A little late, aren't I?
You will see to the right the final version of my Halloween costume. Not the best pic, but we didn't take too many. Can you guess what we were? "The Ukrainian" and I assembled our costumes from various bits and pieces that we scoured the following stores: Target, CVS, K-Mart, the mall (which includes all the trendy stores), 99-cent storeS, Jo-Ann, Michaels, Wal-Mart, Party City, and Rite-Aid.
I must also publicly thank my mommy for saving me from having to sew our gloves and boots! She got them done in minutes, while my failed attemptS took hours.
Halloween is the beginning of the holiday season in my mind. I went to the mall the other day and noticed that everything was glittery and Christmas-y. I was diggin' it, but I'm sure once the Christmas music goes on repeat on the radio, I will be wishing for some normalcy. But for now, I have an excuse to bake more (just made a quick batch of gingersnaps for "The Ukrainian's" co-workers last week). =)
In other news, I've been a bit stressed lately. This is not necessarily due to work, but the combination of work, school, and some consultancy projects I'm doing on the side are taking their toll. I've also been working on an important/special project this week that I HOPE succeeds (if you have some extra luck or prayers to send, it is THAT important to me that I ask that you share!). More disclosure on that later, I suppose.
Finally, I am doing my second 20+-miler next week. Yay?
