Good Morning! C'mon in and sit a minute! This should be short and sweet this morning for a variety of reasons. It is 7:10 and I have yet to get my children out of bed. Not good when my plan for school is to be done by lunch. I am also, frankly, just completely exhausted. Puppies and allergies and life have run me ragged and I am not sure I can string together many sensible sentences...I know, your questioning my ability to do that even on a good day, but today is worse. REALLY!
It has actually been a relatively calm week around here. Tigerfan got home from his hunting trip (where it rained EVERYDAY and he only got to hunt 1 day) on Sunday night. He took off on Monday so we had a light school day and enjoyed his return. The rest of the week was just the usual. I am sure there were some great stories in there. I am sure Tigercub had some antics I should share with you and journal for all posterity. But I don't remember them. Mostly, I remember blowing my nose, chasing after a two year old with a paddle, and yelling...I mean declaring that "I DON'T WANT A PUPPY"!
Today, we have a wonderful weather advisory out. I am not sure whether to dread how my oldest will hang out in the bathroom under the stairs as soon as the clouds roll in or rejoice that we will get rain that will, hopefully, wash some of this blasted pollen away. I am also waiting for a call at any minute from Tigerfan. Last night, he (who is just as scared of storms as F.B.), declared we should just leave town until Saturday evening when the storms pass. Unfortunately, he couldn't find anywhere within a decent driving distance that wasn't also going to be under severe weather advisories. He informed me this morning we may go anyway...good times. If the men had to pack the clothes, prepare the kids and figure out what to do with the animals, they wouldn't be so willing to plan last minute ventures!
Okay, time to wrap up this whine fest. B.B. just came downstairs and is hanging over the toilet. Looks like we can add either a stomach bug, or more likely, sinus crud to our list of maladies today. Good times in the Tigerden! Hope you ladies have a lovely weekend. And if we aren't blown away, I look forward to visiting you!
