So let's dive right in.
Last weekend we went to a Halloween party. I used my wedding dress with some wings as a costume and called myself mother nature... here to bring you your monthly gift. My dress was made to look like something out of the 20's, you can hardly tell that it's a wedding dress and it's been wadded up in the top of my closet forever now. I don't have any pics. Sorry. Long story short, I got really drunk on beer and coffee flavored Patron. I usually don't like tequila, but I was already lit so it wasn't bad at all. Pretty good actually. I ate a whole bunch of unhealthy party food and smoked 3/4 of a cigarette. I only smoked from the age of 20 (weird time to start, I know) til 24 so I like to think that my addiction level is somewhat low. Thus, that loosey was gross (TWSS).
A couple of days later it was Halloween and we took the kids trick or treating.
And then we came home and for the next three days I ate their candy. I can't believe that I... eh hem... I mean they didn't get, not one Chick-O-Stick!!!
I've been eating a metric shit ton of Quinoa lately. We've been doing the burritos a lot, and the Thai fried recipe, and now we have added chili to our quinoa cook book. And it is soooooo delicious!
I deserve a pat on the back because this morning I actually pulled my lazy ass out of bed and went for a 4 mile run. Damn straight. I think the time change helped because technically I was waking up at 6:30 not 5:30, but there was no 6:30 traffic. Make sense? Fun Fact: A guy at work the other day said "Remember, remember the 5th of November" to which I replied "Oh yeah, we have to switch our clocks back tonight". If you laugh, it means you've seen a movie that I have not.
This is all great, but the biggest news of my week is this:
My husband just got a new job (same company) where he will be working for the service office as a planner for new stores and remodeling old ones. This job is almost 90% travel. He will be working out of Philidelphia a little bit, and then traveling around the country. Once a week or so, he can work from a store that is close to "home". This means that we can relocate back to Texas and he can work out of that store. He starts his new job in a couple of weeks and THIS means that instead of going back to Dallas for Christmas, I could be going back to stay.
Reasons to hold off moving
- I haven't yet prepared myself to part with the trees, mountains, waterfalls, and everything else that I love about the Carolina's.
- Packing! Ugh!
- I really love my job. It's so much fun and I feel like I just got started.
- Uh, hello stupid. You're husband won't be here to watch the kids so if you want to keep working that cool job, you'll be paying $2 an hour to do it.
- We're already going to Texas. May as well save ourselves a drive.
- No need to string this out. Just get it done.
