Happy Halloween Everyone!
In honor of this spooktakular holiday lets do some randoms......
If you know me from the FB you know last night around 8pm I was in line at Wal-Mart buying pumpkin carving kits. What you don't know is what I was outfitted in.
Hot pink flip flops.
Bright Red 2007 Phillies T-Shirt.
Dark Blue Fleece.
I have no shame.
The best part? I was dressed better than most of the people that were standing in line with me.
I found out the other day that a guy I dated, briefly, in high school got married.
To a guy.
A Hot guy.
The pictures were GORGEOUS!!
My Starbucks' cup this morning had the same quote as the one from last week. I thought that maybe they just produced sleeves and sleeves of the same quote and they hadn't run out yet. I bought coffee for a friend this morning, too. His cup, totally different.
What are the odds?
I've decided that if my husband were to ever leave me I would rather he leave me for another man than another woman.
I've found this to be the consensus with my co-workers, as well, about their spouses.
Everyone around me is pregnant. Literally. Two family members. 4 or 5 friends. All of them. PREGNANT.
I am staying FAR away from my husband. And I may double up on bcps each day!
I started my Christmas shopping this week. Because FYI Christmas is less than 60 days away. Actually as of this moment right now, Christmas is 54 days 16 hours and 50 minutes away.
Election day is Tuesday. Not only am I excited to bring my son into the voting booth with me but I get the day off! Bonus all around!!
Make sure you VOTE!!
With Christmas being so close and all, I've started the Christmas music.
That's right. You read that correctly. It puts me in a good mood so I play it!
I was up until 12:30 this morning making cupcake pops that look like pumpkins for my kids to take to daycare today. Then I got up at 4:30 to go to work. I am tired but running off some MAJOR caffeine.
Do you remember when it used to cost $20 to fill your tank and you thought that was a lot? Last night it cost me $40 bucks to fill my mini van and I was so happy that I almost got out of the car and kissed the gas attendant. Almost.
I didn't pay a cent for either of my kids' Halloween costumes this year and I am so unbelievably happy about that. I cannot even tell you!!
After wallowing for a week, I've been doing pretty good at staying positive. Actually, staying neutral. I don't think about it. Or I try not to and it appears to be working.
I keep busy and when I think about it, I try to be really positive.
What I've discovered as an added bonus is that I have some of the most wonderfully supportive, funny and compassionate friends and family in the world. I knew that but this whole experience has just reaffirmed it. I am incredibly lucky.
We were supposed to go apple picking with friends this past weekend but it rained all day Saturday. We had a party instead. I am so glad it rained.
I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving. I love the food. But this year we're taking the boy into the city for the parade and I cannot wait. This was something I did as a child with my dad and cousins and I loved it. I want him to love it, too.
Truth be told, I am not looking forward to tonight. I can't wait to see the kids all dressed up in their respective, free, costumes. But I really don't feel like Trick or Treating or dealing with the candy high that will inevitably ensue!
Have a great weekend! Happy Halloween! Happy November! Happy Thoughts all around!!
