I'm Back...Temporarily

I'm so happy to finally be able to read all my blogs! I'm borrowing the internet & hoping that by the time I get home it'll be up & running (along with my cable, which is also out). I have no clue what I'll do if I cant watch Greys Anatomy & Private Practice tonight...ahhh!

I just realized that I didn't post a favorite movie for Tuesday. I'm such a slacker. I was thinking about posting one this weekend, maybe I'll still do that if our cable/internet are back up. I really have no idea what I used to fill my days with when I didn't have interenet. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was awful...

Oh & fyi, the bedroom window issue has temporarily been fixed (aka: cardboard, tape & a trash bag quick fix), and my car has also been fixed (both window & AC). The next issue I have to work on is extending my cars' manufacturers warranty. I'm so not looking forward to knowing how much that's going to cost me.

In the meantime, I'm still trying to get ready for Halloween. Due to being in a new neighborhood, I really have no idea how many kids to expect or if kids even trick or treat around there so I'm having a difficult time trying to decide how much candy to have on hand cause it's never good to run out. Rusty's told me to buy a bunch of candy & if we don't pass it all out then he'll eat it. I'm sure that'll be such a sacrifice on his part, lol.

I don't think we're dressing up this year. Mostly because I'm broke & the darn costumes are SO expensive. I really wish I knew how to sew.

I'm really excited about spending all Halloween alone with Rusty. We've always had people over or gone out to other peoples houses in the past but this year it's just the two of us. We bought the stuff to make pumpkin pie & brownies with so our evening is sure to be full of scary movies, candy, trick or treaters' & a huge sugar rush, ha ha. I also got a great recipe for Pumpkin Muffins from Angry Julie's blog so I'm definetly going to be adding them to our fatty menu for this weekend.

I recently participated in The Mommy-Files 1st Halloween Swap (so much fun) & received a bunch of stuff from Lindy Lou (thank you!!!). I had a blast shopping for stuff to send to my swap buddy Elizabeth. I feel so bad but I didn't send her package out til last week so she wont receive it til today. I really hope she & her kids like the stuff I sent, although, I wish I could have sent more.

The Mommy-Files will be hosting a Bloggers Santa Swap for Christmas & I'm participating in this too. If you're interested in joining in on the fun & feel like giving a little extra this Christmas season click here to sign up. Shannon (@The Mommy-Files) will be getting her list together & pairing participants up by November 11.

Rusty keeps reminding me that we're on a budget & scolds me for joining these swaps but I cant help it. They're so much fun & getting to know someone new is always great! I swear this is the last one for this year Rusty ;)


  1. Just make sure you buy the good kind of candy. You wouldn't want to be stuck with stuff that tastes nasty.

  2. Wow! Life without an internet connection. How are you surviving? I hope all is well and right again in the world before too long. :)

    PS: LOVE your movie pick of the week.

  3. I was at my parents' house early this week and their Internet was down, we all felt lost! Now I'm in my new apartment with my husband which I love but we don't have Internet set up yet. How did we ever live without it? Haha. I totally understand!


I love comments!
