two by two

Geesh, with the rain, enough already.  I know we really needed it after weeks and weeks of nary a drop – but really.  We’re going on the 4th day AND night of rain.  It just rains all day and all night.  The last time it rained like this our living room nearly flooded, forcing Steve and I to go find a sandbagging location and load up some sandbags in the back of the jeep in an attempt to keep the water from our backyard making its way inside the house.  For whatever reason, our backyard (along with all the backyards on our side of the street) are sloped. 

So far so good this time around.  I think it was so dry before that a good portion of the water got immediately sucked up preventing the same amount of flooding.  And this isn’t a hurricane like before so it’s not quite as heavy of a rain.  We’ll be spending the beginning of our vacation digging a French drain back there to avoid the same problem this hurricane season. 

Lots to post – Abi’s birthday, new computer, upcoming vacation, Abi’s new sleep problem…must choose something other than sleeping when I have the chance!
