What an adventure!
I am not sure if it is a curse or a blessing yet but, I no longer have a car. I am okay with that...I think! The funny thing is I have lived in Arizona for 11 years and had never been on a bus! So yesterday I took the bus... TWICE! It was fun!
I went to an appointment and got there EARLY! That is not very usual for me I am either on time or a few minutes late. It was fun riding the bus. There is life in the desert! There were so many people on the bus.. on off on off. Cool!
Then later in the afternoon when my daughter was here, I said "hmm, I need some groceries" She said lets go.. "really?" "Yep" so off we went again... On the BUS!! Now I must say when I went out earlier in the day it was 104 degrees. At this point the clouds had rolled in and a nice breeze and it dropped to about 85-90. Not bad.
When we reached the supermarket, the clouds had thickened, the wind picked up and there was a smell of...you guessed it RAIN in the air!
Monsoons here in Arizona are either 5 minutes and gone or ALL night. Well this one decided to be an all nighter! We waited out side the store for the rain to let up. And waited..and waited.. well "we will have to make a run for it"... I DO NOT RUN! So I walked with the groceries in the cart and Cherise ran! We made it to the bus stop and waited..and waited.. FINALLY the bus came. We were soaked to the core. We giggled and laughed like school girls. It was an amazing ADVENTURE and I cant wait to have another!
I think I will like not having a car!
