    Wow. That was the first storm I've been through here that made me wonder how well protected our bathroom is. Heavy rain at a 45* slant and the sky was changing colors.

    The lightning was neat. The ground was wet, but I dont know how much rain we actually got.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Our backyard tried to flood and we lost power for a good 10 min. Even our dog that loves the rain wasn't having any of the storm last night. She was looking at us like "y'all are morons. Get your asses back inside."
    Got very little sleep last night. Just couldn't fall asleep.

    Dog is now white and brown again, as opposed to grey and brown. Hauled her inside, bathed her with flea soap, and kicked her back outside after drying her off.
    Went last minute shopping for the hardest person in my life to birthday shop for. Geek's just getting money this year, screw it.
    Taking niece to the water park pool later, should be fun.
    I think I have the engr job, just waiting for them to send the official offer letter to see what small pittance they want to pay me.

    ETA: OK, not taking Niece to the pool. Her and her mama are sick.

    In case the job is yours, congratulations! sorry they offered the drafting job to someone else.

    Isn't it funny how we bathe our dogs and then send them right back outside where they just get dirty again?

    Storms... we didn't get much for good storms this spring. I'm kind of disappointed. Could really go for a good storm (tornados not required)

    Do you actually give your husband money for his birthday or just tell him to go buy himself something nice? lol

    We have separate bank accounts and a joint bill pay account that we both pay into, so I actually gave him the money.
    I bathe her mostly to make sure she doesn't get ticks and fleas. I'm used to her being mostly grey and brown, so a white and brown dog was kinda funny to see.
    I'm really hoping for the job. I called them today to see if they sent something snail mail (our letter carrier gets the wrong house half the time) and he said they'd "have it by Friday."

    Yes, yes, indeed. I hope it is good news. Then waffle some of your job acceptance fragrance my way and get me out of here.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    THanks Canio. I'll do what I can, Caveman.
    Today's rundown:
    I was exhausted. Wiped. Kaput. Laid down to take a nap and got a text. Sister in Law had changed her mind and was willing to let Niece swim. There went the nap.
    She gets to my place and I open the door to find a red eared slider in my yard the size of a dinner plate. My sister in law found in the road and begged me to take it in and give it a home. I put it in the tub until I could figure something out. Meanwhile, I went and wore Niece out, did some water exercises (swimming with and against current, water planches, water planche push ups, dragging niece out of the current when she wanted out of the lazy river mock up, etc), and ran her home after feeding her, all the while wondering what on earth to do with the damn turtle.
    Got home, Geek was home, gave him his birthday gift. Did some research, discovered that red eared sliders are native enough to this area that he could've conceivably wandered up from the duck pond after storm.
    On our way to Geek's folks place for his birthday, we put the red eared slider in the pond and he was happy. Went to his folks place, had pork chops, homemade habanero chile', sopa, and refried beans, in addition to marshmallows and marshmallow brownies. Tried not to pass out on the couch and failed. Woke up, went through the rigmarole of prying Geek away from Niece and Father in Law, who both want him to either play or fix something every time we're over, crashed out again, woke up, successfully pried Geek away, and came home. About to crash out now.
