Friday night.

It's Friday night. I'm home "alone", which means with all three boys, and all the critters of course. Cody and Jamie settled a long time ago, but Micah has been crying for almost an hour now. Recently he has stopped his horrible night time meltdowns, but I guess he decided that seeing I am here by myself this would be a good time for him to lose it. I'm a little stressed as a result. I am waiting to watch a girl movie, but don't really want to start it until he is finished. He's quiet at the moment, but I don't think he's done yet. I'm telling you, this kid has endurance like I've never experienced.

Mike is at a work party celebrating his new position. I was supposed to be there, but we did not have anyone to look after the boys, so here I am. In truth, I could probably go to bed now and sleep all night, but I can't do it while Micah is still fussing, so I will attempt a girl movie and see how it goes.

Outside it is peaceful and green. It is supposed to rain tonight. I ran out about an hour ago to give the horses their evening pellets/grain and of course it began to rain when I went out. It was a soft rain, and oddly, I found it very comforting. Everything smelled so fresh and as I said, the leaves are getting beautiful and green. Rain is the last thing we need, as we are still flooded significantly in our basement, but the few drops that landed on me were not at all unwelcome.

Well, I'm still holding my breath a bit, but I think maybe Micah is done for good now. Phew. It is so draining listening to him cry for that long. Perhaps it is time to start my movie now. I hope everyone has a good long weekend. Ours will be busy, and it looks like it will also be a soggy one. I am praying it will not rain as much as they are saying. Goodnight.
