Our Yoshino Cherry tree- just like the ones in Washington DC, only smaller (not sure if I spelled it right- sorry)We are having so much rain it is ridicuous. It is really causing havoc for me. Seriously. I have so many errands to run and so many weeds to attend to, that I just cannot do because of the terrential downpours we are having, every, single, day. I took this picture of our cherry tree (we've only had it two years so it is a baby) on the one afternoon that we had sun in two weeks. We have had some crazy thunderstorms too, Tanner and Max (my supercute/annoying pug) cried all night long last night, I was really grumpy this morning after no sleep.
My things to do list is not getting taken care of because a lot of the things I want to do involve me running in and out of the car carrying things. I don't know about you but lugging boxes and stuff in the pouring rain is completely un-fun and downright frustrating. Today, I had to go to the post office and CVS and wouldn't you know it, Tanner took a big old stinky in CVS. I had to pick up Parker and drive 20 minutes home and there was no way in you-know-where that I was going to smell that the whole way home (pregnancy sniffer runs on supercharged for me every time!). So, I had to change him, in the pouring rain, in the CVS parking lot. That was it. I said, forget it. I am going home and I did (after I picked Parker up of course) and now I am just puttering around my house trying to decide what to tackle first. I tried to pull some weeds yesterday and my feet were sinking in the beds from the over-raining, hopefully not because I am so freakin' huge! So weeding won't get done for a couple days either and it really needs to be done. Don't you just hate it when your plans for the day are all wrecked. I was looking forward to a really productive day and hoping to cross lots off my list. Ho hum, that's life I guess.
I know I'll be praying for rain in a couple months when our yard is dying and I am too fat/pregnant/sweaty/uncomfortable to water things so remind me of this when that time comes. Thanks.
