I know, I know! I totally failed at my goal. So much has been going on and everytime I think I should write about it I feel exhausted just thinking about it. I really should write about the weekend in Breckenridge. It was ridiculously hard for both of us, but we made it through and he passed. I am so proud of him that whenever I try to tell anyone about it, I can't find the right words. The next step for him is to create a 45 minute form and perform it on Nov. 22 with the other people who made it through. Then he will get his conditional black belt. He has to do the form to music and after considering quite a few he decided to use Get Back by the Beatles. So far it looks great. Again, so proud...
My parents got a new puppy over the weekend. She is a 4 month old Standard Poodle. She is so sweet. Her name is probably going to be Layla, I love it.
We took the kids to Elitch's yesterday. They decorate the park for Halloween and have kiosks set up where the kids can trick or treat and get candy. We took my girl's best friend and Shell's best friend's son with us so the kids would have someone to ride the rides with other than each other. We went at noon so we could get cheap tickets. They were only $8 each and after 5:00 they were $36! It was a reasonably inexpensive way to spend the day.
I can't believe that Halloween is on Friday. We bought costumes for the kids last week. My boy is the villian from Scream and the girl is wearing a Renaissance style dress. We've never before allowed them to wear masks while trick or treating, but the Scream one pretty much demands it. My boy knows this is a big deal for us, but he assured us that he can see okay with it on. We'll be with them the whole time, so at least we can keep an eye out for him too.
Election Day is next week. I got my mail in ballot on Friday, and I've got it about halfway filled out. I don't want to mail it back in, so I'll be dropping it off this week. I'm definitely ready for the political commercials and calls to stop. Bring on the next president! Just as long as it's Obama...
My best friend will be here next Friday. I'm really excited, but I've got a lot to do before he gets here. My house is a filthy mess. The kids and I worked out a gameplan, and we'll get to work tonight. Bring on the cleaning and organizing!
That's all I've got for now. Time to get back to work. Oh and I think I'm getting a raise. Yay!
