    Not to worry, you'll be in the 90s come Friday.
    OTOH, our highs are going to be about average, but cloudy and rain rain rain - I NEED SUN!

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    I have no motivation. After finishing a couple of all consuming assignments I have to do some piddly follow up work and I just can't find the energy to care.

    Real GOTD:
    If you save something at a filepath for posterity, don'tcha think you might want to LEAVE IT at that filepath? I'm having to root through a 91.7 GB directory to find a file that someone saved into another file path without telling anyone actually on the project.

    I tried to set up my rain barrel yesterday and accidentally knocked the downspout loose from the gutter. Which is 3 storeys up, and I don't have a long ladder. My one friend who does have a long ladder had knee surgery last week and can't bring it over (or walk, for that matter), and I'm too short to load it on his van. And today, it is pouring with rain.

    GOTD: Three people I have contracted to do work either have not gotten the work done, or were non-communicative, and it's going on three weeks. One is here now, finally! I would have thought the economy would be reason enough to be on good terms with people willing to hire you. So now, I'm on the phone yet again to find out why the appraisal hasn't arrived, and the leaning 80' pine tree is still standing. These were all companies highly recommended!

    Was so kind to give the horses access to more grass, the wire slacks a little and OFF they are! Spent about 1 hour getting them back in, cos there was noooo way they'd give up that luscious grass without fighting! Stupid cow-horses...
