All becuase it rained.



Today it rained- more.
I have to admit, I kind of like it.
However, when I saw my poor yard filled with weeds, I felt defeated.
I have a lot of work to do.
I went outside and picked some of my tulips I spent days planting in the autumn.
They look great, and I cut a bunch, and they exploded in my kitchen. I was thrilled!

Speaking of rain, It was such a boring day for the little men in my life.
They mutilated Woody for a good hour. That got boring.
So they watched Tron and then tackled Jimmy and then each other until there were tears.
I was achy and tired.
I went for a small nap in my bed. I woke up a few hours later with the boys still wrestling.
They cry and fight then laugh and yell and they love it and then hate it.
I don't understand it. It's weird.


I made Claire play with my hair while I tried to figure out why I felt so crummy!
Then it donned on me; I hadn't taken my pills yet today.
I had rushed to get up this morning and get the children out the door for school early.
One thing led to another and I was so busy until it slowed down this afternoon.

What a bummer. I am still attached to those darn pills.
What I wouldn't give to not ever take one more pill again- ever.
But, I can't be too disappointed.
I am so blessed. I have a body, and the pills make this wonderful
body of mine push onward and upward.

Speaking of that {kind of},
Claire is now pondering the thoughts of shaving her legs.
I did that when I was in 8th grade- not eight years old.
I felt so shameful after I did it.
Not that my Mother was going to flip,
but because I felt that my childhood went down the drain with my hair.
I wasn't ready for it. I was still combing my doll's hair then.
She is not going to shave until she is at least a teenager.
That's the rule in my home, and since I am the Mother, I get to decide.
Amen.

Its coming! Plan on it!
