a new day
And here, after nearly a year in the garage, are our rain barrels! We needed longer tubing than what they came with so they were finally ready to go last night. And they filled up! It wasn't even raining that hard but they both filled up. Crazy. We want to line our house with them. :) kidding. Patrick put off putting these out because he didn't like the way they would look. He wanted to bury them, get a pump...all this crazy stuff. I sweetly told him last week that I was going to pay to have someone else install them and, lo and behold, here they are. And he loves them. He wanted me to go outside last night, in the dark, in the rain, to see if they were filling up. I did and they were and then we made sweet rain barrel love right on top of them. (I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. I am kidding, I hope you know. It was raining!!)

I realized last night, after stewing in my bedroom with a pile of oatmeal cookies and a scowl, that I have PMS. Oh, glory be! A reason! A reason for the gloom and doom besides the struggle of parenting 2 creepy children! And with just that simple realization, I was freed. Freed to scowl and grimace and grouch! Freed to eat oatmeal cookies and be sullen! At least for the rest of the evening. I am feeling better today, thank God.
