Don't hold your breath!
First the snow. It seems that we may have seen the last of the white stuff. Well according to the weather folks... however, the latest commercial for one news chanel here kinda proves that we never know. I hope this link connects to the ad...it's very funny. okay that first link didn't work well...try this. www.9news.com then click on the graphic in the top left corner that says "Tired of the Snow?" that should bring up the commercial.
But I was reminded yesterday that March is usually our snowiest month. I so hope that is wrong for this year. But I also have to remember that our worst blizzard ever (well since I've lived here) was in March. We had snow drifted up to 5 feet in front of our garage. And of course the snow plows can and plowed us back in as soon as we had gotten ourselves out. But that's the thing with snow...even if you are able to shovel yourself out, most everyone else isn't out yet so there is nothing to do once you get out. It's just the feeling of freedom that you are no longer trapped, even if you have no where to go.
I also have to whine and complain about something else though. I don't know when it will ever end because it seems that the other parties involved are not letting it end. I really just don't understand why either. It was their decision to leave with no notice leaving us in the lurch to pick up and do their work. We did so thinking that this would be an amicable split. I fully expected to even send people their way. But they have decided that burning bridges and trying to make us fall is more important. It appears that they will not be happy until we are no longer here... (I'm talking the death of a group, not people). It's so sad when supposed friends stab you in the back and sit there turning the knife to make sure you're dead.
What really gets me about this is how one of the two used to talk about how other groups similar to ours have had major schisms and never recovered, but how ours had been so strong. It makes me think that this person was planning just how to destroy our group for a very long time. This person also used to talk about how she so detested sophomoric behavior in adults...and yet this is exactally what she and her cohort are doing.
For what? I just don't understand what it was that we did that could cause such vindictive behavior. All we've ever done was to expect that they follow the same set of guidelines that everyone else does. They seem to think that they should be exempt because they did all this work for us, and that they should also be allowed to continue to twist the knife.
What the don't seem to realize is that the group is much stronger than just those they are trying to hurt. This group would go on even if we stepped down. So in the end we will not step down, we will take their abuse and continue on.
