I love the rainy nights. Such a beautiful sight.

Summer storms are great (though somehow I missed spring...where did that go?). This morning I woke up at 3 am to some awesome thunder. It wasn't the Ka-Boom kind of thunder, more of the Ca-Rack crackle crackle kind of thunder. I woke up happy because I love thunderstorms. I had my windows open to circulate air too but I thought I better close them down so I wouldn't blow off my windows or rain in on my books and such.

This was a good plan until I heard some drip drip drip in my kitchen. This isn't always unusual since my kitchen sink sometimes drips if I don't shut it off just so, but this was a different sound. I put on my glasses and turned on the light (ouch!) and saw that my counter below the skylight was wet. Grrr. I wiped it off, grabbed a bucket and of course once that was in place the dripping stopped. Figures. At least it's not flowing through but still not a good thing.

The worst thing is that because I turned the light on, I was now awake. It's 3 am! I have to work in the morning, I can't be up yet. And I couldn't get back to a decent sleep. I drifted in and out for the next 3 hours before I finally drug my sorry ass out of bed and hopped in the shower. I had a headache most of the morning because of my lack of sleep. I hate that. And I was supposed to work out this morning but that didn't happen either.

I'm sure I'll get the joy of this all week since it's supposed to rain every day. I can't wait.
