I am just so tired. I really have nothing to write. I feel like a zombie. I have so much to do and no time to do it in. I often ask myself why I am doing this and want to drop out. I know things always seem to get done. I just want to sleep and do nothing. Yesterday the piece holding my muffler up broke so my muffler started to drag. It was one of those little annoyances that comes at the worst time and of course costs money. I can never seem to get ahead...I always end up two steps behind. I can never do things the easy way. I have been craving time with God lately. I hate how I get busy and that is one of the first things that goes.
I got to see my niece's dedication on Sunday. She is just so beautiful. It reminds me again how grown-up my sister is :). I am so blessed to have a wonderful family and friends who put up with me even when I'm a zombie :)

A beautiful fall day

Today is the first day this year that I truly noticed Fall. It was so strikingly beautiful today. I take all of these wonderful beautiful back roads to the preschool that have trees hanging over them and little streams running next to them. It was just an amazing day. I'm sure Fall was beautiful before today, I just didn't really take the time to notice. I was pretty much in bed all weekend with Dave's lovely illness so maybe being out in the "real world" again made me appreciate it. Today two of my preschoolers (who stay for the afternoon extended day) and I took a walk around the church grounds. We made leaf piles and jumped in them and found a huge leaf the size of an adult's head. It was a lot of fun and the perfect day for a walk. This evening I met up with an old friend from my childhood. I have known her for probably 20 years but we hadn't seen each other in almost 3 years. It's great to reconnect with old friends. I hope everyone is having a lovely November.
