So it begins. Sweets, sweets & more sweets. From now until the end of the year we will indulge in massive food fests. Weight Watchers? Yeah, right!
Our girls are too old for trick or treating, but my nephew, David, will be coming over to t&t around here. I will probably stay behind to hand out candies to the little ones and not so little ones. I honestly can't stand the big kids that come by. When I say big kids, I mean BIG kids! About 15, 16 & 17. They come with no costume and carrying a pillowcase. Very obnoxious most of the time. But I give them candy anyway. Simply because I am afraid of them! :) But when they ring my bell at 11PM, that's when I get mad and send Danny out there to deal with them.
I will have to restrain myself from the one for you, one for me phenomenom. It shouldn't be too hard since I purposely did not buy any Kit Kats or Twix or my new favorite Take 5!
As I type I have already opened up 2 little boxes of Dots and I have them stuck to my molars. Gotta go up and Water Pik!
Have a safe & relatively sugar free Halloween!

With the holidays approaching, I am just posting this public service announcement to all men. This is done in an attempt to assist them in not buying the Wrong Holiday Gift.

Today is an incredibly fantabulous, beautifully perfect day. Days like today remind me of the only reason that I enjoy living in Miami. There are so many reasons not to want to live here anymore though. Starting with, but not limited to, the $2000 increase for our home insurance.
So here are our requirements.
* No hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes...... heck, no natural disasters of any type!
* Affordable cost of living.
* A beach house would be nice.
* Friendly neighbors.
* Pleasant weather. I hate the cold.
I'm sure that there are a bunch more, but I can't think of them right now.
Anyhoo, I need to learn how to work this Blogger thing. I finally figured out (actually by accident) how to put my profile on the sidebar. Now, I need to find out how to put my photo slides on the sides. Not on the side bar but on the brown sides. Any ideas?
EDIT: Ok, now I got the sliders on but it's still not how I want it. Hopefully I will get it right eventually. By mistake of course. LOL!

It doesn't matter that I have seen this movie a gazillion times and that I practically know it by heart. I still cry like a baby whenever I see it. This is one of my all time favorite movies, so I will probably watch it a gazillion times more.
Spent the entire day today alternating between Lifetime & WE Network. Lazy Sunday to say the least. Although the day was absolutely gorgeous today, we all stayed home and vegged.
I was trying to log on to the Hawaii webcam for most of day and then I find out they they had a big earthquake. How scary is that? They say that the buildings were literally swaying. Praying for all those affected.
I'm still going to continue planning our trip. I decided a while back to stop being afraid of absolutely everything. I have so much to do & see, that if I let it get to me, I won't do anything at all. I am not saying that I'm going to get on that helicopter tour over the volcano, but I haven't completely ruled it out!
I am attempting to start another diet tomorrow. I was considering Nutrisystem but they charge almost $400 a month for food! So I have dusted off my WW books & I need to find my points calculator. I might consider going to a meeting or two. Not to sure about that part, I'm not the "meetings" type. I will hide in my room while my family eats & I won't let them sabotage my efforts. Wish me luck.

The rules are : List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. Tag 5 friends and list them. Then, those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people. Don’t forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!
Here are mine:
1- I don’t like tomatoes, but I like ketchup, spaghetti sauce & even bruschetta.
2- Different foods can’t be touching each other on my plate.
3- I go to Target almost every day. You never know what you’ll find!
4- I have a closet full of clothes that don’t fit, but I refuse to get rid of them.
5- I don’t bite my nails, but I bite the skin around them.
I now tag:
Mari, Grace, Lisa, Patty, & Betty.

So this is Karilyn's idea of funny. You can't tell by the picture, but these balloons are HUGE! They barely fit in the car!
Well, although I am thankful to have had another year of life, I am kinda peeved about the actual number. So I guess that from now until forever I will claim to be 39.
I am watching Grey's. My goodness! This show is chock full of hunks! McDreamy, McSteamy & McVet! None of my doctors ever looked like that!

I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I hate Frogs! It doesn't help that we have to share our home with these vile creatures. They are everywhere! Just waiting to jump out at me! I wouldn't mind so much I guess, if they would do what they are supposed to do, and eat the skeeters. And stay out of my way. But they don't. They just mate and make more babies. Then they sit there and look at me with those ugly, beady frog eyes! PLUS they poop all over the place! YUCK! Is there such thin as a frog repellent???????
