***Linking up with Mamakat today: 1.) Happy Fall! The first day of Fall was September 22nd, share something fall related you did.
I’ve been totally exhausted lately, as I’ve told you. It’s made me a bit emotional. There have also been a couple of personal issues that have been making me emotional. I’ve also overextended myself because I’m an idiot. Matt’s been really grouchy too because he’s a.) exhausted and b.) overextended.
Last Sunday was particularly awful. I think I cried most of the day. I did go for a long bike ride on my way to take some photos for a friend. It was really chilly and I needed gloves and it felt so good to be riding in the crisp, cool air. I came home, took a hot shower, put on comfy sweats and made myself a cup of coffee with pumpkin spice creamer. I went out on our super chilly three-season porch, put my hood up, drank my coffee and worked on school stuff all afternoon.
It was a strange day but, oddly enough, it truly felt like fall. September is typically a really rough month for me. Add in two new jobs and high emotions and it’s a whole new level of funkiness. But as I was sitting in my comfy fall clothes, freezing my butt off on the porch, drinking my coffee, I came out of my funk and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon with Matt and the kids. I guess I just needed a day to or two to cry and wallow and snap out of it. Sometimes that’s exactly what you need, right? Now it truly feels like fall.
How did you spend the first day of fall?
