I’m in rainy Pittsburgh which normally I don’t mind…I love Pittsburgh’s mostly dreary weather…I especially love running in the rain. I don’t know why, but I always have. Though, today, I shorted out my walkman…It was still good.
I love the rain about ninety percent of the time. But without a doubt in about mid Feb. when the rain is in the form of snow and we haven’t been out of the house in ages, I’ll want to toss myself off the Hulton bridge into the half frozen Allegheny River.
But the last few days have been nice not forcing everyone to get out of the house to do stuff when there’s so much crap for me to do in the house. After two years in our new house, I’m still organizing, but this time I really kicked ass in my closet and it feels great.
Remarkably Jake and Beth played both days without a beatdown (on each other) or temper tantrum or anything remotely horrifying. This is unusual…I’ll refer to these as my “old fashioned mother days,” when I didn’t worry about entertaining the kids, teaching them, or whether they’ve been stimulated enough…like the women who had to cook, clean, and do it again every three hours did many years ago. It’s amazing how much you can done when you ignore your children. Hehehehe…
Sorry for the directionless, humorless rambling.
