sleepin in the rain


Well I'm still here, though I must admit I haven't been into blogging these past few weeks.
I actually started a new journal and find I'm writing in the evenings for myself rather than here on my blog.
Not sure why, other than now that certain ugh-um...family members know about this blog I guess I feel it's better if I keep certain things to myself.
A bit of self-censorship I suppose.
But things are really good these days.
Though I do find this transitional time of year a bit confusing.
One day you are wearing flip flops and turning on the A.C the next you are freezing your ass off and wondering if it's too early to turn on the furnace.
Normally I love this time of year, tired of the relentless heat and humidity and anxious for the beautiful fall colours and crisp fresh air, but I feel like we totally got ripped off this summer.
Not the best year to buy a boat, that's for sure.
rain rain go away.
So this year not so much.
But at least I'm not living in Texas...yikes.
I guess I have nothing to complain about on the grand scheme of things.
But as a result of all these grey days I can't seem to get enough sleep.
My inner mammal is definitely trying to remind me that the cold hibernating weather is on it's way.
I feel like I'm catching up on three+ years worth of lack of sleep.
Last night I slept for 10 hours!
mind you the night before I had maybe 5 hours.
so when you balance it out I guess that's still normal.
But Lulu is finally on a normal sleep pattern.
8-7ish.
alleluia!!!!
Hard to imagine that one day I will have to be dragging her out of bed in the morning, instead of the other way around.
So I've been a bit groggy to say the least, but I feel so relaxed.
For the first time in a very very long time.
If only I hadn't quit drinking coffee this summer, maybe then I would feel alert enough to actually write a decent post.
yawn.....

That is exactly why I don't want anyone to know about my blog. It was a crappy summer and like you I don't really feel as psyched about fall as I usually do either, but I am going with it trying to get things organized and switched over for the season. I really could have used a nice weekend to go out and do something fun but instead we are home and I am getting antsy.

Pumpkinpie is hard to drag from one season to the next, too. She doesn't want to give up skirts and shorts for pants, so she's been wearing leggings under skorts as much as she can get away with. I dread the first days she really needs a jacket heavier than a hoodie, because she seems to have something against fleece.

Oh, send some of that rain our way... it's just so dang hot and humid here, I can't stand it anymore. I could go for some hibernating as well... something to make these last few weeks of huge-ness go by faster. :)

I think your blog is so cute. I read it sometimes and I think we are a lot a like! My sister just moved to Canada, near Toronto. I would love to talk to you about it sometime.
It has been raining nonstop here in Chicago too :( It is unusually cloudy and just plain wet. I can't wait to see the sun again.
