I don't think there's anything more painful in life than dealing with teenagers, and dealing with 2 at one time is excruciating( I was dealing with 3, but the oldest has moved out(which is probably a good thing, because one of the 3 might not still be breathing.)  I swear, if it's not one thing, it's another...."I don't feel good,  do I have to go to school?"  "I can't clean my room, I have too many clothes."  "My ovaries hurt, can I stay home?"  Her-" I want to join the Marines."  Me-"You can't join the Marines, you have asthma."  Her-"Why can't you ever support me?"  "I need gas money."  " I need minutes on my phone." Her-"should I apply to colleges?"  Me- "Well, you can apply, but most likely won't be accepted because you don't have 2 years of the same foreign language." Her-"So you're saying I'm not smart enough to go to college?"  Yet another way I'm not supportive of her and am doing my best to ruin her life.  ARRRRGGGHHHHHH! 

I do not recall being this difficult as a teenager, and I'm pretty certain I wasn't, because I spent most of my time just trying to keep my head down and not rock the boat.  I'm not sure who's teenage years I'm being punished for, but I think I've done my time.  Can't a girl catch a break?

I love, love, love Fall, and am so ready for it to finally arrive. 
Here's what I love about Fall.
Seeing the leaves change
Putting up the Halloween decorations
The crisp, cool days
Carmel apples
Pumpkin Patch and Leaves scented oil from Bath and Body Works
Halloween candy
The smell of leaves outside
Being able to make soup, chili, and stew again
Leaving the windows open
and most of all....
The Fair!
