1. Why does it feel like we skipped fall and jumped into winter? It is so cold today. And wet. Hopefully it goes back to being fall soon. We haven't had a free moment since getting back from the beach to enjoy the pretty fall colors and smells.

2. I am reading J.D. Salinger's "9 Stories" and loving them. Salinger loves symbolism, and reading his stories is like working out puzzles. It's silly, but I get great satisfaction out of reading a story, mulling over it for an hour or two, then looking up the spark notes online to see if my conclusions or assumptions have any merit. Cough*nerd*ahem.

3. I really need to just give up sugar. I am so addicted. (Why am I confessing this?) I have no trouble giving up any other food, but my sweet tooth is mean and stubborn. But I know I will feel so much better, in and out, if I give it up for a while. Anyone have tips for giving it up? Is slowly weaning yourself off better in the long run than just going cold turkey?

4. I know she's odd, (aren't we all?) but I am obsessed with Fiona Apple lately. What an interesting character she is. Her anxiety, sadness and quirks come across so strongly to me in her music and they are my own. I found this interview to be fascinating and rather heartbreaking.

5. I need to get my bangs trimmed.

6. I wish you could hear Olive sing "The Bare Necessities." (She says "bay-uh ne-seh-seh-tewees. And with great dramatic flair. It is hysterical.)

7. Matt got me hooked on that silly "Temple Run" game on my phone.

8. In just 6 days I am getting on an airplane with my two babies and no husband to fly to my parent's house for a week. I don't mind planes too much, but flying alone with two little kids? I am already dreading the evil stares from fellow travelers.
