The what happened to August, wait, it's actually September??? Update

July was pretty great and seemed really long.
August was very busy but not in as much of a memorable way as July and woosh, it's gone.
Apparently now it's September? Not sure when that happened.

On the financial front, I cannot seem to keep on top of tracking spending when I'm really busy. I haven't even looked at August's number's yet (seeing as I just realized it was over) and I really don't want to. Sigh.

We're still enjoying the great outdoors and it's been staying really warm here but we haven't been out nearly as much since it's (as we call it) yellow jacket season now. Those darn wasps are out in full force. Luckily little Abe hasn't been stung this year (and he is far past the bee phobia) but I was stung a few weeks back. Darn that thing hurt for like 12 hours.

We really enjoyed summer this year. The sun, warmth, water, and gardening just to name of few of the joys were fabulous but I'm giddy about autumn's rapid approach. Fall is my favorite time of year. I missed both strawberry picking and blueberry picking season this year but I am bound and determined to take little Abe to an apple orchard now that apple season is upon us. It's been a few years since we went and he doesn't remember ever going. This year we must go!

Back to the crazy that is our awesome life!
Hopefully I'll check back sooner than later.


  1. I was wondering where you were! I too had a poor month for tracking spending in August. I use the laptop to record things but had to buy a new pooter and took a couple of weeks to get it sorted. I get so annoyed with myself when I don't know exactly where the money went!

    1. I'm pretty annoyed with this month's spending (or lack of concentration on it) but I really struggle with balancing so much all at once.
      Too bad about your laptop but glad you got a new computer!

  2. I enjoyed reading and seeing pictures of your summer. I am pretty sure it is still summer here since it is supposed to be in the mid to high 90's this week.

    1. Thank-you.
      It's REALLY hot here today too. Summer apparently came back (well technically it is still summer). I'm just really looking forward to autumn now.

  3. Don't feel bad, I don't want to look at my August numbers either!

  4. I've always wanted to go apple picking! I need to make that happen. We've also talked about going to a pumpkin patch this year. We shall see! :-)
