Is it Monday again?

It was another night of bathroom trips. I was grateful I wasn't throwing up (I hate that).

Sidebar: I have used the toilet so much the screws are loose and it rocks. I'll have to fix that.

I got up at 8:00 a.m. again (which is really late for me). I went out back to check the rain gauge (perhaps it rained overnight?) But there was nothing in it. However, it was cool with a slight breeze. So, I skipped writing the Blog for a while, grabbed a cup of coffee and sat on the back patio (out of the sun) and enjoyed the morning. That lasted less than an hour, until it was uncomfortable.

Back inside, I wrote the Blog. Then I started making phone calls. I called two separate doctor's offices that were billing me without submitting it to either Medicare or Blue Cross Blue Shield (they'll look into it), rescheduled my eye appointment and the infectious disease doctor visit (I missed both last week) and finally called WOW about my cable problem (guy will be out Wednesday between 8 and 11:00 a.m.)

They said on the news that there was a possibility of severe thunderstorms after 2:00 p.m., so I took the trash out to the road early.

I ate more pasta salad for lunch.

Then I hunkered down to wait for the much needed rain.

I waited... and I waited... and I waited...

Finally, I checked the radar online. Seemed like at that time all the action was north of here. I just had blue skies.

I kept the computer on the radar. At times they showed a big green or even red blob right over Redford. But when I looked outside, it was still sunny. WTF?

I ate more pasta salad for dinner.

My daughter Melissa called me back and we talked for a while. She answered my original question about golf (don't ask) and we went on from there.

By the time it was dark, I still had no rain although the TV was saying some places had 1-3 inches of rain elsewhere.

I woke up in the night to just go pee (for a change) and looked outside. The street looked wet and I thought great! I got rain!!!

I checked on Tuesday morning and there was less than a quarter inch of rain in the gauge. Damn!!!


  1. YES I got about 1 1/2 to 2 inches...not enough, but a start. More scheduled for Friday or Saturday

  2. I got spit! But, since I still don't have my riding mower fixed yet, I guess I'm not complaining.
