Someone Get the Ark out of Storage

. . . 'cause it's raining like nobody's business here!

Needless to say, the Christmas shopping trip was postponed. I may be desperate, but I'm not crazy. I am not taking this child out in the elements. There's still two weeks.

TWO WEEKS!?!?!?!

It's allright. I've got some time.

We did go run an errand this morning. Two, actually. We went to drop off some Christmas cards for DSAG, and then went to the grocery store. I am planning on starting some of my holiday baking today, of all days. Caroline's teachers are getting hot cocoa and homemade apple butter. There will be some sort of ornament, or Christmas decoration to go with them.

But, I'm also going to send a tray of cookies into her school on Monday. . .and to Mark's work. (Some of his colleagues read this -- so I'm setting myself up for some accountability!)

The rest of today holds Edison competing in the county-wide spelling bee in Sevierville tonight. have no idea how he's going to do. They gave him a list of words to study. And, he says that he's gone over them. We'll see.

But, all this talk of spelling bees cannot help but remind me of the HILARIOUS episode of "Frasier" where Frederick (Frasier's son) competes in the annual National Spelling Bee, which coincidentally, is being held in Seattle. Frasier accidentally disqualifies Frederick by mouthing the letters as Frederick spells out the winning word. The entire episode is hilarious, but the "Spellabration" is what they call the awards ceremony. Cracks me up. And yes. .. I am plotting and planning a scrapbook page with that title, based on tonight's festivities.

Oh, the other funny thing about tonight? Edison's teacher called the house last night, and told Mark that because they "value quiet" during the "bee," there would be an area for us to take Caroline in case she got fussy.

We're leaving her at home. No question.

So, that's it for this rainy, sloppy Thursday morning. Stay warm & dry. . .if you're in this area. If you are where it's snowing, stay safe. And if it's warm where you are, know that some of us are kinda jealous. . . just kinda.

Raining for two weeks? It could be snow. Too late to wish Edison luck so I hope he did well.
