The rain just doesn't want to stop, this week. It's bumming me out, because I'm leaving for Florida on Wednesday. I'd love to be able to enjoy the city and the holiday spirit as much as possible, before I leave. This rain, however, is making it rather difficult. If it's going to be so cold, I'd rather it just drop a few degrees and snow, gosh darn it. It did snow a bit, the other night - but the next day's rain washed it away. Bah, humbug!

It was so difficult for me to get out of bed, this morning. In fact, I didn't. I would wake up every thirty minutes or so, look at Miku, see that she was still passed out and take that as a sign that I should stay in bed. We are enablers - she does the same thing.
Due to the dreary weather, Bobby and I spent most of our day inside, drinking coffee (him), hot chocolate (me) and listening to Christmas music. We put up some Christmas lights, ate some broiled tomato sandwiches and pan de chocolate, and made a fun little gingerbread train. It was kind of difficult to master - the walls kept caving in and we made quite a mess. Plus, I ate a lot of the candy and it really wasn't that tasty. While we have no future careers in decorating edible holiday displays, we enjoyed it. Bobby called me a brat at least five times, for telling him what a bad job he was doing, but it was all in jest. I mean, I had icing on my nose - how can you take me seriously?

Speaking of Bobby, he won't be going home for Christmas, this year. His work wouldn't let him take off for the holidays. It has been making me so sad, thinking about him being all alone on Christmas. I'll be gone for almost three weeks...I'm worried that he'll be lonely. Hopefully this rain will clear up, because we have a lot of holiday festivities to busy ourselves with, until I leave. Tomorrow, we're supposed to go ice skating. Let's hope the rain will stop for at least a couple of hours, because I don't think I can skate in the cold, cold rain!
What do you do on a cold, rainy day?
