Sunday. There was a really bad thunderstorm last night around 4.15am that woke me up and didn’t let me sleep for two hours. Lightning every 5 seconds. The noise of the thunders and the rain on my window were too loud.
This morning my garden looks like a botanical massacre. I’m thankful there are not dead animals to be seen (or picked up and tossed behind the bushes).
I believe it was the perfect night to get the picture of a lightning bolt. As I was laying in bed I contemplated standing up and trying, since I read once that it was one of the most difficult things to do. And as you can imagine, that only made want to take a picture of one lightning bolt.
But then I though: “With my luck, the storm will stop as soon as a get up”. So I stayed in bed. And of course, the storm continued. When I finally decided to do it, I realized that my body was like 5 tons heavy and I couldn’t actually move. I’m still weak. It’ll be hell to wake up in the morning this week, school starts on Wednesday or Thursday. I don’t know for sure when, I have to ask my kids to call some friends. I’m a great mom as you can see. Very well informed.

Yesterday I got asked: “What did you do today?”. Not much, I went to bed at 5.30pm and watched 3 movies. But I can’t remember what happened before that. I miss like 4 hours. This is one of those times that I think I was abducted (again).

Very often the man used to ask me what did I think about something or how I imagined things would go. After we split, he doesn’t do it so often because after I said: “You are so afraid of losing that you don’t even try” and added a: “It’s time to grow some balls”, he doesn’t like my opinion on some areas anymore.

But there is one thing he keeps asking me:

-Are you there?

-If I have to plan some activity outdoors and it says 25% chance of rain

-Is it better if I don’t do it or it’s ok?

-Is the weather tomorrow going to be as good as today?

Really? Does he think I work for the Weather Channel? Or did someone tell him I own one of these?

Last time I told him: “When I tell you that the weather is going to be nice it’s because I checked the weather app, not because I have some super powers and can predict the future. I still can’t read minds or know what’s going to happen. I wish I could, I’m sure that would save me a lot of pain”.
“Do you check the weather on an app??”.
Right at that moment I had to count up to five thousand. Is he fu#$ing kidding me? I remember when I lived in Cowshitland I could tell when it was going to rain and when it would stop. And it never failed. If the freaking clouds were coming from my front door neighbor’s house, it’d keep raining. I never cared to know if that was north, south, east or west. I should learn that and see if here it’s the same. It could be handy.

The stupid app says it’s going to be 30ºC/86ºF today so I’m doing some laundry. I have a really hard time believing that because it’s 1.45pm and it’s only 17ºC/63ºF. Let’s see what happens. My hopes are as high as a mushroom.

After reading this joke I would probably have to agree with the man and believe I have super powers because I laughed like crazy.

  2. Oh that’s a good one. My husband also always asks me these inane questions that he can answer just as well as I can. I think it’s just a man thing. They are always looking for substitutes for their mothers.

  4. I seriously don’t know what he was thinking when he kept asking you about the weather. Didn’t he think it’s better to check the weather himself or he just wanted to talk to you but didn’t know what to talk?

  5. Haha.. I love that last picture… and I never trust weather apps (nor weather forecasters in general). I mean, the disparity in their predictions is right in their names… whether…
