Rainy days and Mondays always get me down...

...and what do you know, today is a rainy Monday. Sure to be fantastic.

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately, but I'm one woman and can only stretch so far. Between working extra, being a mommy to Luna when I'm not working, and trying to cook and clean and read and squeeze in every little thing when I'm not working as well, blogging has just not happened.

But, it's been a good week despite all the working.

Today however, I'm very cold and very tired and it's raining, which means that it will be a struggle every. single. time. Luna has to go out, because I do believe she hates the rain more than I do. At least it makes her all sleepy too - she's curled up in my lap right now, which is nice, because she doubles as a really great space heater. She's so warm.

In about half an hour, I'm going to be putting together some taco soup in the crock pot to have for dinner tonight, which will make me fairly elated considering the nasty weather today. I want to eat soup on days like this. (Also, rainy days make me want to eat donuts, which have become my ultimate comfort food. What a bad comfort food to want!)

I have so much that I need to do today, but I just can't get motivated. Particularly with cuteness of this caliber sitting in my lap...

What do you guys like to do on rainy nasty days?


  1. Mmmm ... I love rainy days! Especially when it's cold outside like this.

    I like a warm fire in the fireplace, cinnamon tea, and little Puff cat. Probably a good book, or reruns of The Office.

    Side note: have you ever made your own donuts? They are so much fun to make, and healthier than store-bought! It's so fun to fry them. Yummy!

  2. i do exactly that: make soup! i'm a bit of a downer on most rainy days, too. but i do believe it's overcomable!
    hot chocolate, brightly colored umbrellas, super warm and waterproof clothing, and of course some little warm critter to cheer you up! :)

  3. I want to just hang out at home and relax & catch up on everything computer. Ava wants to go outside and jump in puddles. We tend to do a little of both :)

  4. Wow! Look at how big Luna has grown as compared to her picture over on the right. She doesn't look like a baby anymore! Love you and can't wait to see you!
    Call me and let me know if you have a schedule for next week yet.

  5. That is one cute pup! I want one soon partially for the space heater effect! I'll probably never get anything done though!
