September has been a wash out. The entire month so far has been nothing but rain, rain and more freakin’ rain. It is so depressing. The sky is always gray, the clouds are always looming. The weather temperature has been low enough to actually be able to go outside! But noooo…. it’s raining. Now we are all stuck inside watching hours and hours and more hours of college and Pro football. And then the cable often flakes out. Why? Because it’s raining. Ok, so as long as you have to go work all day, it can rain. No big deal. But then morning comes around and you have absolutely no ambition to get out of bed. Your hair will just frizz out, your best clothes and shoes will get all wet and ruined anyway, why bother getting out of bed? It’s raining. Then I was told a story of a very prim and proper Princess who does not like to get dirty and rarely plays out of doors. Her mommy and daddy had gotten tickets to an outdoors fall festival and cancelled all other plans to be able to take the Princess. They had planned this family event for a long time. The rain did not let up during the festival, but the Princess was bound and determined to go and have fun with both Mommy and Daddy. So even though she was drenched to the bone, she still ate that wonderful fair food, built a birdhouse and won a goldfish. If the Princess can embrace the incessant rain, so can I. We do have a wedding to attend, at the beach, outside, this weekend. We’ll try to be troopers. I guess the rain isn’t so bad, but I am getting concerned that we may have to pull the boat out of storage soon and not for the usual reasons.
