I learned that the month passed by too fast!
I learned that not all gold spray paints are created equal and that there is one that I am so obsessed with that I am actually going out and looking for things to spray paint. If you are a person that loves immediate results (like what a room looks like when you make a bed, or vacuuming…) then you too can get the same addiction I have. Spray painting everything in your path.
Why yes I am spray painting all my pumpkins…….for real!
I learned that not all fresh made pastas are created equal at Whole Foods. I served paste with parmesan to my family and we all agreed it was not worth it! Just because it’s in a cold case and packaged pretty and 8.99 for a small serving doesn’t mean it’s good. Shocking, right?
I was once again reminded that you get what you pay for. I bought cabinets on sale from Home Depot. That was the easy part. What has come since my September 1st purchase has been time spent delaying delivery since we were out of town. Only to find out they canceled delivery all together. Rescheduled delivery and they dropped them in my alley. If you don’t live in Denver then you don’t know that we have nonstop roofing going on. Hence lots of strangers coming and going. So when I got home to find all my new cabinets blocking my garage and had three different people ask if they could take my cabinets……let’s just say NEVER AGAIN.
I’ve learned that a schedule can be the joy of our household. We have one night a week right now that is just insane. It’s nonstop. I’m racing all over town to get everyone in the right place. But, joy of joys it’s become such a happier night knowing that we have to get homework done from 3:45 to 4:15. We read in the car. We do spelling on the drive home. Thank you for the invention of an ipad! It’s just a practice round anyway, but we are making the most of our time. Religion has even made it’s way into our rotation. The work book for religion is daunting to me! But, so far so good!
I learned how to make the correct breakfast burrito. I’m told they were good. I hope so. I know one thing for certain, the breakfast potatoes I made to go with them are now in my cooking rotation and will be for the next twenty years at least.
I also learned that my kids are ready for card games and I am so excited. We are this much closer to gin rummy tournaments and I am beside myself!
I can’t say I am happy that September is over. We had so many amazing events last month. But, I am looking forward to a busy 31 days of October. I’m ready for cooler weather (just not snow!) I’m hoping we have a longer fall than summer. Summer never seemed to kick start. I do love crisp mornings and fall colors. Everything is coming up pumpkin flavored too!
Happy Fall Y’all!
