Happy Monday to you. Hope everyone had a fun Halloween weekend.
Before I tell you about mine, let me just indulge in a mini-rant here. Last night, Halloween night, October 31, we were watching a bit of TV and a Christmas commercial came on. Couldn't they (the advertisers, the networks) have waited at least until the calendar rolled over to November?
Oh well, I'll look on the bright side. Today and tomorrow are the only days we have to endure both Christmas and political campaign commercials.
OK. Now that I have that of my chest, I'll give you what you've all been waiting for -- my family in dorky costumes.
Yeah, that's us, decked out as Shaggy, Velma and Daphne. We seemed to be a bit of a hit at the party, although I thought both the Oompa-Loompa and Wolverine costumes were much better. Unfortunately I can't post those pictures since those people don't know about my blog and haven't given me permission to post them.
Our weekend consisted of getting read for the party on Saturday, attending the party on Saturday night, sleeping in on Sunday morning, doing a little cooking and cleaning during the day on Sunday and trick-or-treating with Kat on Sunday night. Oh, also, spending some time making disgusting noises by pressing some homemade slime into a cup. We're nothing if not sophisticated around here.
Things should calm down a little for me this week. Kat has a full week of school (finally) and I have a quick doctor appointment to get my thyroid checked again. Friday evening we are having our friends John and Trish over for supper. We've been to their house five or six times and it seems like we're letting them do all the hosting, but it took three attempts to invite them to our house. They both have such big families that there is always something going on for them, and it's usually at their house. I don't really mind, though; it means less work and more fun for us.
One more thing -- I am going to host another great giveaway this week! I haven't decided which day yet, so be sure to check back.
If you have time this morning, tell us about your weekend and what you have planned for the next few days.
