I can almost hear the mold growing on my shoes

Remember when I vowed a few months ago that I would try to be more like this.



Well....last night...sometime between 1:00 a.m. and the time I woke up...Little Miss Sunshine? Yeah....she got her butt kicked to the curb by this little lovely.
We can blame it on the rain
(that hasn't seem to stop for very long over the past 5 days or so...ergo the light dusting of mold on pretty much every pair of shoes and various other items in the house).
We can blame it on the humidity that has made everything just kind of sticky.
(The hell it reeks on my hair is enough to make the strongest of women...and maybe even some men...cry.)

We can blame it on the excruciating headache that I woke up with and didn't get rid of until about noon...after large doses of meds.

We might even blame it on a particular 6-almost-7-year-old (who is going through some kind of "I am Koji, hear me roar" kind of stage, among other things) and his 11-year-old, oh so very patient (NOT) older brother who is dealing with his own as-yet-to-be-named angst.

Or how about the fact that the three of us are leaving in about 13 days and the idea of packing suitcases has just been a fleeting one.
Whatever the reason.....
.....it was not a very pretty day.
*************
"Are you talking to me?"



"Are you.....talking.....TO ME?"



Just for the record....thanks to some incredibly wonderful ladies this afternoon in a very successful "Circle of Friends Chatting Class", I felt much better!!
We had Poppy Seed Cake and Lemonade (Thanks again, Hula!!)
and
all was right with the world.

Have a great 4th of July weekend!!

If it's not raining tomorrow, we are possibly headed to the park near the military base over in Sasebo to join their annual blow out!! Good music, great food and fireworks....I'm praying for clear skies!!!

Well, Little Miss Sunshine AND Little Miss Grumpy still make me smile. I guess I'll keep you around;-)

Have a great week-end, Debbie...and just bring empty suitcases to the States!!

Mold on my shoes would make me very grumpy too. I hope your rain stops soon.
