Wednesday was a rain day

Well, it rained a lot Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. 

We had decided to go up to the stores early and we just missed the 8am bus to Sunny Isle. It seems like the buses are on time or even a few minutes early for the 8am and 9:30am Christiansted Scalehouse stop. As the day wears on, the buses usually get later than their scheduled time, but WE still make a point to be on time as you never know...

As I said, we missed the 8am bus and finally at about 8:45 a "$2.50 bus" stopped for us. We were hungry and went to IHOP for breakfast.  Didn't I say that we'd never go there again??? Well, never again :)

After a big, no so great, service-lacking, and overpriced breakfast (how much for so-so coffee?) we went to K-Mart. Hurray, I remembered to buy cat food.  Something else I don't understand... The 3.5lb bag of Purina Cat Chow is $3.99 and the 7lb bag is almost $11.  Why?  I,  Ms Cheapseats, wasn't born yesterday so I picked up two 3.5lb bags :) And, Happy HAPPY, we found some suitable doublesided tape for our mast project.  The tape container must have arrived on island. SCORE! We then did some shopping at Cost-U-Less so we are pretty well set up to go all out on the mast building project without having to worry about food shopping.

It is now Thursday and it hasn't rained since yesterday morning... until about a half hour ago. So It Goes...
