I mean, the calendar says that it is fall. My teenage girls have pulled out their boots and scarves.
However, our air conditioning is still on. I am still wearing sandals and my cute Jamberry pedicures everywhere I go.
But, I did actually make a pot of chili and bake an apple pie yesterday.
So, yes...it is officially fall.
Once "real fall" finally gets here and I can turn off the a/c and open windows....and maybe, just maybe...... even put on a pair of socks, and wear my hair down, I will be even happier.
Fall does last longer down here in the South. Unlike Minnesota where the leaves change, you get a day or two of beauty and then wham....all the leaves fall....and it is done. Then, it snows. Ha!
Down here, fall actually lasts through February/March....and then spring is here. So, ha again!
So, yes, I am happy. I am hoping that the cooler weather will motivate me to get some things done that it has just been too warm to otherwise talk myself into. We shall see. I am still struggling with stupid thyroid stuff and related things. I now have something called Hypocalcemia (which is basically low calcium levels) and whatever the name is for low Potassium (I don't feel like looking it up for you).
I am sick of being tired. I am sick of being bigger than I should be. I am sick of having a foggier than normal brain.
But, on the positive side, I have had the privilege of getting to take care of some wonderful babies lately....so, life is awesome! There is nothing like the snuggles and happy grins you get out of little people. I mean.....look at these faces!
And, Rainman tells me I should be able to turn off the a/c and open the windows soon.....so, yes, I am happy it is fall. I am off to make some apple crisp now.
