The days are getting shorter. Summer is drawing to a close, and fall is finally here.

I’m happy about the excuses to get out of the house (football! holidays! parties!) but I’m also growing keenly aware of how much shorter I have each evening to do all of those need to dos during the fading daylight hours.

So, every evening, you’ll be able to spot me in a frenzy trying to get home before the night rolls in, hoping to get one more drop of paint on the exterior before it’s winter.

Because not only will I be completely over the new-ness of the new colors of the house – I’ll have improved my list of excuses with the ultimate trump:  It’s too cold to do it today.

So I’m hoping that in these next two weeks I can complete the stoop area enough to give it a “done for now” mental check mark and retreat inside before the Excuse Monster wins another round. And trust me, that bugger is convincing. I’m off to a good start!
