Welcome the Rain

I have recently discovered that though we yearn for sunny weather as winter draws to a close, we also need foul weather to balance out our lives. As a full-time mother, my children and I spend most of our time in our house - well, until the weather is nice, at which point, we spend most of our time outside of our house. Which is all good. Really. Not a problem. Well, it isn't a problem until the inside of the house has been so uninhabited as to be neglected.

So, today, we welcomed the rain. Well, okay, I welcomed the rain. The kids just had to deal with a day indoors. I shoveled off the master bath vanity, scrubbed the dickens out of that room in general, washed linens (remember, there is always laundry to do), emptied the top of the refrigerator, reorganized the stuff that lives on the kitchen counters (hello, file 13!), made homemade meatballs and spaghetti sauce for dinner, emptied and ran the dishwasher, and generally tidied up. I tidied so much that my inattentive hubby actually noticed when he came home!

Thank You, Lord, for a rainy day!

After dinner, the sun was out and the rain had stopped, so of course, we went outside. {smile}
