Well, truth be told... the evenings arn't a whirl of activity either....
I love Fall.... I hate Fall....
The beautiful weather! The beautiful blue sky! The pain in my head! The ringing in my ears!
The change of weather brings my favorite season and much anticipated cooler weather, but it also brings hay fever/alergies/sinus problems, which leaves me feeling fuzzy headed, achy all over, a little dizzy and just unable to crawl out of bed each morning.
When Fall rolls around, I am secretly an 80 year old, I am just trapped in this 39 year old's body.... OK... not so secretly trapped.
Where I use to jump out of bed at 5:30 to make my husband breafast, and tackle some laundry or dishs before work, now I barely crawl out of bed at 6:30 to watch him carry a granola bar with his usual cup of coffee out the door.
The poor dog has been following me around the house with the most pitiful look on his little face. He wants to go walking. I want to go back to bed.
This does not help... but I cant control myself. I see the pretty flowers blooming in my yard and have an overwhelming desire to bring them inside to look at all the time (and an unfortunate side effect: smell all the time).
There are grocery stores I need to visit, Apple crisps I want to make, Laundry I want to fold, books to read, calls to make, bible studies to plan....But it gets dark by 7:00p each night, my cue to get a bath and get in bed.
Its difficult to get much done when 7:00p is your bedtime.
