It’s still entirely too hot for me to officially slide into my Fall vibe. The mornings have barely cooled off and even by the afternoon, it’s back in the 90s. If I wasn’t on the hunt for candles and didn’t see or smell Pumpkin/Apply Spice EVERYTHING (unfortunately), I would still think it’s August. And I’m actually kinda mad about it. But at least there’s Fall television, right?
Well, there is but only if you have the time to indulge. Five days a week I am on some kinda field: the football field as my daughter’s cheers or the soccer field since my son has joined a recreational league. If I’m not on the field, my chauffeur’s hat is on. By the time we get home, it’s close to 7PM. After dinner, homework, and a shower, I’m ready to dive deep into my covers. And even though I am completely drained, I’m still grateful. Grateful that my kids are healthy enough — physically, mentally, emotionally, etc. — to live such active lives.
There’s still a television on the wall in my bedroom. Let me make that clear. I haven’t reached the point where I want to remove it completely because there are still slow mornings that are definitely a necessity. Especially for when the weather really shows up and a cool morning breeze that brings in that Fall scent through my bedroom window and serves as my alarm clock.
