It rained yesterday. Pretty much the whole day. It was disappointing because we were having friends over and had planned to do water activities in the backyard. However, I'm always happy when it rains because it means I don't have to water our grass and garden. Yeah!
The other good thing about rain, is we have to stay home, and when I stay home I sometimes get around to purging. I have a long list of places to clean out. The BIG ONE is the basement- but I haven't been brave enough to get there yet. The kids played this coin game from No time for flash cards for a good hour while I got to clear out the kids craft cabinet. That felt good.
Wanna hear an embarrassing story? Yesterday I had no piano lessons and Kirtis had to work late, so I planned an evening Target run for school supplies, then a chic-fil-a dinner for the kids. Long story short, I dented our van on the shopping cart corral as I pulled out of target. My friend Monica was coming out of Target and saw the whole thing happen. At first we saw no damage, then I see this soccer ball size dent! OOOPS! I felt so bad. So I called Kirtis crying and he told me not to worry about it. It's not like we're driving a lexus. Good point. Then I have blotchy eyes and the kids are begging to go in for dinner, so we do, even though my eyes haven't really recovered, and I see another friend and their family. So I have to explain why I have blotchy crying eyes. Oh well! I guess I'm glad to live in a place where you always run into people you know when you're shopping, but it would have been nice to have dented the car without anyone I know there to see it happen!
