But wait! What's this? The first day of summer and the sun called in sick? UNACCEPTABLE! Instead rain showed up...AGAIN.
Mother Nature, you are a mutha! I'm crying uncle, can't you hear me? We've had it, we're waving the white flag. We're singing songs pleaded for the sun to come out. Nothing is working.
June is almost over and we haven't once pulled out the sprinkler or the Slip and Slide. We haven't taken one walk to the park. The grass needs mowing twice a week and the rain hardly lets up long enough to get the job done. The cushions on the patio furniture will never dry out! We've had one fire in the pit and that night I didn't even have the ingredients on hand for smores.
The boys are staying with us for an extended time as their mama recovers from back surgery for a herniated disc and Mema is going bonkers. Although my home is well equipped with all the latest kid necessities, being forced to play indoors is not my thing. I hate having the TV on as much as I do and I'm running out of fun indoor activities.
What do you want from me? I didn't ask her to punish everybody! Do you think I like schlepping in the rain all day and all night? My name is Mema! M-E-M-A Mema and I'd like somebody to call me by my name! Oh, okay I took my life in my own hands, I made a mistake fine I'm sorry! I'll never do it again! I wanna wear my sandals... I wanna go out to lunch. I wanna be NORMAL again!
