Rain, rain go away

Many thanks to my friends who saw the weather forecast but didn’t mention it to me. Imagine my surprise when I awoke this a.m. to the drip-drip-drop of little raindrops falling. With my trusty iPad by my side, I looked at the island locale to which we’ll be traveling today and saw some ugly stuff on the radar. I feel like Sandy from Grease, lamenting about it raining on prom night.

After umpteen days with no rain, the heavens have opened and the deluge has come. My yard and flowers need it, as do the woodland creatures around here who’ve been spotted out in the open, foraging for a drink.

I too will be foraging for a drink if the sun doesn’t come out on SPI.

Well, at least I don’t have to worry about my precious little babies missing me. Gone are the days in which I had to prepare activities out the wazoo to keep them entertained in my absence. Payton went to bed last night without even saying good-bye, so funked-out was he over the baseball game rain-out last night. When I went up to tell him good-night and good-bye, as I will be gone this a.m. before he awakens, he said, “Have fun!” Macy at least hugged me, but there were no tears this time, and when I walked into my bathroom, I saw she’d been in there to  leave me a message: See Ya Later on my mirror. 

My kids rock!

    How cool is that! I sure wish we (fellow Duke MBA wives) had thought of that. We stay a little connected on FB and email but it’s not enough. I miss them all the time!

    Have a great trip!

  2. We got rain here as well. So overjoyed because we’ve had numerous wildfires not too far away.

    SPI! Haven’t been there in ages. Have a blast!

    For the uninitiated, what is SPI? I know the “I” stands for island. Have fun! And I’m so glad you don’t have to worry about the kids being entertained while you are gone. I remember those days. What a relief!

  4. SPI!!! Great place. Or at least I used to think so until Mr. Husband and I took leave of our senses and stayed for a litty bitty tropical disturbance that turned into Hurricane Dolly 😛

    How nice that your kids are old enough to wish you well on your trip. Leaving with no tears is such a huge step! I hope the sun comes out soon.
