- A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
Slow day, accomplished nothing. Of course it is not over yet. The dryer just stopped so that is something. I have about 5-6 more hours of being alone so I will get something done.
School starts next Friday here. Brook is all ready to go. I am a bit concerned though. They are not allowed to carry bookbags or backpacks. They will be switching classes and they do not have lockers. that means they will have top carry in their arms everything from class to class. I find that unreasonable. I believe I will just have to buy her a rather large pocketbook so she will have some way of carrying some of her things.
I have not seen much of Brook in the last 2 weeks. Johnny's family has been here from Texas and she has been staying up there. I feel like I have been shut out. They live half a mile away and I do not see them anymore. I spend every evening alone and in silence. Sometimes the only sound I hear is when someone signs in or out on AIM.
We are still in a drought here. It has been raining but the years of not enough rain has taken it toll. We are still in a Level 4 extreme drought in my part of Georgia. I am seeing some new growth on trees, something I have not seen in a few years. I noticed today that the local lake is rapidly going dry again . I hate to say iit but had hoped that the hurricane that hit Texas would have turned in the last bit and headed my way. It will take a tropical event to get some moisture back in our groundwater level.
Sorry friends, I am reading some but not commenting. Look at me as a lurker right now. I am laughing with you and crying with some.
