Rained Upon

So it looks like we're in for another day of stormy weekend weather.  I keep seeing people's status updates on Facebook about enjoying the rainy day and getting things done in their house.  I don't understand.  Well, I understand the notion of it being nice to have some time inside and getting things done since a lot of summer is go, go, go but what I don't get is how that works for other families. For the most part, on days like yesterday and today, my kids get stir crazy.  Quickly.  Bored and stir crazy.  They'll watch TV for a little bit here and there and maybe one of them will entertain themselves for a bit, but for the most part they get bored and end up fighting.  Jay and I try to get a bunch of things done but they don't want to play along.

Last night we had Jason's sister and her husband over (Jesse & Kelly) and while it was a good evening, the kids were a bit bonkers.  Something about Kelly and Jesse gets them particularly keyed up and loud.  Add that to a semi-bored day and they were in rare form.

And so today we are trying to figure out what to do with ourselves.  I'm thinking school supply shopping and maybe going to a furniture store to look at desks for Bryce.  I want hot, sunny summer back - at least on the weekends.
