I have to say, I can’t wait for autumn this year. Summer was a bit of a bust, and having a whole new season to start fresh will be just about awesome.
It didn’t help that it rained up a storm, literally, most of the summer here in New Jersey, so most of our staycations that we had planned didn’t come to fruition. It also didn’t help that we had to sign a new lease for our place and realized that we’ll need to bring in more money by the time Fall starts officially. Oh, and that I found out I’ll be deploying before the end of the year. Yup, summer needs to be over immediately.
Autumn brings some of my favorite sales as well, mostly at the grocery store. Roasts, whole chickens, baking goods, heaven! This is the time of the year where we love to entertain as well; friends are calming down from their summer trips around the world and look forward to a home cooked meal. We can bust out the sweaters and long sleeves, wellies, and light jackets. It’s just a fun time.
This year, Sonny starts 1st grade. We’ll get back into a wonderful schedule, and maybe even a weekend one with some soccer or karate thrown into the mix. He also gets to take the bus to school this year, which will save us crazy gas money, and of course, my sanity. He’ll be on a schedule at school, and I can put Duchess on a schedule at home, without her brother interjecting all day.
Did you all enjoy summer? Are you looking forward to Fall?
