while it has been quiet thru the daytime today, I just heard them starting up again with the home fireworks. Drat, and along with those, comes all neighborhood dogs barking their heads off..... easy child just got into a nice lavender bath, after resting since she got home from work, and recovering enough to take a bath-----so she could hopefully get better rest tonite.... I do NOT want to have to clean yard and patio and driveway again tomorrow like I had to today. Other things I need my energy and time for. ANd I for sure do not want to have to cope another whole nite and all of tomorrow with husband if this goes on like it did last nite. :-( I am already miffed the partiers messed things up so I did not get to go to my preferred festivities today..... Gosh, I love 4th of July and parades and fireworks and being outside etc....but this just does not seem at all fair to me with all these people here doing this. we live on a quiet residential street far from town center, away from the businesses etc.....darn it.
