Just Call Me Soggy

I've lost track of how many days it has rained. I don't know who is more tired of the whole thing, me or the dogs. First all the pollen bursts forth which is because of the rain and the fact that we are still having drought problems. People are coughing and sneezing. Yellow dust is everywhere. Then the rain comes, sometimes for days at a time. Ever try to drive in Houston, Texas in the pouring rain? Not fun. Where we live is a mess because our neighbors made their own drive-way and every time it rains hard this turns into a lake. Daisy and Ginger don't like walking in the rain. Ginger refuses to do much of anything if it is raining. Daisy does some but hurries back in side.

It is good that we are getting this rain but there are times when it isn't all that fun. Now we are hearing that due to this rain the mosquitos will soon be out in force. Oh how fun. I'm glad I don't have to work in the rain. Taking dogs outside is enough work.

Another hazzard of the rain is the fact that the tv signal fails. Damn and I was watching "Independence Day" and ending up missing part of it because of the rain. At least I've seen it already a couple of times. One of these days I may have to learn to use the DVR.

Oh dear, now it's getting cloudy again. I saw sunshine a little while ago, In and out...just like little kids. "Mom, can we go outside? Nevermind it's raining again. Guess I might as well take my soggy shoes off...
