October Report Card

According to Facebook, many of my friends LOVE the fall. Me, not so much. To me, fall means that cold weather is coming. Just to be clear, I appreciate cuddling under a blanket with a warm cup of tea while wearing cozy clothing. The problem is that I only appreciate it for a brief time. I must be the only strange person in the world who would rather have hot weather. Give me the choice between a 100 degree day or a 40 degree day and the 100 degree day wins hands down. Yes, I know that I am not sane about this. This fall, I have not been doing well at all with keeping up with fall traditions. Here is my fall report card, and it is not pretty.

Fall Decorations - Do empty candy wrappers count? I didn't think so. Grade F

Halloween Decorations - Does a ghost that never got hung up count? No? Grade F

Halloween Costumes - Check! Grade A

Fall Festivals - Mark took the boys to Trunk of Treats, can I still get credit for that one? We also went to Cade's school festival. Grade A-

Pumpkin Patch - Can I blame that we didn't make it to one on the fact that we had so much rain? Grade D

Carving Pumpkin - Ummmmmm. Tried to buy one today to carve, but they seem to all be gone (except for the tiny ones). Do I get some credit for a semi-effort? Grade D

Trick of Treating - YES!!! Grade A

Not a pretty report card!

We've had lots of 100 degree days this fall. Really not so fun when you are living it:)
