Making the Best of Things

Sorry to keep being all ‘Suzie the Weather Floozie’ on you guys but it’s all I’ve got. Fay consumes us around these parts…

We spent our time next door at the cousins’ house today.

It rained cats and dogs all. day. long. Our sidewalks had vanished by early afternoon and water had risen halfway up the driveways. Big Red waded out into our newly formed river to give us some idea of the depth. What brave soul, that one.

Steph and I tried to make the best of things. We let the babies play in the rain with umbrellas.

We dressed up and harassed the kids.

We watched the rain.

Whatever we did, it sure worked. Cutie Pie fell asleep in his chicken nuggets at dinner and the other boys were in bed by 7 PM. A day of playing without naps makes for an early bedtime! Woo hoo!

Cousin B stole a few bites of Cutie Pie’s meal while he napped. You snooze, you lose!

It’s still raining. School is canceled again tomorrow. *sigh* Luckily the water has receded a bit…

    We happened to be in Florida for hurricane Charlie a few years back and whoa, that was certainly a crazy experience. We were there for a 2 week Disney vacation but of all the great things we did, Charlie was (almost) the most memorable! Our power went out, several trees were down in the parking lot, we couldn’t leave…it was crazy. My kids had fun though, running up and down the halls with all the other stir crazy vacationers…sorry your weather is so bad down there, we sure could use some of that rain! I’ll bet you are extra ready for your scrap weekend!

    First of all.. I almost chocked when I read “Suzie the weather floozie.”

    Then I laughed again when I saw how you dressed up to terrorize the kids. I’m glad I’m not the only one!!

    Hopefully the rain lets up soon!!

    As for the wader… didn’t you wish for just a fraction of a second that a shark would swim up and drag him under? Just for a second?

    having lived in Florida most of my life, these past few posts bring back memories. Now in the Carolinas we face record drought. Lakes are at the lowest point since the 1980’s. I thought we might get rain from Fay this week. Not looking good now.
