I did seven orders today and was finally able to forward one that was "stuck." Whew.
In the meantime, James did some research yesterday while he was off and put the wheels in motion for us to refinance the mortgage at 4.375 percent. It's still with our own bank. We're getting a 15-year this time; at this rate it's only $120 more a month. I've wanted a 15 for ages, but the payment would have been too much four years ago. Whew. Spending all that money still makes me nervous, but heck, we have three-bedroom apartments here that start for that amount.
We've also arranged for Willow to have her teeth cleaned/moles removed, which just about blows the rest of the tax refund. Such is life.
In the meantime, the motto for today should have been "if you don't like the weather, drive a few miles." I left work to a brisk wind and clouds. A few miles down the freeway I ran into a squall of wind whipping rain and pushing the car sideways which lasted for the space between two exits. Back to clouds. Back to rain. Turning north again, drove for several miles to cloudy blue skies and bright sunlight, then back to clouds with dark clouds and lightning in the distance. By the time I was three miles from home, it was hailing! At home it was cloudy, with soft hail pellets cushioned in the grass and pine straw, the wind flapping the banner and the flag.
After supper the sun came out. Go figure!
