Rain And Drain

After I got offline last night, I watched TV until 10pm, planning to read the newspaper then. I was falling asleep while I watched the last show, so I set the VCR to watch the late news and was in bed asleep by 10:15pm. I set the alarm for 2am, but woke up at 1:23am soaked again. I got up, watched the late news while I read the paper, drank the rehydration fluid, and then headed to bed at 4am. I read until 6am, came out to get the paper and watched a few minutes of the TV (still no agreement -- a shutdown will affect this area greatly), and went to sleep. More hot flashes, another soaking, and I woke up at 1:30pm, a half-hour before the alarm was set.

I headed out to get money for next week and on the way back in picked up Wednesday's and Thursday's mail. I got my pap smear result -- Low Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion. It means I have to have the next pap smear in 12 months instead of 24. Not really a big deal, but I wasn't expecting it.

I didn't get back in time to make the appointment with my primary for the hot flashes and pain appointment, so I'll do that Tuesday.

That makes a lot of water come up on that part of the mulch, and maybe up on my balcony. I tried the handle of the broom to get the mulch out, which has worked before, and it didn't work, so I emailed our management guy.

  • Downpour, but No Rainbow

    I watched the clouds get darker and darker from the west and then the skies opened up. About 10 minutes later, the sun came back out, but I didn't…
