Rain

Today has been one of those days you just want to stay in bed and curl up with a good book. Unfortunately I had to finish up my Christmas shopping today. I need to get it all done and than I have to get everything wrapped by this weekend so I can bring it all to my brother. My Mom won't be coming down this year, she just doesn't feel like she's up to the drive. My brother will be able to make the trip up for the holiday, but unfortunately I won't be able to. Christmas season is just not a good time for me to be taking much time off. I'm really not looking forward to this Christmas Day, it'll be the first time in my life that I don't spend the day with my parents (or now my Mom). And with my brother up there I won't have any family down here. I'm glad he is able to go though.

So even though today has been cold and wet I've been running around finishing my shopping. I really thought I was done, but everytime I see something I think would be cool I end up having to get it. I really do have to stop it though.

In honor of the weather today I'm presenting Ms. Irma Thomas, the Soul Queen of New Orleans Music and "I Think It's Going to Rain."

Wow-I really enjoyed that song! Don't let the rain get you down, I'm sorry about your family not being there this year. :( Kudos to you, though for having your shopping already done!
