Gloomy Day......

Posted by: cheryl

Here in this part of the state, today was a pretty depressing day. It was either moderately raining or misting ALL day.......I hate days like that. I never even stepped outside today.
I guess I ought to be thankful becuase it is August in Okahoma and most people know that August is our harshest month of the summer. We have had a break in the weather and the highs have stayed below 80 for the past few days. During August our temperature is ususally 100 degrees or above.
The rain sure has made the grass green back up....
Not much to do today. Got a couple of letters from Ritzy. He actually wrote them on our anniversary. It is always so nice to get a letter from Hubby. I love to see his handwriting and know that he took the time to write me a note.
I am now watching his Green Bay Packers on ESPN play a pre-season game. If I stay up til it is over I will email him the score. You see, he grew up about 45 miles south of Green Bay, Wisconsin. He came to Oklahoma when he was about 22 years old. He will always be a Packer Fan even tho he has now spent most of his life in Oklahoma ;-)
Wisconsin is where we are headed as soon as he is released from this deployment. I am so looking forward to that trip...........
I am an Okie girl but I want to get out of here with Ritzy and just spend some time alone, away from everyone, including our own kids. I love them as much as a Mother could, but I want to get away with Ritzy and everything that reminds me of the past 12 months of this deployment!!!!!
I have 2 neices that could deliver babies while I am gone, but they will be here when we return....
Even tho we are staying with Ritzy's parents, I have said before it is like we are alone because they have their own schedule and we just come and go as we please.
Uh-oh I see the other team just scored again and Ritzy's Packers are trailing 20-10.
They better get with it!!
I am going to try to get to bed earlier tonite. I have been actually getting sleepier a lot earlier than I was a few weeks ago. I am thankful for that. It used to be 1 or 2 in the morning before I would even get sleepy.
Early in the morning, before sunrise is the best time to view the Perseid Meteor Shower. I usually go out and look, but it looks like it is going to be too cloudy this year...
Yea, the Packers scored a touchdown & extra point!!!!!!!!!! 20-17
I guess this is all I have for now, til tomorrow.........
