I don't really know what happened. I blinked and October is gone! I will say this is probably THE MOST enjoyable October I've had since I was a kid. Kyle and I have not had one weekend that is boring or stay-at-home. We have flung ourselves into the gorgeous fall and enjoyed it thoroughly. There have been fall parties, helping friends make costumes, events for later on this year being planned, and lots of traveling. Went to Ohio and reconnected with some family members and thoroughly enjoyed that.
I will randomly think, "oh... I should blog about this!" or "Gee its been a while since I blogged!" and then get back to whatever I'm doing and forget about it. SO just wanted to remind you, dear cyberspace, that I am alive and well. Just having too much fun to record it for the blogosphere to see and enjoy.
We've also been enjoying everyone else's kids A LOT this October. That may or may not have influenced the sudden resurgence of questions and hints of, 'So when y'all having you some kids?!'
It doesn't bother me like it used to, partly because while I'd PREFER to have my husband to myself for a while longer, I feel like we've established ourselves as a healthy couple and COULD handle the added challenge of raising a child should we be blessed with that opportunity. But also because I think I've made a lot more peace within myself about my own issues with my mom. I've found areas that I really do want to be like her and so that makes the parts of her that I see in myself more easy to try and discipline myself out of.
So all in all its been a pretty good October. November is looking just as busy; we already don't have one open weekend and the weekdays are getting pretty busy too. I guess thats what we get for being such interesting people!
