I am pleased and honestly amazed that the power did not go out on me last night. That storm that hit--the lightning was simply incessant and the rain came down like a torrent and the thunder never stopped. I can't believe the power didn't go out! I went and lit a candle and was all prepared to start bailing by candlelight and flashlight. Well, I did bail, but by wonderful electrical light, instead. Just wow!

     The surprise bridal shower at work for Shelley this morning went off perfectly--she simply had no clue until she walked into that room. I did the decorations, my boss the cake and door prize, and Greg the game, and it went wonderfully. It just feels so good. =)

     I'm grateful that insanely busy workdays go insanely quickly. This week is charging along quite nicely!

     The storms passed to the north of my home today, and they passed to the south, but nothing very heavy fell at my place--for which I am immensely grateful, as there was still water standing in the back corner of my closet from the 3:30 am entertainment. And what comes through this evening I'll be home to deal with. Thank you, God!

drained rain, rain GO AWAY!

Ugh, I wish there was something that could be done about the flooding. How horrible! But with the money problems your landlords seem to have, I doubt it'll get fixed any time soon, even if there is anything that can be done.

Heheh, glad the bridal shower was more successful than your coworkers trying to sneak a b-day card for you amongst them ^_~

Certainly not now, since the caretaker works full-time at the State Fair while it's running. I'm hoping the forecast is right for a change--no rain expected from now until the weekend, so hopefully the ground will finally have a chance to dry out.

She was so convinced it was a staff meeting, and even Kathy (her best friend) managed to keep her mouth shut, though she said she almost blew it when they were doing stuff together on the weekend. =)

Why is the weather so loony everywhere this year? I love storms, but there's something to be said for a dry residence, too ;P

I saw your lovely Poser picture just now as well - good job in beating it into submission. ;) The Star model looks just adorable! And I can stop picturing him as a sort of whippet now (no idea, don't ask).

Good luck with the bloody buckets! XP

I don't love storms, so I wish this lot would go where they're appreciated! ;) Still, they're saying no rain for the rest of the week, so I hope they're right for a change (they can't seem to hit the nail on the head 12 hours in advance these days ;P)

Thanks! Nope, he's not got a whippet build because there's no desert dog in his immediate ancestry.

Hopefully I'm done with them for a while!
