It is still raining with the humidity through the roof, at least my hair is curly. I guess the rhyme of April showers brings May flowers is running a month behind this year. Seattle will probably never be a place that I look into moving because of the constant rain. I like the rain once in awhile and night when sleeping but really during the day it must makes you stuck in the house.
I did manage to wash the dog today. That made me realize that I will never be an animal groomer. I can't handle all of the hair and the smell of a wet animal. It must makes me shiver. Bridget did smell wonderful after she was done (it was the shampoo). However, her coat looked glossy with lots of shine and man the volume was amazing. She could have done a photo shoot, ok maybe that was a little far.
I got to see the new medical building that my dad has been working on. It is pretty incredible. I can't believe how big it is an how many different specialities are now in the building. They have a cancer center that has its own doors so sick people from urgent care don't mix with the immunocompromised and get them sick. The east wing is had a neat stair case too that divides. Their parking garage is suppose to be ready on July 1st so the cars won't be parked on the street everywhere. Anyway I am impressed. It seems like every time I come back to Washington things are different.
It is nice to be from a small town though. There is something about people who know you or the friendly wave when you drive down the street. You don't even have to know someone and they will wave back at you. I try to wave at the people in my subdivision in Columbia but I don't have a great response rate. My one neighbor doesn't even wave, her boyfriend does so maybe that is a good sign.
I am excited that a few of my fellow meddies will be moving into the hood. Also my little sis and a few of her friends will live down the street from me. That will be nice to be within walking distance instead of having the phone conversation about who went to who's house last.
