    Went to an EdCamp today with some teacher friends. We have a yummy Tex-Mex lunch. After EdCamp was over I went to Target for some essentials and some fun things. I found a super cute headband/hat combo I'm going to wear to school next Thursday for Red Ribbon Week.

    Ran a 5K this morning (time was better than last year's despite my having bronchitis), entered my quarterly grades and then listened to The Moth Radio Hour this afternoon, and am going out for trivia and burlesque with Rockhubby this evening (there's a huge outdoor costume party downtown but neither of us are up for that kind of crowd).

    Went trick-or-treating with my sister and niece at a historical village. She was a tuckered out lady bug by the time we left!

    Sunday is often times more of my free day than Sats these days.

    I plan to see the movies John Wick & Ouija & try out a brand new restaurant in my area called The Big Catch Seafood. :D

    I was supposed to go to a Halloween party with BF, but the person throwing the party said he wasn't welcome. :-(

    I declined my invitation and he & I went out on our own. We ate, went to Walmart, got hot Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and rode around downtown with the Garth Brooks concert fans milling about between shows. Kind of fun to be out in costumes on November 1st. LOL

    Went to a Christmas craft/gift show with two of my friends from work; it's become an annual tradition. Got several Christmas gifts and now I'm ready to curl up on the couch and do some marking.

    We read all morning, went to lunch and then errands and Christmas shopping!
    Tonight will be more reading by the fire and an episode of Newsroom on Netflix.
    Feeling lucky.

    Took photos for a friend's wedding. It was original. One of the best weddings I've been to. I'm beat though. After I take a rest, I've got to start editing photos. Can't wait to post them on FB and Instagram. They had a sign up telling what # to use on IG.

    My mind is going to be mainly on my Dad from now on these days, so I just keep going through life week by week as best as I can. :mellow:

    So since I finally had no work to do, my BF & I walked the mall & stayed in the bookstore for about 45 min or so. We brought home some food for dinner & will relax the rest of the day in which I have quite a bit of reading to do for my grad class test.

    I went with a couple of friends and their Sunday school class ladies to paint pottery today. I painted an owl mug. We also ate lunch, and then some of us went shopping. Nothing major, just groceries.

    I'm going to BF's house later.

    Spent way too much money today, but I got lots of great things! So excited for a cool stained glass fish for my mom. Her whole office is all under the sea themed since she scuba dives :)

    I'm about to go grocery shopping and then I suppose I'll start studying again for the Teaching with Technology exam I have on Monday. I really need to clean up my house BIG TIME, but it's too tempting to use housecleaning as a procrastination method for studying, so I will need to force myself to keep enduring the mess!

    Oh and some nice ST:TNG with dinner! :)

    It's my turn to bring treats for the staff on Friday, and I felt like baking, so I've churned out peppermint brownies, thumbprint cookies and an apple-bran loaf. Everything is going into the freezer once it's cooled, or it won't last through the weekend now that my son is home!

    This afternoon, Trans-Siberian Orchestra will be cranked up and I'm getting the holiday decorating done!

    I slept really, really late. Then I ran to the grocery for vegetable soup supplies. My BF has the flu, so I'm taking him some soup and cornbread.

    Got a lot of decorating done, but still have the garlands to go on the stair railing, the Santa collection to arrange at the bottom of the stairs, and the tree to do. I didn't think that we were going to bring the tree in until next weekend, but my husband brought it in this afternoon. He'll put the lights on it in the morning, then I'll do the rest.

    I went to two craft shows today to shop. Almost done Christmas shopping. Then BF and I had a nice dinner. After, he went out to watch the OSU game and I stayed home and set up part of the snow village.

    DH and I had to go to church to help with the practice for the kids' Christmas program. After lunch, I did some laundry and cleaning and then chilled on the couch for a bit (this early pregnancy exhaustion is crazy!!!). And then, while cooking dinner, I got sick. Spent the rest of the night trying to nibble on crackers and sip on Sprite. :( Fingers are crossed that it was partly caused by the stomach bug DH had earlier this week, because if this was all just pregnancy-related, I'm going to be miserable!!!

    I am a little ashamed to say I've done nothing today. We went to a wedding yesterday, and I may have overindulged just a little. Or a lot. :blush: I'm too old for a hangover! But we had so much fun!

    Luckily, the kids went with grandma and grandpa, so hubby and I laid around all day (after driving the 2 hours home). I was feeling better tonight, so we did a quick cleaning after dinner, then I helped hubs with some formatting documents he has to have for work tomorrow. I wish we would have gotten some decorating done, but alas-that'll have to wait til tomorrow!

    It was a nice day. I spent the morning volunteering at a horse rescue until I got my foot stepped on. I went home shortly after (having stopped for a burger and fries to take home), peeled off my boots, put ice on my foot and relaxed the rest of the day.

    Edit: Sunday was much more productive. My foot/toe was feeling much better, so I hung the Christmas lights on the house-- 4 hours of work, then made clean chili and cornbread for dinner and did a TON of laundry. I was pretty pleased with myself.
