Cloudy With A Chance Of Showers

A chance of rain on Thursday! I actually see it in the forecast. Maybe it will really happen. I must say I am looking forward to cooler weather. It is quite hot in the mobile home in the evenings and I have to open the windows for a while to air it out. My windows don't have screens so I can't leave my windows open all the time.

Work was quiet today. The boss flew away at lunch. I'll see him next year. I get to wear jeans for the rest of the week. Little things like that make the day better.

On my break I did some online Christmas shopping. My list has gotten considerably shorter this year. Many friends and family have decided not to exchange gifts this year as it has basically come down to trading gift cards. I have 4 more people to buy for and then I will buy the rest of the gifts when I am visiting my sister for Christmas. It is easier to buy for her kids when they can go shopping with me and pick things out. So far I have stayed within my budget.

On a different topic, I was backing out of the covered parking spaces at work and scraped my truck on a pole. Ouch. I usually park with the pole on the driver's side so when I pull out there is nothing in my way. Today I parked on the other side of the pole...and then forgot and pulled out right in to it. I have really beat it up lately. It isn't something that needs to be fixed immediately but it is a reminder that I should have a replacement car fund. Poor truck.
