Today I shut off my airconditioning...
Ok, from where you sit it may be freakin' freezing...but here in sunny AZ, today, October 8th was the first time I shut off my air conditioning. I opened the windows, let the breeze in...then promptly shut them and flipped the air back on fifteen minutes later.
But if you lived here you'd say the weather really HAS changed. The 90 degrees isn't THAT hot, there is a FALLISH feeling in the air, not quite crisp, more like less toasty.
MD and I just returned from a wonderful vacation in paradise. We roughed it on the beach in Kauai again this year with some friends. Low key, low drama, high sun, high surf...a real vacation. You know the kind where you get to do what you want, when you want, and that mostly means a whole lot of nothing. It was fabulous. Waves were pretty non-existent the first few days, but came in with a vengance the final two days and we definitely took advantage!
My kids spent the week doing just about EVERY FUN THING IMAGINABLE with my parents in Thousand Oaks. I'd call each day and they were: at the beach, at Chuck E. Cheese, at the Farm and Pumpkin Patch, at the Zoo...seriously...they had a blast. And I was so happy to see them after 6 poopy diaperless, sippy cupless, mommyless days and nights. When we picked them up in LAX I was running to meet them. Something about a week off from Mommyhood makes you fall in love all over again. (thank you MOM for making it possible)
I will post some pictures soon.
