The kids had picture day
Hurricane Sandy came and went. We didn't get damage on our property, but my Dad's truck was another story.
So despite the storm things calmed down in time for Halloween. They actually had a nice little party for the kids at my work and they got to go in all dressed in their costumes.I must say that my new job is a lot more family oriented than my last one which is a nice change.
The night of Halloween we had a ton of kids we went through $40 worth of candy and had to also break out the lunch snacks to make sure everyone got something that came to our door. I could have shut the light off early but I feel bad for the kids whose parents work later and the end of our trick or treating window
Work for me has continued to be good, busy but good I just won my 4th award of the year. While I am happy to have won this month has been a little stressful since its a short month and no one really wants to commit to meetings with the upcoming holiday I have a feeling this month is going to be a little slower .
This week has been extremely tiring as two of the boys have been fighting the croup. We went to the pediatrician on Wednesday but the doctor didnt think they needed steroids to help with breathing. Of course that night hubby ended up bringing Timmy over to the ER as he couldnt breathe well. The boys out has meant half days in the office and half remote which makes this job all the more challenging.
The one good thing about the cooler weather is that we get to start up the pellet stove again. The repairman came out and cleaned and inspected it yesterday. We now have a nice fire to lay by and relax.
On the exercise front I have been shooting for 60 mins of cardio 6 times a week, and a couple days of weights sprinkled in. Cardio has been either treadmill or outdoor runs and spin alternating every other day. I have been pretty consistent with this, now to rein the eating back in, as cold weather and sleep depravation make you crave junk in the worse way. Right now I am shutting down the laptop and going to start on dinner and pour a glass of wine. Hope everyone has a good weekend and I promise to be back soon .
