I'm so excited that October is here! It is my favorite month! Maybe it is because the weather is getting cooler, so I can wear my boots and sweaters again. Maybe it is because the trees are changing color. Or maybe it is because my son and I celebrate our birthdays (and have an awesome party of course!). But since it is October, that means it is time for another currently!
I always like to drink a cup of coffee and listen to the news early in the morning. But my dog has a skin condition that flares up in the fall and in the spring. I'm going to the pet store later today to see if I can get something for him...poor thing!
Fall is by far my favorite season, and I just love the cooler weather, boots, and camp fires (we may or may not have sat by the fire last night and made smores :-)
It is so easy to get caught up with all of the bad things in life, because let's face it, there is a lot of bad stuff that happens. But there are also so many good things, big and small, that happen on a daily basis. So I'm going to start a journal and write things I am grateful for on a daily basis. I think it will help reframe my thinking, and be a positive step in the right direction.
I'm wanting the weekend to arrive. This has been a terrible week for my family, and I'm just thankful the weekend is close, and we can finally relax and be together.
Since I've been out of town for a week, I have several errands to run - the bank, the post office, grocery store. Oh yeah, and the house needs to be cleaned too!
Treat - Have you checked out the dollar tree for decorations or small student gifts? There is so much stuff in there (and everything is only $1!!). If I still had my classroom, I would definitely buy some decorations, and maybe some gifts (I know some students don't celebrate Halloween, but everyone appreciates a cute gift!).
