It doesn't look like it's going to last long, but anything is better than nothing at this point. It could rain like this for a week, and I don't think that anyone around here would really complain.
It's even coming down enough that it's dripping off of my (very ugly and half-rotted) garage roof.
Other than that, it's been a normal day around here. Alex's father picked him up (early) and is keeping him overnight, and the other kids and I hung out around the house while I nursed a wicked headache and tried to get some stuff done. We did make a run to the library, so they've been enthralled with their new books and movies all evening, which has led to much peace and happiness.
