I'm realizing that tomorrow is OCTOBER 1. How did that happen? Wasn't it early Sept just a day or so ago? We have no Halloween costume picked out! I'm not ready! I just put up my autumn leaves tree! Now I have to switch it out for my Halloween tree?? Gah, I messed up the timing of this. Stupid first world problems.
I made an apple pie this weekend. (actually I'm typing this before I made the pie. but by the time you are reading this, I will have made the pie. isn't that funny how faux blogging really is? i'll have an apple post for you later this week.)
It's rained and rained. We turned the heat on. Then we turned the heat off. Off, on. We'll continue in this vein for another month or so and then it will just be ON. I don't look forward to turning-the-heat-on time because for the first couple of weeks, the gas heat gives me headaches, but Julia and Andrew love it and race each other to get to their favorite heater spots. Julia likes to have her breakfast while sitting on the heater, but those days have to be very Non Messy breakfasts.
And in the FYI dept of your blog reading, our old cat Robin, he used to puke in/on our heaters. It was his favorite place to throw up. Poor little guy, he had irritable bowel syndrome. He's in kitty heaven now, and now instead of the puking, we have the clothes eater (Sally) and the plastic eater (Rosebud).
I've decided I don't really like animals very much anymore. (don't tell my daughter!)
