Life Update

Life has been strange/crazy lately, but I wanted to write down some feelings I've had lately.

  • I have been using all of my self-control lately and have not decorated our house for Halloween yet, even though I want to sooooo bad.  I need to express my excitement for fall somehow, so I've been wearing my Halloween socks.
  • I am so glad summer is over.  It's my least favorite season.  Seriously, I will never understand why people like to go out in 80+ degree weather and sweat.  And squint from all the sun.  Don't get me wrong, I like the occasional sunny day.  But sun every single day makes me angry.  Good thing I live in Seattle.  The only thing that got me through the miserable hot days was the new AC we bought from Costco.  And I am sooooooooooo ready for fall weather, fall colors, apple cider, gala apples, candy corn, and Halloween decorations!  No season makes me as happy as fall.
  • My mom and dad got in a motorcycle accident.  Mom got a severe concussion and dad broke his leg.  I am so lucky that's all that happened.  It drives me crazy when people say, "Do you know what could have happened???".  Obviously I do, but it didn't, so lets be grateful and move on. 
  • Brent's sis and bro-in-law are moving their family to Portland.  This is awesome.  They're some of our very favorites.  They'll only be 3 hours away and we can meet up at the Great Wolf Lodge!
  • Brandon Flowers new cd came out Tuesday.  It's awesome.  And he's hot.  My husband knows Brandon Flowers is on my Top 5 list of guys so I don't feel bad saying that.  And he wears suspenders so that makes him hotter.
  • I was at Safeway the other day getting balloons for my mom's birthday.  A girl came up and said, "Can I help you ma'am?" I instantly looked around for the lady that must have gotten there after me and was getting helped first.  Then I realized I was ma'am!  I know I'm not a teenager or even in my early 20's, but I don't think I'm at the ma'am stage yet!  Luckily today when I went the cashier that helped me called me Miss.  MUCH better. 
I can't think of anything else to blog about right now, but hopefully we'll have some exciting fall things going on so I can write about that!
