So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Brrrr!!!!!

One thing about Texas that befuddles newcomers (and even us lifelong residents - minus the 14 months I lived 30 miles north in beautiful Oklahoma) is the weather.

Yesterday, it was a gorgeous 72 degrees when I sent my children to school in the morning. This morning, it was 37 degrees when I sent them to school! Yep, that is Texas in the fall. I knew it was going to be bad when I woke up this morning and was freezing despite wearing pajamas and being covered up with a thermal blanket and a quilt (with flannel on one side!).

But, that's ok. I actually like this kind of weather. I mean, where else can you have sweatshirts and shorts next to each other in your closet and legitimately not know which you'll be wearing next week or on Thanksgiving? That is sort of cool to me. *get it? Cool? Pun?* Never mind.

    Yeah, that was one of my least favorite parts of living in Texas. Considering I was living in the college dorms at the time and it took them 3 DAYS to switch things over from heating to air conditioning or vice versa.

    I hate having to run the heater at night, then the A/C during the day. *sighs*

    Although, Friday night football games are so much better when it's chilly. :)
