Cheerless gloom. Soggy, dark. Sinister winds.
I am describing both the weather and the moods of at least two of my boys. My own mood is deviating to the dark side. That is mostly a result of the horrid little creatures I’ve been dealing with all morning. More than I few times I’ve felt like sending myself to my room and crying loudly. (As they have been doing.)
Actually, things improved a lot after Ben went down for a nap! He’s up again, but seems in better spirits….. so far. The weather is worse. It’s one of those socked-in days where you wonder if the system has an edge or if it covers the entire globe. The ground can’t soak it up. The water is just sitting on top of the already sodden earth. This will be the true test of our thus-far dry basement.
