Man I'm dragging today. Jeff and I stayed up kind of late trying to figure out what to do with some investing stuff, and then I woke up three or four times during the night panicked about said investing stuff (we bought some property just before the big housing market crash --I wish I'd spent that money at the mall now), and going to one of Wendy's workouts with that type of a night sleep behind you is not a good idea. Here wait I'm going to look for my Wendy picture:see-- that type of energy on someone's face is scary when you think of the things they're going to make you do for an hour! So I got the kids off to school, and went to sleep. I can't seem to make myself do anything. When I did drive Kai to preschool I was cheered up a little to see my flowering pear trees are finally changing color.
We've got them all down our street actually, and they look like a row of torches all lit up. Sorry, I know that's a cliche, but they really look like someone lit the trees on fire. I remember when I first came up to Utah to go to school, and the leaves all started changing color, I was so excited, I sent leaf samples in letters home to my San Diego boyfriend. I'm sure he was thrilled. I can just picture his face now opening up envelope after envelope of dried out crushed leaves. I just hadn't seen things like that before in So. California. If I remember right, I was also excited when it started snowing, but that excitement wore off pretty quick, and hasn't come back.
