The weekend was beautiful and spring-like, so I actually washed the Explorer, which hadn’t been washed in who knows how long. I should have known, nothing can bring on rain faster than me washing a car. Monday was warm and humid; I felt like I was back in Houston. And the storms hit early Tuesday morning. Unfortunately Tuesday is also our garbage pick-up day, so I woke up just before 4 AM, heard the wind, and feared the worst – garbage all over the yard. I couldn’t go back to sleep thinking about it, so I had to get up and check (Bill was out of town). Luckily, the wind had just blown the lids open, so I went outside and closed them, since it was raining a little. We got some thunder and lightning after that, but nothing more serious. I was glad I sent the kids’ jackets to daycare, because the temperature started falling in the afternoon, and it was in the 4os and really windy when I picked them up. It was near freezing this morning.
Hannah likes to bring the newspaper in and mentioned getting it this morning, so I told her she could, but she needed to hurry, because it was cold. When we got to daycare, she went in ahead of me, and when Mrs. H. made the comment to her that it was cold, Hannah said “I know. Mama made me get the paper this morning.”
