It is amazing how many people say autumn vs. fall, but does it really matter? I say fall, because it is easier to spell at 2 am in the morning. As we close out the last few hours of summer in Central Ohio, I cannot help but to think about my summer. Last year, I had some truths about my summer of 2012, which you can read about, and it is now become a standard tradition for me to recap summer of 2013 in the same manner. So here we go:
- Traveling with a 2 year old is fun and adventurous. They are still at the stage where they sleep most of the time.
- At the same time, you have to eat where they are most comfortable, and you do have to pull your hair out.
- Disney wants a down payment on future travel dates, NOW!
- I aged a year.
- It is frustrating to talk to a travel agent with an accent.
Ok, so I not have the same amount of truths that I had last year, but over all, it has been one interesting summer. Let me say I am looking forward to the following fall traditions:
- Curling up with my blanket and a book on cool nights, and that book does not have to paper or hardback. It could be digital-back. I have my own Ipad this year (borrowed my mom’s for most of 2012) and a new phone (old smartphone was getting dumber by the minute), so I have plenty of curling up to do.
- Harvest fest at my church. As I explained last year, we are not into Halloween, but we do allow kids to dress up if they want to.
- Starting the countdown of paying off that vacation on the seas in April with Disney. 11 people on a cruise? The Disney Dream will never be the same again when we are through, LOL.
- Did I mention that it was time for my blanky?
All jokes aside, I hope you have a fun, rip-roaring, run through the fall leaves, and drink lots of apple cider, pumpkin carving, with lots of turkey fun this fall. Soon your days will be filled with snow, ice, and all things Christmas and Hanukah. Make the most of it, and do something fall-like (or is it Autumn-like). Have a hayride or two, and do not forget to decorate in your favorite fall colors. Be blessed, my friend. This summer 2013 is in the history books.
