It is raining! Woohoo! Yipee!! Thank you, God, for the rain. The southern part of this country is in the midst of a 100 year drought. We desperately need the rain for our water supply. This morning I woke up to the pitter-patter sound of rain on the rooftop and in the trees. It was such a glorious sound and one that has happened very rarely around her lately. According to the forecast, we should have some rain through Thursday. Since meteorologists never seem to get it exactly right, I will take what we can get and be happy with it.
We kind of have a rule in my car that BusyBoy and GigglyGirl cannot take balloons home from restaurants or playdates. They can play with them at the restaurant or playdate but not in the car. So, they have to release the balloons and watch them fly away. (We do this because they get in my way of seeing out the windows while driving and to avoid loud popping sounds that might startle any one of us.)
A few weeks ago, they had the opportunity to release balloons again. This time they had a long conversation with the balloons as they flew away:
“Bye Bye Balloons! See you later!”
“Have fun on your trip!”
“Have a good trip to the moon!”
“GigglyGirl, mine is not going to the moon. Mine is going to Mars!”
“Oh, have a good trip to Mars!”
“Bye Red and Blue Balloons. Take care of each other.”
A “Sisyphean Task” is one that is extremely laborious and that never ends.
Today, I did laundry ALL day long. Before going to bed tonight, there will still be more laundry to be done from the clothes we wore today. In fact, the day I die, I will leave behind dirty laundry.
Does it ever end?!
