April Showers

If I thought yesterday was gloomy, today is definitely much worse! My boys will not be going outside today, unfortunately. We actually got a thunderstorm this morning, which was kind of exciting. Okay, maybe it would be better classified as thunder showers. Either way, it is very wet outside, and the wind is going to be crazy again today, plus more rain is on the way. I know this sounds silly, but it's the kind of day that makes me want to bake. I must have childhood memories of my mother baking during this type of weather or something. I will likely be making an apple crisp later on, but this morning I have been working on my homework. Thank goodness for the basement. Cody and Jamie are playing happily down there, and I just put Micah down for a nap. He didn't appreciate that much, but he seems to have settled.

Earlier this morning I was looking for my ipod and it was not where I had left it, on my bed. There were, however, three of Jamie's stuffed animals laying there conspicuously. I went to the top of the stairs and called Jamie. I asked him if he took my ipod. He said yes. I asked him where he put it. He said, "Hide-seek." I just sighed. I told him to get up here and show me where it was. He agreed and began plodding up the stairs happily babbling things about the ipod, and his game of "hide-seek". He got to the top of the stairs and walked down the hall, where he turned into his own bedroom, not mine. He walked over to Cody's bed, lifted the fitted sheet from the mattress, stuck his entire upper body inside and stuck his hand back out the bottom, holding my ipod. I told him never to do that again. I'm positive he will. I don't know what he thought he was going to do with it. He doesn't know how to use it, though he does know how to turn it on. I guess he just wanted to be cool like his brother, who does the same thing on a regular basis including the part where he hides under his fitted sheet with it.

Anyway, I better go. I just took a long break from this post and it is now 1:10 p.m. I have Jamie in bed, Micah on the loose, and a bored, whiney four year old hovering. Actually, he has quite whining and decided to play nicely now, so I must work on my homework. I'm on my own all evening again, so it looks like I won't be getting much homework done tonight. Some time I have to cook supper too. I might not make that apple crisp after all.
