Hunter in the Rain

Ronnie & Don came over the other night, and Don was kind enough to get our TV goin. The next day Darius and Hunter were watching Popeye cartoons, when Hunter blurts out PopEye! Too cute.

Had a really big windstorm yesterday, that took out a bunch of branches in front of our house, and the surrounding neighbors lost halves of trees instead of branches, luckily no one was hurt round here. We didn't lose power at all but it did flicker a whole lot, and Chance says they lost power at work, and he ended up doing all the calculations by hand with a calculator instead of using the cash register...poor guy.
I ended up making a fort in the computer room and sitting Darius down to watch Spiderwick Chronicles, and letting him sleep on the couch cause he was so afraid.

Will we ever be again?
Cause I have found
all that shimmers
in this world will surely fade"

We were up late last night, but I let Hunter sleep this morning, and took the monitor with me to the crosswalk where I watched D walk around the side of the school on his own. I'm trying not to be too overbearing, so I only walk him as far as the crosswalk and let him go the rest of the way on his own, but I still wait at the main entrance to pick him up.

I'm so restless, looking for something to do with myself. Usually summer is where I loose weight because I'm so much more active, but I think this past summer I've actually gained weight. I can't help but try and think of what I should do with myself now. Should I make a daily schedule for Hunter and I? Time to excersise, time to read, time to get cleaned up, time to work with him on speech and much to do, no wonder I lollygag, it kinda seems overwhelming when I put it down in words.

Sometimes I feel like my only friend is the city I live in"
