It's Fall...

It's Fall again. The weather is starting to get a little colder, days a little shorter, and I can feel my hibernation about to begin. Today is my first Saturday in a long time without (1) John being home, (2) being in Philly, or (3) being in Louisiana. I woke up not knowing what to do. Breakfast wasn't waiting for me, the dog(s) weren't fed, and I had no plans. It was a little weird. It also didn't help that the house was cold and I was struggling to find a sweatshirt. During my last 3 winters, I flew so much that I wasn't home that often, therefore I didn't need alot of winter clothes. Now that I'm starting to wear them everyday, I'm realizing just how little warm clothes I actually have. My ONE sweatshirt is from the Christmas Cruise 4 years ago. It's says "Carnival Cruise" on it. I have a couple thin sweaters and they have quarter length sleeves. That doesn't work for me. I need my full arm to be warm. Anyway, I decided to be productive today. All the Halloween decorations are finished. I actually had fun with this.
I was in a GO,GO,GO mood today. I went grocery shopping. Did all the laundry...
Set the table for Halloween...
and decided to cook. I'm not talking just make a meal, I made 3. I made crawfish fettuccine for me today, then I made spaghetti lasagna and sloppy joes to freeze for nights when I won';t want to cook. I also cleaned the house. So yeah, productive.

On other news, after many hours upon hours of discussion John and I have decided to part with Luke. We just can't afford him. We love him alot but we need to do whats best for him. I'm meeting a family tomorrow with other dogs and cats and a big house and yard. Hopefully it's the right fit but if not, then we'll keep looking. It's important to us that he goes to a great family and loving home. It was a hard decision but it's what needs to be done.

That's my Saturday. Its still cold and I'm told it's only going to get colder ( My blood isn't meant for cold weather. I also went to Yoga again, still fun. I'm still sore. That's all that's going on here but I'll blog more later!
