October! Kicking off the month with...

~Selling Cubscout popcorn with Aidan who started the Scouts this year.

~A ridiculous bill for some plumbing work we had to have done. Have I mentioned I hate money?! I do. And I hate not having a fully funded emergency fund, too.

~Rainy soccer games

~Getting together a master list so I can soon start my Christmas shopping!

~Doing our Fall Decorations :)

~Washing the extra blankets to avoid turning on the heat (our low was 42 last night!). I have a mental contest with myself each year, seeing how late we can wait to turn on the heat. I don't want to turn it on at ALL in October. I think we can do that.

~Trying to find the best place to buy toilet paper

~Participating in 40 Days for Life, 9a.m. this morning. Despite the cold & rain, I'm looking forward to it.

~Doing fun "schoolwork" with Brennan at home.

October is my favorite month. I love that it's cooler but not frigid.
I love the trees changing colors, the smell of fires going.
I love going to the pumpkin patch, preparing for Halloween, making the good Fall foods...
It's a great month in a great season.
Happy October! Enjoy!

I'm glad we're in your favorite month...I am not thrilled about October. It's COLD. It's RAINY. I'm always COLD. And I can't live in a blanket, unfortunately.

However, I'm glad you're having a good time. I am excited about cider!

October is my favorite as well-but I would love it more if I were up NORTH!!!
However, we still don't have heat upstairs so I better be careful what I wish for.
I'm surprised you didn't get married in the Fall! Why???
