I Now Have Even More Reasons Why I Don't Want To Go On A Cruise
I saw the headline about this ship going down, but I have not read all of the stories about it yet. I have never wanted to go on a cruise. When I was a little girl, I saw the 1953 version of The Titanic and had nightmares forever about it. I couldn't swim then. I can swim now. But....still have no desire to go on a cruise. The weird thing is....that I love to ride in... or drive.. a speed boat. On a Lake. During the day. The photo above just looks like a nightmare.
Our weather has been super crazy. Yesterday, it was in the 50's...warm and nice. I turned the heat off. During the night, tornado sirens went off, and we had hail and storms. No damage that I heard of. An earthquake hit southern Illinois also. Today it was 8 degrees....super windy,,,,and miserable. So I am left wondering....could this be the end of the world that we have been told about since we were born. I personally don't think so...but the weather and the news and so many other things about life can make you wonder. Reading about our history reassures me that life has always been difficult and in turmoil for many people.
We have been super busy and more than a little tired...moving things in the house. I think I mentioned that before. I have also been spending a fair amount of time on ancestry.com. I have met a few other people researching the same relatives. I doubt if we will ever meet....but who knows.
