*I guess it's a good thing that my son's teacher loves him so much and thanked us for moving to FL so she could have the priviledge of having him in her class this year, but I would like to know...where is this awesome kid she talks about?!? Don't get me wrong, if he acts up, I'm glad it's at home, but really. Where is the consistency? Obviously I'm doing something wrong. SuperNanny, please help...

*Why am I falling apart at the young age I consider myself to be? I rode around Epcot and Hollywood Studios in a wheelchair because my foot hurt so bad, then my tooth ached so bad that it's still swollen a week later, and tonight at the bounce playground I jammed my knee. And my foot started acting up again. Gee Whiz!

*Why am I so NOT interested in sports? The Tampa Bay Rays (who ironically play in St. Pete) and the Bucs were both playing home games tonight and I should be excited, but really, who cares? In the grand scheme of things, what does this mean for my life? Is it just that we all need some sort of diversion? I guess I choose Sudoku and Facebook and Blogging, and sometimes Webkinz, instead.

*Why are sleeping kids just the most adorable, heart-melting things to look at ever?

*Why can't we all just get along? I actually have an answer to this one, but it's not so much an answer as just fact. It's still a question of why we weren't made to get along...

*Why do I feel like stockpiling goods? I think I maybe should not have read Alas, Babylon, even though I highly recommend it. That, and economic crisis and election that is not going to make anyone happy.

*Why am I both sad and excited that there's finally a chill in the Floridian air? Ah, fall. It's really here. But I did love the 90 degree days for the most part. But it's also nice to know that my electric bill will be at least half what it was last month. But no apple orchards and hay rides for me (although I did see a "Pumplin Patch" in town at the church we sometimes attend). But I hear that navel oranges are almost in season...the comparisons could go on forever, but just one more good will be nice to dig out the long-sleeved shirts and have a "new" wardrobe to wear to work without having to spend a cent!

I'm old too. My knee is all screwed up! :) I ice mine a few times a week before I go to bed - it helps.

I'm not interested in sports either! You're not alone...and I think you're right - it's choosing a different diversion.

You can send Sean on a haunted pirate cruise at Disney! That would maybe give him incentive to be as good at home as his is at work...and take the place of a hay ride!! (though I'm sure there must be a hay ride somewhere around here...Disney even does SLEIGH rides during the holidays!)

AND again, I agree, the chill in the air is nice and sad at the same time. I am also excited to have the electric bill DROP. YAY!!

Glad it's working for you! I just took Jayden to Crane's Orchard this past weekend for apple picking-pumpkins were sold out! Heard-tell that Friday could bring a rain-snow mix and possibly the REAL DEAL on Monday...Do you have a spare room?
