October is always hard.

Sometimes, even though I know I should have gone to bed well over an hour ago, I stay up trying to put off the inevitable turning of the Earth toward a new day, just because I know that the next two weeks are going to be very hard.

I know I'm going to pay for this later, because my body doesn't enjoy getting less than 8 hours of sleep (I know exactly how spoiled I am that I have the luxury of that much sleep...), but I can't seem to help it:

My brother and his family are moving several states away before Halloween and I don't want to think about it because it's so sad. He has to go where the work is, and the work just isn't here. I hope they come back someday--it's tearing me apart that I won't get to see them and their precious children every two days. I'm so glad I know that we ARE an eternal family no matter what distance this Earthly life puts between us!
