Rain, rain, more rain...

It has been raining for days here in North Carolina. I don't mind a rainy day. I don't feel so bad about laying around all day. When it's an entire week of rain it gets a bit dreary. I can't do anything because it's down pouring. I can't even let my dog out to go potty because my back yard is flooded and he has to swim to the high spot to poop.

Another downer is that we have Direct Tv. Which means we have a satellite. For those of you who have cable or time warner cable like I wanted, it means that when it rains our tv can't get signal and the shows pretty much just pause or stutter. It's ridiculously annoying and makes the day that much more boring.

I've never been a big tv watcher but when I don't have anything else to do all day it becomes a little bit of a habit to see whats on tv.

I try reading but I have to be in the mood to read and I can't find the motivation. I hate sitting on my computer because thats just as bad as watching tv all day.

I can only clean so much and I'm a fast cleaner so I can pretty much do my entire house in an hour. I don't have any hobbies like drawing or anything to keep me occupied that way either.

What do you do on rainy days?


  1. Yeah, this rain is quite annoying. I have to force our dogs out the door and even then they just stand by it so they don't get wet. They have so much energy that they are tearing the house apart. It's drving me nuts!!! I've been cleaning, reading, playing video games, watching tv and that's about it. I was able to plant some flowers yesterday in between the rain showers, though. I have a lot of stuff around the house to do, too, but I can't paint because it wont dry well. Soo annoying.

  2. I've been reading. Oh and today I went to the dentist. I mopped the floor lol. This weather is AWFUL

  3. You could always try cooking new random recipes to occupy time? I am finally getting into cooking and that's what I have been doing. But I also like to be lazy and romantic on rainy days or go for a run in the rain with my pup because he loves it :)

  4. I love running in the rain but the pregnancy doesn't like running so much. I have a lot of cramping so it's painful to do sudden movements or exercise. Cooking does sound like a great idea though! I might go with that one.

  5. I've heard that it's really bad right now! My boys' school got canceled. We're out of town right now and I think I'm glad about that!

  6. I hear that Piney Green is flooded and people have been evacuated. I'm really nervous about the amount of rain at this point.
