It's Raining!

I am so, completely, ecstatic. It's RAINING! I have lived here four months now and I think it's rained once. I am not joking. It's so dry. This morning when I left for work, this was pretty much me:

When I was a kid, we used to play in the rain. Mama would let us run around (when there was no lightening, of course) in the yard and wash our hair in the water pouring off the roof. Or we would go for walks in the rain and splash in puddles. If there was thunder and lightening, we would drag a mattress onto our front porch and all cuddle together in blankets and watch the storm. Once, Katie and I went horseback riding in the rain just for fun. Sleeping when it rains is blissful.

I just love the rain.

Don't get me wrong- I don't like rain constantly. It can get depressing. But it's wonderful how everything is washed clean and smells fresh after it rains, like the whole world is cleansed.

Let the rain kiss you.  Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.  Let the rain sing you a lullaby.  ~Langston Hughes

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
