It's a rainy day today. I do love rainy days. I love how the world seems to be washed clean by the angry droplets from the sky.

What I don't like is the occasional flood and the devastation it brings - but that's not a usual occurence.

We're moving house (again) early next month so I'm frantically trying to fit so many things in the 24 hours I have all day: work, overtime work, packing up the stuff in the apartment, walking Nikka (we walk regardless of the weather), fixing stuff in the destination house, QT with the family, and sleep.

Aaaah, sleep. Such a luxury I can't seem to afford lately, especially since my commute has again been extended from a mere 10 - 20 minutes (with the worst traffic) to a mind-boggling 1 - 1.5 hours (traffic nonwithstanding). My weekends aren't exactly sleep-conducive either, as I usually have overtime work to do... plus cleaning up the from-location and to-location.

Until this move is completed, I may never get enough Z's. On second thought... until we move again to a location near the office, where the girls have a garden to frolic in, I doubt "enough sleep" will be in my list of top-ten things I do daily.

Now I'm having second thoughts if I really want a (human) baby...

Moving is never fun whether it is the next block or 10 miles down the road. Especially if you are a collector of things. My wife is and every cabinet we have is filled to capacity. I love rainy days too.Once I found an abandoned school bus in the woods when I was a child. Just the shell sitting on the ground with no cab. I cleared away the growth around it and would go there to think and dream. On rainy days it was my place to sit and listen to the drops hitting the roof and felt safe from the elements. I miss those days. Hope you are having some rest this weekend.

Thanks Odie. It's been a real whirlwind of activity and I don't think I've given myself enough time to sit and just think. I can relate with the cabinets filled to capacity - I'm the collector in our couple (mostly clothes and books) so I'm having a gosh darn hard time picking which to take with me and which to leave behind/donate to charity. Hope you had a great weekend!
