Happy Monday!  Today’s Monday Manifest is things September.  September always makes me happy because it means fall is almost here – my favorite season of them all!  Football, bonfires, jeans, leaves changing, Halloween… I love it.  September also makes me sad because it was the month my brother was killed, though… so it is bittersweet at times.  For this last Monday Manifest in August, I give you Things September…

Monday Manifest: Things September

  1. Back to school – I never realized how worn out summer makes parents.  I have been waiting impatiently for the kids to go back to school, but because of remodeling the school it has been pushed back until mid-September.  (Why didn’t that ever happen when I was in school?!)  I am ready for them to go back though… they need to burn some of that excess energy doing something productive.
  2. Myrtle Beach – Because of the late school start and because I like to crash my BFF’s vacation, we decided to use the extra time to travel to Myrtle Beach for vacation.  This is our first “real” vacation as a family.  The kids and I have never seen the ocean and I don’t know who is more excited – me or them.
  3. Fantasy Football – Our chick league draft is this week and I am super excited… but, I sure hope I do better than I did last year!
  4. “Real” Football – Here we go Steelers, here we go!  Can’t wait for the regular season to start to see my Steelers play again!
  5. September 22nd – This is the day my brother was killed in a car accident.  Its always one of those days I just wish I could hide under the covers and forget.  More recently though, I do actually go to work and not take a vacation day to stay home and be miserable.
  6. Don’s Birthday – I am not allowed to tell you how old he is, but last year was a big one and we had a surprise party for him.  His birthday is the 4th… so, Happy Birthday!
  7. Mums – The mums are starting to bloom and I love them!  My favorites are the burgundy ones, but I like the yellow ones too.  (Hint, hint…)
  8. Cooler weather – I know we usually have a spat of warm weather during “Indian Summer”, but it is always short lived and cooler weather is on its way.
  9. American Childhood Cancer Month – why is this important?  Because in the next couple of weeks I will be sharing when Graeter’s Ice Cream will be giving away free ice cream!  Yeah, I know… right!
  10. September 11th – the day our world changed forever.
