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.
