The weather in Arizona is generally easy to forecast. Sun, sun, sun. Hot, hot, hot. At least that is the forecast a good three-fourths of the year. The other few weeks it is a slight chance of rain, and mild temperatures. This past week, it has been a bit of both. Saturday it actually only got to a high in the mid-70s, with wind gusts up to 30 mph. It was enjoyable, the cooler temps, but the wind I could have done without. Sunday I spent most of the day sneezing, blowing my nose, and dealing with watery eyes due to all the allergens the wind had stirred up. Even though there was a just a small bit of actual rain on Saturday, it wasn't enough to get all the crap out of the air. This morning I am still feeling my allergies, but hopefully it will clear up as the day goes on.
Back around the first of the year, I had tweaked my thumb somehow. Grabbing some box the wrong way, or that was too heavy for the grip I had on it, or something. Not even 100% sure it was something related to work. Either way, I strained or damaged a tendon/ligament at the base of my right-hand thumb. For the past few months, it has been a bit limited in movement, and obviously, if I grab something just a certain way, it is quite painful. The Wife, a physical therapist, said back in the beginning it probably would be something that requires surgery, but I have no desire to see a doctor about it. This last week, she happened to come across a thumb immobilizer wrap. I wore it most of Saturday, and actually seems to make a difference.
May is almost here, and that brings up the next couple holidays: Mother's Day and Memorial Day. I have no clue about Mother's Day. I was going to spend it with the Wife and kids, but now some other event is taking place that day, that I can't even begin to talk about how I feel about it. Well, I could, but it would probably just cause problems, and more issues with my siblings/parents. Yeah, you know what I mean. I am just going to look forward to Memorial Day, because at least then I know I will get a day off work. I am looking forward to August when I will finally have some vacation days to use once in awhile. Aside from that, I am tentatively planning at this time, to take a day off in June, but it will be without pay. have some plans that are not set in concrete yet, but should be fun.
Alright, kids are up and gone to school for the day, and I need to get some things done, too. Lord knows you all want me to get my shower done.
