Top 'o the morning to you my friends! I woke up this morning to the same old crappy, steamy heat outside. I'm REALLY ready for just a wee touch of fall. Anyday. That would be great. You know, to go along with all that wonderful pumpkin stuff out there on the market. It does look like we dodged a tropical storm this time though. So all is not lost.
Busy week this week. I decided to go for broke and cram in a couple of doctor's appointments for myself...orthopedist on Monday and dermatologist on Tuesday. Good news? Despite my German skin and high school baby oil fixation, I have nothing on me that needs a biopsy. Bad news is that I have carpal tunnel in the right hand which required a rather painful steroid shot and a splint at night. Getting old kinda sucks. Also got a flu shot this week, just for sport.
I also got a rather shitty round of golf in this week (thanks to the carpal tunnel).
We had the weekend off from Cross Country, but the boys played their weekly game and slaughtered their poor opponents 37-0.
Because we sorta-kinda had Friday off, (at least we didn't have to get up the next morning at 4:30) I took the kids to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando. This is something my daughter and I do every year, but this year the boy came. As usual, I pop for Express Passes because otherwise it takes 2 hours to get through a haunted house. It was incredible. You may remember we watched some movies in preparation, and it paid off. I think the best house was the one for "Cabin in the Woods". I think the house may have been better than the movie. And if you like "The Walking Dead" on TV, you would have loved the hundreds (not an exaggeration) of zombies walking in the dark streets among the visitors. It was freaking insane.
So reading? What of reading? On audio, I wrapped up Rainbow Rowell's "Attachments" which was cute and was one of those books that makes your heart happy. I'm now about halfway through Diane Keaton's memoir "Then, Again", which focuses on her career and her mother's battle with Alzheimer's. (I absolutely love some of her earlier movies. Baby Boom? My fantasy. Not to mention the awesomeness of The Godfathers and Annie Hall.)
In print I'm still plugging through "Ender's Game" and I love it. I don't have much time for print reading, but I'm hoping to finish it within the next few days. This really is an amazing story for it's time, and I cannot wait for the movie.
Today we have church and then my daughter and I have a four-hour adoption event at a local Petco. Cross your fingers that we are able to find many furever homes for these doggies.
Hope everyone has a wonderful, cool (!), restful day.
