Autumn? Already?!?

I have absolutely nothing to write about. Actually, I do, I'm just not in the mood to write. I think of things to write about almost every day and certainly once a week when my snail-mail letter comes from Barbara, but I never want to sit down and actually compose anything. Maybe next week.

But since I'm here...

Everyone is doing well here. I don't know where the summer went. I didn't do everything I wanted to do, and yet I still feel like I did too many things. It was a busy summer without accomplishing what I personally wanted to accomplish. I think I did too many things for other people and not enough for myself. Well, no, not really. I enjoyed what I did that others wanted to do and won't call that doing too much for others; I just wish I'd done more of what I wanted to do as well. Selfish, aren't I?

Thomas is going to need knee surgery, so we're trying to plan it for January. That will be after deer season and during the coldest part of the year. I need to look into his disability benefits at work to make sure we do everything correctly.

Eler Beth is LOVING her job and staying busy. We gave her a big graduation party in August that was a hit.  Andrew and Alexandria are still a couple and doing well. I'm fine. Mom will be 91 in December and is doing well. 

And that's about it for now. Happy Autumn!

I had a giggle out of planning surgery around deer season. It would go that way in this part of the country too. Hope Thomas does well and happy autumn to you too.


It's not selfish to have wanted to do more for yourself. maybe you can make time for some of those things this autumn. I know how BAD knees can really put a dent in your life. Hope the surgery for your husband goes smoothly. January sounds like a good time to have it. Glad everything else is going smoothly.

Every time I get the urge to write I come across to Blogger Dashboard. I then get engrossed in some of the entries and, (my good excuse), I run out of time. It's no good having knee surgery if it doesn't fit in with your own requirements.
This summer, here in England, has been full of sunshine and enjoyable memories for me too. It pays to be busy as you can fit more into your life.
I am so pleased to hear how Eler Beth is getting along in her job.
Your Mom will be 91 in December? Congratulations to her. That augers well for you too Lori. Keep up the good work of making an entry. I might just do one myself one day. lol
