SLIPPIN', SLIPPIN', SLIPPIN' INTO THE FUTURE*
Oy, where did that week go? Where did all the weeks go? I know, I know, I talk about how times flies all the time; you'd think I'd be used it by now, but no, it's equally surprising ALL THE TIME. All the time that disappears.

It's been raining and/or drizzling for days on end and my hair is reacting as you'd expect: like a crazy person. It's not just frizzy. It's SUPER FRIZZY. If I let it air-dry even a little bit after a shower, it looks like chestnut dandelion fuzz. Good thing it's not bird-nest-building season because I'd be in danger, if so. Prime material, I tell you.

So this weekend is already nearly over and where did the time go? Anders came home Friday, but I didn't even see him until nearly 11 p.m. because I was out to dinner with Debbie & Camilla. It was really fun but Camilla, that instigator, brought Tupperware catalogs and who can resist? Not a confirmed Tupperware addict like me. You'd think I already HAVE all the Tupperware, but there is always something that you need. Heh. We had a yummy sushi dinner and a lot of laughs and good conversation. I feel very lucky to have these two friends in my life!

Yesterday and today the time has mostly gone to cleaning house and laundry, and walking. And reading and playing stupid games on the iPad. I spent several hours purging my closet and dresser of clothes I never wear. I filled three bags and put aside a pile of smaller sizes to check on again in 6 months. All my clothes look very neat and tidy! Getting rid of old clothes is ridiculously difficult sometimes but it went pretty smoothly this once. There are still plenty of things in my closet that I can't wear anymore, that I can't seem to part with, but they still give me pleasure to look at instead of guilt, so I don't have much remorse in still holding on to them. I did part with a horrendously 80s Christmas sweater, though. It was the only thing that was a tough call, haha!

Anders did some quick research today on flights to Germany for our vacation between Christmas and New Year's with my brother and it's actually looking like it will be MUCH cheaper to drive. Even with gas prices, the ferry, and a possible overnight on the road. Yay for 11 hours in the car both ways in winter weather! NOT. All the millions of geese flying south over us in the past month are honking out a hard-winter-ahead warning. John says they've already had snow at the house and the mountains are white. Eek! Winter is coming.

And then, like everything else, it will zoom by and before you know it, spring will be here again! Zooooooooom.

There were flurries in the state today, but nothing that stuck, at least down in my corner of it, thank goodness. Fred only just took the fans out of the windows this evening; we haven't been running them recently, mind, but the fresh air has been nice until now. Things turned very cold yesterday, with the result that I had Fred turn the heat on for the season today, and I ordered some new sweaters online. Never shop for sweaters when you're cold -- it does bad things to the pocketbook! One of this color, and that color, and that other color, and ooo, look at that style, and...

Sweater shopping: slippery slope!

Time DOES fly! I hate to say I am actually wanting it to go fast. This semester (Hell, this YEAR) has been so difficult, I just want it over. I need a re-boot.

We have had a lovely fall day today, sunny, warm enough for tee-shirts, except for the wind. SO windy. I worked all day and got caught up for two out of my three classes, and then began reading my assignment that there is no way I will finish before it is due tomorrow. This has become routine. I never finish. It bothers me, but something has to give.

Sarah had surgery on Thursday and is doing well, she will try to go to school tomorrow.

Me? I am tired. Even after a four-day "weekend." I never thought I would say it, but I can't wait for Christmas!

You said the C WORD! *gasp*

Liz, it truly seems to me that time gets faster and faster the more I age.
Why aren't the scientists on to this!?

You said the "C" word. Again. Yikes.
I guess I need to get planning.

I know! IT'S COMING!!!

Well, on the bright side, you can start sorting through your smaller-sized summer clothes because - look - sunny days are just around the corner!

Hahaa! True!

You have a user-pic for every occasion, don't you!
