Today was a very lazy, lay around the house kind of day, but ultimately I think we both really needed it.
We ended up going over to the Magic Kingdom for dinner & fireworks last night and were up pretty late, and I honestly didn’t even realize until I started seeing the posts on Facebook that apparently there was a tropical storm hovering over us, just waiting to dump buckets upon buckets of rain on our heads at any given moment… 😯
Luckily, we were able to make it to the store and back for food without getting too ridiculously soaked (although my umbrella did get quite the workout!), and after that we pretty much spent the rest of the day just laying about, eating junk food and watching bad movies to pass the time. My choice of film was Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which I had thought I remembered someone had said that it “wasn’t that bad,” but clearly they only stayed for the first half of the movie if that was their takeaway opinion of the flick. Sara’s choice was I Don’t Know How She Does It, which was just fucking terrible really from start to finish.
During a brief intermission so that I could make brownies and do some dishes, we also watched the episode of The Simpsons where Bart and the other superstars get sent away to Capital City in an attempt to avoid them dragging down the school’s standardized testing scores, so at least that was quality entertainment. 😀
Also, throughout the course of the day we got a veritable crap-ton of rain, to the point where the pool was overflowing and there was a good couple of inches of standing water out on our covered patio in the back! Cleo wasn’t at all happy about still being forced outside in the rain to go pee. Rumor has it other parts of town closer to the water got hit a lot worse, so she should be happy she didn’t need to wear a life jacket while she was out there… 😛
