Rainy days are here again! The clouds and gail force winds came in on Tuesday and the rain started yesterday and is expected until Sunday. Yuck. I know we need some of it, but can't we just spread it out some? Hopefully the rain will stop enough for the kids to get to go outside and play in the puddles. We have a pretty poor drainage system on our street which makes for great puddle playing (not actually in the street but by the sidewalk/curb). They love it and sometimes it is as deep as 1 1/2 feet! Nearly a pool.
I got to see the boys this morning before I left. They both woke up early and my husband would not let me go to work until the bad storm went through. Nice thought from him, but now I have to stay later this afternoon.. unless I skip out early.
I figured out that the swelling in my feet/legs/ankles is from sitting on my rear end all day long at work. I do much better on the weekend when I am up and moving around. Last night they did not even look like my feet. I got lucky and my husband rubbed them for me. What is more perfect than watching Lost and having your feet rubbed?!
We go to the doctor tomorrow afternoon and she and I will hash out a date. I don't know why I am having such a hard time picking a date. It just feels so unnatural to me. My brain is fighting with itself over it! My parents are coming in this weekend and I plan on putting them to work. My husband had a brain spasm Tuesday when he was doing touch up painting around the house (many perks of having a husband in job transition) and he painted the kitchen cabinets the creamy yellow color of the monkeys' bedroom ceiling!! I don't think it would look too bad if the walls were not already a bright yellow. So I have to get my mom to help me pick a new wall color since that will be a lot easier to paint over! And we will probably have to replace the white knobs. Silly man. I also want my dad to start up our garden, but if it is raining this may not be accomplished.
Another busy weekend, but I am looking forward to it!
PS. Lori had her beautiful baby girl Isabella this week.. go check her out.
