My long ass day it now concluded. No more suicidal cats and crazy, crashing drivers for at least a few glorious hours.

WHAT IS UP WITH ALL THE CRAZY DRIVING TODAY!!?!
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why people are in a hurry to get places. It is not especially warm, sunny, rainy, or cold out which is the usual cause of "OMG! Imma die if I don't get where I need to go to!" syndrome.
This morning while driving by a church that was ramping up for mass, a little girl no older than nine or ten ran into the street in front of me. I was not doing more than 30 so stopping was not a big issue, however, the father of the child told me to slow down. Yes, that's me. Mister Fast & Furious here in my little while 225,000 mile car.
While I was in Puyallup earlier today, there was another set of drivers how just had to get in front of me even though I was technically speed at 45 MPH in a 35 zone. No, 45 was not enough; 55 is more like it. Coming back from Puyallup, same thing.
No, I am no Sunday driver and definitely distracted & inattentive while driving. I am in a minority of people who knows how to drive defensively as well as offensively (look at me bragging :-P ). However, I hate, hate, hate accidents because I HATE having the inconvenience of my car all bummed up. Okay, </rant>!
Anyhow, while striving my sister to work I saw the shadow out of the corner of my right eye and my sister gasped, saying that I had just hit a cat. For some reason it had bolted into to the street and under my tires. I do not know if I hurt it too much because it ran off even twice as fast as it ran into the street. On my way back taking the same route, there was no sign of the it. A little bit later this morning I noticed that there were quite a few cats hit around town and the county. Who knows, maybe Mt. Rainier is getting ready to blow (over due), or we are finally going to have our Cascadia fault rupture that is so long over-due as well (15+ years).
Anyhow, this is just a little blurb about my crappy morning. I have since then had my coffee, and coffee usually does make me feel better.

I captured this lovely photo the other morning while returning home. It is from a dump truck leaving a massive public works project for Sound Transit off of Pacific & 25th street. It was too good not to snap a pic of. I love it when people do things like that.

|Minion -- yes, that is her name -- at the backdoor grateful|
for the a warm day to pounce upon one of her brothers.
One of my projects is to take down my incomplete shed that I built several years ago and replace it with a bigger one. And actually complete it this time. I stopped working on it when I decided on taking a road trip with my uncle and just never returned back to it. I also have a kitchen remodel that needs to be finished up, however, I need to expand the permit for the bathroom as well since it has developed some serious issues in the last nine months. I really did not want to break into the bathroom remodel while I have a kitchen remaining unfinished, however, it cannot be avoided right now. Speaking of remodel, I also need to repair the shoddy electrical in this house. The previous remodel-er and owners really screwed up this house, but the house is over a hundred years old.
