all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey...

Today seems to be ushering in all of the negatives of fall. It's cold, rainy, windy...ugly. It's no mistake that a holiday that celebrates the death and rebirth of the earth is this month. It looks dead outside. I had a friend that loved days like this. It's probably my mood, but I personally hate it and would rather be under the covers than anywhere else. I like Halloween...I like being able to wear a sweatshirt and I love seeing the colors in the trees. But, it means that winter is just around the corner and the cold, slushy streets of Chicago aren't much to look forward to. I always end up huddled in front of a space heater with an electric blanket. (I have to buy a new one this year) I should look towards the romanticism of it all. Snuggling under warm blankets sharing hot chocolate, watching a scary movie. We've already been to a haunted house...last weekend, in fact. Very Fun!! Also took in the Scarecrow Festival in St. Charles. Very nice!! Winter also means there will be lights on the trees soon...and I like that. The holidays should be nice this year. Baby is old enough to walk around and open her own presents. I'm excited for that. I'm ready for family time. I'm ready for us to be together at eachother's homes.

Today's just a bad day...and I'm ready for a shot of holiday cheer. It'd be nice to jump into a chalk drawing today...or be sucked up by a cloud and thrown into a technicolored world. My mental health is definitely affected by the weather. A nice fire in a fire place would be nice. Maybe I could find some fire wood for tonight.

Random thought:
I wish my grandparents were still around. I could use a long vacation at their house right now. Instant happiness.

Or...if the baby could come visit...she makes me happy, too.
Or, if I got flowers today. That'd be nice. I don't even care who they're from.

This blog is depressing, wow...sorry about that.

Two Boys and a Girl

I live pretty much like every single girl in Chicagoland. I have the best of both worlds. Gay roommate and fantastic boyfriend. The three of us get along so well! We all pretty much live together in harmony. We have family nights watching House on Tuesdays, Project Runway on Wednesdays, Grey's Anatomy on Thursdays...Friday is family date night where we all go out to eat and to a flick. We normally go for the horror genre, but have been forced into other genres recently. The boys like Chipotle...but we rarely eat there. I'm spoiled. We go where I want to go, usually. It's a nice ritual. In the theatre, J is always on my left and D is on my right. After the movie, we all join into a very juvenile game of, "let's scare the shit out of eachother." Someone flips off the lights...the others crawl around on the floor finding a spot to jump out of and I scream--every time. J hides under blankets in corners or makes some horrible face in the mirror behind me in the bathroom. It's stupid, but we find it very amusing. (We keep doing it!!) hehehe. I'm surprised we haven't built a blanket fort in the living room. We all talk like idiots though. RIDICULOUS! It's almost too embarrassing to admit. I started it...just talking like children. "yummy, yummy!!" "Daddy" "Papa D" (take note that we have a kitty that is our baby) Meryle is a nice addition. She's named after Meryle Streep. D and I got her soon after I moved in. It's crazy how much that cat loves Jason, though. I've never seen anything like it. We might end up taking her because Dustin says he can't bear the idea of taking her away from him. heheh.

Our llittle family is breaking up soon, though. How sad. Dustin and I move move back to the city mid-November. J and I are trying to figure out a way to stay out in the burbs, though. It's just easier. Maybe we're just getting older. The commute is driving us nuts. The winter in the city is hard. Besides, we just see each other more if we live out here. (anyway, got side tracked)
Just wanted to put down some's been fun, but I suppose I have other fun things to look forward to!
