Completely Random, but Did You Really Expect Anything Else?

My allergies have kicked in, the sun seemed like it was here to stay...and this is where my dreams of a bright and sunny June have been crushed! It has been raining for days. Days! Every now and then the sun has come out to taunt me. What have I ever done to the sun, but love it? Nothing I tell you. I am not sure how to get back into its good graces, but I am searching for ways.

Oh, and who in their right mind turns on the air conditioner when its pouring rain outside?? The people I work for, that's who. Sometimes I wonder if they have lost their minds. I know that they are all originally from Oregon, but seriously?? I have had to resort to dressing for the office a/c and not for the actual weather outside. What exactly does that mean? Let me 'splain it to ya.

When I wake up in the morning, I look out the window. I then gage what I think the weather is going to be like for the day. If its dreary like it has been lately then I know its fairly safe to wear short sleeves to work and bring a sweater with me. When I look out the window and see my favorite sun shining in all its yellowy-orange beauty, I know the day is going to require me to wear long sleeves and a jacket. Yes, I said jacket. Does this seem wrong to anyone else? Who has to plan on wearing a jacket to work in June?!

I am having another slumber party tomorrow for my junior girls. Oh yesssss. It should be pretty fun. We are making it a game night, making s'mores and BBQ'ing hot dogs (unless it rains...again. I don't have a plan B. The weather will just have to cooperate). I am looking forward to it. This is the kick off for us for the "summer" (and I use that term VERY loosely). Its the first event we have planned since the two small groups combined (just for the summer). I will have to let you know how it all turns out!! :)

Oh, and I am also going to try to convince the hubs that we need to see The A Team. hehe! I loved the show (my Jr. girls are having a hard time believing that I was a tomboy when I was little...true story). I'll let you know how that ends up working out too! :)

I hope that you all are getting lots of sunshine. :D Any fun plans for this weekend?

I spent the first 24 years of my life on the central coast of Cali, then a year in Portland, and now I'm back home in CA. I totally understand the weather confusion!

P.S. There's an award for you on my blog. :)

It's been hot here, like ninety degree humid and hot. Until yesterday it hadn't rained at all...It looks like this is going to be a tough, tough summer.

I'm definitely missing something about jr. girls...and will have to search your blog to see what I can find. I feel like I tuned in to the middle of season two without having seen season one...
