rainy days and mondays (on tuesday)


The fact that I wrote this Monday post on Tuesday should let you know how the past 24 hours have gone.  The day started with 2.5 inches of rain in an HOUR!  We don't really have a stream running through our front yard on a normal day.  But this day would not prove to be normal.  My sister came into town with her babe (a very good thing).  A little chaos.  A little homemade ice cream.  Pretty good.  Oh except Parker had a filling yesterday and had a reaction to the sedation they gave him.  Threw up in the dentist chair and everything.  He cried all evening and then got a random burst of energy which landed his head square on the corner of the desk.  He say that it was the baddest day EVER! 


Today we got the news that my dear hubby will be making a move back to shift work.  This is NOT my favorite news.  It means me having to take 99% of the parenting duties back.  We did this for 7 years.  We can do it again.  Just not looking forward to it.  But there has to be a sunset at the end of all of this right?  Like the sunset after the storm yesterday.  I could use your prayers and support right now.  Sigh.  Here we go again.

I feel for you. My husband worked shift work for years. It is tough.

Oh, yuck. I hope things turn out better. And soon!

(Tell Parker that he is not alone in barfing in the dental chair. One of my boys did that the last time they tried to give him a fluoride treatment. My friend, the hygenist, said it's very common, too.)

I see I need to start checking my Blog Kansas widget for newcomers. Always glad to make a new Kansas connection! Yea, those rotating shifts bite. I don't think they're healthy for the people that are on them either. What is the reasoning behind them anyway? Looking at the ticker going across my TV screen, more storms coming through!

Sorry to hear about your husband's job. Prayers for you.
