My husband thinks umbrellas are useless. So he doesn't like the fact that I bought the bigger kids their own umbrella a while back. As it was raining today, I was so excited that my kids have their own umbrellas, so I could use mine! Too bad that Kira's was in the backyard and I was already running late to class. And Ben couldn't buckle his seatbelt, because it somehow got put on the backside of the seat. Ben couldn't share his umbrella, because: "It's too small, mom!" Bummer! So, I had to give up my umbrella for Kira. I don't want her getting wet and sick and it was bad enough that I was dropping them off on the corner! I get to school and there are no parking spots anywhere close to my class (that was now starting). I can usually find a spot (that I still have to pay for) across campus, so I parked there. Then I needed to run across campus in my hoodless coat and heavy backpack in the cold rain. It would have been more fun if I wasn't running so late! I really do like running in warm rain when I'm in shape! Funnily enough, that shape isn't round (which is what I am right now). The good news is that by the time I am in shape, we'll be having warm rain! Then I'll be fine running in the rain. In the meantime, I'll be buying more spare umbrellas to be prepared!
