Happy Halloween!

Yep. That's right, we dressed up the dog.

It's something we both never thought we would do - ever. But we were at Target and it was there and so cute... so we bought it. Grux is not exactly thrilled.

The body part fits him perfectly but apparently he has a small head (unlike his mama), so I had to pin the hat to the body so it wouldn't fall into his eyes.

We're taking him "trick or treating" this afternoon to our parents' houses, so hopefully I'll get a couple more cute photos to show of him.

Have a fun (and safe!) Halloween!!

My Day as a 4 Yearold

Last night about an hour before I left work I got a call asking if I was supposed to cover at another location today..... I wasn't. Then I was asked if I could.... umm, sure, thanks for the notice.

This location is about 35 minutes from home, as opposed to the 10 I usually drive, and required me to be there 3 hours and fifteen minutes earlier than I was supposed to be at work today. Lovely.

Needless to say I was not in the best mood this morning. And it doesn't help that I've worked at this location before and know that it is incredibly slow most days, oh and did I mention that I'd be all by myself. Yep, all alone. I despise working alone. Had I known that would happen I never would have taken the job.

Anyway, jump ahead about 2 hours into my day. I have everything that needs to be done up to this point done, and had it done for about an hour, and had had one customer.... that's it. This is the point when I snapped and started to act like I was 4.

First, I grabbed the crayons and color sheets we have for little kids and colored.

I'm not really sure why Rabbit and Pooh are on a stripper pole....

Then I snacked on a couple loops out of the container of generic fruit loops I had brought.

Then I had my oh-so-grown-up lunch: PB&J.

I couldn't remember if this location had a microwave, and we can't really leave for lunch, so it had to be this pretty much.

And finally I had a few Sweetarts.

Then I read a lot of the book I smuggled in with me (this is a no-no but I would have lost my mind otherwise). Tomorrow I'm back at my normal location (at least as far as I know). Which, while I dislike it, it is better than being alone.

Things I Love About Fall #1

I love Fall. It's my absolute favorite season. There are so many things I love about this season. So many, in fact, that I thought I'd start a little series of posts on Things I Love About Fall. Some will be random things about Fall in general and some may be specific to Fall 2009.

So, for my first favorite thing I thought I'd share something that is partly responsible for keeping me from blogging right now.

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon. It's the latest in the Outlander series and I'm completely absorbed in this book. I love it. I want to take it with me everywhere - except that it's huge and weighs as much as a small baby basically, not exactly purse friendly.

This came out last month and was definitely one of my favorite things about September - and Fall 2009.
