Damp but not down

Criminy! I guess I'd better get busy on that ark!

It was overcast when I left to run some errands, and by the time I came out of the grocery store (my last errand), it was pouring! After loading my stuff in the car, I had to unload it when I got home...not a long way from the garage to the house by any means, but it was coming down hard enough that I got soaked! No big deal,I guess, because I need to hop in the shower, anyway. I'll consider it a pre-shower, like the pre-rinse at the car wash!

I closed out my account at the credit union today. What a weird feeling! Now that I'm not working, there's really no reason to keep up 2 accounts, and we might as well get the higher interest on savings that Ken's bank gives him. What a strange feeling to not have my own account, though....

I also ran by Target to get Mother's Day cards. I get so emotional picking out those kinds of cards that I always get all choked up! It's kind of embarrassing to be standing there in the card aisle and wiping my eyes. I try not to let anyone see me.

Clinton did indeed win Indiana, as I'm sure you've heard. It was getting pretty close there for a while. She didn't win by much, but apparently she's staying in it.

Brr, after getting all wet, I'm chilled. I need a hot shower!

It's been wet and rainy here too. It's been quite chilly. I still have the kittens, we are now looking at this weekend. The mother cat is definitely going to the vet this Saturday. I'm keeping my finger crossed our plan works and we are able to catch her. Doc and I still have separate accounts. He wants to open up a joint account so if anything happens to him, I have access to whatever I need (He's always thinking ahead like that). It's kind of a necessity since we are not married, nor plan on getting married in the future. (Hugs) Indigo

It poured down rain here as well last night. I thought my trailor was going to come down. .....Christine

i often have went out into those heavy showers on warm days and walked in them, like to my car, on purpose. Kinda nice but i hate for the clothes to stick.
You are sentimental in the card aisle..i think thats sweet.
