There is a HUGE thunderstorm right now going on outside. HUGE!!! As I'm laying down with Matt I have to get up to check the weather. It said we'll get an inch of rain in half an hour. Also cloud to ground lightning. Fabulous. The bright side to all of this is that my kids never (or rarely) wake up when there is thunder going on outside. So no worries on that end. But I wouldn't mind it if they did wake up because holding them sometimes makes me feel better. My anxiety doesn't go away completely, but it does help it. It says that it should be done by 10:30, and according to my computer clock, it is 10:17. Thirteen more minutes. I think I can survive. I'll help the time pass by watching Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Harrison Ford can help to make me forget about the madness going on outside.
You know, I wasn't always this bundle of nerves.
OK, just checked again, and it looks like I won't be going to bed for a bit. This time it said until 11pm. And that means 38 minutes left of feeling like this. Dang. Don't know if Harrison and Sean will be able to keep me focused for that long......and the electricity just flickered. I think I'll find me a flashlight. Later.
