gloomy monday

It's one of those mornings where you can hear the rain as it dances against the pane ... the sound of the cars driving past the house, the tires cutting through puddles. The sun hides behind angry clouds that hover and swirl as they sob tears of rain. I've been awake since 3AM ... I don't know why but I wasn't able to sleep. I was plagued with weird dreams and I was hot then cold ... Emma joined me in my bed around 1 or 2 and not wanting to disturb her let her push me to the middle of the bed where I sweated incessantly. Finally I had to move her. The only time I slept well was at 5:30AM when Kyler left for work and even then I was having strange dreams. I set my alarm for 7:30 but woke up at 10 to 7 and stayed up. I go to have my van assessed today so I am going into work late. I am a bit nervous about it - not nervous enough to lose sleep so not sure what was up with that but nervous enough. I'm scared that they are going to total the van and not give me what I need to pay it off ... I'm nervous I'll be minus one car for such a length of time before I can replace the other ... I don't know what to think. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

I hope it's sunny where you are.

Loved Josh's blog. He suddenly remembered how to do it! What a cutie.

***EDITED FOR TONIPARKS***

What a smart girl you are! The estimate for repair was $600 under what it would have cost to total it. They are fixing it right now.

I have to admit I'm kind of on the fence about whether or not they should fix it or total it. I was kind of looking forward to not having a car payment ... ::sigh:: Still the glass is half full yes?
