what's happening today

i have been home for about a week, and life is back to 'normal' here.  when i was still at home, i looked at the 10 day weather forecast for puyallup, and was slightly depressed looking at nothing but rain.  and the weatherman has delivered, it has not let up even for a second.  let's just say there have been many wet walks with the dog.  many.  even so, it hasn't been as bad as i thought it would be (mood wise).  but, today after all this rain, the river right across the street from us is threatening to overflow, which means it would overflow straight into our house.  our roads are already flooded, and it's impossible to go outside in anything but boots.  

after our staff meeting this morning, i had to take beulah out, and figured the quickest and most effective way to get her some exercise and get her back in, was to throw the ball for her out in our back field (which is, you guessed it, flooded).  all morning we had been noticing the horses acting strangely and rolling around all over the place, and sprinting from one end of the field to the other.  i took beu to a closed off section of the field and we went about our business.  that is until the horses decided to stampede straight through a closed fence, and right into our path.  i think beulah almost passed out seeing crazy bucking horses running straight at her.  

so now, we're back inside, a little more wet, but no worse for the wear.  

i'm praying that we won't be evacuated, because that would suck.  i'd probably be that person that climbs up on their roof and waits out the storm.  

in other news, i am officially moving back to the east coast in the spring.  BUT, more to come on that later:)

i can't believe you would leave me hanging with that last line. oh well I'm sure you're not moving back to columbia, but if you are that would be SO freaking awesome.
