Happy Halloween?

I've never been much into Halloween. Where I work, they have costume contests and goodies contests. 2 years ago, some of the team I was on dressed up as characters from the Wizard of Oz (only 3 of us). I found a scarecrow costume online and so I was the scarecrow. Here's a picture of it (but that's not me) ....

I could have used that costume again this year, but I didn't want to. And last night I was looking for something I could maybe use for a costume. I actually tried on a button up shirt of Jeff's, some khaki pants of his, and my hair hidden with a cap. I was going to dress up as a boy, haha. I was excited about it last night, but then this morning while I was getting ready for work, I thought it was a dumb idea, so I didn't dress up. Maybe next year Jeff and I will find some costumes. This year, we're trying to save up money for our cruise in January. Anyway, so for those who are more into Halloween than I am ....

Crazy Busy Work Week

Wow, I'm glad this week is over! I am a team leader over a team working on 5 or 6 different projects and sometimes there's a lot to do and it makes for a crazy busy work week. And now it's my weekend and my weekends ALWAYS go too fast and I never look forward to Mondays! Here's a picture I found on Google Image Search ....

2. What kind of car did you drive? Didn't drive a car till I went to college

3. Did you pass your driver's license test on the first try? No, but that was because I was EXTREMELY nervous! But the 2nd time I knew more what to expect and passed it (like 4 days before my 1st day of college classes) :-)

4. Were you a party animal? Nope (read the answer to #1 to see why)

5. Were you considered a flirt? Nope (same reason)

6. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir? Not in high school, but I did play the flute in Junior High Band (as if anyone cared to know that)

7. Were you a nerd? Hmmm... not really

8. Were you on any varsity teams? No (I didn't have very good knees, so I didn't do any sports)

I Miss My Hubby!

Jeff left early this morning to go to the airport to fly to Las Vegas for another business trip. He was going to go to Miami, Florida, this week, but they postponed that conference I think 'cause of some construction on the building where the conference was going to be held. So instead, Jeff got to go to Vegas.

I probably could have gone with him if I had asked for the time off, but he'll be working very LONG days and even though I have a mission companion who lives in Vegas, I probably would get kinda bored without Jeff. So maybe we'll make it down there some weekend, so I can show him the area where I served there.

Jeff was gone for 2 days a couple months ago when he went to Los Angeles. This week, he'll be gone almost 4 days! Hopefully time goes by fast 'cause I miss my hubby!! Keeping busy with my job and things to do at home will definitely help!

Week is Almost Over!

The title to this blog post says it all! I actually did come down with the flu last weekend, complete with achy muscles, being weak, and a fever... a few times I would be really cold, even with a blanket over me; then I would take some Advil which would help my fever and I'd be really hot and sweaty. I didn't like being really cold or really hot. At least I didn't throw up (which is the worst part about having the flu)! I was able to get a blessing Sunday evening from Jeff and Jeff's cousin's husband (who lives in the same condo building we do). I was kinda worried I'd get another staph infection like I did last year 'cause I had some of the same symptoms, although not as bad as last year. The blessing helped and I was feeling better on Monday. I probably was well enough on Monday to go to work, but I decided to take the day off since Sunday night, I was still sick and wasn't sure how I'd be on Monday, so I decided to rest. I've been trying to work a few extra hours so I don't have to take a full 8 vacation hours for Monday. Maybe that's why I've been feeling extremely tired this week? Who knows. But there's just tomorrow, then the work week will be over!!

Oh, here's a funny picture of our kitty. I took some laundry out of our dryer and took it to our bedroom. I didn't close the dryer door and came back to find this ....

Girls' Night Out

My mom and sister (Melissa) hung out tonight while our guys were at the Priesthood Session of General Conference. My other sister (Rebecca) couldn't make it since she and Ryan are up in Ogden this weekend, helping Ryan's parents to move. We first went to Deseret Book at the University Mall in Orem. Every General Conference during the Priesthood Session, they have a Ladies' Night and the first 100 people in line get a free gift. This was this gift this time ....

After that, they have give-aways throughout the evening and other stuff (a couple authors who sign books, a singer, etc.). But we usually don't wait around for that stuff. After standing in line for about an hour or a little more and getting our gift, we went to eat at IHOP. The service wasn't the greatest tonight, but it was fun hanging out with my mom and Melissa ....

Also, I don't really like this sudden change of weather... cold and rainy! I woke up feeling a little off-ish this morning, then as they day progressed I started getting achy muscles. I took some Advil before I left to meet up with my mom and sister, so I was able to make it through the evening. Now my muscles are aching a little again. :-( I hope I'm not coming down with the flu and that it's just 'cause of the change in the weather. We'll see how I'm feeling tomorrow, I guess.

Mission Reunion

Jeff and I went to my mission reunion tonight. I wanted to take our camera so I could have a picture or two to post, but I forgot it. :-( I had two mission presidents on my mission (Nevada Las Vegas West), and the one tonight was my 2nd one... during the last half of my mission. There weren't a whole lot of people who showed up, but it was a nice little group. Other than President & Sister Hill, I only really knew an older couple who served around the same time I did. Lots of the others were after my time, since I only served under President Hill the last 9 months of my mission. We just visited a little, everybody introduced themselves, then a little more visiting, then we left. It's always good to see President & Sister Hill. We were talking about trying to get more people to come next year and I'll definitely bring our camera then to post pictures. :-)
