Rain Clouds


They said on the news tonight that a band from Tropical Storm Isaac broke off and decided to stick around South Florida. It you watch the radar you can see it happening. The storms heads off into the gulf and this giant band of rain stays behind.

It is like a giant rain cloud decided to stay right above us. So far we’ve gotten about 10 inches of rain. School was canceled today. The Irishman had to work, but the kids and I were off. I am back in school tomorrow but the day care is closed so Morgan is staying home with them.

(Side note – I took Caitlin to have a professional try to fix my attempt to trim her bangs. They are still super short, but it is an improvement!)


I had a cold last week that I have passed onto my family. Caitlin is doing okay, but the guys are pretty miserable.


Sean has it the worst of all. I can hear him now on the baby monitor. He is coughing and crying out in his sleep.  I called the doctor on-call in the middle of the storm and got some medicine. I ventured out with two kids in the pouring rain today to have them listen to his chest and was told it sounds worse than it is. The poor kid is miserable.

(Side note – check out those lashes!)
The Irishman put his PJs on as soon as he got home from work. I am praying that he feels better in the morning. It is going to be a long, hard day for Mr. Mom otherwise!


Back to school is hard at the best of times. Add a tropical storm and two sick kids and it is pretty miserable.


I wish I could think of something fun and upbeat to post, but it wasn’t that kind of day. It was the kind of day that eats you up, chews you out, and finds out eating soup for dinner while writing lesson plans at 10pm. It was the kind of day where there was literally a giant cloud above us. It happens. These things pass. It could be better. It could be worse!

At least there is a (non-tropical) long weekend coming up!

I'm so sorry, Jenny! :( Sorry about all the rain, all of the sick germs, and sorry you had to go back to school and leave you babies. If I was a lottery winner i'd send you half of it so we could both stay home with our babies. Unfortunately, the only thing I can send you is a back to school, hope everyone feels better, happy belated birthday, we are thinking of allof you and praying for you box. You should see it soon.
