It has been raining here for the last six days.I am amazed that the kids are handling it better than I am. Liam, who loves outside, has accepted staying in the house and tormenting the dog and throwing random items inthe bath tub. I did allow him to do something I usually don't so I could get the living room picked up.
I really don't want him playing in the picture window but how can you say no to that face?
I finally decided to suck it up and get a smartphone. Liam has been using our home computer as a stepstool so I need to put it back int he basement before he breaks it and I lose all of my pictures and lesson plans (again). Since I don't use the computer for much more than email checking and a little surfing, the smartphone will let me keep the computer downstairs but not have to be disconnected. It will be nice to have over hte summer when we are out and about. I wasted my free period playing with it and know that I have barely figured it out. The part that got to me was when the sales girl told me I'd lose my voicemails. I had two messages from my mom saved. I have only listened to them once in the past eleven months, but it was comforting to know they were there if I needed them. I had to listen to the entire message to get to the option to forward them to Mike's phone. It is weird that I am usually so strong about this but I stood there with tears running down my face in the middle of the Verizon store.
I had some technical difficulties trying to post this picture from Mystic on Mother's Day. It is such a favorite of mine.
