I was checking in with her to be sure that she and hers would be warm and dry with the upcoming deluge (we shall see if it really happens). Dude (does that tell you how long I've been here?) had a bad accident last summer but is recovering. One reaction to that is that she decided to live life to the fullest and to get a better job. She got a job that she is excited about, gave her bosses at the 911 center her notice and will start the new job soon. She feels relieved that she is living what's best for her. The 911 center promised much but did not follow through. I'm quite happy for her, hope that Dude will fully recover, and hope that the rain will be a drop in the bucket. They are fully prepared with generators and water and foodstuffs. If they start to float away they know that they and the furbabies have a place to stay with us.
