Yesterday was pretty much a lost cause. It just seemed like dumping a plate of wet cat food on our stoop (outside cat's breakfast) was the best thing to have happen. It started with them installing a backflow preventer and me listening to jackhammers for an hour to the urinals not flushing and me trying to find a plumber. In between, I fought with labels, had a luncheon meeting (that went well, happily), and dealing with really dumb drivers. What possesses people to park in the middle of a drive through and go talk to people elsewhere (we have a u drive though in front of the theatre/apartment office and some lady went in to chat apparently with the apartment staff and blocked everyone else in, including the maintenance workers and our theatre patrons. And she could have not cared less and saw all of us waiting.
However, my big guy, he went for the win. He needed to pick up a prescription after work, but he dropped me off first (it was 86, I was desperate to change from long pants to shorts). He helped me feed the cats first and then offered to pick up dinner for us because he knew I was tired. His prescription was all messed up and they jacked up the price three fold (and then they filled the wrong prescription). He was not a happy camper when he got home, but he did bring a delicious meal (roasted chicken, green beans almandine, and mashed sweet potato and carrots. He even picked up dessert. It was so nice to not have to fuss. Usually I don't mind, but I was just so tired last night. So, of course, once I went to bed, I woke right up. Sigh...
They measured our snow pack yesterday. We are 186% above average and if it melted all at once, it would cover the entire Central Valley in 35 feet of water. That's a lot of water... let's hope for a slow melt. It's our fifth wettest year on record.
Hey, we made it to the end of the week, so let's all give ourselves a pat on the back for that, if nothing else.
