Well today was a bit of a dissapointment. First I woke up late, I slept through my alarm clock I had set it for 0500. I woke up at 0750 and realised I missed the train so I I had decided to call the whole trip off figureing it wasn't worth it since there were no NBEC trains today and well it's a weekend so the yards in Bathurst and Miramichi were quiet I thought we diffently won't make it.
So I called the whole trip off by 0800, so I was up stairs makeing my morning tea and decided to turn on the scaner and mope around the house like a child upset about something when I heard the Ocean saying they were one mile from somewheres. My ears perked up, so I called the train station, the Ocean was late arriving and had left Campbellton at 0806 this morning so I rushed to get my self dressed and hastely got the girls dressed as well and we were out the door gunning it all the way to Bathurst to catch it arriving there. But I missed it by five minutes. So I hurried back to the highway and stayed in between 100 and 120 kph all the way to the chi. When we finally arrived I went to the station and again to my dismay I was fifteen minutes late. I shouldn't have stopped for the coffee! So we spent most of the day in Miramichi and had a quick lunch and decided to head back home. So the whole day was a complete failure however it was better than my typical Saturday. I figured I was about ten to fifteen minutes behind the 14 the whole time, it was quite dissapointing but I got to spend the day with my Daughters.
