Rainy days and Mondays.....

If rainy days and Mondays get me down, how does a rainy Monday make me feel?!?!?!  ;-)

Actually, I was thrilled to see that it was raining when I woke up this morning.  Our poor lawn is SO in need of rain, and it's been a long time since we've had any rain to speak of. 
Jim is taking the kids to Six Flags today, so for his sake - I hope it's just a passing thing.  We shall see.  Six Flags is quite far from our house, so there's no guarantee that it's even raining there.  For all we know, it could be a BEAUTIFUL day out that way.  Fingers crossed!!!

So, we had a great weekend. The weather was BEAUTIFUL and we had lots of fun.  Originally, we were supposed to have a BBQ on Saturday, but as it turned out, a lot of people couldn't make it that day, so we decided to postpone it until early September.  It's really too bad, because it was an absolutely P-E-R-F-E-C-T day for a BBQ/Pool Party - and I'm willing to bet that it will rain on the day that we end up actually having it.  Just sayin'.  :-)

We had dinner at the Grille on Friday night, to kick off Jim's vacation week, then we spent Saturday by the pool, went for a really long walk with the dog, went shopping, and then met up with K and B for dinner - which was delicious and VERY fun.  Yesterday, we went to my sister's house for a birthday bash to celebrate her son's birthday (he turned 11) - as well as my niece's birthdays.  All three of them (sisters) have birthdays in August.  The oldest and the youngest were both born on the 17th (6 years apart), and the middle girl was born on the 3rd.  It's crazy to see how grown up they are.  They'll be 16, 13, and 10....and they're all flying out tomorrow (the entire family) for a 12 day trip to Italy (Rome and Tuscany).....poor things.  ;-)

At this point, I'm counting down the days until I get my "mini-vacation".  Jim and I decided that we're not going to go to P-Town after all.  We were talking about it, and figured we might as well take advantage of our time off, and go somewhere over night.  Since we weren't going to find anything remotely decent and/or affordable in P-Town on such short notice, (especially since it's 'Carnival' week) we decided to book a room in Ogunquit for Thursday night.  We'll head up early on Thursday and spend the day there, do something fun at night and then take our time heading back on Friday.  I'm sure it'll be fun!!!

Well friends.....the time has come for me to get 'caffeinated' and get to work.

Hey -- thanks for your comment about Gilda Radner. I thnk we shared a mom! My mom came running into the living room once when I was playing the album, horrified by the lyrics to "If You Look Close" by Gilda's alter-ego Candy Slice. Remember that song?? hahahaha

Enjoy your trip to Maine. It's grey and raining this morning in Ptown but the latter part of this week is supposed to turn nice.
