Well I stayed up late last night and carved some really cool pumpkins for Halloween.
I did find some really cool stencils on the internet for carving some kick ass pumpkins. I only paid $5 for all access to download as many as I wanted for next year and more! It was totally worth it and the Johnny Depp pumpkin looked so much like my husband that he was even shocked.
Well today I had to drive up near my work to go to my dentist appointment at 3pm in order to pick up my mouth guard thingy. Well apparently this cancer must have me so stressed that I grind my teeth at night. Imagine that? I can't really tell that I do this, but my teeth are suffering some so I had to fork out the money for mouth guard (over $300).
Since I was heading up that way, I decided to stop by my job at around noon today in order to give me plenty of time to visit with everyone that I could. I was able to eat a good lunch (salmon, cooked veggies and mashed potatoes) and even downed a whole Ensure. I should be gaining some weight by now because it seems I am able to eat more and more. The hours went by faster than I expected. My its funny how fast time flies when you are having great conversations with friends that seem like family. I still didn't get a chance to visit with everyone that I wanted to.
When I got home I saw this UPS notice that there is something waiting for me on my patio. It turned out to be the most amazing camera from my dad. Bless his heart, he had been trying to get me a camera since my birthday. We accidentally chose a bunk company and this time we settled on Best Buy and a Nikon CoolPix P80. It only took a week to get and just in time to photograph these beautiful pumpkins. I'm still reading through the manual but it is pretty user friendly.
Well as for Halloween and my pumpkins, the only way I was able to properly display my pumpkins was on the cat tree. Tonto was a little pissed by he'll get over it.
Only 5 kids total stopped by. It's been less and less each year so this may be the last year I stay home to hand out candy. If I'm still around next year, I will definitely go out for a party or a haunted house excursion or a flashlight tour of the Winchester Mystery House.
