Changes

The leaves have suddenly decided to turn. While eating on our porch, the other night, the wind carried swirls of yellow all around us. And now our house is getting cool in the mornings. While I lie in my bed, gathering courage to jump out and run to my beloved robe, I know that soon I'll hear the hissing of radiators and the smell of singed air. The girls wake with stuffy noses and sore throats as the first cold starts winding it's way from bed to bed.

Today we traded cold cereal for oatmeal. I shuffled through drawers looking for long sleeved shirts (there weren't any).

I was wondering if we'd be here for Fall. Not sure what would be worse... To be here with no answer? To be here... alone... missing out on the changes with head buried in newsprint and boxes? To be here with hopes depleted?

But now I think the momentum of the changes, still exciting to me, will carry me through... no matter the outcome.

I hope.

Is it really cooling there already? It is finally eighty here. Do you want me to send the long-sleeved back to school clothes?

Mom,
I'll let you know. I need to bring the bins up and deal with Kid's writhing around while I try to get her to try things on. I'll exchange shirts for your shoes.


Supemom,
I am one step away from that myself.


Tracey,
Yeah something fishy is going on. I remember burning up trying to walk home from school with Kid last fall. We needed coats today.


Inkelywinkely,
I hope so. I'm going to get pretty depressed I fear if the news isn't good. But maybe by then It'll be Christmas and I'll have something to distract me!


Mr F,
at least
