Happy Halloween!!!!

I love the opportunity to play dress up and be someone else for a night.  My new husband also likes to decorate the house.

Here's a photo tour of our living room

My Ghosty - I used to have a haunted house to match, but my mom got rid of it after I got my finger in the outlet one day when I plugged it in when I was 4.

On Monday night Matt and I carved our pumpkins.  I went simple this year, as we didn't start until 9 pm.  Matt kept laughing at me as I pulled out the "guts"  It should be gross, but I always think its a little fun to clean out the insides of the pumpkins :)

10 days

I've been married for all of 10 days and already my husband is leaving me.  No, we didn't have a fight, but he does have to go away for work.  And it stinks.  At least this should be the last unexpected trip away that he takes for awhile.  We just found out late Sunday night that he was going to have to leave this morning - thanks political season. 
On the positive side, due to the long hours he worked last weekend, plus this trip away, plus his hours coming up this weekend - should mean that he will be off all of next week.  It will be nice to have some quality time with him!  And I will also appreciate his help in cleaning and helping me put away our wedding gifts which are still sitting on the ping pong table in the basement.
We did get a chance to carve our pumpkins last night :)  Stay tuned for some Halloween pictures.  My new husband is a champion decorator :)

Is it possible to be homesick, even when you are "home"
I got a letter from home today, something random my mom would send me, just like I was in college.  A letter and a random newspaper article that she thought I would find interesting.  Opening it made me feel far from home, just like I did in college.
Maybe it's just that my new home still doesn't quite feel like home yet (although I've finally started calling it our house! - at least most of the time ;). 
Oh well, since M is working long hours all weekend, I'll have plenty of time at "home" to rest and relax and try to settle in and feel more at home here.
Happy weekend everyone!

I need to find a gym
Enough said.
It's getting colder outside and I'm not motivated to do my own thing anymore.  The wedding is now over and now I need to get back into a good healthy routine and start working out everyday after work.  I don't think it will ever happen that I will be able to get up and go before work again, not with a certain someone who really likes to mess with my sleep schedule.
I know I feel better after I am active, but it sure has been hard this year to motivate myself to go after a mentally exhausting day.  I can't seem to get out of the rut I've been in.  My running is improving, but the motivation just isn't there.  I wonder what the missing piece is right now.
Oh well, tomorrow is a new day, and a chance to try again.
And this weekend I'll go gym hunting... again.  That's one of the bigger things I miss after moving is the gym I used to have access to.  It was pretty state of the art - lots of classes, suspended running track, TVs on nearly all of the cardio machines, a pool, a hot tub, a nice locker room.  And affordable!
But part of my new life now is my new house and a new city.  Which means off to find a new gym I go.  Wish me luck!
