you.”

So anyway, the day was just getting mother’s day postcards in the Royal Mail and staying awake while taking in a bit of London. We already ran into ATM problems so not making it to the Tate Modern was probably good because it gave us the chance to call our bank from London.

Honestly we weren’t planning on seeing anything today anyway so the day was great and we are looking forward to heading to Italy. Well, more than that we are looking forward to bed but don’t tell anyone.

I am so glad you made it!!! We had group last night, prayed for and missed you both. it was a really good meeting at Charlotte's apt.
We did community group leader evaluations and I just ordered everyone to write exactly what I instructed. 100% compliance. Minimal complaints from a few of the free thinkers was swiftly crushed. So all in all it was a pretty good meeting.

Please don't forget to tell the Pope I said hello.
