Rain, Rain, Go Away...

come back once I can get inside the security of my own home. I LOVE the rain. Just as long as I am inside my own house and don't have to get out in it. I detest being wet from the rain. It's like I'm going to melt or something (joke)! I'm sitting here at my desk at the office just listening to it. Isn't it funny how you can have a love/hate relationship with something like the rain? I love the sound of thunderstorms, but they scare me. If Jon's not home you can bet I'm on my way to my parents house or to my sis-in-laws. I don't do thunderstorms at night alone. Nope, not happening! I'm telling you that in high school and during the first few years back home from Tech when I was living with my mom & stepdad they had a cot that they kept in the corner of the bedroom. If there was a thunderstorm, a random noise or a scary movie I plopped right down on that cot in their room. It's an ongoing joke with them that they had their grown daughter sharing their bed through her teens...apparently they think that the fact that Lucas refuses to leave our bed is my payback!!

Oh I am the same way. I hate storms at night-and also slept in my parents room for many many years...now when we have storms while sean is on a trip I have to take sleep meds to make it through...right now that is benadryl-last night and tonight included!!

At least you got a cot. I had to make a bed on the floor at the foot of my parent's bed. So fun! I don't even stay alone without storms!

Michelle,

Do you remember that time that Jon was out of town and we had just moved into our house? I think I called you & several other people to help me through the night. Anyways, I emptied out my dresser and pushed it from my closet to in front of my bedroom door so no one could get in. Later Jon asked me what I would've done if someone had chosen to come through the window instead. See...I never thought of that!! Now I worry about the door & the window!
