I'm not going to keep boring you with my diet, but I'm TEN POUNDS down since Sunday! I called the doctor's office this morning, because people kept telling me to, and asked the triage nurse her thoughts. "Could they have slipped a tapeworm into my fiber supplements?" She said as long as I'm not passing out, I'm fine. She suggested that I up my calories (from 1500 to 1800) and I'm like, "No thanks, this is working just fine for me." I can do this until Christmas. By then I'll be a very cute little elf. I am going to have to ask Santa for a whole bunch of really cute, really little clothes! Ok, enough about that. Reading about someone else's diet is about as much fun as reading about a root canal, right?

Meanwhile, the Halloween pictures are stuck on the CF card, so I'll have to wait until BJ gets home and reminds me how to get them off of the card to show them to you.

However, I have to take a minute to complain. What's with the kids in the white t-shirt and jeans and slicked back hair who are 50s dudes, who don't even have a pack of Pall Malls rolled up in their sleeves? Where's the realism?? And what about the "hobos" who are wearing an old flannel shirt and jeans. At least put some dirt on your face and mess your hair up. Put in a little effort, ok? And I'll tell you what, the next teenager who comes to my house is getting a Trick, instead of a Treat. Seriously. Get a job and go buy candy if you're over 15, ok?

What's your cut off age for trick or treating in your family?

I did manage to get some serious cleaning of the kitchen, dining room, and living room done while BJ has been out with the kids. I worked up a sweat, so you know it looks better. The Roomba is hard at work picking up the dog hair. Yeurrgh. I really need to vacuum and stuff tomorrow. People walking past the house in black pants are getting covered with dust and fur. It's just wrong.

What did you do tonight?

The news I'm listening to just suggested that people get in line to vote this weekend. What is this, a rock concert? Everyone I know has voted early. I haven't had the opportunity, because Allison was sick last week. But, I'm going to vote Tuesday, and if there's a line, well, that will just be weird.

WOW! Congrats on the 10 pounds, that's huge!!!

The first kids that came to the door didn't have costumes, but I gave them candy anyway because we don't get many trick or treaters. I think we had a record high last night of 25 kids. :)

I'm excited to see the girls in their costumes! Send pictures soon!
