Day 1010: Fall

Today started out fine enough.  Although, Darling A has been back to her newborn sleeping schedule for I don't know how many nights now and I. Am. Tired.

But, I dragged my buns out of bed and made it to one of the most challenging yoga classes ever.  But challenging in a doable way.  I felt really good after and it was a nice Joyful Moment.

Then my youngest two and I headed to the Farmer's Market.  This ended up being chaos because it was a game day and people were flooding the area so they could tailgate for 7 hours before the game started.  And for once, I'm not exaggerating in the least.

So, finding a parking spot was a bit harrowing, but we managed at last and were even blessed to find one not too far away from the market.  Getting my veggies was a Joyful Moment.  Fighting a crazy Baby B to get back in the stroller so I wouldn't lose him (Darling A was in the Moby wrap) and then pushing him out while he screamed at the top of his lungs past hundreds of tailgaters was significantly less Joyful.

There was a brief moment of silence between his screams on the way home when I just got that nice "fall feeling"--you know what I'm talking about?  The air is cooling, people were playing football, and it just started feeling like Fall.  My favorite season.  So, that was a beautiful moment.  Until the screams started up again.

And then, today was one of the days when my postpartum-hormones-induced-anxiety got the better of me, so we'll just leave of there.

At least things started okay.

Did you go early enough to get doughnuts???

My JM was visiting with my sister-in-law, one of the best visits we've ever had.

Mom--No, I kind of lost the desire for the doughnuts. Funny, huh? And I want to hear about it!
