Summer is fading away, even though it's technically now "fall." These surprisingly warm afternoons are greeted by chilly nights. No more strapless dresses or walks in flip flops for this girl. And apparently a vicious, change-of-season cold has graced me with it's presence. But the picturesque blue skies, like the ones from that mid-September afternoon, still greet me when I leave at lunchtime to walk Louie. I feel like fall is a transition time. A new beginning arrived for me as I started this amazing new job, but my mindset has also changed. I've lost focus and worry about how clean, or not clean, the apartment has gotten. I've paid more attention to M and Louie. And I'm consciously trying, but mostly failing, at giving my undivided attention to just one thing at a time (i.e., not checking my phone constantly while watching TV or a movie with M). It's not been an easy feat, but I'm trying. That's what counts, right? As summer fades for you, how are you doing with the transition? Both with the weather and mentally...
