Uggs are on, Fall is here

So, I've officially given up any hope of an Indian summer, and am getting to be OK with the thought of Fall actually being here. The summer flew by faster than rabbit trying out outrun Lil' Pup (unfortunately for the rabbit, that rarely happens) but all I know is summer is gone and I am trying to not be incredibly annoyed when I wake up to 50 degree temperatures and the heat is officially been turned on.

I did however, have an amazing weekend in the Hampton's with the Family and my God-Mother who is a saint and the best hostess ever.

On the docket today for things to talk about are the following.

1) My boots have not arrived yet, but I am anxiously awaiting the box to be left on the front porch.

2) I have my dance class tonight, and though I am so tired, I am looking forward to waking up a bit and of course for seeing my BF "M".

3) Probably the most important of all is a choice of Halloween costumes. M is having a blow out party this year, as she did last year, and I have to be able to outdo my outfit last year (which was a big hit!) but I don't feel like dealing with buying something that I'll never wear again. Plus, I hate that Halloween is an excuse for girls to dress like sluts. I mean, where did this notion come from? It confuses me to the bitter end, and when searching online for things to wear, the only things I liked were those that were not made in my size (Winnie the Poo, Tigger, a big soft fluffy dog with ears and cute tail!) Alas, apparently as a grown woman you are not allowed to dress like a cute furry animal unless your midriff is showing and you're wearing knee high pleather boots. blah.

Someone tell me what to be for Halloween...please! Otherwise I'm going in my ski outfit for two reasons. 1- I'll be warm, and 2- I won't have to show any unnecessary skin unless I want to show off my ankles or my hands. And don't worry M, I'll promise to take off my ski boots before I come in the house!

So, that's what's on my mind for today, I am sure the week will bring lots more random thoughts and meandering posts, aren't you lucky readers?
I have Friday night plans with my Mom as the husbands are leaving us for the evening to participate in a golfers dinner and we are sure they will come back with some great stories as they do each year.

On top of that, there have been some late breaking developments on Project: New Company so I'll keep you posted on that. One Visa card could get a whole lot of exercise in the near future, but as Mr. Pit tells me frequently, you can't make money unless you spend money, so I am about to see how true that statement really is!

Mr. Pit is very afraid of giving the advice you have to spend money to make money.

Also, single girls dress like sluts on Halloween for obvious reasons, the married or seriously dating ones do not.

Hey hey hey!
I'm coming home for M's party, too! Have my costume all picked out, but it shall remain a surprise. Which train do you take home in the pm? If we play our cards right, we may be able to commute out to Wayne together!
