Singing in the Rain

What else can we do? All it seems to do lately is rain. It works for me today. I had a little too much sun yesterday and anymore would surely result in a painful burn. This morning I dropped youngest at the bus and oldest and I went shopping. I returned the shirts that I bought for our family pictures and found ones that we liked better. Oldest didn't really need anything except sneakers but with clearance racks and an additional 30% off she made out pretty good. We also hit the book store as we were waiting for Bob's Store to open to buy jeans for son. As we skipped breakfast I bought us iced coffees and muffins at the coffee bar. Oldest also left with a new book - Resurrection - the latest in the series she is reading. Then we actually found jeans to fit son. The manufacturers assume if you have a 34 length that you are fat. But, Levi's actually had a 30" waist with a 34" length. Guess who he takes after? (Hubby is 6'7") Any way I bought one pair. After seeing that they fit well we will order him a few more pairs. Hubby gets his on line pretty cheap which is good since he needs a 38" length.
I was home in time to pick youngest up from the bus. After lunch the kids and I headed to the library. Youngest is on a military kick and traded in her book on Navy Seals for a one on Green Berets. Everyone was happy with books in hand. Son even managed to find one.
Then it was home to make a batch of coconut ice cream. That was served on top of the blond brownies I made last night. We did have dinner first - a chicken alfredo lasagna.
Now Hubby is off to a fire department drill. It is a mock tragedy involving a bus. Oldest and Son have gone along to be victims. And tomorrow starts hubby's three days off and my three days of work.
