first week of november and i’ve already failed the blogging every day thing. oh well. i was having a hard time coming up with stuff to write about with the prompts provided anyway D: thanksgiving was never really a big deal in my family. lets just play catch up with life instead shall we?
our plans for halloween got a little messed up due to ben’s work schedule. his job decided at the last minute to tack on another stop before he could get home and he almost didn’t make it home in time for us to go trick or treating! thankfully as i was sitting here setting up alternative plans for transportation, he messaged to let me know he would be home in time. things ended up rushed and vincent refused to wear makeup (i was so looking forward to angry eyebrows too..) so he ended up being a “modern vampire in a suit” instead. he still ended up looking super cute. i tried to talk ben into wearing a costume but he didn’t like any of the last minute ideas i came up with, so he just wore his walken dead shirt (chris walken drawn to look like a zombie.)
i have no idea what i am supposed to be. striped shirt, dress, skull face paint. i looked pretty awesome though. much nicer than last year’s fail costume.
vincent got a pretty good candy haul for someone who isn’t old enough to really enjoy it. that’s ok.. his parents will make sure all that candy goes to a good home.. our bellies :p there was also some religious paraphernalia… i wish people would just let us have one damn holiday where they don’t force their religion on others. is that too much to ask? also thanks church lady who gave my 1 year old a baggy with beads in it… glad i got the bucket ahead of time…
i have no clue what i can really blog about regarding my new job, especially since my boss reads my blog (hi boss), and in fact found me because of my blog, but i will just say yay! i am employed! i am an administrative assistant and later on will also be a junior analyst for a website that helps tidy up backlinks for companies trying to fix their search engine scores. i am learning a ton about SEO and all that good stuff! very excited to have a job again, and especially one where i can sit on my butt and hang out with my son!
Other Random Things:
today is voting day and i’m going out in a bit to do my part. lots of people forget to vote during the years that have no presidential elections, but as a friend mentioned on facebook, every year is a primary, every person who gets voted in during these elections gets a change at a higher spot. so the people you vote for or against today have a chance at getting to be president someday. i gotta make sure a few people i dislike don’t get that chance. so i’m off to vote! i hope if you are in america and are eligible to vote, that you will as well.
i found a really awesome website for productivity called HabitRPG and i think i’m in love with it. i really think this will help me stay productive. i love checklists and this is a fun way to get things done while working towards goals and rewards!
another cool site i joined is Duolingo, which is a language learning website. its free and has a wide variety of languages to learn, plus more on the way. i’m currently working my way though german, since i already have a basic understanding of the language. the site is pretty cool! and like habitrpg it treats learning like a game which seems to be a great way for me to continue using a website for more than just two days..
ok! time to get dressed and head out.
