Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Rain! All night long! And it's still raining! That would definitely be a downer for a lot of people, but not down here! Wooo hooooooo! What a relief from the endless string of 100 plus degree days!

This is celebration day. I can see life at the end of the tunnel again. Today and maybe a few hours on Tuesday and we'll be done with the current project! All that and a bag of chips!

I'm working on my 'things to do' list once again.

Clean the house! It's so bad right now. It looks like the last time I came home from Mexico and the two bachelors had been living in it for weeks without me!

Start reading again! I've got a new stack of books waiting for me. I picked up Jodi Picoult's Handle With Care and Stuart Woods' Loitering With Intent at the library today, and I'm in the middle of Adriana Trigiani's Very Valentine at the moment.

Get back to the gym! I'm shocked at the toll from sitting on my rear all day for three months. Back to the elliptical and the 8:30 a.m. circuit training class!

Find a class for making those soldered charms! I've got so many cute old black and white family pics that would be perfect for those!

Anyway, one more full day. By the way, I've busted my rear at work this week and may be up to the point where I can break even and end up making about the same amount as the last project. But what a killer. I have blister/callouses on the fingertips of my mouse hand (not to mention my fingers on that hand feel numb at times). I'm glad I'm almost done until next month! I pretty much learned to ignore The Whip and not let her get to me. She's also been staying out of the room, probably because she knows we'll be filling out evaluations today. And believe me, I'm not stupid enough to really think those are anonymous since you're logged in on a company computer!

We were laughing yesterday about who the heck they'll find to do this project next year. Maybe a whole new bunch of newbie employees? I think our whole group learned a very important lesson from this project. What was it George W. said?

I know what you mean about the rain, Beck. Since it rains so seldom here in South Texas, I've come to really appreciate it when it does. Sounds like you'll have your day filled with all your projects! I read Jodi Picoult's "Plain Truth"...I really liked it. I'll have to try something else she's written.

I'm just howling at the Bush Video.
