Rain, Rain, Go Away

Do you ever have those spurts where your mojo goes out the window?  I'm in one now.  The kids got out of school on June 8th and I feel like this has been THE. WORST. SUMMER. EVER.  Since the last day of school, we have received in excess of 5 inches of rain!  It seems like it has been raining 4 out of 7 days each week!  Which means I am stuck inside with 3 kids (The Man's son is visiting for a month).

There were so many things I wanted to do this summer!  I wanted to find the almost 300 geocaches within 5 miles of my house, I wanted to take the kids to the local amusement park, I wanted to spend as many days as we could at the beach or the pool.  To date, we have found 5 geocaches near home and have done NONE of the other things!  In addition, the weather has prevented me from planting any annuals, and I didn't get any bulbs in for my beloved dahlias, which would be starting to bloom about now.  Instead, my flower bed is flourishing with weeds.


My mood is as soggy as my yard, but hopeful the sun will be coming out soon and drying it up.  This funk is making me not so fun and soon my beloved Great Dane may be the only one that can tolerate me.

Sounds...bleak. Blah. I actually would give anything for rain right now. I'm sick of being hot and sweaty. (Unless I'm between the sheets.) It's supposed to rain today and I have my fingers crossed. It rained on the 4th though, which really put a damper on the fireworks. The weather has a way of doing exactly the opposite of what you want it to.

And right now, my dog is my only friend as well. Guess I'll go to the garden and eat worms... :)

Hope the sun comes out tomorrow!

The rain makes it impossible to do much of anything. We haven't had a lot of it- but we've had unbearable heat. It's not like I can take the kids out in 105+.

I know, the rain WILL NOT END. It's like the flood, I feel like I need to build an ark or something :-)

Dee said...

I hope you get some sunshine too! I know exactly what you mean about being in a funk, that shit sucks!! Lol...

Erin said...

We're having a ton of rain here, too, but I like it sometimes b/c it cools things down. I loathe the hot hot hot of summer....

Nancy C said...

Oh, you don't even want to see my garden. What a disaster. All it needs is a toilet planter.

I'm so jealous of your rain, but I can see how it would put a cramp in the summer plans! I love geocaching, and what great skills to teach your kids! Hope it dries up soon :-)

We haven't had much rain here but it's been averaging about 105 with the heat index and I can't take the baby out to play when it's hot so we've been indoors a lot. Sucks butt!

You may be getting that wake up tweet tomorrow!

Rain sucks. I know, I am from Seattle. How about a trip to the library or some museums? And don't laugh, but a poker game with the kids could be fun :)

Tamara aka Cheapskate Mom said...

You keep sending all that crap my way. Knock it off! =)

June said...

I'm with Tamara... that shitty rain keeps coming from MN!
Hang tight Baby, the sun will come out soon.

At least I am not alone in my funk. We havent done anything fun either if that makes you feel better. Not even my dogs like me anymore. At least my cat still does. And Im sure its only cause she is just as bitchy as me.

Danielle said...

The sun will come out tomorrow, tomorrow, oh wait, that is just a song!
Hang in there girl.

The weather always effects my moods too. You'll snap out of it soon - the rain won't last forever!

Candice said...

I hate the blahs.

Oh, and what the heck is a geocache? I need to google apparently. ;)

Ashley @ Little Miss Momma said...

I'm with ya! this has been the coldest summer I can remember in a long time! certainly NOT beach weather! Turn that frown upside down, lol.

Thankfully, today is nice and the humidity left us. I can NOT stand the humidity.

Now I need to get outside soon!
