Fall is on it's way!

I feel fall closing in on us. I am so not ready for the cold weather. There were frost warnings on two day this past week and Tom has started wearing some layers for his ride to the hospital at 5am. We all headed to the park last night after Tom got off work and we had to put on our coats. I invested in winter coats for Grant and myself this past week, so I'm getting prepared. I love love love the summer so I'm sad to see it slipping away. We didn't have much of a summer this year, it was beautifully hot when we left Oklahoma but we had to put on the heater the first week we arrived here and there has only been one day over about 80....we went to the beach!!!

I'm so excited that it's time for the school year to start back because I get to start working with Grant on his lessons, not that we don't learn every day together, but it just signals to me that I can get back out the schedules, have a plan for each day, and not spend all my time working on silly things. I thrive on lists and structure so this gets me excited. (Man I'm lame!)

Morgan seems to be a little happier, so I'm hoping this means I will get more accomplished each day besides getting basic meals cooked, enough underwear clean to get through the week, and getting a movie popped in for Grant before I wrestle the beast the rest of the day. Please pray that Morgan stays happier this week, it's still overwhelming.

The house is coming along but there is still so much left to do. The upstairs is almost finished being drywalled and we are almost ready to paint, I cannot wait!! Then its down to the basement to work on the playroom. I'm so ready to get that spray painted graffiti of male genitalia off my wall!!! I know!!! I was hoping we would be a lot further along on everything but with Tom's schedule, Morgan being a hand full right now, and my symptoms flaring up do to lack of rest, it's about all we can do to make it through the day and working on the room for an hour to an hour and a half before bed.

We are really enjoying Michigan, despite the cold, but really miss our family being close. I am very excited about Thanksgiving because Tom will be off, my parents will be coming up and hopefully the house will be in better shape for them to see. Even though I hate the cold, I love snow, so I'm looking forward to a REAL snow this year and seeing Grant enjoy playing in it! I so want to post some after pictures of the house and especially of our front garden, it is beautiful, but I've yet to find the camera cord and now the camera is dead because that is how it charges you will just have to wait and deal with the suspense, sorry!


  1. I'm so glad you guys are adjusting so well! I loved the weather when I was up there last weekend. Everyone kept telling Kody about all the snow! YIKES! It sounds fun though. Won't it be nice to have inches of snow instead of just inches of ice?? Ohhh Oklahoma...

  2. Been thinking about you guys! Stay warm. How is Morgan doing?

  3. My boys loved getting on their snow pants, boots, layers etc. We never needed that stuff in OK! LOL! Enjoy!
