mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week, my friends? With Chet still out of town, I’ve been holed up getting work projects done during the day and watching ridiculous movies at night (and eating super, single-lady burritos for dinner, ha!). I’ve barely left the house since getting back from California! Speaking of, would you be interested in reading what I did in L.A.? I’m thinking about posting something on Friday. 🙂 Hope you have a magnificent evening, and here are some links for your reading pleasure…

Hope everyone had a fun Halloween! Did you do anything spooky? Dress up in a costume? We ventured down to Homestead and enjoyed an afternoon walking along Biscayne Bay and laying out by the beach. Then we headed home for a chili dinner and “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Despite my best door decorating efforts, we didn’t get any Trick-or-Treaters. WOMP-womp. But I think Chet’s students appreciated our candy surplus on Monday! ; ) Now I’ve got a busy few days of work and preparation ahead of me because this time next week I’ll be on my way to New Orleans! Woohoo! Enjoy your Wednesday and a few links…
