Weekend roundup & upcoming events

The weekend was really, really fun. Pumpkins turned out fabulous- Ben actually carved one this year, rather than refusing like last year.

Halloween itself was a great day. Started things with kickboxing class at 24 hour fitness- we kicked to "Thriller" and the Ghostbusters theme song. Then I voted for the first time EVER. Yay for me! I'm being a responsible citizen!

The rest of the weekend continued to be great- dinner and bowling with Evan and Jamie Kleinhenz, Day of the Dead party with the Anderson's... it was a really fun time.

I wish the coming weekend could be as fun as last weekend, but I don't think that's going to happen... which leads to the "upcoming events" portion of my post.

In 3 days... actually like 2 days and 23 hours... I will have my dreaded foot surgery. Actually, I shouldn't gripe, since this surgery is 100% elective. Anyway, I'm having a bunionectomy (not sure if that's the real word for it) to get rid of the nasty bun on my right foot. I'm taking almost 2 weeks off work for recovery and my mom is coming to Utah to take care of me! Thanks momma! Also, I'll be spending 6 days in Indiana during my recovery, so I can be drugged up and whatnot on my parent's couch.

Wish me luck on my surg...hopefully I don't die. Not like I would, but I had to make my hope known. Feel free to visit me post-surg, since I do love visitors (as long as my house is clean).

Also, here's a little gem from Benjamin. When describing a specific person he doesn't like, Ben said, "He has the emotional maturity of a rhinocerous. " Ahhh Benjamin, you keep me young.
