Money and Thunderstorms

We need a little of this in our part of the woods.

I’m still chipper!  I’ll say that first before it looks like I’m whining.

Today is rainy and thundering.  We SO need the rain, but I am quite sick of it.  Gray does absolutely nothing for me.  Also, I had to have, what I now believe is, my jinxed car repaired yesterday to the tune of over $1000!  GRRR.  I tried to look on the bright side and think it’s still cheaper replacing the stupid thing.  

Yesterday, Jes had grand plans of going in to school around mid-day, taking a test, going to class, taking another test after that class, etc.  She went as far as to get a shower, then couldn’t muster the energy, so she stayed home and continued to play catch-up with school work.

Today, we’re hoping for better things.  I think it’s a good sign that, at least, there are positive plans each day.  Things don’t always pan out, but it’s still looking up.  It’ll be an interesting balancing act today trying to pick up my (cursed) auto, go to the dentist, get Jes to school at some point, then pick her up, while trying to run a few errands.

Anyone have a little spare sunshine and color to send this way?

    Summer’s coming soon, sunshine always helps to chase the thunderstorms away.

      Amen to both of your statements! If I could just do the first one 100% of the time, I’d be good. We’re all works in progress, huh?

  2. Shoot! When I read the title of your post, I was hoping it was raining money for you! If only it worked that way.

    Hang in there – sunshine is just around the corner!

      HaHa! If only! I guess I should be thankful that I have a warm dry house to protect me from all of this rain. Plus, everything is most definitely turning green!

    Ah, the woes of car repairs. Believe me, I’ve been there, too. I drive a 16-year old VW. It’s a red convertible, and I still love it, but the repairs were crazy this past year. I keep telling myself it’s still less than paying a monthly car payment. Right??

    We’ve had alternating dark, rainy days, and nice springlike days here. I posted some cheery spring photos yesterday!

    Your positive attitude still shines through! Hope Jes was able to make it to school for a little bit.
