Oh, October

I just read through all of my past October posts.  Because, amazingly, it's October.  October, month of beautiful leaves, the commencement of chilly days, and apparently a month where the occasional discouragement of motherhood shows up and then retreats with a cup of hot cocoa and a bit of philosophy.

No hot cocoa for me this month, though.  This month is No Sugar Month.  I know.  It sounds like a lot of fun.  But truthfully, there will be some sugar this month, because I let my kids celebrate birthdays and my sister's birthday is coming up.  But the sugar is limited. I figure before we jump into the holiday season with beaucoup sugar we will try and go without for the most part.  Wish me luck.  I'm the one addicted to chocolate chips.

Soccer season is over, and that's a relief, because it will cut down on the weekly craziness.  Although not entirely this week, because the kids' Reflections stuff is due this week.  My kids take Reflections seriously.  I am not a fan.  But I do what I can to facilitate.

It's late and I need to go to bed.  I'm tired.  I need to brush my teeth.  I need my sleep since I don't get my sugar.

I'll see you later.

{P.S. Go Riley Nelson.  You have my vote for QB.  Just wanted to get that in there.}


  1. Good for you on account of: no sugar, philosophical motherhood and being an all around upstanding person!

  2. Yes, kudos to you on the no sugar thing. I've definitely given that a whirl once or twice and although feeling absolutely great from it, couldn't seem to make it stick! Would love to hear how it's working out for you - keep us posted
