Fall Weather

Fall has definitely arrived here in Oxnard. The day was chilly, overcast and damp, and both Liam and I felt like we couldn’t wake up or get warm all day long. What is it about gray days that make it seem like 6:00 o’clock in the morning all day? It was definitely a hot-tea-and-comfort-food sort of day, which for me means carbs and sugar – not the sort of thing that fits into my healthy eating plan these days. Needless to say, it was a struggle.

I was working on a post today about my mom’s little Boston Terrier being attacked by the neighbor’s pit bulls and the amazing lack of help she’s received from the county Animal Control department, but I just couldn’t bring myself to finish it. I am so frustrated and discouraged with the situation right now! The callous disregard the local law enforcement and Animal Control officers have shown to her is so disheartening.

I saved a draft of my post and will hopefully be able to finish it tomorrow. When I started my blog, I promised to be honest and real in my posts and intend to do so with this one too. I just need to ruminate on it a little more before I post it.
