RTT - It's raining. And it's cold. Did I get transported somewhere else overnight?

It's Tuesday so you know what that means. Grab the picture, head on over to the Unmom and join the fray.



So I survived the weekend in Denton. Youngest drove on the interstate. At night. And we made it in one piece. Eldest's kitten, he who was a she but is now an it, managed to only claw me once. All in all, a successful weekend.

And now it's raining. We haven't seen much of the wet stuff this year. We're in the midst of the worst drought in years and a couple of days of rain, while nice, won't do too much to relieve it. The water restrictions are so bad that restaurants can't serve you water unless you ask for it first. Had one waiter try to interpret that to mean he couldn't refill the glass despite being asked. Twit.

The weather bug says it's a balmy 70 degrees outside at 1 pm. Now, I know that's not cold to most people. But it's a considerable change from the 100+ days just last month. And downright chilly for those of us with crappy circulation. Especially since the thermometer at my desk just reached 69. After starting out at around 67.

I can personally attest to the fact that LG makes a great little cell phone. Especially since ours tend to take a dip at some point in their lives. All of our LG phones survived their immersion tests. Youngest's new Samsung did not. It's fried. She's going into to withdrawals as we speak. She's already hit 3500 texts this month and her current inability to be in constant contact is going to be tough. We bought her a refurbished BlackBerry online for 60 bucks. It should last her long enough to build up her upgrade points with Sprint. I hope. Maybe I should buy the insurance for it....

Note to self: do not carry the Pre in my pocket. Ever.

I bought this handy, dandy jewel while in Denton:




sorry it's so small : (

It's an Czech Army Surplus Medical Bag. Can't wait to fill it up with first aid gear and show it off. I am a such a geek.

Well, I really should be working. See ya'll next week.

I have had great luck with LG phones too!! My sons old LG had the life of a street urchin--it was mistreated and unloved many a night, washed multiple times (dried it out in rice each time) - and it just kept on ticking! It's our backup phone for anytime we have any issues with our current phones. The LG is a trusty old friend!
