Children are off the streets and back in school. Outfits are becoming more layered as jackets make their appearance. The days are getting shorter and leaves are thinking about changing their costumes. There’s a crispness in the air at night and my “feeds” are full of (American) Football updates.
Fall is here!
The trouble with this time of year (oh, I’m starting to sound a little Andy Rooney-esque) is that I crave the U.S. Autumnal traditional foods. Basically tailgating foods, Apple & Pumpkin spiced things. None of which I can just get on a whim. It takes meticulous planning, subversive online shopping and some experimenting in the kitchen. To be honest, all of which is too much work or money for me to stomach (for my stomach).
(Now, someone send me some Fritos, Redhots & Candy Corn - ASAP!)
Getting less and less and less sleep these days, why is that - you probably aren’t asking aloud while reading this. Well! Between getting up to pee 3 to 6 times a night, charley horse attacks, aggressive rummaging of my innards from baby and just sparking awake angry at some transgression happening (to me or not to me) in the world; it is hard to tell why my time spent in dreamland is dwindling.
Bad sleep! Go to my room!
***Emotional vomit alert : My husband surprised me with a baby shower, showing me we do have a COMMUNITY we are a part of - they just happen to be scattered about London! That guy!***
