I Am Ready for Fall

While my to do list is incredibly long and makes me want to cry when looking at it or even think about it, I am starting to drift off to my happy place. The place happens to be of crisp fall mornings and evenings. The smell of football in the air. And the dreams of no longer having to freeze my cat out of the apartment.

But alas, it is still hotter than Hades here and quite frankly, I just want to scream at how horrible this summer has been. I can’t even blame the city I am in since it is just as bad as home.

I went to brunch with the ladies yesterday and wisely decided to wear a summer dress in the hopes that I wouldn’t sweat to death. Unfortunately, we took a walk to Walnut Street Bridge and back to the pub we were going to have brunch at. Instead of being hit by a cool breeze as we walked into the place, it was more like stale air. And the window AC unit did nothing for the place. It was more like I was sticking to my dress, my legs and my chair. Very unpleasant.

Even now, if I tried to sit on my deck, I would end up melting and the sun has been down for quite some time. Please let it rain a good portion of this week. And while we are at it, let the temps fall into the 70s and stay. I can’t take this much longer.

So bring on the mums, colorful leaves and crisp, cool air. I am ready for layers, football and soup. Or someone please suggest a place I can move to that doesn’t have hot, humid summers. But also has snow because I love that even more than I love fall.


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
