Visited Jen at school this past weekend with my sister-in-law.  We all had a good time.  Ate at a fantastic, authentic Mexican food place near her school which looked like a total dump but was not only completely packed with a steady crowd coming and going the whole time we were there, but also had the BEST food I've had outside of Mexico!!!  Had dinner there 2 days in a row it was so good.  It was great to see my girl and have fun...when Joe and I went out there a couple of weekends ago for parents weekend it did not end on a good note as Jen and I argued a bit.  The last 2 weeks have been tense.  This weekend made up for it!!  :)

I haven't mentioned it here I don't think, but I am quite frustrated with my job (for a number of reasons) and have been for awhile.  Circumstances as they are will not be changing and there is no movement available to me within the current structure.  I have been looking for a new job, but sadly there is nothing out there.  Don't get me wrong, with so many people out of work I am very thankful that I have a job...I just wish I liked it.

Had the day off of work today...I had a list of things I wanted to accomplish - laundry, workout, sewing, cleaning, etc.
Instead...I stayed curled up in my bed reading a book until 3pm...made a quick dinner for myself and Joe and am back to sloughing off.  I have friends coming over tonight to watch DWTS...they will have to ignore the dust and un-vacuumed floors because it just isn't happening.
I must say, selfishly taking a day to just chill was wonderful, relaxing and rejuvenating!  It's been quite a while since I've taken a day for ME!  I was a little sad that it was one of the few over 60 degree days we've had in the past month or so, but I got over that part quickly.

I am making a halloween costume for the daughter of one of my co-workers.  I will have to post it when I'm finished.  She's 2 yrs old and is going to be a horse.  Should be super cute.  Of course, if I spend my days off sewing instead of reading she might be half of a horse.  :)  Nope, I'll get back to it...soon.

I'm sorry to hear about the less-than-thrilling job and job search. But I'm glad things are better with Jen!

I love those lounge in bed all day days when you're not sick!

And I can't wait to see the costume! I hope to be able to make costumes for the kids next year... just wasn't going to happen (budget or time-wise) this year.

Glad to see you on here =)
