Rain, rain, go away

Since 2016, I panic when it rains. We flooded during tax day flood here in Houston. Thankfully, we did not flood during Harvey, but I was pregnant. So, we picked everything up and left. We were just finishing remodeling our house in 2016 when the water flowed right on in. The day we flooded we were suppose to get the counter tops put on in the kitchen. But, instead we had to remodel, again. That was a super hard year. Plus, we were still going through infertility treatments and we lost a bunch of our stuff because it was boxed (in cardboard) and stacked in various places. Once cardboard gets wet, it's a mess. So, everything we own is stored in plastic tubs and we don't keep a lot in storage. For now, everything is picked up and about a foot off the ground so we don't lose stuff. I sleep better knowing I did all I could. However, our house is getting elevated within the next year. That should be interesting. Until then, my boots are ready and family members are on-call.
My husband got home last night in the middle of the downpour. He had to stop for milk and bought me some beautiful tulips. In my kitchen window I have gardenias from my garden. There are two buds about to bloom and the other flowers died, so I pinched them off. After our house is raised I hope to put in a new vegetable garden. My old one shifted 4 feet during the flood and I never replaced it. Plus, I had way to many cucumbers. So many that I refused to buy a cucumber until recently, because I was so sick of them. So were my neighbors.
So today, Max and I are chilling at the house, watching Harry Potter and, playing with trucks. That doesn't sound like a bad day at all. Although, I wish we weren't waiting for the rain. I need to look at the radar and see what's going on. Last I heard the storm had moved off over the Gulf. But, I should check with my own eyes.
