I love Fall.
It’s my FAVORITE time of year.
The weather gets crisp.
The leaves turn color.
Pumpkin spice everything is everywhere.
And BEST OF ALL, it’s my BIRTHDAY!
In less than two weeks I’ll turn (gasp) 45.
I’m going with friends and family to see “Bohemian Rhapsody” – the Freddie Mercury biopic.
I can’t wait!
Everyone is dressing up like 80’s rock stars – Cindy Lauper, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Bono, Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson. . .
I am going as Freddie Mercury, in his yellow Wembley Stadium jacket.
I even got a little patch of hair for my chest and a short brown wig to make me look like Freddie Mercury.
But since that’s probably insufficient to transform me into Freddie, I also bought a mask of his face.
I’m SO EXCITED!
I clearly do not suffer from seasonal affective disorder.
I get excited and happy instead of moody and blue.
I already bought my Christmas cards and I’m planning Christmas presents AS WE SPEAK.
The big news, of course, is that my oldest son has joined the Army Reserves as Military Police.
He starts boot camp on December 31, 2018.
Even though I am excited for him, I will also miss him terribly.
But that’s a small price to pay to see him launch himself successfully into a career.
Happy Fall, y’all!
