LOVE full days off 🙂
Up for a walk, but I didn’t feel so great afterwards. My right hip was killing me…SO sore with movement, especially going up the steps. SIGH.
Breakfast, yummy as usual.
Then I had a pretty relaxing day…watched Survivor from last week, worked a bit on my Christmas list and read.
I was able to enjoy a phone conversation with Mom and Dad in the afternoon.
And then it was time to make and eat dinner and get ready to go to our neighbor’s Halloween Party.
I have to say, I was REALLY nervous about going. I HATE going places where you won’t really know anyone! But I’m so glad we stepped outside of our comfort zone. We actually had a pretty good time.
First of all, our costumes ROCKED! We went as Doctor and Patient — I was the doctor — with scrubs, bootie covers for my feet, hat for my head, surgical mask, stethoscope, sterile gloves! — Kimm was the patient — with a Johnny, IV, Band-aids and gauze, patient name band and a “high fall risk” band!
In fact, we won for best couple costume!!!! (our prize was lemon infused vodka, home-made by one of the co-hosts).
The food was good too — there was a food truck that served fried mac and cheese bites (SO GOOD), loaded tator tots (with cheese and sour cream) (SO GOOD) — there was also wings and a turkey reuben sandwich, but we didn’t have those. Also several crock pots filled with delicious things (all had meat so we didn’t eat that), and then cupcakes and sweets. Add to the mix beer and wine and it was a pretty good time all around.
And it turned out that we were NOT the only neighbors there…we met a few people that we knew and some we didn’t know.
The only negative to the whole evening…I got too close to the fire pit and an ember got on my foot and burned a hole through my shoe!
Other than that, it was fun. Now we’re just going to have to think ahead for costumes for next year — can’t repeat!
