I am home...safe & sound. It only took us all day Monday to get home. But the kids were terrific for both flights.
I missed my house, my friends, my neighborhoods and more importantly MY BED! Since being home, I have been feeling really motivated lately to paint bedrooms, re-organize closets, and decorate my kids' room. I am not sure what it is...maybe it was the week away from all the normality's at home. Maybe it is all the "Fall" decor in the stores. I can't help but having a little extra jump in my step and a bit of laughter in my voice. I sound so Polly Anna today!!! It feels good...
Fall - 2004
I can't stop thinking about my favorite season "Autumn". I can't wait for pumpkin pies, crock pot dinners, leaves on the sidewalk, hot cider, carving pumpkins, new boots & sweaters, kids walking to school....I could go on and on. It is truly my favorite time of the year. It almost makes me sick that I am already wishing it was here.
Don't get me wrong. I love going to the beach, wearing flip flops, and late night slushies. But the feeling of Autumn just won't escape. If only we could go from Fall to Spring and skip Winter (after the holidays of course).
But, I won't rush it. I will savor all the neighborhood BBQs, kids catching fireflies, and CUBS baseball games.
