We are flooded right now. With all the snow and rain of the past weeks, and then with yesterday's non-stop downpour, our city and most of the surrounding counties in 3 states are all under states of emergency because of wide spread flooding. School was closed this morning and I couldn't even get my Saturn SUV out of our neighborhood because the streets were flooded in both directions from our house.
I didn't get to run yesterday because I worked late (a lot of that happening lately) then when I left work I drove past areas that were flooded, and I knew if they were flooded our neighborhood probably was too. So I picked up the kids, stopped by a convenience store to buy milk, and got home just before the flooding was so bad I couldn't drive through it. DH got home 3 hours after I did, and by then the water was 1/4 of a way up our drive way and past everyone's mailboxes, so he parked his car in an area of the 'hood where it doesn't flood and walked through soggy yards to the house.
I stayed home with the kids today. The water was down by around 11 a.m. and didn't rain most of the day. But it's raining again now and it's entirely possible it will flood again before DH gets home from work. It's supposed to rain until late tonight.
This is getting so old. First we're sick, then it's snow, then we're sick again, then it's more snow, now it's flooding rain. I'd really like to have more than one normal week in a row.
My food has gone to hell. With no run last night I felt tense and resentful, so of course I ate what I shouldn't have. Today's been more of the same. And I was all set to take the kids to the gym this afternoon but then the freaking rain starts up again and weather.com says it ain't gonna stop any time soon.
"This is only temporary" isn't so stinking temporary lately.
(No weight to record today because I didn't get on the scale first thing this morning. I didn't feel like being any more depressed than I already am.)
