it's been an icky, rainy week

it's drizzly and in the 50s out there, which is much nicer than the drizzly, mid-40s day we had yesterday. what a bust may is turning out to be! there is some hint of better weather approaching in the 10 day forecast, but we'll see. sometimes it seems like they put nice weather in the extended forecast just to make people feel better. we're supposed to see some sun again on friday, so we'll see... every once in a while it gets brighter out there for a few minutes, so i know the sun still exists at least.

i won't go in to the effect this is having on my garden, but let's just say it's not good.

the girls are sick, too. nina was home yesterday and today (wednesday), which was especially disappointing because they were supposed to read with their 4th grade reading buddies, and she's been looking forward to that for a week. she has no school tomorrow or friday either, because they're screening the incoming kindergarten class. i'm not even sure if she'd be up for school tomorrow anyway. she's still miserable. it's just a head cold, but lots of sneezing, coughing, and tissues. she had a mild fever today too. maggie had it first and is mostly better, but her nose is still running. right now they're in fresh pjs after a nice bath, and sitting on the couch with pillows and blankets watching cartoons. and sniffling. nina took a nap today, partly because i gave her benadryl, but her poor nose was running, and her eyes were watering, she really needed it. hopefully the nap did her some good.

i'm trying to remember some funny tidbits but i can't right now. maybe later!

Awwww ... poor girls, poor you! I had hoped that the weather report I was seeing on TWC was not accurate, but obviously it is, unfortunately ... oh dear ... fingers crossed!
