There are many things I like about the fall season, and many things I do not. I LOVE the fact that bugs go bye-bye, that just makes my skin tickle! I also love the changing colours and the smell. True the smell of summer is a good one and the smell of spring is pretty good too. But with the fall there's a coolness to the air and you can smell that. Well at least I think you can. And boy does it smell good.

But one of the things that I don't like goes hand in hand with the above mentioned. The cooling temperatures. It's not quite cool enough yet, but I'm sure the time is quickly approaching for me to close my window at night. I hate the feeling of being cut off. I love to be able to hear the sounds of the night.

I never mentioned this before, but back in June we had our van broken into. For some reason one of the doors was left unlocked, so it was easy access. It was the sound of the van starting that got me out of bed (it's not the quietest starting van in the world) and running to the window I saw the lights and immediately phoned Steve (who was working that night). What happened next was really cool. So I had Steve on the phone and he was immediately phoning the RCMP here in town. Not even 5 minutes later, we saw 2 guys out front sneaking towards our house. I told them where the van was and they very stealth like, made their way out back, found the van empty, secured the area and came back into our yard. It was all very cop-ish, and quite exciting. If it wasn't for the fact that stuff actually got stolen, it would've been a really neat night. Anyway, going back to my original story...

So I'm not a fan of having my window shut and my "ears" closed. I'll enjoy the time I have left and then have to be a little more alert when it's time to close up for winter. Which really shouldn't be a problem since I'm up every 15 mins to pee!!

being pregnant

Lately I've been thinking of how much I complain about being pregnant. You know, my hips hurt, my feet swell, I hate the sound of my hip bones popping, the constant heartburn, the gagging when you brush your teeth, etc (the list could go on, but I think you get the picture). And in the back of my mind I'm always reminded of friends who can't get pregnant and I try to shut up. I'm sure they'd love to feel their bones popping and the pain in the chest when you sit down 'cos the baby is squished up against something internally that causes pain. And in light of what my MIL is going thru (sure she's annoying as anything, but nobody deserves that much pain) there's no way I should be complaining at all. So lesson learned...there's always someone worse off than you. You should be happy.

Still tho'. I can honestly say that I'll be glad when it's all over and I'm glad that it should (in theory) be the last one.
