- Kevin DIDN'T get to his physical therapy appointment today. He has a hard enough time under normal conditions. I just couldn't risk it with the rain. I couldn't get him out in it. You see, I have to drop him off at a curb at the doctor's office, and he waits there standing alone until I park the car and run back to him. (thankfully he doesn't fall) In the rain, especially the rain today....who knows what could have happened. We may need to get a temporary handicapped card to hang from the rear view mirror until he can get around without the walker. He doesn't want it, but for days like today, we may need it. So, long story short, we had to reschedule. ARG!
- Now the car is having trouble starting. I'm not sure if its an electrical issue or the starter or alternator. Fun, fun! It's time to take it in for it's oil change and we will just have it checked out. But, that's money I surely do not have to get it fixed. ARG!
- Some people's kids! WOW! I would have NEVER dreamed certain kids would act like that! I am SHOCKED and AMAZED! And I use to think a lot of these kids! I never dreamed they would treat another person like that. Not caring how much they were putting another person out like that. Makes me wonder what their real motive was. Sad! Oh well. I still love the family! They are an awesome family. Just still in shock!
- We have hit an all time record for the state of Arizona! Mesa got 4.5 inches of rain today! Everything is flooded. Schools were closed or gave kids the option to stay home. We tried to get Curtis to work today. They turned him away. He was thrilled. He called it a birthday present from Heavenly Father. Then when we tried to get Lexi to school, we couldn't get anywhere near the school, so I had Curtis turn around and bring her home. My work called and said if you can get to work safely, come in. Otherwise, if you cannot, stay home. They declared the entire state of Arizona a state of emergency. We don't do rain folks. The freeways were flooded everywhere. Some worse than others, of course. Here is a photo of one area freeway..
There were other photos but this was the big story of the day. Police told people it was safe to drive through this. Apparently NOT!
