Halloween day I was feeling pretty crappy towards the late afternoon/evening time. So not only did we not go out trick or treating, but we never did the alternative plan either....camp fire with roasting marshmallows and scary movie after. *sigh* What an anticlimactic Halloween and end to my favorite month. Boo.
Instead what we did was welcome November with a camp fire and marshmallow roast! Hooray! Sammy got the fire going as I fed the kiddos dinner. Then we all rushed out and had a grand 'ol time roasting marshmallows! Molly wanted to eat hers unfired and Anthony was funny because he said the fire was burning his face so every photo I have of him he's blocking his face with his hand. We hope to do this a few more times before the snow falls this year because it was so fun and relaxing. Even the kitties came and had a good time.
During the day Tuesday I made these yummy cupcakes for Sam to take to work and share as a belated b-day gift for a friend and one of Sam's co-workers. It took every once of self control not to swipe one and eat it, lol. Word on the street is they were a hit. Yay! Who doesn't love heavily frosted cupcakes with Halloween candy on top!?
I feel GREAT today. Got sick once this morning (and with such fury I popped a blood vessel on the skin under my left eye....ugh) but other than that I've felt significantly better today than I have in a long, long time. Maybe this is a taste of what's to come for me? I'd love it if I'd start having more good days than bad days. I'll be 12 weeks on Sunday!
Sammy worked at a different work site today and had to take a work vehicle in to get some work done on it. This allowed the kids and I to meet up with him at my favorite local food joint, Sodbusters, and get some lunch. I've been missing coffee, so I got myself a cup of decaf and loaded up on sugar and creme. Mmmm. I got the woodshed burger to eat....it's a burger with their special BBQ sauce on it. Ohh it was so good. I *almost* finished the whole thing. I also pigged out on french fries and a side salad with their delicious ranch dressing. Lunch out was just the thing I needed. :) Now the kids are napping and I'm eating Halloween candy, lol.
