Anna is staying with us for 2 weeks, as she is between leases. I hope the poor girl can stand it - we've already made her watch 2 Dr. Who episodes with us. Can you believe my Anna is 20? You remember, she used to be the teen girl who inspired this post (among others). Now she is a responsible young adult who works full time and lives on her own (with friends, of course). And Theo is off being a soldier, living in his own place and driving his own car and doing grown-up things like contributing to his retirement account. It seems like just yesterday I was waxing maudlin over his departure for college. Where did all that time go?
I think we need a little of this right now:
Man, that song gets me every time.
I had a falling down with an open bag of jelly beans I found in the vitamin cabinet today. No, I don't know WHY they were in the vitamin cabinet. Maybe they're healthy after all?
I'd like to say that it has been raining cats and dogs around here for 2 days, but that doesn't even come close to describing the situation. It's been raining tigers and wolves, maybe? There is a LOT of water out there - our back patio is completely pooled over, and the mattress that Anna has parked against the guest bedroom wall in the basement (see above re between leases) may be all that stands between her and the encroaching waters tonight.
But, hey, at least we aren't visiting our friends in Pensacola...
