Rain, Rain, Go Away…

You know it’s rained a lot when…

    1. All the doors in the house have swollen and can’t shut properly (not just the front door).
    2. Your bathroom doors are moldy.
    3. The matting on your new family photo warps.
    4. You’re hanging up laundry in the garage to dry.
    5. The laundry hanging in the garage takes three days to dry, and even then isn’t dry.
    6. You’re contemplating hanging the laundry outside anyway. Just because.
    7. The kids are going nuts.
    8. Slugs are climbing up your bathroom wall.
    9. Mosquitos. Everywhere.
    10. When your children go out to play, their playmates are frogs. Large ones.

There. I came up with 10. 🙂

Not just my kids are nuts. The whole village. It doesn't look like many here, but I stopped counting after 20 kids in my yard.

    Callie does not look like she likes frogs. Which is worse the rain or the heat?
