Rainy Saturdays


Nothing is more soothing than hearing the rain at night while lying in bed…well except when it is 3 in the morning and sleep seems impossible.  That is about the time when I realized that maybe I should start writing a blog…as my mind was racing with all sorts of topics…why I am wide awake for the third night in a row, family drama, friend drama, all the projects that we have to finish around the house… It was an endless list. By the time I finally dozed off, I think my mother-in-law was awake brewing her coffee and checking her email.  She is forever an early riser (before even the roosters rise)…I am sure it makes for a long yet productive day…that is, until about seven p.m. and eyelids start drooping and your bed is calling your name.

So I have been awake with my little ones and husband on this rainy Saturday for hours now.  What to do at the beach with thousands of other people looking to entertain themselves and family?  Not sure yet, since I am looking around at breakfast that needs to be cleaned up from earlier (and then starting lunch) and toys scattered everywhere.  Hopefully this rainy Saturday lends itself to being a “good karma” kind of day and we can balance productivity with a little fun thrown in…only the hours ahead will tell.

  1. Frazzled geeze that feel’s like the norm these day’s. We have the parking problem’s. But we also get the Spanish music all day long into the night. Then we get the college kids that think it’s cool to smoke pot and drink until 6 am. Then finally go to bed about 6:30am well guess what when I let my 3 dogs out I make sure they don’t bark to be respectful but I should think twice about that.


    • Don’t think twice, Michelle!! Send out the dogs!! One of our neighbors had enough last night…he was screaming at them from his yard/window to PLEASE go inside and quiet down…apparently the young idiots have also been urinating through the fence into his yard! I walked by THE party house on our street this morning, and some of the boys were waking up and had the nerve to say “Good morning, ladies”…I laughed. My response “Good? Not so much. TOO loud”… and as I walk by the house I look in the backyard to see a six foot beer contraption…going to be a long week.

    Well, over a year has passed since this first post and I am feeling about the same on this grey Friday morning, instead of a grey Saturday! I am proud of myself for writing almost sixty blogs, and dedicating my heart and soul to something outside of family. I feel a little weepy looking back at all of my mixed emotions, but survived them all…good karma still keeps me in check…I have no interest in meeting up with Bad Karma anytime soon. So on this gloomy day, I toast myself with a cold cup of coffee, and still being able to write,with my beautiful family standing by my side.
