My last day of sanity?
Let me explain the title. We had a exceptionally warn and pleasant summer and fall this year. Everyday was spent enjoying the sunshine and warm evenings. And if the kids were unhappy in the house I just sent them outside to play and work out the wiggles. Well, gone are the days of warm weather, sun and my sanity. Rain has returned to Oregon in full force. For the past three days there has not been a break in the rain. The kids are done with school around noon and the questioning begins. What can we do? Over and over they ask. Go read a book, play with legos, play your leapster, take a nap, I answer them over and over. Oh how I wish I could say GO OUT AND PLAY. The trampoline is soaked, the tree house is leaking, the bikes are in storage and the hammock is put away. This is the time of year I hate Oregon. But only for a season. Soon we will settle into the change and before we know it the trees will be budding with the first signs of spring. But right now it feels like I will not regain my sanity.
