Just wanted to pop on & write a quick post before settling in for the night. Today is my 2nd day off for the week & I slept half of it away & then got to spend about 2 hours of it doing laundry, so I don't really feel like I've had a day off, which probably sounds weird, but that's how I look at it, especially since I have to work the next 3 days. I think it's also because my husband was home today & is spending his day at home watching "The Walking Dead" on Netflix, and I'm sorry, but I just can NOT get into that series! I can read about zombies without a problem, but actually watching them in a movie/on tv, I just can't do it. So, I'm actually trying to ignore the sounds coming from the tv that is located behind me while I write this. Kind of hard when you hear that gross squish when one of their heads gets smashed in or the sound of their "rarr rarr" as they're about to attack someone. Yeah, I'm sorry, that's just not for me. LOL!
Anyway, I hope your week has been going well so far! We are just 2 days away from Halloween, and I'm actually kind of grateful that I get to work that day, as I don't really feel like opening the door to trick or treaters (not that we get that many at the apartment complex)...plus, I have no money to buy candy with, so yeah. That is a problem. LOL! Oh well, I'll just spend my Halloween at work, troubleshooting people's problems with their modems/tv's/phones. I can't believe October is almost over though. Where in the world did this month go!? LOL! I'm happy in a way though, because it means we are one step closer to the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday season & even though the holidays can be stressful, I am looking forward to them! I really can't wait to put up our Christmas tree (which we're doing the weekend after Thanksgiving) & pull out my Christmas cd's & just get into the festive mood! Christmas is my favorite holiday, if you couldn't tell. LOL! I'm also looking forward to being able to actually spend money on Christmas presents this year, even though a few of my friends are going to get semi-homemade gifts, just because I feel they are a bit more personal, & I've never done anything like that for Christmas...well, at least not since I was kid. LOL! The hubby & I are still exchanging gifts this year, but just this past Saturday, we got one of our early Christmas presents...we FINALLY got a brand new dining room table & chairs!!! Yes! After almost 3 years of living in this apartment, we finally have a table & chairs that we can actually sit down to, & eat supper at! We actually just had our first meal at the table last night. It was nice to sit down & have your food in front of you, and not below you, like it had been, when we were eating at the coffee table. LOL. I'll include a picture of the dining room set. We got it from Ashley Furniture, and it definitely makes this apartment feel a bit more like a home now! :)
