Rainy day

Excuse me while I whine for a few minutes...

It's been raining on and off all day. My mood this week fits in well with the weather. Bummed. Not for any one thing in particular, just a variety of issues that are piling up and I have no desire to take care of them. Lazy. Tired. I have eczema on my fingers that has really flared up at the moment. My fingertips are all scaled over and cracking. Painful to type, to wash hands or dishes, to cook, to diaper, to wash little childrens' hair. I strained my back a couple nights ago. I don't really care for the fall season...I try to make autumn leaves and pumpkins cheerful, but to me they're really not. Orange and brown and green...yuck. I love the colorful flowers of springtime, the beach in summer. The Christmas lights are on the horizon but still a little too far away to feel "soon". Every outing with the kids seems insurmountable. Every lesson takes forever.

I'm sure tomorrow will be better. But as for today, I'm ready for Steven to walk through the door, have our yummy dinner of King Ranch Chicken, maybe a Godfather over to visit, and an early bedtime for all of us.

I found the girls doing this earlier (how-to-draw books from Chick-fil-a). I think it counts as art for today! That and the letter stamps that are all over their bodies and their clothing and the table...


He wants the computer mouse when it's in reach. This is his "I'm getting into something I'm not supposed to" grin.


Smothered in love


A dirty diaper calls. And a hidden phone must be found...

Good Morning Sissy!

Glad the kids are liking the stamp sets. Maybe we can do some art projects with them. I've got lots of new ideas with the scallop cutter I got last night and some other sizes on the way should be fun!
SJ looks like he's grown since Monday!

Love, MOM

Whine away! We all have days where you just have to let it all out!

Hang in there! We all know those days. I tend to get down on the rainy ones too. I try to look on the bright side and find fun indoor activities, but I just love to be outside and am so energized by sunshine!!!

Awwww Blair, I'm sorry this was a glum day. I'm glad you shared so truthfully - and I hope sunnier moments are yours today!
