still raining

And our lawn guys are here.  Yes, it seems you CAN mow and blow while it's raining.

Last night I decided to clean off the top of my dresser.  And I dusted.  (I'll wait while you pick yourself up off the floor)  My brand new, high quality, beautiful dresser is warping.  From all the moisture!!  The drawers are sticking.  Did I mention this was brand new?  Just 2 years old.  Beautiful.  It's taken me 16 years to find bedroom furniture I like, like enough to buy a whole set.  (I'm not a matching set kind of person, but I LOVED this stuff)  This dresser has a mirror on top which has been getting water droplets on it.  Last night I cleaned the mirror and noticed that several pictures had the water droplets and the WALL had water droplets.  Oh No!!  PLUS the couch feels wet.  Mildew is going to happen.  All of our furniture is going to be ruined.  Mildew popped up on our outdoor furniture just yesterday.  *waaaaah!*

If I had known we were going to move to Hawaii again, I would have never bought ANY of our newer furniture.  Never.

See, being a career military family, you learn to live with junk furniture.  You move too much to have anything nice.  I do know some families that buy new and sell with each move.  I don't know how they aren't in debt up to their eyeballs unless they have money outside of the soldier's career.  I bought this stuff thinking that we were only a couple of moves away from retirement.  I never dreamed we would have an overseas assignment.  (this is considered an overseas assignment)  That's what I get for thinking.

This island got 3-10 inches in a 24 hour period.  I'm quite sure our back yard got at least 8!!

I finally got my pink ribbon t-shirt.  I ordered it from cafepress.com and it's so cute!  It's pink and it has the ribbon on front and it says "hope and a future Jeremiah 29:11".  It's so me!

You better get your boat ready! What a bummer about your furniture. Are you kidding me the lawn guys are mowing? They just want their money I think..hee hee.
The shirt sounds nice.  I am going to go to the wesite and check it out.
Take care,
Trish
