We finally turned the heat on in the house a few days ago. Set to 63 and staying there for the rest of the winter. No more walking around with freezing toes. I got very sick of having to wear two pairs of socks to keep from freezing. Got to love warm feet.
Besides Mondays wind storm which kept me up all night for fear of the world being blown away, we got some stuff done this week. The tile in that bathroom is down, grouted, sealed, and now we are all ready for paint which sounds easier then it is. Picking paint color drives me nuts, which then drives the mr nuts, and I am seriously just thinking all white again to just be done with it. Painting is the last things we need to do before we stick the toilet in and man, I want that bathroom functional. Then people can stop using the toilet upstairs and I can stop sitting in pee because little people don't know how to aim. Oh the bathroom problems.
We ended up taking two littles out trick or treating on Halloween. The days plan started out that we were going to take Judah out, just for a little while, then hand out candy. I made a last minute run to the store, bought a bunch of candy, and then went to pick up the kid. Turned out that Miley was coming too. And ok, we might have underestimated their want for candy because instead of being out for a 1/2 hour like we thought, we ended up out for almost 2 hours. The loot those littles got.. oh man. I was even jealous and I don't even eat candy. After the long haul though the neighborhood, we got home, lit the pumpkins and nothing. I think I ended up giving out 5 pieces of candy All the trick or treaters had come and gone and I was left with a bowl full of candy. I have since hidden all the candy and am dealing it out in intervals to the mr sense the next morning I came home from the gym to find him eating Twix and kit Kats for breakfast. I have the candy control. HAHA.
And the camper. You have seen the camper right, with one side ripped off and all gutted? We have been stressing about it for a while now about getting it out of the elements and being able to actually work on it. So we moved it, side missing and gutted and wrapped in a piece of plastic, from the back yard over to one of the barns in town to work on for the winter. The mr towing it with the truck, I drove behind him and watched as the wind damn near blew it away. It was especially scary when a pieces that he had in the camper fell out of the hole and I had to swerve to avoid hitting it. Then backing it up into a very narrow driveway and then getting it into the barn, those were no easy tasks. But the camper is out of the yard which is nice and it didn't fall apart, which is also nice, and we didn't get pulled over for driving around town with a dangerous, unregistered half camper, half death trap on wheels. We are very successful .
What else. Oh, check out the new Christmas mug the mr picked out? (picture below) This years mug tops them all and probably will never be matched. And the t-shirt. (picture below). Not only is a freaking awesome shirt, it is made even better by the fact that our 80 year old neighbor who works at the church thrift shop found it and brought it home for him. She was so excited to give it to him. It was just the greatest thing ever. And now everyone will know his name too. Awesome t-shirt, lots of candy, and a new coffee mug...He did good this week.
Sunday plan is there is no real plan. Just not freak out when it gets dark out at 430.
