Rainy Days and Mondays

Whenever I go to’s website, or Amazon’s, the page I see on my monitor shows items I should be interested in purchasing due to their relationship to items I’ve previously purchased. I just clicked on Amazon to look up some information on a book and it was covered with books about bipolarism. They must have me mistaken for someone else in my family. Or they know something I don’t know. I have, indeed, been off the antidepressants for over four months now and I feel fine. Not gloriously happy, but well enough to not feel the need to take meds anymore.

Last weekend, not this past weekend, but the one before, my mom and Auntie Linda and Roxy came for a visit. We had such a good time. The weather was beautiful and Roxy didn’t poop in my shoe this time and we found The Chocolate Factory and what else could we have wanted from a short weekend?

I am quite homesick. Not for Arkansas, but for a couple of really cute kids who live there and call me Aunt. Emily’s so busy that I only get to talk to her about every seven or eight days, and Reece is almost as busy. I can’t wait for Thanksgiving break. Those poor kids are going to have me hugging and kissing on them until it’s past the point of ridiculous.

It’s cold and rainy here and I’m tucked into my blanket, sipping coffee, and feeling ever so cozy. I want to stay this way forever.

How nice of Roxy to spare you the shoe-pooping!

I think that we all deserve a rainy day that we can spend on a couch, wrapped in a blanket. That sounds heavenly to me.

I really hate that Amazon does that. When I was pregnant with my second kid, I ordered a "Your Second Child" book, and after that, everytime I went on the site, it gave me "New Baby" books. Thing was, I didn't want anyone at work to know I was pregnant. And when I tried to let someone at Amazon know that this was really violating people's privacy.Their response was basically "really?"

I hate, hate, hate them. But sometimes I end up ordering stuff there anyway. Sigh....

Even better than a rainy day on the couch is a snowy day. I love to watch the snow while I'm curled up with the kids and kits. I just hope we get some this year!
