The best half of November ever!!

Nov 1st-
I worked 3 hours and then VACAAAAAAATION started!!!! Bailey and I went to El Nopal where I ordered a delicious bowl of guacamole...

Or not. I wasn't even going to argue with the guy.

Scott had to work 3-11 for an event, so I spent the evening at home watching NCIS:LA.

Look who got dressed up!!

My good thing: VACAAAAATION
My bad thing: I woke up at 4:04am, so I went to bed at 8:30pm

Nov 2nd-

I am not sure why I got up at 6am on VACAAAATION, but I did. I watched NCIS:LA until Bailey and Serenity got here and then she and I watched Paranormal Activity 1,2,& 3, Hocus Pocus, and The Grinch. Awesome day.

Bailey and I were crammed on the loveseat, then Callie decided to join us:

My good thing:^^^^^^
My bad thing: I wanted pizza, but despite my efforts, I could not order it online.

Nov 3-

Scott and I went to Leesville to get our Arby's on. Pretty much laid around and watched TV all day. The floor was freezing, so I put a blanket on the floor for Callie. She sniffed it, eyeballed it, walked around it. She doesn't like change.

She finally got cold enough to get on it.

Nov 4-
I slept until 9:30am. It was heavenly. Currently watching NCIS:LA, which is my only goal for today. No word on when Lily may can come home, but if she isn't home in 2 days I will drive to Shreveport just so I can hold her once.

Now I am not judging anyone's Halloween/Fall decor, but arranging your pumpkins on a poker table and a 5 gallon bucket...even I wouldn't go there.

I am not sure why our Mother likes Bailey the best:

Nov. 5th-

My thankful thing and my good thing all rolled into one:

She still has to stay for a few more days in the hospital, which is my bad thing, but SOON!!! she will be home. I will shut up now since I got to finally hold her and rub her fat cheeks.

Nov 6th-
I spent way too much time cleaning Scott's bathroom. How can a bald man accumulate so much hair at the base of the shower?

I was going to finish the last 2 discs in Elementary, but disc 6 was not in the Netflix sleeve. It's a sign from Above that I need to stop lallygagging and finish cleaning the house.
Oh and praise be the Lord, I just walked back from the mailbox to return the wrong DVD, and a downpour came right as I walked in. Well played...

My good thing: The Stars beat the Bruins
My bad thing: I feel like I have the flu, only not dead

Nov 7th-
For this entire vacation, I have only slept past 6am ONCE.
Went to town with Rebecca, made a mental note of all the things I want for my birthday and Christmas, then I coerced her into coming over and hanging a curtain, because let's face it, if I did it, it would be crooked.

After living here since April, I finally covered the bathroom window. Sorry, neighbors.

Bailey came over to watch hockey so my team will for sure win. They did, in overtime. She also had a cat in her shirt.

Dude!! I bought this rug for $2.99!!!!

Which happens to be My good thing ^^^
My bad thing: I can't shake this headache. I am not a fan.

Nov 8th-

Since she still isn't coming home, Happy one-month old day to Lily!!!

I actually laid in bed until 9am. Like a rebel.
This is my last vacation day to do nothing, tomorrow I have places to go, people to avoid. Sunday I go back to work.
And OMG on Fringe!!! I am in the middle of season 3. Olivia/Leonard Nimoy. My mouth drops...

Nov 9th-
Last day of vacation. It's been relaxing, but nothing happened as planned. Lily is still in the hospital, and I didn't do any yard work or clean out my spare room. Today was plan-filled, and yet I have only left the bedroom to clean the living room and do the dishes.
So far I have watched 4 discs of NCIS:LA, so the day wasn't a total bust. I knocked over a glass of Kool Aid on top of my phone, books, magazine, and my very treasured Game Program from my last Braves game.

The Alabama/LSU game was fantastic.
I was so into it at the end that when I picked up the basket of clothes in front of the washer/dryer, I folded them, put them away, and hung up what needed to be hung up. When I got to the very bottom of the basket I noticed a rug from the bathroom. It was slightly damp. Then I said O...M...G. The entire basket was dirty. I unfolded dirty socks, dug out the dirty underwear, took off hangers the dirty pants....and them put them all in the washing machine. Big fat fail. Now I am smelling everything before I put it on to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Nov 10-
Yay back to work.
I suppose that could be my good and bad thing. I am very thankful to have a job, because it isn't easy here to find a job that doesn't suck, but I would rather have spent today in my comfy bed with Callen and Deeks.

Nov 11-
I am convinced my bedroom is haunted. When I got off work I changed clothes and went straight to watching NCIS:LA. I was on the bed, watching the show on the laptop, and the screen kept doing weird things like I was right clicking on the mouse. I was not right clicking on the mouse, I wasn't touching it. It got so bad I couldn't even shut the laptop down normally, I had to hold the button down. While I was waiting for everything to reboot, I grabbed the Kindle. If you own one, you know that when you tap the middle of the screen while reading, it pulls up a bar at the bottom and top to navigate. Only when you tap the screen. It kept doing it over and over, minus me touching it. I just left the room I was freaking out. I go back in, the laptop is normal, but my closet door was OPEN!! It was not open before, there is no way I could lay it bed with it open. Scott said it was because when I closed it earlier there was a shirt there, but I was officially freaked. And that's not ALL. Later, Scott came in the bedroom, then left. It drives me nutso when Callie's nails drag against the floor. I could hear her at the foot of the bed, and said to Scott "omg you let her in here, she's driving me nuts". Yeah....Callie was not in the bedroom. I am doomed.
My good thing: I didn't die
My bad thing: I am going to die

Nov 12-
It's supposed to get super cold tonight. I am excited!
My good thing: Pizza for dinner!!
My bad thing: I am really wanting a Dt Mtn Dew. Day 4.....

Nov 13-

Happy Birthday to me!!!!
I had a good day, Lori Tate sang to me, I was showered in gifts. 2 gifts, but whatever.
I got cake...

I didn't have to cook dinner, we had Chili's takeout.

And I am preparing for slumber....I receive a Tweet
Little Texas birthday blog

I finally went to sleep.
Great birthday.

My good thing: the entire day
My bad thing: I MISSED THEM SINGING TO ME!!!!!!!!

Nov 14-
Look who made the paper, yo!

Went with Scott and Kayla for my birthday dinner, caught up with old friends. Stuffed my face.
The sky was beautiful on the way:

My good thing: I actually had a good time interacting with real people
My bad thing: I can't shake these sinus issues

Nov 15-
Off day!!!! Bailey and I, of course went to El Nopal for lunch..

A pic of her and her BFF:

And because she admitted to never reading my blog, she will never see the original pic I took:

My good thing: I got a new porch mat

My bad thing:
My lovely dog....

I just bought them yesterday, she not only ate the sock in two places, but she ate the wrapping, which was all over the floor

So there you go. Part one of November.
I leave you with a picture from my cousin's house. The stockings for Scott, Hayden, Logan, and Tracy
