RAINY DAY AND MEMORIES OF MARCH 1981

Greeted by a rainy morning today I was okay with staying inside and getting housework and laundry done today.
According to the weather wizards we were not suppose to get much rain but it has rained steadily all day. We got about an inch by the time it stopped late this evening. It has been 42 degrees for most of the day and is predicted to get to 38 tonight.
I have felt a little better today and my sneezing fits have been fewer and farther between,but the nose still drips from time to time.
These recent rains have encouraged a lot of beautiful color in the yard. Tomorrow with no rain I'll get out and get pictures of all the colors hopefully.
One of the men Hubbie works with lost his father and the visitation was tonight. With the nasty weather and the visitation in the next county and me with the chance of a nasty sneezing fit we decided against attending.

I found no pictures taken in March 1981 but I definitely remember what was going on at that time.
I had just found out that I was pregnant with our first baby and was having bouts of morning sickness which subsided at the end of the month as my first trimester ended.
We had had a scare about a tubular pregnancy that turned out to be an ovarian cyst that would probably go away with the birth of the baby.
Things were going normally, I was working at Norton Diamond Tool Corporation in the engineering dept, Hubbie was delivering uniforms for Rental Uniform Service.
We lived in this single wide with an addition on land I had bought from my dad and we were a happy couple awaiting the birth of our first baby.

God has been so good to me through the years and I am forever grateful and will march in His army forever.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, We had drizzle today --and then clouds... It's supposed to get down into the 30's tonight here too... BUT---warm spring weather is on the way (so they say). YEAH!!!

Glad you are feeling better. Love your little home back when you were pregnant with Son No. 1.... By the way, how is his leg/ankle????

Hugs,
Betsy
