April Showers

Chris was in a dodgeball tournament on Thursday night at school. Competitive dodgeball. Sounds like fun! They named their team the "Angry Pirates". They had shirts made for their team. Nicknames and numbers on the back. Well, they all had numbers, except my kid.

You have to understand my son to see the humor in it. I think it's great! He doesn't let it get him down!

Ice and sleet on April 7th? This is amazing. It is 31 degrees outside and raining and very slick. What the heck? This is Texas - not Minnesota.

When I was a little girl growing up in Pennsylvania, I can remember more than a few Easters that were too cold for that cute spring outfit that mom bought for me. I can even remember snow on Easter. But this is Texas, and Easter is usually very warm.

We bought a new car today. Braved the cold and rain. Brought it home and parked it in the garage. Not very nice to take the new car for a drive. Hopefully it won't be so bad tomorrow.

The boys were disappointed though - no Hemi. But still a gorgeous car.

Greg is in Houston this weekend instead of being at home. He's at a friend's house. They have tickets to go see Wicked. If I were 19, I'd rather spend the weekend with friends, too. We're going to have Easter dinner next weekend because he's coming home then. Hopefully the weather will be better!

I have such pain in my hands today. I am sure that I have arthritis in my thumbs. The damp, cold weather must be aggravating it. Thumbs are very painful today. Usually, they are only sore. Lots of sharp stabbing pain today.
