Well unfortunately I can't go to the fair myself as I have to babysit the team phone at the office. Or as my boss put it "Someone has to do it!".

But most likely I will go to the party! There is always great food, great drinks and everyone is acting funny

sitting here planning this Saturday's Halloween party listening to Christmas music. It's a very holiday like day with clouds, wind, and dropping temperatures. Makes me think of days when I would be out Christmas shopping. Have a great day everybody!

Good morning,

Work will be beckoning for me soon enough, but I really don't know if I will be going. I am having some back spasms that are really limiting my mobility right now, I did take some pain medication so I hope that will help. If I do make it to work, I have a lot of administrative stuff to do today. We never made it to the pumpkin patch yesterday, it started to rain right before it was time to go. I don't know when we will be heading out or if we will at this point. I don't have another day off until Tuesday the 29th.

I am really getting to get into the holiday spirit now, seeing the snow pictures really made me realize how I am so looking forward to the music being on, the shows and movies on, and especially the decorations. I am so excited about it. Woooohoooo!!!!

We are down,almost, to the one week count until Halloween. Anyone going to watch scary movies between now and then? If so, which ones? I think we are going to watch the Conjuring this weekend.
