It's becoming biblical around here

First there was Noah (or Nugget as I refer to him).



Then there was the twins (you know "two by two" and all that?)



And now, the flood...



We woke up this morning to a completely flooded kitchen and living space. The torrential rain overnight has wreaked havoc. Our floorboards were soaked (with leakage into the garage below). Worse still, our rugs are soaked (any suggestions?). The rain continues today, so there is nowhere to dry said rugs or all the towels I have used trying to soak up the excess water. It is literally chaotic with my two babies crawling all over the place, children's chairs stuffed under the rugs to keep them off the ground for airing, and EVERYTHING damp. To top it off, the Geege, who was meant to be on a rare day off today, has had to go into work. All of this to deal with on my own...



The familiar tug of snack foods has been there today (as it has been much of this miserable week). I have been keeping myself busy, and I just made a big pot of low-Point Lentil and Pumpkin soup (http://www.weightwatchers.com.au/util/prt/recipe.aspx?Type=1&RecipeID=33831) so hopefully that will suffice when the long afternoon stretches out.



Gotta go. Lentils to eat, babies to feed, bottoms to wipe. You know, all in a days work. Weigh tomorrow. Thinking skinny thoughts...
