1. I'm glad the elections are finally over. I get so tired of all the negative ads out there. How's about telling me what YOU stand for and what YOU want to achieve for the government. Not the faults of your competitor.
2. Did you know that Thomas Jefferson was the first to use a smear campaign against his opponent? Geeze, if only he knew what he started!
3. My Grandpa had a little spill on Tuesday. The doctors originally thought he broke his hip, but after surgery last night it turns out he broke his femur. Still not a good thing, but better than having to have a hip replacement. It shouldn't be as long of a recovery for him, but still going to be a painful and hard one. Please keep him in your prayers!
4. I'm really missing my friend Annie right now. The only thing that makes me happy summer is over is the fact that she'll be coming home for the holidays!
5. Daylight Savings Time ends this Sunday. I am not looking forward to losing an hour of sleep or getting off work as it's getting dark. If I was President I would make it Daylight Savings Time YEAR ROUND.
6. And while I was at it, I would mandate a 4-day work week as well.
7. I taught my sister how to make pumpkin puree and roasted pumpkin seeds this week. I don't think she was really paying attention... I think she just wanted me to do the work for her! I have two more pumpkins to use, so be prepared for more pumpkin recipes on this here blog.
8. On that note, I've seen recipes for beef stew baked in a pumpkin. Beef stew is not one of my favorite meals, but I like the idea of baking a meal inside a pumpkin. I've got an idea I'm working on... I'll let you know how it turns out.
9. I am STILL swamped at work planning events and working at getting two websites launched. I could use a vacation.
10. It's volleyball night! This might be the first time this season where we actually have the entire team there. It seems like every week we have to have a sub for someone.
11. Monkey dressed up for Halloween this year. Want to take a guess as to what she was? A monkey of course! Cutest little monkey I've ever seen, that's for sure.
12. 5 years ago today, I had Lasik surgery. It was worth every single penny.
13. I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and am now reading Undone by Karin Slaughter. What are you reading?
