Belated Weekend/Halloween....

Wow, where is time going? Honestly....Halloween is over, we have elected a new President...and we are headed downhill, rapidly to Thanksgiving...I was in Hell-Mart yesterday....Christmas trees are up, decorations are out...and I have not even started my shopping. I feel like my life is passing by in a blur....

That's why I have not posted about our Halloween, or the previous weekend....I won't elaborate...old news now...I took the kids trick-or-treating...the ex tagged along for Aaron...can you say awkward? Then hubby invited him to tag along with us to the local Pizza King for dinner....I could have kicked his butt....but, it made Aaron happy...so, what's a mom and ex wife to do?

Anyway, here are a few pictures from Halloween.....


Max..as a Power Ranger....

Aaron...as a soldier....

I took pics of them afterwards...sorting their candy..but, unfortunately...the flash on my camera didn't work right, the pictures came out way too dark.
Anyway, they had fun....that's all that matters...

Now, I have to keep the candy hid, dole it out sparingly, or Max would get into it and eat it all in one setting.

My Saturday was spent running to Waveland to get Justin, grocery shopping, etc...
I did make a huge pot of chili...it was so yummy. I am talking a stock pot full...with cornbread...By Sunday night, it was gone...seriously...I had one little bowl...but the boys, ate it up! I went to the gym Saturday night...I like going on the weekends...late in the evening...hardly anyone is there. Nothing irritates me more than to go and find the place packed and have to wait on machines...that happened to me Monday..my work out normally takes an hour and a half..but Monday night it took 2 hours!

On the job front..Mr. Burns finished last week, hardly speaking to me, nor I to him....this week, he has been cordial...I still haven't put my personal effects back out on my desk, don't know if I will...because next time, which I am sure there will be a next time, that he goes off on me...I am walking out. I am smart, work hard and attractive...I should have no problem finding a new job..I mean, we have several hospitals, Purdue University, Ivy Tech, plus several Manufacturing plants, of which I am sure need office help...I can find another job. If things go smoothly, then I will wait until after Christmas, we file our income taxes, so when I do quit, and I don't have another job lined up, then we will be ok financially for a while until I do find one.

Well, that's about it...it's hump day...got to get through it and the rest of the week is easy peazy.

Have a good one everyone!

Dix. . . . . get a job. . . . then quit. . . . don't quit without a new job. . . . you are not hearing,but jobs are tighter than you think. . . . at least in our area they are. .. . . lots more applicants for fewer jobs. . . . we are hiring the cream of the crop because we have lots of choices.

Jobs are scarce here. I hear about lay offs constantly...just be careful.

Glad you survived Halloween--that would have been weird for me. Glad you got thru it ok.

Sounds like you're doing a great job at the gym.

Mason was a red power ranger too and Aden was a blue power ranger. Daniel and Rei were dressed in long black costumes w/masks to b scary. They all had a good time and Rei and I even quit a lil early and handed out candy to 5 kids. Glad all is well and hope Keith is feeling better.

No jobs of any sort in my neck of Appalachia; but I hope when/if you decide to that you find a good job easy and quickly.

Sandy...I have pretty much quit watching it, hence no blogging about it. I don't know...just not of much interest to me this season.

Sicilan....You are right...I am glad my manager talked me out of it....it hasn't been easy the last couple of weeks...but, I am trying to get along with "Mr. Burns"....biding my time, I will find a new job, regardless of the reasons hubby is trying to convince me that I should stay.

Flat..yeah, with the economy the way it is, jobs are scarace...losing my job right now, probably wouldn't be a very good thing. Halloween was fun...now we just have to get through Thanksgiving and Christmas....Yikes!

Chelle...I bought candy, but we were home late and didn't have any trick or treaters. Sounds like your guys had fun too!

Toni...I think it's that way everywhere....hopefully it will improve...so I can find another one and get out of here.
