Today, I am grateful for:

     Being back at work before I go crazy.

     The wonderful, time-devouring diversion of watching all 3 extended-edition LOTR movies...and HP 5 and a couple Silver Brumby episodes.

     Being back at work where there's lovely air conditioning when the whole week is slated to be hot and humid (90 F/32 C and up). At least I can eat here!

     The local weatherline, so I can call and find out the temperature and forecast when I don't have internet.

     Shanra. *snugs* (I'll get to your lovely comments later. =)

     Delicious corn-on-the-cob that was grown in the neighboring suburb.

     A wonderful mother with practical advice on cleaning and smell-squashing (the room just smells like vinegar and Lysol now--much better! ;)

     Have I mentioned how wonderful it is to be at work yet?

*grins* I love LotR marathons! A great way to spend the weekend, in my opinion.

Noooes! Not the return of heat and humidity! It's been so lovely the past couple of days. *sighs* Knew it couldn't last. At least every day brings us closer to autumn. ^_~

Glad your mother was able to help with the mildewy smell that comes with flooding. What caused the flooding, by the way? Was it rain or a burst pipe in the apartment or something? Hmm, I wonder if a de-humidifier would help air things out as well? *shrugs*

Have a great day at work in the a/c!

I can never get myself to spent time on such long movies under normal circumstances, so this was great, in that respect. I'd only seen the extended RoTK once before, anyway.

It's been lovely to have some brief reprieves in July =) and August is coming!

It was the thunderstorm that formed over the cities last Wednesday and just sat there getting bigger and bigger without moving. The ground was dry, but so much rain fell at once it just went everywhere. And no, I don't want to buy yet another electrical thing that I'd hardly ever use and just adds to the clutter. =P

Thanks! It's going fast (I have to do Corey's job as he took the day off to read the last Harry Potter book ;)

Er, well yeah, I couldn't justify buying a dehumidifier for just this one thing either. But perhaps you could ask around at work and see if someone has one that you can borrow? Just an idea.

He took the day off to read HP? Wow. That's... a fan. 0_0

Heh, he got it at midnight Friday night, and since he's a slow reader, he wanted a 3-day weekend to try to get through it. Didn't quite make it--he has 100 pages left. Maybe I should peek over the wall of his cubicle at times and see if I can catch him reading at work. ;)

So glad you got rid of the smell.
Are things dry now and it is a matter of putting everything back?

I AGREE ON THE AIR CONDITIONING! We are going to be hotter too, upper 90's but w/o
the humidity.

Too bad I could not join you for some of LOTR movies.
Enjoy yourself at work. SD

Me too!
That's right. Hopefully I can track down Fred after work tonight. I left to go shopping Sunday at around 6:50 am, and he was already gone by the time I got back.

Well, they appear to be blowing it with the forecast again. It's cloudy just like yesterday, and hasn't even reached 80 yet (but quite humid). I'm not complaining! =D

Movies and corn on the cob are fun! I am, thanks!
