Rain sucks. I mean, I know it's good for the earth, farmers, and for having drinking water and stuff, but it could just rain at night, couldn't it? It does make for pretty pictures, like the ones I took this morning in my garden, but that doesn't help to keep my kids busy.
Since nothing of interest and nothing even remotely funny is going on, I'll just stick up this list of what kids have to say about love. Love's always a good subject, except if you ask my kids. Whenever they see people kissing each other on tv, they just screw up their noses and say, "Ew gross!". And don't even get them started on boys; according to my girls boys are the most annoying, disgusting creatures on the face of the planet (Carmen doesn't think so, she just doesn't want to admit it).
So, while you're reading this, I think I'll put my kids to work baking some cookies, that should keep them busy for oh, say, 15 minutes, until they get tired and leave me to clean up the mess.
