Okay....so it rained the whole Independence Day weekend. ...a real bummer for Kansans who haven't had a "rained out" Fourth in a long time. I can remember ones when there were storms here and there, but never a wash out.
So we all complained (me included). After I went to the window the 10th time to see if any sun was peeking through, I finally resolved myself to being indoors. We cancelled our plans to meet friends at the lake .
After that., a ray of sunshine ,in a different way , entered our home. My daughters and I played cards!!!! We watched TV together!! We made a pasta salad TOGETHER! We even went to a movie together. Basically, outside of Sunday evening , we were together. It turned out to be one of the best holiday weekends I have ever had.
I usually go back to work on the Monday after the Holiday Weekend feeling like I hardly spent time with my kids. Today I came to work thankful that the sun didn't shine.
