Never So Happy To Hear It Rain...

After walking a four mile distance on the Burke-Gilman trail in the heat of the day (AGAIN!) and surviving yet another afternoon of near 80 heat, I was never so happy to hear that familiar sound of rain as I was this evening! Yep, the winds of change are blowing through my usually rainy city and the temperatures are supposed to drop back down in the 60's again by tomorrow. WooHoo!!!

Having these past several days of "heat" (I know Miss Chris, my definition of heat pales in comparison to YOURS!), I have grown to appreciate the idea it WOULD eventually rain again here in Seattle...and I am ready for some nice drizzle and cooler air. I'm just a "nicer" person when I'm in my comfort zone of 65 degrees. LOL


There's really not much happening in my mundane world to write about tonight. I have been "training" with Saint EB all weekend (walking in the sun/humidity) and HAVE lost a bit of weight...only about 25-30 pounds more to go to get back to simply being obese. LOL My energy level has drastically improved over the past several weeks and I once again feel "strong like bull"...something I haven't experienced for nearly 4 years since diagnosis of MS.


It is back to work for me tomorrow...this I am NOT thrilled about, but it DOES pay my bills, so...I see Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named for my 6 week post Novantrone follow up appointment on Tuesday. I plan to throw her across the room when she does the "push/pull against my hands" test...she should be THRILLED with my progress! Of course, I will have to suffer through her "I told you so" lecture...whatever! I have little else planned/scheduled for the rest of my week except work.


I had a horrible bout of insomnia last night (hormones...can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em), which kept me awake until nearly 6:00am this morning...soooo not cool. So I think I will try to hit the hay a bit earlier than usual for me tonight...I'm hoping to do some "make up" sleeping if at all possible. Add insomnia onto the heat factor and I'm just not as "nice" a person as I could be! LOL


Anybody have any topics they'd like to discuss here? That last thyroid post has probably scared all of you away from EVER suggesting I write about anything again...but if you've got something on your mind, leave it in the comments. I'm sure I can twist the topic to meet MY needs. LOL


Give me some ideas, folks, because MY life is quickly becoming too boring for words...

80!? We are hoping for an overnight LOW of 80. YOU SUCK!

I have a nice sunburn on my head from driving the convertable all weekend! I'm very sad to see the rain, but it's going to be good for my grass and the trees.

Sometimes I find myself missing rain. A day of rain around here is a huge deal. It's the number one story on the evening news and the reason for countless fender benders. We get rain every few months, except in the summer. Then it becomes "monsoon season". This means the rain clouds roll in like clockwork in the evening. The only thing is, our neighborhood sits at the base of a mountain and we hardly ever get any rain from the monsoons. Just the gigantic dust storms.

Whatever happens to you happens to us, Linda! :) We just have more trees, more white trash and fewer nice restaurants. :)

MISS CHRIS:

Most people complain it rains TOO much here in Seattle...but when the temps are in the 80's, sue me! I enjoy a bit of rain shower then...

Hey, I drove through Covington not long ago (on my way to "Enumscratch" to find one "on the loose")...I hardly recognized 272...all those new shops and restaurants! It's becoming a boomtown. But yes, I think the population of PWT (poor white trash) does out census Seattle right now...LOL

Haha... Covington is a funny blend of yuppie and opie. You'll see a BMW, followed by a Lexus SUV, followed by a jacked up pickup truck with a metal scrotum hanging from the trailer hitch. (like this one:)

I do miss Seattle.

Have myelin? said...

I think we have a mini-Seattle here. It rains every afternoon in the Springs.

Hey, I loved the crash course on steroids!

Anyone having trouble eating RICE? Or selected types of food items, such as bagels, potato chips, etc? Weird...

STEVE:

OMG!!! Where did you find that picture link?!? (Probably a neighbor's truck in Covington, I bet...LOL)

Are you proposing the above as a topic here? Because I'm GAME for just about any subject right now!
