... I can't believe we're in November & most of our trees still have leaves... & they're GREEN. Haven't even changed color. It's been so warm out! Yesterday & today, in the 80's. I AM LOVING IT!!!!!!!! I am not the biggest fan of the cold so I'm rooting on the warmer temps for as long as possible.
... Coming back to work after vacation & getting caught up with a pile of work sort of drains the purpose of a vacation. You work so hard to get everything caught up to leave & then the pile is exhausting when you come back. Its why I really do like to take many long weekends throughout the year instead of a full week.
... I've come to find out while on vacation, if I didn't work, life would look so differently. 1. My house would stay clean. 2. My laundry bin would stay empty 3. I'd have dinner ready for Ricky every night when he got home... but also 4. I'd probably never put on anything but yoga pants & tennis shoes & 5. Make up would be a rarity.
oh, add in #6 - the dogs would be the happiest creatures on the face of the earth having someone home with them all the time.
... Halloween always has been my favorite holiday. All the candy. All the fun dressing up. & I used to do it UP when we lived in Louisville. But ever since we moved away from the 'big city' we get zero trick or treaters. Nada. Zilch. I always get so sad about that. I live vicariously through Facebook & Instagram & all the cute pictures everyone puts up. I need to start volunteering somewhere on Halloween that does something for kids so I can enjoy it & help others. I wonder if Children's Hospitals do anything.... mmm... an idea!
... my eye is about 50% better. Which means its still about 50% not better. Driving me nuts. Especially being back at work looking at paper all day & computer screens. He did say it would be 2-3 weeks & its just been a little over a week so trying to hang in there.
... people are just funny... or crazy. Take your pick. Did you see where people were expecting the Starbucks Red Cup to come out the day after Halloween & apparently they were using this new GREEN one. - which isn't even their "Holiday Cup" - just something to speak how we're all connected... blah blah blah... I guess trying to soothe everyone before the BIG VOTE next week. Anyways... people were freaking out & going nuts on Twitter about it. Like loosing their cool. Over a cup. Let's think back to last year & the Red Cup Fiasco that went nutso too. ... People. It's a cup. I never hear anyone complain about the 99 cent coffee cup you get from a gas station that never changes it up. Calm down everyone.
... OK - true confession time. I do like getting a Starbucks red cup.
That's marketing at its finest that people do freak out that much over a cup.
I'd be happy with the green cup too.
...Anyone else see pictures of friends with their Christmas trees already up? ... yep... its happening. I guarantee that by this weekend, a house down the street from us will have their Christmas tree lights on. They usually get them up the day after Halloween so it'll happen any second now. I personally put ours up the week of Thanksgiving but I can see wanting to enjoy the pretty decorations of Christmas as long as possible.
... I cant believe it. I didn't put up one fall decoration this year. Fall decorating is my favorite... & I totally failed at pulling out even the first pumpkin. Wait - I take that back. I do have my glass pumpkin full of candy in it - because - hello - Candy! But I didn't pull out one leaf garland, one jack o lantern, one porch decoration, one black cat or haunted house decoration - nothing. I guess that's what happens when life is so busy you cant even care about decorations.
... I dont want to talk about the time change this weekend. The sun setting at 5:30? ... call me when Spring comes back.
So what's on your chest to confess today?
