and she ate apples on the steps of the church while we waited for mass to start and she told me “that spot hurts” (pointing to the back of her head) “it hurts on my back chin” – I love when they come up with stuff like this.

So it really is October and it really is going to be fall now. I can tell that the light has changed, it’s more golden. There is a chill to the air these days (the overnight low is 37!). I’m making this apple cake
today yesterday (that cake is so good and so easy), the girls were off of school for conferences (we were going to go to the zoo but it’s cold), so we stayed home and took it easy.

Speaking about conferences. Everyone is doing well academically. Socially there is a problem in one of the grades with a lot of the girls. So my girl is part of the problem but not the only problem. I look around at all these other families and I think that they look like they have it all figured out. They look like they are making things work, their kids are awesome, their lives sparkle. I have to remind myself I’m not alone or I start to feel crazy.

I’m finding a lot of ideas for freezer crock pot meals on pinterest/blogs. Do you have any you like? Is this a terrible idea? I’m completely unmotivated to cook between our activities after school/early evening and the toddler who screams at my leg any time I’m in the kitchen.

I bought this scarf Thursday. This cold weather has me absolutely freezing and I won’t warm back up until spring. I asked the husband what he thought of it and he said “it looks like a blanket” – ok then.

I’ve always dreamt of living in NYC after we first traveled there from CT (where we lived 2003-2004). We took the train in and we stepped out of Grand Central and my jaw must have just hit the floor. It was love at first sight. This blog makes living in NYC with kids look like fun (even though I know it’s outrageously expensive and our four kids are almost unheard of there).

I made this thai chicken salad a few times and it was really delicious.
I took Cora to piano and waited in the car (and read a book). I got home and Kelly was worn out and said “I don’t know how you’ve done this all week, I need a drink!” and I agreed. Baby getting molars = need for a drink, often.
