Usually the yearning for fall doesn't begin until September or so- and then I simply can't wait for apple and pumpkin season to kick into full gear... and the changing leaves... This year however I am excited NOW. I want to fast forward through August and half of September just to get to the heart of fall. I've even been cooking "fall" foods- tonight we're having chicken pot pie & baked apples. Maybe its because the weather has been so fall like or it definitely could be the fact that I am extremely ready to have this baby and I still have 3 months to go!? I've even let my mind wander to Maeve's birthday (Oct. 11)- debating between party themes & scoping out possible birthday gifts. I've also decided that there is NO WAY I will be in the hospital during the week of Thanksgiving- either I will demand to be induced the week before (haha I know- I said that last time and I'm way too chicken to demand anything) or I will hold this baby in until after Thanksgiving- or to be exact, the SATURDAY after Thanksgiving. I am determined, with a capitol D, to go shopping the day after thanksgiving! I did it last year and we saved so much money (not to mention had a blast) that I've been looking forward to it for months.
I hope this post doesn't upset anyone- I know its a touchy subject- I mentioned to my mom the other day I wanted it to be fall and she said "its been fall all summer!" True, true- the weather has been awful... so I figure it might as well be fall right? :)
