Getting Stormed Out

It has been raining so much here lately!! Tonight’s storm is so bad that I’m afraid to have anything major on right now. The Internet went out again, but with as bad as the storm is I’m not complaining about the Net.

The lighting is striking to close to home for my comfort. The thunder is literally bombing my cinder brick house. I don’t like thunder storms!!!

I had a wonderful day yesterday being able to hide in Del’s man cave and be productive because our Internet was working. The kids were so exhausted they were enjoying relaxing watching TV.

I didn’t realize how much I needed that me time until I noticed how much more patience I had today with the kids. Plus I stayed in a happy mood all day long. It was such a great day today my youngest cried about having to leave and spend the night at my in-laws. He was enjoying his day with me and his siblings.

The kids are also working on their summer review workbooks that my wonderful friend sent them. They are doing very well on them and making me proud. The boys school supplies have been coming in, and I’m getting prepared for the new school year. I’m eager for this year to see Delbert grow. Jimmy has reached the stage of finally being confident in his work. So this should be a fun year. At least I hope it is.

Are you ready for a new school year?
