Today, I prepared for my birthday tomorrow. I cleaned house, organized dining room cupboard so that I always have an empty drawer to stash the papers that build up on the table and always have paper pad and pen in a predictable place. Plus, I paid my bills, completed correspondence, called to update Obamacare. I picked flowers, changed cat littler box. Really, I was so done and ready to relax with my knitting, all cozy against the rain pounding on the roof. My neighbor called to report their basement flooded. I checked mine and, sure enough, water pouring onto floor.
