In an effort to have some sort of break from my family (mainly, the kids and more pointedly, Sissy), I decided to do my grocery shopping on Sunday. All. By. Myself.
Ahhhh. I was able to get through with few hassles and even saw our own favorite cross dresser, Pat. I smiled at her, she smiled at me! Although my purple hair was no match for the attention SHE got! Dangit!
So, I got out of the store, only to be caught in a monsoon about halfway through the parking lot. There was so much thunder and lightening, I decided I'd be better off getting soaked than carrying a metal lightning rod (the umbrella), so I just did the best I could. We had some paper towels in the van, so I was able to dry off a bit and then head home.
I made the Evil Twin retrieve the groceries from the "Grocery Getter" van - the bags were all full of water! I had to change all the way down to my undergarments. That's how hard the rain was! And, it was raining sideways. I was glad I didn't have either of the children with me.
It was hilarious. When I got home, the Evil Twin said I looked like a drowned rat (thanks, honey!)
I haven't been out in that kind of rain in forever! I just kept hoping I wouldn't be struck by lightning! LOL.
On Saturday, we'd had a sunny and warm day, so after dinner, I let the kids change into their swim wear and spray each other with the garden hose. I don't think they've ever had as much fun together as that. I love when they get along so well.
When I shop on Sundays, I can take Mondays kind of laid back. I'll do some laundry. I think I'll re-purple my hair. Just kind of get some little things finished!
Happy Monday, hooligans!
