rain rain go away.....

i just can't be happy can i? when it doesn't rain for weeks and we are in a drought all i can think about is rain. now that we have soooo much (thanks to Fay) i can't wait for it to stop. yesterday we got over 6" of rain. and the thunder this morning woke me up. it sounded like a giant walking across the yard. super loud. and it's supposed to do it some more today. *sigh* my yard looks like a swimming pool. now i'm going to have to mow again. i was hoping i was done with that for the year!

this is the last week before school starts for us. and it's been pretty boring. on monday my friend deborah and i took the kids for a ride on our new light rail. it's not close so we haven't done it before. but it takes you downtown right to the new children's library, Imaginon.
i enjoyed it but the older boys said they were bored. of course they were. they're teenagers and need to totally entertained all the time. the little kids really enjoyed themselves. the only problem we had were the high school kids that got on after us and were rude, crude and vulgar. i wanted to turn around and say "do you kiss your momma with that mouth?" but i was afraid of getting hurt. :)

i highlighted my hair last night. i don't know why i didn't go into hairdressing after high school. i'm very good at it! (if i do say so myself)

i rented What Happens in Vegas last night. i have seen it before but it was so funny. and hubby laughed and laughed. and we got Island of Nim. very cute. jodi foster did a great job. very neurotic.

i am hoping to order monkey's school stuff this week. if it would stop raining and my hubby could go to work we would have the money to do that!!!!!!!!

i've been setting up field trips for us to take. we have tickets to see some plays at the Children's Theater. peter pan, a Christmas story and frog and toad. monkey will love them. and we are going apple/pumpkin picking. and another zoo day. we are going to have so much fun!

and have i mentioned that i'm addicted to Facebook? thanks sis. (note the sarcasm) i love flair! if you have a facebook account add me.

that's the thing with rain; when you don't have it, you desperately want it. when you finally get it, all you can think about is 'when is it going to stop'...just be glad you weren't in florida. i'm sure it'll pass soon.

the light rail looks awesome! we're definitely checking that out when i come in Oct.

i wanna go on field trips with you! i'd love to see frog and toad! :)

I'm on Facebook, too. But I'm just not feeling the love yet! What's your secret? ;)

6 inches of rain in a day, sheesh! I'd be wishing it away, too!

Cool library! Your monkey plans sound fabulous! I may have to check out facebook. I'll let you know when I do.

I dare not look into facebook. I spend enough time checking blogger.

Are you homeschooling this year?

I was with you on the light rail. Oh yeah tell C I can play the trees by Rush on the drums now. So we could try to cover it together.

I have the oak meadow first grade syllabus, teacher's manuals and a couple of other curriculum books -- I was going to post on e-bay or craig's list, but would cut you a deal just to be rid of it -- if you are interested.
Even though it's first grade, I used it for Winnie's kindergarten because the Oak Meadow style -- she could handle the first grade (fun stuff) and the kindergarten curriculum didn't seem like it would hold her.

Anyway, let me know if you like the Oak Meadow -- because I keep forgetting to post it.

BTW -- being the ebay queen you are, you can turn around and get your money back next fall :o).
