Denver & Northern Colorado Here I Come...

I leave tomorrow afternoon for Denver and Northern Colorado. I have a meeting in Denver on Friday. My meeting is at the Rocky Mt. Synod and is for the Congregational Ministry Board (CMB), of which I sit on. It does happen to be my first meeting of the CMB and I am very excited about it. The meeting is most of the day (around 8:30am to 3:30pm). As sick and weird as it sounds, I enjoy full day meetings. It might be that I rarely get to partake in them, and when I do its a treat.

Then on Friday afternoon, after my most of the day meeting is over, I am heading up to Eaton, CO (which is East of Ft. Collins & north of Greeley) to spend the weekend with my former pastor and his family. I must say its a nice little break away from my normal crap of school & work and is going to have to pass for my spring break, seeing as I do not get one at CNM.

Only downside to the trip is my rental car. I am less then 6 months away from turning 25 year old (when the hell did that happen?). Anyway, as such, I am still required to pay the 15 dollar a day under 25 fee that Enterprise Car Rental charges. While this is much cheaper then any of the other car rental company's, its still accounts for about 50 dollars on my car rental bill, which just sucks. What would have been a 135 dollar car rental for the week turned into a 185 dollar car rental with the fee tacked on. I have called around & there seems to be no way to get rid of the fee, which sucks more. But its life, and soon I will be 25 and not have to worry anymore.

Well, I think that is about the only new thing in my life. Ya, I know, I lead an exciting life. lol. School is going good & so is work. I still love my job for the most part, which is a blessing considering I just had my 4 year anniversary with the company back on the 16th of Feb. Next year, which will be 5 years, I get another week of vacation, and I am very much looking forward to that. Granted, I am still not sure what to do with 2 weeks of vacation and I am not sure I will know what to do with 3 weeks. Oh well, maybe I will take some time off for once...
