A Little Black Rain Cloud

My sister, Lulu, loves Disney stuff.  She collects the movie music boxes (which are amazingly cool).  She also collects the movies and the plush animals.  She has a pretty great collection really.  And when we were kids, we used to go to the Disney Store at Metro North Mall and hang out.  One day when we were there, there was a little Winnie the Pooh song playing and it got stuck in Lulu's head.  All day long she sang that dang song until I wanted to kill her.  And to this day I have that song memorized because of that day. 

I'm just a little black rain cloud
Hovering under the honey tree
I'm only a little black rain cloud
Pay no attention to little me
Ev'ryone knows that a rain cloud
Never eats honey, no, not a nip
I'm just floating around over the ground
Wondering where I will drip

Anyway, this song is kind of where I am this week.  Dustin has been gone for a long stretch of time and I am tired.  You've read my posts this week about my crazy baby and the rice krispy treats.  Last night it was a sour cream container, a spoon and a sink.  I won't get into the details but the bottom line is, it is hard doing this all week and missing your husband and getting stuff done extra for school not to mention keeping a house clean and working.  But then, the icing on the cake, our babysitter gave us her notice for next year.  Which is sad, we'll miss her dearly and now we have to go through the stressful process of finding new care for next year. 

It is scary, branching out to find new care.  Reese has made friends, sweet friends, at our sitter's house.  And it has been hard for me to find the right balance of not driving far, a nice person, and a decent price.  It's my baby girl and I want her to be happy somewhere. 

So, I've turned into a little black rain cloud.  I've been dripping all over people this week.  I hope the storm blows over but at this point, it could go either way.
