Finally feeling good again after the bronchitis. I hate being sick.

We saw Jimmy Fallon at Comedy Works on Thursday, that was super fun.

Today: need to clean my kitchen and maybe get a Halloween costume. I'm such a procrastinator.

To hades with the bronchitis, I say!! To hades!!

I am feeling much better and actually got out of the house tonight for a few hours. Just took some cough medicine and waiting for it to kick in before I hit the hay.

I played Wii bowling tonight, and I am a supreme champion. :) During my Wii breaks, I sipped wine and Fat Kid (Chris & Katy's kitty) lounged on my lap. Nothing better than that, I say.

Good times.

A Snapshot in Time (borrowed from another blog I read)

I am wearing grey lounge pants and a grey and yellow football jersey.
I am reading Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks.
I just finished The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
I am hearing Cleo and Diesel snoring in unison.
I am learning how to make perfect pizza dough.
I am thankful for my family.
I am eating biscuits and gravy. Saturday morning classic.
I am bringing beauty to my home by trying to be a better wife every day.
I've never been a fan of watching sports.
Around my house it's pretty quiet today, animals all being lazy. A few dirty dishes strewn about.
Outside my window is a cooler, windy day. I love October.
I am thinking about how I desperately need to find a new gym now that ours closed down.
One of my favorite things is my new bed. I'll say it again. Sweet Bliss.
A few plans for the rest of the week... today, picking the folks and gram up from the airport. Cleaning the house, trying some new recipes... Great American Beer Fest on Thursday.
