I made it!

I think that this is the first time, in many years, that I have been able to wait until after July to yearn for hot cocoa, sweater weather, and Christmas movies.

Oh, bummer...I just looked at the date at the bottom of my computer. Drat, I really thought I had made it. Oh well, there's always next year. I guess I should use this time wisely since I do have a few things to do before the most amazing time of the year arrives.

I need to get the sprinklers repaired (3rd time's the charm, right?)

I need to visit Logan at least one more time

I need to enjoy the fruits of my labors from the garden - finally

I need to soak up her blog on a daily basis - it's therapy for me

I need to decide on what Emily and I will be for Halloween - so little time

Oh, and I need to mention, for journal's sake, about our sprinklers/driveway problems... much, much more than a nightmare. Maybe someday, I'll find some humor in it to blog about it, heck, we even have the explosion on camera, but for now - it will just be 'the experience that shall not be named'.

However....I feel that I did one thing too many. I accidentally goosed my 16 year old nephew, Nate. I was mortified. I thought he was Zack and this was why:
