Very busy at work (I leave 7am, home 5pm; that's normal). Have 2 volleyball games tomorrow night which is a lot of fun but as I haven't played for almost 20 years, it's been interesting getting back in the swing of things - but nice to be wanted by our other team as they're short a female (coed teams)! Otherwise hope to finally get to seed the lawn between bouts of rain (now that the tornado scare is at least temporarily over and things are settling back down at the airport, etc.). Don't know if we'll see M@ this weekend as finals start next Thursday - he came home Sunday for a fancy brunch (via Groupon!) so I told him that could 'count' if need be. Just wish it wasn't in the 40s overnight (10 degrees below normal)...more rain expected Thurs, Sat...

Cheryl, I'm sorry that your DS has been having tantrums. I bet those will change as 4 goes through the year. ;) I know that despite the fact that my DD raged quite a bit at age 4 (not typical of a 4 year old, but I attribute it to gluten sensitivity, as that changed once we removed the gluten from her diet), it still wasn't as bad with tantrums and whining as 3 was!

As for us this week, it's just a normal week for the most part. Not much special going on. :) I'm about ready to head to my basement to get everything up off the floor in case our basement decides it's going to leak with all this water. We have so much water up against our house, it's ridiculous. Although we have a sump pump, it's not really helping matters too much. It's keeping the water out of the basement. BUT, it discharges into a big lake of water in our back yard. So, basically all the water it's discharging is being put right back out to join the water that is up against our foundation. *sigh* I just hope we don't end up with major foundational issues because of all this rain!

How fun to get back into Volleyball Sue! Hopefully you get to see M@ again this weekend too.

Oh no! I hope you got everything off the floor in the basement and it didn't flood.

My basement is still dry at the moment and everything of importance (well...everything I want to sell at my garage sale...LOL!) is up off the floor. I still worry that we'll be out of the house and the sump pump will decide it doesn't want to work anymore and then we'll have a wet basement, but for now, it's keeping up. And, for now, it's not raining. It's getting cloudier as the day goes on, and I know we're supposed to get more rain later today, but for now, I'm hoping it just stays dry for a bit. I'm also worried because the way our house sits, the wind comes straight across the highway and into our back yard, where we have two HUGE trees behind our house...the ground is SO soft and I hope that we don't get any wind storms like we had a week or so ago - soft ground, big trees, wind heading in the direction of our house - not a good combo. But, I'm just going to keep praying for our safety and that our house and trees stay intact and where they are rooted. ;)

LOL Sue about the volleyball! Far too energetic for me, but a good thing to do. Volleyball isn't very popular over here.

Glad you survived the tornado scare
