It's Raining

It's rain, glorious rain! I even hear a little thunder. We have had really hot temps here in North Texas -- last night the weather man said we were above average and he didn't think we'd be back down to average for a while. Average being upper 90's...

It seems like things only go wrong when Johnny is unavailable. Really. When the kids were little they would only get sick on Sunday -- the only day that he absolutely could not help me. I remember one time when the older 2 (actually, we only had 2 kids at that time) had a stomach virus and so did I...on a Sunday. Josh didn't quite make it to the bathroom and got sick on the carpet. I was sick as a dog, crawling on the carpet, trying to help him and clean up...

Maybe that's TMI.

Anyway, on Monday I turned on the dishwasher and all seemed fine. I was upstairs talking to Jacob when I could hear water pouring out... of the DISHWASHER!! It was coming out of the little extra drainy thing that's next to the faucet on the edge of the sink and under the sink. I started grabbing towels and yelling for the kids to bring me more. I don't know anything about dishwashers...I could call a plumber but I've just been washing the dishes by hand instead. I know, I know... waaawaaa...

We've had a fun week at home so far. We're headed out to a museum today. We thought about the zoo but it's just too hot. We stayed up late playing rock band on Monday night. I finally made it through a song on the drums. Of course, Jacob was not only doing the singing part but he also had to do the foot pedal for the drums because I just can't do my hands and feet at the same time.

Ok, enough of the randomness.

Hope to have something of more substance to post at some point in the near future.

Serving the King,

Jeanette

I am so jelous of the rain. We keep getting a tease of it here but nothing really comes of it. You remember how that was.
