I have always hated the month of October…I know,i know, some of you are gasping at the mere thought of me not enjoying this orange themed, semi brisk(unless in Texas–then 90 degree) weather, filled with candy, costume shopping, and those pumpkin spiced latte’s. Despite the leaves somewhat changing over here in the south, the heat has never picked up on the fact that October is in fact a fall month. I still feel summer as the heat and humidity grasp on for dear life as Fall tries to nudge its way in to our happy open arms. That on top of the fact that this has just always remained an unlucky month for me, makes me dread October! Every year I see status after status after glee filled chatting about the wonderful-ness that is this tenth month. And here I am…bah humbugging the thought of the long 31 day journey October always gives me. I started noticing its perpetual drain on my life in early high school and it just got worse in college when the dreaded midterms added to my constant affliction of this month! And now, as a mother,i figured the cute itsy bitsy costumes would cure this dreaded disease! But alas, more than half way through the month and I just feel its slow drag as I await the cuteness that is a baby’s first Halloween! One joyous event of all of October. 30 days of cranky to get one day of dressed up cuteness. I do not enjoy the color orange, other states constant bragging of nice cool weather, costume shopping’s expense, nor the taste of a pumpkin spiced latte….my point is…October, you are scarier in more ways than one, and I wish you hurry a little faster out that cobwebbed door, and let the skeleton hit you on the pumpkined butt on the way out!
