In the words of Karen Carpenter...

Talking to myself and feeling old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around,
nothing to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.

I am so tired of the rain. I am a sunshine kind of girl. I need my vitamin D fix. I had to head to the tanning bed this weekend to get my fill. It got me thinking about all the songs about rain. There are a ton of them. But here are few of my personal favorites, do you have some?
"Have you ever seen the Rain?"--
Creedance Clearwater Revival

"I Love the Rainy Nights"--
Eddie Rabbit

"Laughter in the Rain"--
Neil Sedaka

"I Made it Through the Rain"--
Barry Manilow

"Don't Rain on My Parade"--
Barbra Streisand

The longer this goes on the more I am looking forward to our days at the beach. I don't mind those mid afternoon sun showers that the summer on the gulf brings. But I will have to say that as green as it has made everything and taking into account those whose areas need rain desperately, I am sick and tired of it. Bring on the Sunshine.


  1. I had a kid crying before school today because the annual Track Meet was being canceled for the second time ..... I agree, bring on the sunshine!

  2. nothing like the sunshine to make us feel better, rain yuck!!!

  3. I agree Lori, bring back the sun! I just wanted to stay in bed all day and sleep.

  4. I love that Carpenter song! Mondays always get me down, too.

    I try to alleviate it by doing my Bad Gratitude Monday posts, but Mondays are still the most hectic day of my week, and my least favorite. Double that sentiment if it's raining.
