C took me out for my birthday last night and we had so much fun! First, I bought new skinny jeans with a birthday check from my in-laws, and thanks to Old Navy's vanity sizing I had to return them, twice, to get smaller sizes. So, all dressed up we hit BK (KLASSY) and the roller derby. The roller derby was a blast and I may be fantasizing, just a little bit, about trying out in January. I need to come up with a good name though. There was a girl last night named Hari Kari and her number was 51/50 (the civil code for being involuntarily committed to a psych hospital in CA). Too fun. On top of that, C won me a raffle prize that was donated by the cosmetology school. So I am now the proud owner of two shades of fake bangs (pink and red/black) and three different colors of shatter nail polish (plus a lot of other, less awesome stuff). It was probably one of my top three birthday dates ever. Today the kids and I are lying low, doing crafts and putzing around the house. I'm working on an embellished t-shirt for Syd and Eli wants to re-carve a pumpkin since his rotted so bad he didn't even argue when we tossed it. Tomorrow I'm thinking of playing hooky to go to the daycare's costume parade, then trick-or-treating and dinner. I have a whole post about how when work gets super stressful it seems like home stuff gets super awesome, but for now it's nice to be so content and have a true break from all the layoff BS. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of my kids in their super cute, super awesome costumes.
