When it rains, it pours...

So, I'm literally and figuratively speaking here...These past couple of days, Cypress has received an overwhelming amount of rain! We woke up this morning to many flooded streets and no school. In our area, about 8-10" of rain fell, leaving some underpasses under 6+ feet of water! Our church even opened as a Red Cross Shelter, Mark and I are both on the response team, they asked if Mark could stay overnight tonight! It's crazy!

Now figuratively speaking...there is so much going on right now with us! It's the end of the semester for my classes. I have one final next week, and another the following week. I have two papers due Monday (which I am trying to avoid working on at this very moment). I have a meeting with my advisor tomorrow, so I've been trying to figure out which classes I can take based on how well they work around everyone else's schedules. The VA is now accepting the post 9/11 application paperwork for the gi bill...filled that out, just another stressor. Mark's grandmother passed away last Wednesday, so the close of last week was filled with the kind of stuff you do when someone passes...not very fun! A little added drama was dealing with Mark's mom and her state of mind right now! We also missed Abi's pictures and first t-ball game, though she made it (thanks Wendy, again!) On top of that we have friends that are in a rough patch that are leaning on us, and weighing heavily on our hearts. If it isn't one thing it's another...for some unknown reason the breaker in our room keeps tripping if anything more than the alarm clocks is turned on. Added to that, the breaker for the washing machine tripped today, and now it's not spinning! Mark's windshield wipers on his car stopped a while back...I would prefer to fix it ourselves, seeing as how that would more than likely save us money. Thursday grocery shopping, not my favorite thing in the world! I also anticipate standing in line Friday at the courthouse to order a replacement tag for my truck...yea...Austin turns 7 next week, and I am not certain what exactly we are doing for his birthday yet. So much going on, and I just want to go take a nap!!!!! Now I actually know what it means when someone says, "When it rains, it pours!"
