Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!!!

I bought discounted tickets to Idlewild towards the beginning of the summer. The only stipulation was that we had to go on a weekday before July 31st. Due to scheduling difficulties, Jim ended up taking a day off last Thursday. Keep in mind that he chose that day randomly, and weeks ago. After telling Dylan about going to Idewild all week, of course, it rained. We ended up going to the Children's Museum. He still had a blast, and we all loved watching him, but I was disappointed. After realizing July 31st was this Friday, Jim took Friday off, so we can try again. Monday and Tuesday were gorgeous days. I work Mondays and Tuesdays. Today it is pouring. That is fine with me. I just checked the forecast and guess what it says for Friday? Thundershowers!

Yesterday, when I took the girls to a playground, I thought, "Watch me run into my old employer and her daughter here". Ten minutes later, I heard her calling my name! Have you noticed that very often, you will think something totally random, and it will happen? Like when you think of a song, and it is the next song on the radio. Or, when you think of a movie you haven't seen in years, and it is playing on HBO that night? Or, you think of someone you haven't heard from in years, and receive an email from them? This happens to me A LOT. So, I've decided to make it work for me.

IT WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL DAY ON FRIDAY. IT WILL NOT RAIN. IT WILL NOT RAIN. IT WILL NOT RAIN.



(He was much too busy to look at the camera, or heaven forbid - SMILE! The one with him in the raincoat, where he is smiling, was after he fell, dancing, on the slippery floor. He fell, then laughed, at his klutzy self!)

I'll try and help: Beautiful day on Friday. Beautiful day on Friday. Beautiful day on Friday. Beautiful day on Friday.

I'm with you on the power of thought. Whenever I say something dumb Ronnie looks at me and says, "Now why in the world would you say that outloud and send it out into the universe??" It ALWAYS comes true.

You and I, we have super powers. We should learn to harness them and use them for good, not evil. (well, most of the time at least...gotta be a little bad)

I will add my thoughts for no rain on Friday! Your kid? Seriously too stinkin' cute!

You can't just say it. You must envision it. Picture the sun, the smiles, the wonderful day.

See, I don't do that stuff because I tell myself that if it is a crappy day weather wise then all that dreaming I did will seem pointless and sad.

Um...yeah, I'm a real pessimist. I bet you never noticed that or anything.

(Your kid is sooo cute!)

It can't rain on Friday. There is a law that says we get to play softball on Fridays. Period. No rain.

Dude, Dylan grew like 6 inches overnight. DANG!

What is this rain of which you speak? We're in our 3rd drought year.

I hope you were able to have your day once the rain cleared up.

Peanut and I watched your video. He danced slowly to the music and had me in tears... beautiful
