Well that month flew by, didn't it?
Hot damn, it's been a MONTH since I've posted and now it's November and there are Christmas carols on in stores (I don't hate it), Halloween candy is on clearance and I'm struggling with whether to take a family picture for nerky Christmas cards this week or push it out a couple of weeks so I can lose a few pounds. We need a month in review, considering the apocalypse is tomorrow, surely there is nothing better to read than what has happened in my life for the past 28-30 day, no? (I mean is this not literally the most terrifying presidential election ever?)
In early October I threw my frand a tea party baby shower that she almost didn't make it to because she was SO pregnant. This event deserves its own post. Fast forward 3 weeks later and I got to hold a 5 day old bebeh who just slept on me and made squishy baby faces and made my ute ache, but not quite achy enough to discontinue birth control because babies are cute, but my life is a scotche chaotic right now to bring another human into it. The baby would come out as a middle-aged mobster with a Boston accent and heartburn.
The rest of October was a mix of evening walks outside in the Fall weather we never get to experience and making mine and my spawn's halloween costumes in the free time I had when I wasn't working or taking a continuing education class. Y'all, I know how to make websites now. I can code like a total nerd.
Anyway, my husfriend hit it out of the park with my kid's Loki helmet. It's SO AWESOME that he's good at making stuff with his hands. Also, the prospect of dressing up in themed Halloween costumes is probably my number one reason for marrying him.
HEROES AND VILLAINS:
Our fat ninja turtle won Halloween, hands down. Kids knew who Deadpool was, but their moms thought he was Spider-Man, which was hilarious. Most moms also didn't know who either of the little ones were - Hawkeye and Loki. Obvi the moms in my town need to watch more Marvel movies.
I was Poison Ivy because my husfriend was Batman and I couldn't figure out how to make Harley Quinn work appropriate, plus I thought a lot of girls would be her this year and I wanted to be unique like the sparkly rainbow snowflake I am. Speaking of, we STILL haven't seen Suicide Squad because life has been too busy. I'm not kidding when I say work and class and momming takes up legit all of my time. We had a kid-free Saturday night in mid October and I was so tired/lame/old that I was like...can we just pick up some take-out and come back home so we don't have to cook or clean? Fell asleep at 8:30 that night like an old ass.
Anywho, so my Poison Ivy costume was a green t-shirt dress that I cut the sleeves off of and glued ivy leaves to, a pair of green tights and some old black heels that I painted green and glittery. Oh and the mask was from the dollar store and I painted it green too. That's my natural hair, obvi.
So that was Halloween, aka my favorite holiday. Before that, Walking Dead came back and HORY SHIT was that an intense episode. And then the tiger episode was weird but necessary after such a draining first episode, and then last night we saw Daryl nekkid which I am NOT complaining about.
Also we have a stray cat living in our garage and he/she won't leave, nor will he/she let us get close to him/her, so we just started putting food and water out, and a litter box, and now we just have Pat the Garage Cat chillin' out there.
Also I got my hur did a couple of weeks ago since my stylist moved across the country. The anxiety of finding a new stylist is almost worse than the anxiety of thinking about who our next president might be. I just want to close my eyes and pretend none of it is happening.
She did a good job, though. So maybe it's not the same at all.
Separately, but kind of related, I accidentally shaved off the middle of my eyebrow last week. Like, I have three eyebrows now. So that about sums up October.
November just started and last week was a super busy work week for me, plus Halloween was Monday and I had a class on Friday night, which culminated in me thinking I was just tired this weekend and not realizing until Sunday that I have strep LIKE A CHILD. So I'm home today so as not to infect my coworkers, and fingers crossed my spawn, stepspawn, husfriend, dogs and garage cat don't catch it from me.
