No Excuses...

I haven't been here, because I haven't been doing anything interesting. After I blogged last, the weather here took a turn for the worst, and it started SNOWING! I kid you not, we got 2 inches of snow overnight, and it was a very chilly halloween! The kids had to bundle up super well, and we were only able to stay out for an hour an a half before we all lost feeling in our toes. I will try to get the photo from my friend, but we even saw a snow jack-o-lantern! Someone made a big snowball, carved out the middle and carved a face into it before lighting up the inside with a candle. Coolest thing I have ever seen!

I did start my November goals, and have been diligently trying to avoid the donuts that come into the office, and all the leftover and discounted halloween chocolate. Not doing too bad. Thankfully, I have just found added motivation in the form of Run to the Finish's 2010 HolidayBootie Buster Challenge!

The system is similar to what I am following, a value for certain activities, and the person with the most points wins a prize, along with some random winners. I will not win top place, but I am game to try and be more accountable. Anyone interested in joining (or just stalking my progress and calling me out when I am failing) can check out the spreadsheet and sign themselves up.

K, will check in soon, promise! I have photos of my new Ryder sunglasses to share!


  1. Snow, wow. We had it in the forecast, but no sign yet.

  2. ugh....snow :( Luckily, we haven't had any yet either! I know it will be here soon though...

  3. Nice to know someone else is crazy enough to do the challenge! Do we have an advantage because we don't have Thanksgiving to burn off?

    I remember having snow on Halloween once when I was a kid (rare, living in Vancouver). My dad put our pumpkin up as the snowman's head. :)

  4. Argh snow. It happens so suddenly, I know one morning I'll wake up and it will be covering the ground. :-(
