So this morning started off interesting.
A. I had to get up at 4:30 to drop Sean off at the pool. Did I mention it was an outdoor, non-covered, non-heated pool? Thank goodness he wasn't the one having to swim. He was helping with some German Infantry Badge thing. Don't ask because I really don't know. He tried to explain it this morning and I don't retain stuff well that early in the morning.
B. After waking up at 6:50 this morning I'm on my way to the bathroom for a nice, hot shower when I see something scuttling, yes scuttling towards the bathroom. I'm proud of myself as I didn't scream, just grabbed a heavy shoe and smashed the dickens out of a rather large roach. Please don't think I'm a horrible housekeeper for admitting I had a large roach in my house. I guess the cold is driving them in.
Having taken care of that it was business as usual. Thank God!
Sean informed me yesterday that he's not sure if their company is helping with this upcoming long rotation or not. Word on the street is that they aren't, but I never put too much stock into something until I see it unfold. At any rate, I still don't think we will be going home for Thanksgiving whether he has a four day for it or not.
There was frost on the ground for the first time this morning. It was in the mid-30's when I dropped Sean off this morning. Boomer was shivering even when he was inside the house, so I'm guessing I'm going to have to get a doggie sweater for him. He's now taken to getting under the bed when he's cold. I looked for him forever this morning until he finally popped out from under the bed. Silly dog!
So, I didn't think I was going to dress up for Halloween, but I may have to rethink that. Sean told me yesterday one of the local clubs here is having a costume contest on Saturday night and the prize money is $2,000. Do you know what I could do with $2,000? A LOT! I could get a new bed and a new laptop. So, now I'm brainstorming what could be a winning costume. I'm thinking about Little Red Riding Hood. Anybody have some great ideas for a costume that could win me some moolah?
Have a great Tuesday and send me those costume suggestions!
