I can hardly believe it's Fall already.  It seems like just yesterday Lael was jumping off the diving board.  We were wearing short shorts, (ok, the kids, not me.  Never me.  Ever. Ahem.) riding bikes, eating popsicles and enjoying the warmth of the sun.

It's over.

I mean. The sun will still come out.  But now it's only good for thawing off numb ears and fingers.


As much as I don't like the cold. I do love the changes of the season.  Pretty scarves, pretty hats and gloves.  Colorful leaves.

But before all that comes my favorite month of the year. 


So many joys of October.  My birthday is the 7th.  My husbands is the 9th. My best friends is the 10th. My daughters is the 29th.  Halloween on the 31st.

Fun. Fun. Fun.

Today is the beginning of a non-stop party month.  I'll be 28 this year.  OMG.  It's scary just typing it out. 28.  I don't feel like I've lived 28 years.  I still feel 16.  That's good right?

My hubby will be 34.  Good googah moogah, how am I married to an old man?

But what really pulls at my heart is that my precious girl will be 6.  How is that possible?  Where have the years gone?

Didn't she just say her first word?  Didn't she just get potty trained?  When did she stop saying "Dabby" and start saying "Dad"?

The thing is times goes by right before your eyes.  As much as I love the month of October, I wish the months in between would slow down already.


Oh well. It's here.

Time to party!


  1. 28??????? Oh, boo hoo - is that a pity party you're having?

    Try 30.

    That's what I'll be this year.

    As my husband said: "Is it bad that the time of year everything starts dying, I find refreshing? I should probably see someone about that."

  2. You and Lindy --stop it, you two! 28? 30? Even 34 is not old when you're a year away from the big 4-0! :)

  3. Ok, I am not even commenting on age, since apparently I am still in high school. HAHA But still, time does fly nowadays! I think someone should tell Father Time to slow his roll! ;)

  4. October is our big b-day month too. (My husband's b-day is actually the 9th also.) And I feel exactly the same way. Every time I turn around it's October again.

  5. Wow, that is a party month! One of my sons was born on Oct 8th! He was suppossed to be a November baby, but wanted to be here in time to trick or treat ;)

  6. My daughter will be 6 on October 29th, too!

    And one day you will look back wistfully at 28. I do.

  7. 28? Try 38 in March.

    It does fly by, doesn't it? Which makes me feel bad when I waste a day, or yell too much, or get annoyed. It really does go by way too fast.

    But YAY for October!!!

  8. Dang, Gibby, I was winning with 33 until your post!!

    Happy Fun Month!!

  9. Happy Birthday!!!

    I wanted to be the first to tell you:-)

    I do not know where the time has gone. It just flies!!!

  10. You spring chicken!! Enjoy your month of birthdays!

  11. 28??? Jeez, try 41. With a husband who's 50!! You're a sweet young thing!!

  12. Actually her birthday was August 25th but you forgot

  13. I love party months!! And next will be the holidays. Lucky girl, you've got a lot of fun ahead of you!


Those laughing with me...or at me.
