Weird DayPosted: July 28, 2008
Today was a weird day all over. It wasn’t just me. My co-workers at the market were having a weird day, too. Was it the uncharacteristic humidity? Hellooooo Dolly! Remnants of the hurricane that hit the Rio Grande Valley snuck in the back door through New Mexico, flooding Ruidoso, and delivering always welcome rain to our area. ANYWAY, today was just WEIRD.
Maybe Mercury was in retrograde, like the girl in the checkstand next to me suggested. I wouldn’t know, I don’t follow astrology, other than reading my horoscope for fun.
I have no idea. Pfft.
Talked to Realtor today, she already has a hint of a nibble on our house. Actually, she has a guy who’s pre-qualified for a loan in our range. She said she was going to mention us to him. It kinda makes it more real. More scary.
Change. Scary. Exciting. Sad. Happy. Worried.
Got the storage space rented. Scary.
Screwed myself today. Gas price was down 20 cents. Excited. Picked up wrong pump, premium instead of regular and still paid 3.99 a gallon.
Egghead from Rice University believes granite contains cancer-causing radiation. (Radon gas.) Other eggheads sneer at the suggestion of danger. As do, surprise, granite-selling people. Possible new house has granite counter tops. DW is KEEPING the granite countertops.
QUESTION: If the radiation from radon gas causes cancer, why to they prescribe radiation to FIGHT cancer? I’m sure there’s a convoluted scientific reason. Just wondering…
We don’t even HAVE the house yet. But things regarding the fostering and new house idea have been going so smoothly SO FAR. You know, I believe if it wasn’t meant to be, something would happen to turn us in a different direction. It still may. But I am trying to be optimistic.
I suppose this is what is called a ‘leap of faith.’
