This week has been busy. Good thing my weekend was fun and relaxing at the same time. The first nice thing that happened was Love went on a little nature walk with me down our river trail. He hasn't done this since last spring so you can imagine how much I love it. The next best news for me was Friday. My boss has changed my job description in such a way that I will be much happier at work from here on out. Being that I was close to either changing positions or leaving the company, this couldn't have come at a better time.
After that great news and as the Friday workday came to an end, Love and I accompanied my friend, sexychoco, to a local amusement park. Every year during the Halloween season Lagoon hosts Frightmares- which is basically just the amusement park coupled with spooky entertainment shows, haunted houses, and monsters. I had never been to Lagoon, and Love had been bugging me to go since we moved here, so we went. It was so much fun! I can't remember the last time I rode a roller coaster and I can't, for the life of me, figure out why it's been so long. We rode four roller coasters and had a wonderful time laughing, screaming, and eating lots of junk food.
Saturday, I got to be part of a "Witches Night Out." My friend Ashley, who often comments here, planned the whole thing. She made us a delicious spaghetti dinner- yes Ashely it was delicious even though I don't normally like spaghetti...so...smile- and then we all went to Gardner Village. It was cold and raining, but we did a little shopping, had our fortunes told- I'd rather not discuss mine- and I bought some delicious vanilla tea and some chocolate fudge.
Sunday was family dinner...at my
house tiny apartment. I cooked up a yummy roast, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, and a cake for my Brother-In-Law- we were celebrating his birthday. It was a lot of work, but it was so nice to have family visit our humble abode...even if we were a little cramped. To top it off, the Boston Red Sox are going to the World Series and the Denver Broncos beat the Steelers.
Here are a FEW photos from this weekend, enjoy!
