Most of the people there would probably not like to hear what I've been up to since I left the church, both figuratively and literally. But it's also not that I think they're wrong - I think my church at home had it better than most churches I've heard about.
It was a promise I made a long time ago, to be there at her wedding, and I don't regret it - I just don't understand why I did it. I don't understand what I'm supposed to come away from it with. That and the usual post-wedding depression that I usually have, and it wasn't that great a weekend, since I'm also trying to quit smoking.
I've gone almost a week, with a couple stumbles. It's just FYI, not laying down the law - I think I have the will to do this long haul, but I may take breaks from it to keep myself sane. I'm patching, but this may be the wrong week for it - test equipment keeps breaking down at work with the new hardware changes, and I wasted more than half my day in the lab because of two bad calibrations and a messed-up bootloader.
