So What Do You Do When It Has Rained 9 Days Straight?

It has rained for the last nine days, and counting, days. Not just a afternoon shower, which is completely normal in Florida this time of year, but all day rain, with no sun to speak of. Grr it is awful. My dog has cabin fever, my kids have cabin fever, I have cabin fever, it is awful. The pool needs vacuuming, we are having a playgroup pool party Wednesday, and I can not even get in the pool to clean it. The way things are going it might rain. When I was a kid, a million years ago, we used to come home from school, and watch The Land of the Lost. Today, there is all day marathon of the original show. My husband is using Tivo to catch all the episodes. My son is watching it right now. So at least if it rains again, we will have something to do. Yesterday, we watched Hotel for Dogs. My kids, and husband thought it was great. I liked it but liked Beverly Hills Chihauha much better. My husband also rented Mall Cop which will probably get viewed tonight. Saturday, during the rain out, they watched Bedtime Stories. I listened to it, as I was working, but they loved it. I do not remember the last time we have stayed inside, and watched so much TV, and movies. I really need some sunshine. It is peeking out right now. I will keep my fingers crossed, I would even settle for a quick shower later. Below is the trailer for the new Land of the Lost movie. This is probably the summer movie we will go to see. I hope everyone has a safe, and happy Memorial Day.

If you're interested in Land of the Lost, you might want to visit my fan site with coverage of both versions of the TV series and the latest news on the upcoming movie.

I want to see that movie, Land of the Lost too. I think it looks funny. Hope they don't mess it up. I hate it when they do that. It's been raining here a lot too..though we did manage to get a couple of days of sunshine lately. It's raining again today. The fields are all pretty much flooded. We watched Tale of Desperaux (sp?) last night and we have the newest Indiana Jones to watch. We'll be in tonight too because Gabbi has a fever anyway. So it's a quiet memorial day for us. Have a good one! Hope you get some sunshine.

Though I love rain Melissa, but I do not know how I will fare if it rains straight also for 9 days, since I also love sunshine. And not seeing the sun for several days can really be gloomy, not just the physical surrounding, but with how our body responds to it as well.

Well we did finally get some sun, and got a whole bunch of stuff done. It did rain around 3, pretty much for the rest of the day.

i can't imagine having to put up with continuous rain showers. 9 days? i'll be dead,lol. if ever it happens here,I'll most likely store a lot of food in the fridge and gobble up goodies while watching movies on DVD. =)
