This was a successful week! It was also a busy week. I took my dad to the chiropractor on Tuesday. We got the new dishwasher installed on Thursday, after three months of delays and stress. And, through it all, horrorthon continued! I’m so proud of everyone who has contributed and I’m so thankful to all of you who have taken the time to read!
We’ve got three more weeks to go until Halloween! They’re going to be great. This is my favorite time of year. Supposedly, on Tuesday, the long-promised storms will start to arrive. There’s nothing I love more than rain in October. Well …. no, actually, there are things that I love more. I mean, that would be kind of sad if I loved a weather event more than my boyfriend or my family. But, with all that in mind, I am definitely a fan of the rain.
Anyway, here’s what I watched, read, and listened to this week. It’s kind of a short list considering that this is October but, as I said, it was a busy week!
