rain drop are hitting the roof

Rain drops are dripping on the kitchen floor. You could say life is like this storm. Sometimes it goes from bad to worse, but at least I've got a mop to clean up the dirt. This is where I say hallelujah, bang the drum , make a joyful noise, This is I halleluja 'cause I still aint berried in the cold hard ground.

I do not know who sings that song, but it popped in to my head when I wanted to start bitching about the roof in the sun room leaking. I guess there is no sense in complaining. Rusty said this summer we will have a working party. We need to tear the roof and replace it. I am just glad that it is only the sun room that leaks!

Oh well, it is raining here, and I could complain but we do need the rain so bring it on!

Marti asked me if Kailey lived with my mom. Kailey is now 11. For the first two years of her life she did live with my parents. Then her mom started keeping her two days a week. Now that she is in school, my mom only has four days a week. Then once summer comes it will be back to five days a week. Kailey has her own room and everything that she needs at my moms house.

Amber and I were talking about trip to Europe. Amber informed me that we can make the payments on line, and all we have to do is put it on our credit card. I asked her if she had a credit card, and she said no. well then you need to go to the store and get a money order and mail your payment in!

I missed Rusty last night. He did not get home until 9p.m. Tonight is going to be another late night for him, so I think I am going to do something special for the children. The children and I love fish, so I am going to cook up some shark, and I think I am going to make root beer floats. Yum.

I do not have that much planned for today. My day will be decided by the weather. If it were not so cold here I would go out and play in the rain, but it is to cold for that and the last thing I need is to sick again.

I think the girls are going to go play paint ball on Saturday, so I am trying to convince Rusty that we should go get a fishing permit and take Ryan fishing down on the pier. I have never fished in the ocean, so it could be kinds fun. Who knows maybe I could catch some more good fish.

When I was little my dad would take us fishing. I did not really enjoy it, because he would make us get up at the crack of dawn and we would freeze our asses off, only to catch some blue gills that were not even big enough to keep. LOL Rusty said that he can't remember his dad ever taking him fishing, so this will be a good opportunity for him and Ryan to make some memories.

Well the house needs to be cleaned up and there are some errands to run, so I better get my but in gear.

I like your attitude about the leaking roof. It makes life easier if we can think that way.
How do you cook shark? Gordon and I tried it once, I didn't know how to fix it and it was really tough and bland.
have a great day.

I hope the rain doesn't cause any damage and that you can get your roof fixed soon.
