I think this is my first post in October. And the month is practically over. Today I was gazing at a colleague’s well manicured nails. I hid mine beneath my books and wondered how she found the time to get her nails done, while I barely took time to eat lunch.
I think one of my other colleagues showed up in a new outfit. Nice boots, crisp pants and a sweater that revealed it was fall by its orange color. I wondered why I never seemed to have time to shop.
A coach shared with us that it was “hell week” at her gym. This meant something about hard workouts and harder diets. I asked myself why I hadn’t made it to the gym in over a week.
Why is it the tail end of October and I can’t seem to recollect when it ever even started? Pumpkins just sprung out of the ground I guess. The costumes at stores? I thought those were just kids fancy dinner clothes…
Perhaps by the time I come up for air again, we will be well past Thanksgiving and careening towards Christmas. Suppose I should sit back and enjoy the ride.
