Rainy Friday

Rainy Friday's bum me out a little and I always tell my students, "Rain on a Friday should be ILLEGAL!", but secretly, there is something I like about it. Just a tiny bit. One little thing, actually....

that I get to stay home on a friday night, with an excuse (eww its rainy!) to just watch movies with my hubby, put a pizza in the oven, and unwind from the week.

That is one nice little thing about rainy fridays. However, there are things I really don't like:

1. Trying to get in and out of my car with an umbrella (well, the umbrella doesn't go IN the car, but you know how you have to slide in the car, holding the umbrella out, figure out how to close it, without getting so wet that it was even worth using one in the first place!) grr. I also teach between two schools, and have to travel in the middle of the day. I HATE that on a rainy day.

2. Squeaky Shoes on linoleum floors. I hate squeaky shoesssss and today, I was the squeaky girl! (thank you new target flats...)

3. Bugs. They come inside when it rains, or at least, that's how it seems at my school. We have a bug problem all the time if you ask me (but, I have a feeling EVERY school has bug issues--just ask the custodian! They know all, see all). Today, I made the mistake of looking up while peeing, and I saw about 4 spiders crawling around on the ceiling. UGHHHH. They could totally drop on my HEAD.
note to self: don't look up. (or down. the other day a roach ran past my feet when I was using the toilet--ach!)

I hope not everyone is having a rainy Friday-but you can bet your bottom dollar that over here on the East Coast--we are. I'll snuggle up and watch some movies while munching on some Red Baron for you, tonight. (While you're out...secretly wishing you had an excuse to lounge at home!)

Ta-ta!

  2. Ew I hate the rain too (we have the rain today too).

    I hate getting the bottom of my pants wet when I don't wear rain boots (and the it inevitably soaks up to my knees or something).
    I take public transportation and hate dealing with a wet umbrella on the bus and metro. What do you do with it? You can't set it on the seat- someone needs to sit there! I can't put it on the floor because 1- that is gross and 2- I'll forget it. I've started carrying a plastic bag to jam the umbrella into that I can stick in my bag. It still gets everything all wet though.

    I hate riding the bus because they leak all over half of the seats- rainy days increase my chance of having to stand on the 45 minute bus ride.

    I hate that people are stupid with umbrellas and don't realize that they take up more space than normal.

    UGH.

  6. I have totally give up on using an umbrella--I just always make sure that my rain coat has a hood.

    It might not be cute, but it's less stressful for me!

  7. Oh man, I totally hate squeaky shoes, too! They bug the heck out of me. And I don't even bother with an umbrella anymore. I am too uncoordinated and after many years in Scotland, I got used to the rain. I now just say the heck with it. :) Have a great weekend!

  8. Once I finally get into the car after using an umbrella, I always think it is not even worth using the umbrella! I'm always even wetter just trying to get the dang thing closed and in the car!! :)
    Enjoy your Friday night in, those are my favorites!!

  16. I love rainy nights!!! Your right, it makes for the perfect excuse to cuddle up next to hubby!!! I wish you'd send your rain my way....It's 102 degrees here today!

  17. O no, sorry about all of the rain! It's suppose to be about high 70's to low 80's the entire weekend w/ no rain! I'll try to enjoy it for you as well! :-) Have a wonderful weekend!

  18. your so funny. rainy friday's at home are the best.

    personally, i would love for a little rain right now. i am so sick of this 100 degree weather and warnings for the elderly to stay inside! i'm over it! haha

    oh and the umbrella thing? i inevitably get myself soaked trying to put it down... its pointless.

    and i hate squeaky shoes... not necessarily when it is someone else but when it is me! i usually have pity for the person when it is someone else because i know how embarrassing squeaky shoes is!

  19. This reminded me that I need to check out Target for cute flats, haha! Hope you are enjoying your rainy Friday night in. That's what I am doing too :)

  20. We are definitely having a rainy Friday in our neck of the woods, aren't we? I just took the dogs out and there are leaves everywhere from the winds last night.

    I think we're planning a lazy movie and pizza night too ;)

    P.S. I don’t like the sound of squeaky shoes on linoleum floors either.

  21. How about just cuddle up on the couch on a rainy friday night!!

  22. I love the rain so much that if my husband would let me, I would name my future daughter Rain. Or at least her middle name. :)

  23. it poured all day today. I was soaked to the knees by the time I got to work. ughhhh!

  24. Well, dear friend, I've found our difference in opinion.

    I love rain. Although, you're right...the squeaky linoleum stinks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know EXACTLY what you mean about the umbrella thing - getting in and out of the car with one is almost worse than getting wet in the rain. Ugh.

  26. Today it pelted down with rain and hail and there was lightening and thunder...and I loved every minute of it. Cosy blankets, hot chocolates, watching my kids jump in puddles...priceless!
