sick of the rain

Seriously, what is the deal with all of the rain???? I know that I shouldn't complain too much because there may be someone out there who has been praying for the rain, but too much of a good thing is no longer a good thing, right? I usually love Saturdays. We spend the day together as a family doing yard work, bike riding, playing at the park, anything and everything that involves being outdoors and being together. Today we are just stuck at home.

I did have a very successful trip to Goodwill this morning and got a cute maternity shirt (which was actually pretty amazing since apparently only three people donate maternity clothes to the Goodwill here) and I also got 16 books for $4!!! Sweet! I love getting children's books. When Cory's mom and I used to thrift store shop together in Fayetteville, we would literally walk in the doors of the store and race each other to the bookshelves to see who could find the best children's books. And just so you know, I don't settle for just any book. It has to be a really cute book in really good condition in order for me to buy it because I already have so many at home.

On to other news, last night I swear I heard a man say "ow" really loud in the middle of the night. This is what was running through my head; "oh no, there is a man in our house coming after the girls and he just tripped on something." I immediately woke Cory up. He grabbed his gun and started searching the house (I think this is like the 4th or 5th time since living here that I have frantically woke him up in the night to search the house b/c I saw or heard someone). I think I must be going crazy. Or maybe he is the one that is crazy b/c he was the one walking around the house with a gun (don't worry, it was unloaded). When he was out of town earlier this week, I swear a saw a little child standing beside my bed. When I sat up to look closer, he or she was gone. Wierd huh? Yep, I definitely think I'm going crazy (and now so do you).

And last but not least, there are officially 4 more days until fall begins! YEAH!!! I love the fall. It is definitely my favorite season ever!

I enjoy the fall with all of its beautiful colors and wonderful weather, but fall brings me dread for winter. I think my favorite season is spring because it means cold weather (and snow) is leaving and warm weather is coming!

Yay for Fall! But, we're not getting any of that rain, which is weird -- it will be in the forecast and then it doesn't come. Our fall may be too brief if that doesn't change. Hey, I don't think you're crazy. Something is going on, for sure, but what???? You're tuning into something or you're having very vivid dreams because of your pregnancy. Hmmmm.....interesting.

My husband had some similar experiences before our last child was born. We think she was just so anxious to come that she visited a few times!

It is raining like crazy here too! The road we live off is closed because in between our house and Jake's school, (in front of the farms fields) the road was flooded!

And the hearing voices and strange dreams-I understand! I wonder if the voice was in a dream and it was so real you woke up and thought it was! I have crazy dreams that I wake up and think are real all the time.

I laughed out loud picturing Cory with a gun searching your house! That is so funny!

Aw thanks Melissa for your awesome comments. I love the rain. I'm sure after a while though it would get tiring. I don't think you're going crazy. I have had my crazy moments when I swear I hear things like that and I haven't been pregnant! haha...
