A state of intrusion

Some times life can be a complete state of intrusion when you least expect it leaving your daily life in limbo.  That is what these last few months have been for me,
One day life is simple and normal, then  out of the blue I get an emergancy medical call about my mother's health failing, So naturally I do my best to be in Texas for her.
Bus ride however was long and enduring. An expreience I shall never forget or hope to endure in the near future.  This bus was called a Mega Bus, and I would not recomend it to anyone who wishes to travel cheap. 
As for my mother, her health has improved, a great deal since I first arrived, So I'm thinking, its time I get on back home and be with the man I love and miss. 
  Since my last trip on the bus was a complete nightmare I thought I'd go by train, only later to discover that the total cost would be way out of my budget and  I'd have to spend a night in Chicago IL. therefore that was not an option.
So now I'm thinking,umm? looks like its a ride back on that Horrible Mega Bus again. So I go down to the bus depot that I had arrived at when I first came to town, only to discover that it is now completly out of bussiness. and  now the local city transit has taken over and is also now a greyhound station. so I asked  the lady to make  me a ticket to Eden Praire Mn. only she can't find that city in her computer. and says I have to make it for Burnsville Mn.  When I get home I get online and go to teh greyhound website only it won't even let me purchase a ticket out of San Angelo Texas. we call the 800 number, and is told that we can not purchase a ticket online from San Angelo Texas, because San angelo's bus is Concho Coach. so now needless to say, I have to make another trip down to the station and buy my ticket there for Burnsville Mn. 
  If there is one thing I have learned from this whole ordeal is, I understand why people just fly home. Traveling from State to state can be so confussing traveling by bus or train, so after this trip, I have come to the conclusion that I am diffintly going to learn to lose my fear of flying and just get on it and get home as quickly and as easily as possible just to advoid anymore state of intrusion in the near future.
