Two weeks have gone by and I am looking everywhere to see where they went…

The week after my pants were scared off watching The Walking Dead was horrible.  Everything that could go wrong at work did.  My energy was super low and I was having trouble sleeping.  And I was PMS’ing hard-core.  I had Friday that week off and I needed to take of some cores, and then I was going to work on bringing some serenity into my life for a few days.

It worked.  Last weekend I recharged and felt great.  My work week last week was super busy, but a good busy.  You know, the type of busy where you feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of it.  I was stressed out.  I felt back to my normal self.

I’ve been running for the past 2 weeks.  I was following the Couch to 5K program until I ran the 5K a few weeks ago.  I realized that since I can run 5K, then I should just run for 45 minutes and not worry about how far I go.  Everyday, I run a bit faster and further.  It feels really great.  My mom is really getting into running as well.  We have decided to run on the river every Sunday morning.

I have today off and I’m straight chilling until 4 when I will go to my mom’s and give out candy.  I love doing this.  I never get kids at my house and she gets loads.  It’s so much fun.  The only thing that’s annoying is when parents bring their babies up to trick or treat.  It’s obvious that the parents want the candy since their 6 month old can’t eat it.  I also get annoyed at the kids who think it’s okay to not dress up and that just because they come to the house, we should give them candy.  I don’t want to give them candy, but my mom is afraid they’ll come back and vandalize the house.  Other than those types of people, it’s a great time.

Happy Halloween!

  1. I think the same thing about babies being brought up. Was just complaining about that. i didn’t take my daughter until she was almost 2 1/2 years old. In my mind, if I took her earlier then that, the candy really would have been for me and I’m not too cheap to just go out and buy my own!

  2. You know what? I feel EXACTLY the same way about parents and babies. Yeah, like a baby is eating a Snickers bar!!! LOL. And, yes, I agree about the non-costume thing also. What also bugs me is when kids look like they’re in their 20s and are still dressing up. Uh, you’re an adult now, go buy your own candy!!!

    • I’m happy to report that we only had 4 kids show up with no costume and no infant treaters. We had a lot of older teenagers, so next year I’m dressing up as a flesh eating zombie and scaring the shit out of them.

  3. We have had all infant trick or treaters and it’s just now dark. SERIOUSLY. And in other news, my kid refuses to get dressed to go anywhere and is on the couch watching The Amazing World of Gumball. More candy for the teethers.

  4. You know, I carved the pumpkin, had stickers on the windows, a scary skull on the front door and I was dressed up too – with lolly bags ready-to-go (along with other noise-makers in case I ran out of lollies) and not a single kid showed up! I felt really left out of the whole thing. 😦
