A rainy day

Yesterday was a strange day. I felt like my brain was frozen the entire day. Ever have days like that? I tried for hours to get out the door to the grocery store....only to realize that by that time, it was lunch-time, and the kids were missing their morning naps! NOT a good time to try to get groceries! I didn't end up making it to the store until Joel got home, and that was like my only accomplishment for the entire day!

Fortunately, today is better :) It is rainy outside. I know it sounds strange, but I love rainy days! You don't have to feel guilty staying cozy inside all day and baking treats :) ( Well, that is, if you don't have to head out the door to work....which, I am fortunate that my 'work' is centered around these two little people running around my house)

My washer is humming, meaning that I've actually started some laundry.

My dinner is waiting in the fridge, ready to be put into the oven later.

I even managed to clean all of the junk out of our car this morning :)

Oh, and I think I may have figured out what is wrong with my ears! I did some extensive research, and I'm fairly certain that all that is wrong is a clogged Eustachian tube. All of my causes/symptoms fit this description perfectly. The specialist I recently went to had mentioned this as a possibility, but was unsure what to do about it. Well, if that is really what is wrong, the good news is that either 1.) It will clear up on it's own over time, or, 2.) There are different procedures that doctors can do to correct the problem. The internet says that it generally happens after an ear infection or bad head cold--which is right around the time I started to notice it. So, all in all, if this is really what's wrong with my ears---this is great news!!!! It could mean that the hearing loss I've suffered is only temporary, which would be a HUGE answer to my prayers! Please keep praying for me so I will know what steps to take next.

So, that has been my day so far. I am so glad that after weird days like yesterday, God gives us days to rejoice in!

Oh your day sounds absolutely divine! I'm SO looking forward to those days with my children. (I'm still praying that God will answer my prayer for part-time work!) =) You have been busy this morning!

OOOOOOOOOOOOboy! You're using your rainy day to bake treats?! It's going to be a good day! :) One more thing to make me look forward to getting home (as if I needed anything else).

Yummy! Rainy days are like that for me, too - I love them!

I'm sorry - you say your specialist didn't know what to do about clogged tubes???? Well, anyway, I really hope and pray that you are right - what an amazing blessing that would be! :)

I too love rainy days. Ever since I had all my heart operations. I wake up to see a beautiful rainy day and thank God for all that he has brought me through. Praise his name for he is greatly to be praised. There is nothing to compare with smelling baked goods on a rainy day. Memaw Osina
