Talk about a dud [Aug. 5th, 2008|08:13 pm]

Eddie was a washout. Or not, depending on how you look at it. I'm not disappointed, mind you. I'm not surprised, either. On the plus side, we got a day of very nice, gentle, and much needed rain. On the minus side, Husband will have to mow the grass this weekend (for the second time this summer).

I had a decadent day of lounging about the house. I had french toast for breakfast, all by myself. I actually got to soak in a bath instead of rushing through ten minutes of frantic washing and hair rinsing. I drank two cups of Rainforest Blend coffee in the middle of the afternoon. I totally kicked Middle Daughter's butt playing chickenfeet. I watched way too much HGTV.

I also finished up the laundry that didn't get done last night, dusted the entire house (goodbye, sheetrock dust!), cleaned the bathroom, and even threw together a chickpea salad for lunch tomorrow.

I'll bet you're wondering about the sheetrock dust. Am I right? Oh...well...I'm going to talk about it anyway. I was dusting up all the sheetrock dust because the sheetrocking in the bathroom is done! Woot! Now the fun stuff can start. Only, I still haven't picked out any tile and can't decide exactly what I want. I really love cottagey wainscotingy bathrooms and think that style would work well with the house and the size of the bathroom, but then I also wanted something a little more sophisticated since the bedroom isn't exactly cottagey nor wainscotingy. Plus, I already bought a soap dish and toothbrush holder and got an awesome deal (75% off! Whoo Hoo!) but it seems a bit silly to decorate an entire bathroom off of $10 worth of accessories. I think I will just go to a tile store and see what grabs me. Hopefully it will be tile.

I am both surprised and disappointed. I don't know if I've ever been so disappointed by weather in my life.

Okay, I'm not really surprised, but while I thought I'd be disappointed, I never thought it would be to this magnitude.

It's hard not be disappointed when the weathermen have been talking it up for days and days. If it's any consolation, sitting through a hurricane is really rather boring.

I can't believe he has only mowed the grass once this summer!!! We mow once a week!!! I am really glad that Eddie was a washout...I am sure the rain was appreciated but I am glad that all is safe and sound and no major damage was done!!

We've had a very dry spring and summer - very unusual for us. At least the mosquitoes haven't been too bad.
