“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” ~William Arthur Ward
Hanna ended up being a lot of rain and not much more. I am very thankful. It rained torrentially from about 6:30 PM Friday evening until, well, until well after I was asleep Friday night. Saturday proved to be a gorgeous day. It was bizarre, as if nothing had ever happened. So, thanks for all the well wishes! It warms a girl’s heart to know you care.
I see that Ike is headed toward southern Florida and then on into the Gulf…perhaps up toward New Orleans. Hope it changes its mind and heads out to sea somewhere. Those folks have certainly endured their share.
In other non-storm-related news, Hubby and I have come to the (shocking!) conclusion that we must begin to look at purchasing another family vehicle. I know, you are all saying “it’s about time!” The latest development with Big Red is something electrical and now the interior lights, radio, blinkers, speedometer, odometer, gas gauge, and more, are all non-functional. Could be just a fuse, but nevertheless, I can’t very well drive around not knowing how fast I’m going or how much fuel I have. SIGH. I’m off to Dr. Gene’s tomorrow to see if that can be remedied with minimal financial drainage–to keep us going long enough to find new transportation. OY. The thought of a car payment makes me want to vomit, but then again, so does the astronomical amount of cash that we have spent on Big Red over the last year. Either way–if we have a car payment or if we pay monthly maintenance on a sick car….it’s money going out. I’d rather we put out money every month on something I know is going to be reliable. Won’t y’all be glad when you don’t have to hear about my car woes anymore?? I’ll be glad to not tell you, trust me. I am just thankful that getting a new (or new to us) car is a possibility.
Just seems like there isn’t anything too interesting happening these days. I’ll take that as a good thing. A seemingly boring life is definitely something to be thankful for.
