Wet Monday


Have you ever tried to dry yourself with paper towels after you got soak from the rain? That was my experience this morning when I went to work. It was absolutely pouring and I parked as close to the door as I could get, but the hair came straight from the rain. All of us had wet clothes. I was lucky because I had a sweater in the car which helped a little.
We had rain up until noon and then the sun came out this afternoon. This coming weekend is Trails West, where we have bands, crafts, and food vendors in town for three days. Usually it is hot and where they hold it, and isn't wheel chair friendly. They up the price this year. If you buy the button in advance, it is good all three days, but if you just go for one day it cost more then what the button did and it can only be used that night or day. I just don't understand why they don't move the main events to the civic arena, where it is air-condition and you have seats to set in. Today was a trip to the city for a doctor visit. It didn't make me feel very good after we left. Basically they can't tell us what cause the episode that put him in the hospital for a night for observation. If he has another spell, then we will go from there. Everything was o.k. with the labs, EKG, and the x-rays. I always did say that he like to complicate things a little more.
They were suppose to come today and fix my outside security light. They didn't make it as we are still in the dark. You don't realize how much you miss something until it doesn't work. You can't look out and see what is going on at the moment.
Wednesday is the big day at work. We will have lunch, but I don't know what it will be yet. It is my choice because of it being my birthday. We were going to cook on the grill, but we always have all the free loaders showing up at noon for a free lunch even though it wasn't meant to be that way. I will come up with something more then pizza that is for sure. It is also the day we have to watch out for the school buses as school starts. They are going just long enough for it to qualify for a full day. They had to go to the end of May here in town last year because of snow days so this year they are trying to build in extra days.
My prayers go out to those in the south eastern states and hope they don't have any hurricane damage. Take care.
